Lucali, the Miami outpost of Mark Iacono's famed Brooklyn flagship, opened in Sunset Harbour in March 2013. At first sight, it looks like a regular pizza joint. Furnishings seem unassuming -- mismatched tables and chairs, an open kitchen, a working bench occupied by pizza-makers in cotton T-shirts -- but by candlelight, everything glows. Men clad in white shine with sweat as they use empty wine bottles to roll dough. Pizza-makers take their time prepping pies for the wood-burning oven. Crusts eventually emerge thin and blistered, their surfaces puffed by blackened bubbles of golden dough. Melted buffalo mozzarella and shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cocoon smooth tomato sauce -- a secret recipe that can be ordered as a side dish for $1.50. The 24-inch pizzas start at $24. Beef pepperoni, artichokes, onions, red peppers, shallots, porcini mushrooms, and hot peppers cost an additional buck or more. Any combination works. Regardless of what you choose, it'll be an utterly flawless pie -- the best one in town.
