“This is the place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Everything you've heard is true. Fantastic authentic pizza, hugely crowded, hugely popular. Naples comes to Sydney's north shore and thank heavens for that. Great service, great atmosphere. Noisy, cheerful and spilling out onto the footpath in all directions. Choose a warm night, grab some friends and head there...

“Best pizza in Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The title says it all. Book well in advance or be prepared to wait to be seated - this place is popular. You'll soon see why.

“Authentic Neapolitan Pizza - Can't Stop Going Back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This truly is exquisite authentic Italian pizza, better than that of which I had in Naples! I have been at least five times and every time is a pleasure. Luigi - the owner - truly has a passion for providing only the highest quality traditional pizza, and the atmosphere that you are immersed in upon arrival is second to none. The service at times can be a little slow, but is totally understandable given the amount of people that are always there. I love that the authenticity of the pizzeria goes all the way to the waiters whom all appear to be Italians, which adds to the experience. I look forward to going there again as soon as they reopen on the 9th of January!

Grazie e arrivederci.

“Phenomenal Italian Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We visited Via Napoli for a birthday celebration and food was ordered for the table so I had little say in the choice. Out came plates of cold meats, which is not something I normally enjoy, but the meats they served us on this day simply amazed me, best ever! However, the star of the day was the metre long Pizza, and in particular the Pepperoni Pizza which is, without a doubt, the best Pepperoni Pizza I have ever had and I have eaten it all over the world. Friendly service and amazingly good food, what more could you ask for?

“Authentic Pizza and Neapolitan food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

A little bit "schiffo", Italian for 'rough around the edges/nasty' etc. (schiffo doesn't really translate, can be very good too!), I mean the constrained surroundings and ocassionally hit and miss service!

But the food is good and that's what counts. Best authentic Neapolitan pizza I've had in Australia. Luigi the owner chef has a passion he wants to share, I hope he finds MUCH more spacious premises soon! Go and eat here and enjoy, e basta!!
