The place looks great, gotta give it a try when in NYC.

Great pictures of the oven found here...does anyone know who built it?

Also, on a side note...I've been trying to find the supplier for the olive oil can found in one of the Keste pictures in the Slice Serious post.  I have seen it in pictures many times but cannot find it.  Any help would be appreciated.



Got lucky & picked this up on ebay for $15 including shipping.

Heard an NPR story this morning about a pizza making contest - hearing the name Roberto caught my attention so I listened to the rest of the story figuring it involved Keste. The link can be found by googling NPR, keste and pizza contest (I don't think I have priv's to post a URL here). Some good press for Keste, even though the dough recipes submitted would be scoffed at here...I wonder if Roberto had a hard time "allowing" those pies into his oven. I know I still shudder thinking about the time my wifes friend brought over tofu pepperoni...

Hey John,
I got a little lucky on this find.  I was searching under "oil cruet" & didn't find any I liked.  I then searched under "oil can" & this baby popped up.  The oven is working fantastic!  I had a few people over yesterday & made some pretty awesome pizze.  The oven was super hot (960 floor & 1100 dome) so I had to move fast.  I made Antonino Esposito's Vesuvio pizza which was a huge hit along with his calzone's which were also out of this world.  Good luck today!

Hi David,

Thank you for posting the 2 links - they were great !

I am pleased that Roberto is getting good press. He was a very gracious host when I visited him a few years ago at A Mano in New Jersey.

Also, the pizza trip to Naples, Italy was pure dejavu , especially the visit to Salvo out of town.

Thanks again.

Kind regards.

I have been looking for an Oliera like this since this thread.  I finally found someone (on Italian Ebay) who has 3 sizes, .25L, .5L & .75L & ships to the USA.  Prices seem reasonable too at $19, $45 & $54 dollars respectively.  We'll see what shipping comes in at...

I'm looking to get a bigger one as the one that I have is .25L.  Shipping to Canada is $20 euros, which isn't bad.  I'm going to Florence & Rome in March & will look for one there.
