Cheap Eats 2007

Alberta's Bella Faccia co-owner Linda Zumoff has struck out on her own in the uncharted wilds of Kenton with this hip, friendly pizza and pasta joint. Crisp, thin-crusted pies ($9-$14 12-inch, $16.50-$23 18-inch) are light on sauce but big on freshness, with a near-perfect cheese-to-topping ratio. Choose from 13 tasteful combinations, from simple pepperoni to clams and pecorino, or create your own. Start off with a "small" antipasti plate that would make a decent lunch for one($6). For variety, there's a full menu of pastas and sandwiches. Now that's-a-nice.

Want a little more class with your cheese? Brand-new North Portland spot Pizza Fino has a large sit-down menu of pasta and sandwiches, served in a glossy dining room - but who cares? Call ahead and pick up a tasty, thin-crusted pizza topped with local, organic goodies from pancetta to pine nuts, and be happy.
