the method is really different, the dough balls are for sure over 250grams...  the sauce over the first layer of mozz... but the pizza looks beautiful !!!

Three spiral mixers too?This must be a set up for teaching other people.They are truly spoiled for space.Seems like the methods and style is a blend of American and Neapolitan.

There is a huge hole in the first pizza, and then they go on to slide the cheese over it to cover the hole..

My wife and went out there a few months ago (must have been just after opening) and it was a great experience. The pies were great and they took me into the back showed me their ovens and how they made the pies and even sent me home with some flour. It was fun!

I see they use San Felice (Like Brandi and Del Presidente in Naples ) though I suspect that is due to the influence of Ernesto Cacialli (who just recently passed away btw) more than anything else .

One of the all time greats if not the greatest.  A huge loss to the pizza world & will be greatly missed.  I am going to Naples in March & was really looking forward to meeting him.  I have read quite a few articles written about his passing but none seem to mention how he died.

I was there last Wednesday. It was quite good. Just had a straight up margherita. They had two of the three ovens fired. Business was steady but not crowded or brisk, but it was early, around 5PM.

They need to get their beer/wine license. They do allow BYOB. I wish I had known all that in advance.
