Who says that a true pizza one can eat only in Naples.

“Vera pizza napoletana”

History of Neapolitan pizza.

Born in Naples, raised in Montréal.

Neapolitan pizza had humble beginnings, a common food for the poor people living around Naples Italy 300 years ago. Neapolitan pizza was sold in open-air stands in the crowded streets of Naples.

Authentic Neapolitan pizza, also known as pizza Napoletana, is a traditional style of pizza that originated in Naples, Italy. It is made with simple, fresh ingredients and cooked in a wood-fired oven at a high temperature for a short amount of time.

What make an authentic neapolitan pizza?

The crust should be soft, slightly chewy, and have a puffy rim, also known as the “cornicione.” The wood-fired oven imparts a smoky flavor that cannot be replicated in a regular oven.

This is by FAR the best pizza place I’ve ever found. It tastes fresh, the crust is baked to perfection and they make it in a wood oven. The atmosphere is really nice, whether you wanna do a night out with friends or study while eating delicious pizza, this is the place for you!

You also get to choose your own toppings. I definitely recommend.

11/10 would recommend. I came here Saturday for an event with at large group. They were super accommodating and we were able to get the whole back section reserved for us. It’s a perfect venue if you’re a large group and want a private space to yourself :)

It was so spacious that we were all able to walk around/stand/socialize among the tables. The walls with floral additions were great for taking photos!

Neapoletan pizza doesn’t have fathers, doesn’t have owners, it’s the fruit of neapolitan geniality.
