The biggest of their three locations, SaMo’s new Umami pizzeria can seat up to 120 people. So even though you could just pick up your pie on the way home, you might as well stay and mingle with the other night owls. Chatting with a cute girl over a slice of vognole with fresh clams, pecorino, and garlic is infinitely better than eating a sloppy piece of pepperoni in your living room.
