This tapas-style restaurant is more casual than its sister restaurants in the growing Angelo Elia empire, but it still provides first-class elegance and healthy portions of both light and hearty Italian fare. Tapas range from familiar to exotic: buffalo mozzarella with prosciutto di Parma, tempura zucchini flowers with mozzarella, and grilled provolone over radicchio. Escarole and beans with roasted sweet Italian sausage is full of flavor, and every pizza is delicate and thin-crusted, just like you’d find in Napoli. Try the basilico bruschetta, served in traditional style with diced tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, and pair it with a bold bottle of red Tuscan wine.

Founders Christopher DelPrete and Rand Carswell, who first started out with Miami Press Food Truck in 2012, bring 15 years of culinary experience with them and a knack for chef-inspired gourmet fare. The name was born out of wordplay – all the sandwiches are pressed – but DelPrete and Carswell decided to give each sandwich a newspaper-themed name. And thus, a theme was born.

And it’s not always offered, but if Pria is making his cilantro soup when you visit, be sure to order a bowl.
