1889 Pizza Napoletana

1889 Pizza Napoletana is born from a couple's love of both Italy and Kansas City. Kelli and Jason Kolich both studied abroad in Italy when they were at the University of Kansas. Years passed, but their fondness of the country (and cuisine) did not. In 2013, Jason told Kelli he wanted to open his own restaurant concept, right where he grew up, in Kansas City. Nearly three years of research, planning, training, concepting and construction culminated in the opening of 1889 Pizza Napoletana on June 23, 2016. The duo is proud to bring authentic Neapolitan pizzas to Kansas City. What is Neapolitan style pizza? Five main components make up a Neapolitan pizza: 1) The crust is hand tossed, thin and comprised

Modern decor and hip location. Pizza is fabulous! The stone oven makes amazing crust! Service is top rate too. Also pizza comes out fast! Love the outdoor dining area surrounded by planters and string lights at night. An Oasis in North JOCO!

The charcuterie board had a honey nut substitution instead of the fig marmalade. Disappointing. The selections of meat & cheese were typical faire. Friend ate “the butcher” pizza. He left most of the crust on his plate. Seemed overcooked. There was not a good amount...More

My daughter and I split the pork belly- good choice. Very thin light crust. Pulled pork, Cole slaw, and a sweet BBQ sauce. I could definitely eat a whole pizza but half is better on my waistline! According to their website a whole margherita pizza...More
