Gino’s Trattoria and Pizzeria (Summerville)

All praises for an authentic pizzeria in Summerville! And, I’m the lucky one that get to enjoy this restaurant often because it’s close to my job. The affordability of the meal is noteworthy too. 
For starters, a salad with a side of olive lemon dressing. You know when you go to a pizzeria, sometimes the salads come with wilted greens. Not this one.

The nice server then brings out the most fantastic garlic bread, and when dipped in their special, house-made balsamic dressing, moaning came out of my mouth. They make their bread in house also. 

For some reason, I’ve been particularly fond of the bianca pizza lately (bianca meaning “white” in Italian, without sauce in other words). 
Mozzarella, ricotta, parmigiano, and feta cheese on the soft chewy crust was so savory. I thought I would need a side of sauce, just in case, as a dip. No, the pizza did not need it. The sweetness of the cheeses and my own addition of spicy crushed red peppers created a euphoric marriage of flavors.
The good: The use of fresh ingredients can be tasted in the dishes. Truly delicious, affordable, authentic, and special.  
The bad: The server said the menu may change (but I’m sure anything on the menu is delectable).
The conclusion: A Naples native has opened a restaurant in Summerville. Yes, this is serious. And if you don’t experience this, you’re to blame. This is what pizza truly is, and should be.
