Editorial Review of Scoozi!

Got a craving for pizza but hoping for something a little classier than plastic tablecloths? Scoozi! fits the gussied up bill with a two-story dining area that features soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls and buttery leather banquettes. Quirky touches like garage doors lend the space and artsy flair that's just in keeping with its gallery-district environs.

A high-energy staff amps up the restaurant and jubilant crowds pour in on the weekends (tourists never shy away from this place). Luckily, the roomy space can accommodate more than 300 pizza eaters. But if you do need to wait, snag a spot at the roomy bar and order up one of the house's tasty concoctions. The Pink Ice Bellini blends lemon ice, Absolut Mandrin and cranberry juice, and the Orangecello martini goes down like a spiked creamsicle, both $8.95.

The Italian-countryside-style menu includes a good selection of pasta and seafood. The pumpkin gnocchi ($12.95) served with nutmeg, fresh ginger and roasted pumpkin is a customer favorite. Specials showcase the chef's creativity: Expect dishes like sea bass served with sweet corn sauce. Pizzas come classic (mozzarella and tomato) or dusted with more upscale accoutrements: try the goat cheese pizza ($8.50-$12.95) with sun-dried tomatoes and spinach.

On Sundays, little ones are invited to don mini aprons and whip up their own pizzas; great if you're a parent, a little less fantastic if you're looking for a quiet place to grab a bite.

Average cost: $10-$20
