El PatronIf you haven’t ventured over to the Hollins Market area recently (possibly since the days of the departed Cultured Pearl, Gypsy’s Cafe and Tell-tale Hearth), Zella’s Pizzeria will give you reason to make the trip. The sunny, cheerful interior is a backdrop for classic, informal Italian fare: pizza, calzones, lasagna and ravioli, as well as paninis and salads. Pizzas are available in 10- and 16-inch sizes, and offer dozens of topping options, such as grilled chicken, pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, prosciutto and feta cheese. Owners Julie Ernst and Cem Ari have created a bright spot in this somewhat neglected neighborhood— here’s hoping it starts a trend there. Carryout and delivery available. Open for lunch and dinner; closed on Tuesdays. 1145 Hollins St., 410-685-6999
