Una Pizza Napoletana is a minimalist restaurant that celebrates the art of pizza making. On the menu you’ll only find 3-5 ingredients including buffalo mozzarella, olive oil, 2 types of tomatoes, salt, garlic and basil. That’s it! Don’t even think about asking for any meat toppings for these pizzas because Pizza Napoletana wants you to enjoy the simplicity and the powerful flavors from these select ingredients. All pizzas doughs are handmade and baked in their wood oven which creates a great crunch in the crust and imparts a rich smokey flavor. I tried the Margherita (san marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, extra-virgin olive oil, fresh basil, & sea salt) and the Filetti ( fresh cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, fresh garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, fresh basil, sea salt ). Both were amazing but on the Margherita, the san marzano tomatoes were a little more liquid and made the pizza a little runny. The Filetti on the otherhand was perfectly done with the fesh cherry tomatoes. I would definitely recommend the Filetti for all you pizza purists. Enjoy!

    I have heard MANY things about this restaurant, but the one that is always consistent (as FM mentions) is that it is overpriced. With such basic ingredients, this doesn’t seem like a very smart business policy. Presumably they are passing their high rent over to the customers. Or am I missing something?

    Hi Fred, it’s a 12″ pizza actually (the photo is deceiving). So enough for 2 people for sure.

    Hi Joan, I thought the same thing but you really have to try it to judge for yourself. Apparently the quality of the ingredients is where you get your money’s worth. I agree though, it would be nice to just sprinkle a little spicy chorizo on top. πŸ˜‰

    Best pizza I’ve ever eaten and well worth the $$. I can’t go back to regular pizza after this.
    Ask your server for wine recommendations and you will not be disappointed.
