Napoli to New York

Pizza originated in Napoli where the first pizza was commissioned for the Queen Margherita in 1889. Years later it journeyed to New York by way of Italian immigrants where the first pizzeria opened its doors in 1905. Our commitment is to preserve the original fundamentals of authentic pizza Napolitana while fusing it with elements of New York style pizza. This results in a unique style in which we like to call “Napoli meets New York."
