The northeast corner of the South End keeps sprouting gleaming new towers, like the Troy apartment building that hosts this casual, hip-looking sibling to Cambridge’s original Area Four. Its wood-fired oven turns out awe-inspiring Neapolitan-style thin crust pies (and big slices after 11 pm), notably an eminently simple, unimprovable Margherita. It’s also a proper Italian restaurant and serious bar with great cocktails, wines and a long lineup of crafty draft beers.
