Description: 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!"

Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

Although it known as one of the pizza outlets in Kuwait city, I think that the menu should include more options for the pizza and dessert.

“Overrated and Simply Aweful”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Once again I ignored the warnings on some of the reviews and decided to go for it at my own expense. Be warned that the criticism about this 'restaurant' (and I use the word loosely!').. are all correct.. starting from the one in 2012 to the recent ones. I went with friends to this place with the hope of finding a good pizza place.. what we got was a soggy piece of pastry.. with barely anything on top... costing something like $20 each. Add the sodas to that at extortionist price and you really leave the restaurant still hungry having payed a bomb for nothing. What we got for supposedly a 'Marinara' is not the traditional real Italian seafood pizza.. but just a very thin pizza base with a soggy sauce on top..with one or two pieces of mushroom on the whole thing.
If locals really think this is authentic Italian, then this must have been the first time they ate in a restaurant! You have been warned, so try and find another pizza place as this is not worth the trip.

“This Place is Over rated and Over priced”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Lets start by saying this is the first time I write a review because of the awful experience I had. Although after all of the great reviews I read about the place I was expecting so much more. The place is very small, to some people it might be considered cozy but you practically sit with the table next to you. Their staff barely speak English so it was pretty hard to communicate with them. Also they were not that friendly. Their menu is very small so it wasn't too hard choosing what to order. I ordered a salad which was very sweet as if it was a dessert which I didn't like at all. I also ordered to pizzas and sorry to say that it was by far the worst I have ever tasted. They were very soft and wet in the middle as if you were eating baby food. Their food is also very pricy, one salad and two pizza's (which are very small) and three soda's were KD13. My wife and I both agreed that it was over rated and over priced period. We will never visit again and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

“Best pizza in town”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Solo pizza napulitana is a very cozy place that offers excellent fresh pizzas which are very reasonably priced. If you are looking for a fancy large place it's not the place for you but if you are looking for a delicious pizza away from the malls and all the jammed places then definitely this is the place for you.

“Probably the nest pizza in k-town”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

That's about enough to say: great pizza and awesome ambient. Love their spicy Nutella pizza. It's enough you see how it's made in front of you to male sure it's fresh and made only for you.
