Least Problematic Language Barrier

The husband-wife team who own Mozzeria (3228 16th Street), and nearly the entire staff, are deaf. That turns out to be no obstacle to creating a comforting dining experience nor turning out top-notch wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizzas (they're certified by theAssociazione Verace Pizza Napoletana) and arguably the best meatballs in town. All it takes is a little pointing, shrugging and smiling, and everything goes smoothly.
