Fornino: NYC: Williamsburg

This is the best pizza I've ever had (so far) in my life.  "The art and science of pizza" indeed.  Not only is the food amazing, but the service is friendly, and they have a delightful patio in the backyard that is beautifully decorated (easily romantic, if one desires to so think of it) and offers a view of the herbs they grow out back as well.
I've ordered an antipasti tasting platter there that was large and amazing:

 I've also had the wonderful chopped salad (mm fennel, ricotta, white balsamic vinaigrette, etc.), and the three pizzas I've tried so far:
-Gamberi e pesto: with rock shrimp, pesto, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and parmesan. Delicious. And the slightly burnt edges on these thin crust pies is simply marvelous.
-Funghi Misti: Yes, yes, yes! Mushrooms and white truffle oil (and caciocavallo and mozzarella), what more could you want out of life (besides pictures of the other food I've tried :[ )?

-Perhaps the Spinach and Mozzarella, spinach, ricotta, pecorino, pinenuts...and more white truffle oil?  Oh sweet god and jesus is this one good.  The best so far really (but maybe they could add some mushrooms to this one.  Then again, maybe the noises I'd make while eating it would become way too inappropriate).
