Dropped in for dinner and had a great evening. Pizza was great, service obliging and caring. No fuss though everything works, even down to the barman personally checking on a drink order. Good value for money. We really enjoyed our experience.

The entrees and pizza were excellent. Our server was most helpful and accommodating. Make sure you save room for the gelato. A big two thumbs up.

Holy cow - they aren't kidding with that amazing gelato! But, backing up to the delicious meal I had prior to dessert; everything was wonderful including the salad, the entree and down to the great espresso. I will be back!

There is a "Pizza Evolution" happening in Naples, Italy. A handful of pizzaioli are taking this art to another level. The dough is paramount. A long fermentation & careful handling result in a light, airy, tender dough. Everything on a pizza should enhance & exalt the dough. This is the pizza that is making its way to the tables of the Napoletani. This is what we are striving for. We are specializing in hand crafted Neapolitan Style Pizza, and our Award Winning Capogiro Gelato, Salads, Focaccia Panini, Italian Wine + Beer, Craft American Beer, Cocktails, Charcuterie, Imported + Domestic Cheese, La Colombe Coffee, House-Made Pastries + Cookies.
