Over the years we’ve seen a parade of bistros rotate through this charming waterside space inside the Pier 5 Hotel— too many to mention. We hope the latest tenant, Pizzazz Tuscan Grille, stays there for a while. The attractive interiors feature vibrant red walls, black and white tiled floors and dark woods. As expected, the menu offers tons of Italian comfort classics: Fettuccini Primavera with Seasonal Vegetables, Lasagna Rollitini and Chicken Parmesan, as well as pizzas and calzones. What’s unexpected is the concentration on heallthy dining choices— they are cooking with fresh local produce whenever possible and using organic ingredients, as well as free-range eggs, grass-fed beef, all organic dairy products and imported fair trade coffees and teas. And those with dietary restrictions can find plenty to love here as well: there are lots of choices for vegetarians, vegans, those who are gluten sensitive and even raw food aficionados. Mangia! Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. (711 Eastern Ave., 410-528-7772)
