SOLO Pizza Napulitana (SOLO) There is a little piece of Napoli located in a small corner of Sharq, in Kuwait City; where owner and Pizzaiolo, pizza maker, Amr AlRefai, wanted to introduce the concept of a true and simple Neapolitan pizza experience. Established in 2011, 'SOLO' is the first pizzeria in Kuwait to be awarded the Seal of Authenticity by the Association of True Neapolitan Pizza, "Vera Pizza Napoletana (VPN)", becoming the 353rd member in the world. This pizza is made with the freshest of ingredients, cooked in a traditional wood-fired oven built by fourth generation Neapolitans, and shipped all the way over from Napoli. Flash baked and fire kissed, SOLO's pizza, in one bite, has your taste buds begging for more. When making a pizza, artisan pizzaioli in Napoli are creating a magnificent work of art. All the flavors of Napoli: fluffy handmade dough, rare San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, lush green basil, and extra virgin olive oil come together to create this masterpiece; where "less is more". Like the traditional pizzaioli of Napoli, the pizzeria runs according to a strict code of values: simplicity, authenticity, honesty, integrity, and respect. This small pizzeria conveys all that is Napoli, where old meets new. The delightful smell of pizza baking inviting you in, creates a cozy and warm atmosphere. Step inside 'SOLO', and taking center stage, is the traditional wood-fired oven decorated in tiny tiles of smoky grey and fire red orange. Take a seat in any of the marble tables or at the bar, to get an up close view of the traditional pizza making in action. In the end, all that matters, is that a little piece of Napoli is about to be served steaming hot, right in front of you, and as the Italians say "Buon appetito!"

the best pizza place in Kuwait, I love the freshness and the taste of their pizza and they are using wood burning oven. I kept coming back to this place. Small but very cozy, I feel like I am in Napoli.

Within easy walking distance of the Marriott Courtyard. Definitely worth tracking down even though it is tucked out of the way - sort of a hole in the wall place, but friendly owners, reggae music and good hand-tossed pizza make this a pleasant place to eat.

Come early when the place is nice and empty to avoid service issues. Pizza is great especially if its made by the owners. Def worth a visit.

Very nice cozy restaurant in the heart of Kuwait City. They have the best pizza from Napoli, Italy. The owner went to Italy for months to learn how to make the best pizza. Unfortunately, the menu is small and you don't have a variety to choose from.

This IS the best pizza in town (except my much better half's!). I was recommended by an Italian friend, who is no mean cook himself, so when he waxed enthusiastically about this place I had to take it seriously. The second surprise is that the owner/chef is Kuwaiti who has managed to conquer Naples! I don't know how many non-Italians... More
