No. 246 creates a crisp appearance with white-washed walls that throw the contrasting dark wood tables and rustic pizza-paddle wall decor into sharp relief.

If you come for brunch, you'll notice the number of pizzas (topped with bacon, potato, poached eggs, and cheese) that spring from the kitchen. A dinner here would call for an order of the well-flavored Agnolotti which is served with a healthy side of greens or the gnocchi, which comes with perfectly roasted wild mushrooms.
