Positive Pie 2, Montpelier

22 State Street
Montpelier , Vermont
Tel: 802 299 0453's insider take:

In a sea of soggy-crust New England pizza chains, Carlo Rovetto's Positive Pie parlor first made a difference (and still operates in) the tiny town of Plainfield. Now, its sister restaurant brightens Montpelier. The delicious Italian food is only half the draw for the Montpelier hippies, artists, and outdoors types who gather here. The other half is the funky lounge setting, decorated with crystals and Buddha statues, in which the hand-tossed pies and homemade pastas are served. Disco lights flash against an interior brick wall; lava lamps flow; and funk, '70s, and rock bands (or at least a DJ) hit the stage most Friday and Saturday nights.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 11 am to 9 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11 am to 2 am, and Sundays noon to 9 pm.
