Pizzando opens with pies and cocktails
Pizzando in Healdsburg has opened its doors at the corner of the Hotel Healdsburg, with a rotating menu of pizza, simple appetizers, rustic sides, meats and pasta dishes.
The concept was created by Spoonbar Chef Louis Maldonado with consulting chef Liza Shaw. Serving as chef de cuisine is Ben Davies, formerly of Petite Syrah in Santa Rosa.
The pizzas include both Neapolitan-style pies made with tomato sauce as well as those without tomato sauce, known as pizza bianca.
Cocktails are crafted by Spoonbar's bar manager Cappy Sorentino and include classic Italian aperitifs such as Negronis.
The casual eatery is open 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. weekends. 301 Healdsburg Ave., 922-5233.
