Well hello there! Its been a while I know. I have been meaning to tell you about one of my new favorite casual dining restaurants. NAPIZZA! Located in Little Italy on India Street this new Italian eatery has been needed for a while. I really was getting down on the selections of salads and pizza take out places. I have dined in and taken out from NAPIZZA and was impressed both times. They are sustainable, believe in slow good food, source local and organic ingredients and on top of it all....It's damn good!
The pizza is authentic and ingredients are innovative. The pie slices are square, they call them "pizza al taglio" (pizza by the cut) which became famous in Rome before spreading throughout Italy.
It's all about the dough, which takes 72 hours to evolve to the right consistency, and then cooked over 30 minutes, and delivers a light texture! A couple of my favorite flavors are:
Parmigiana - Signature tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, eggplant and parmigiano reggiano sprinkled with homemade basil pesto sauce
Truffle Porcini - Porcini mushrooms, decadent truffle cream, sprinkled with fresh mozzarella and garnished with parsley.
Also the salads are wonderful. I love how they add whole grains to most of them. They are large and hardy. Everything here is sharable! A couple of my favorites are:
Pollo - A tasty arrangement of spring mix, brown rice, savory organic chicken breast, caramelized onions, blue cheese, roasted bell peppers, farm cherry tomatoes and sprouts tossed with a refreshing basil pesto dressing.
Fisherman - A seafood lover’s favorite! seasonal local seasonal catch, quinoa, fresh avocado, wild arugula, balsamic marinated shallots, cannellini beans, homemade garlic croutons, tossed with a refreshing parsley lemon dressing.
Super Food Me - A delicious assortment of spring mix, swiss chard, quinoa, walnuts, organic avocado, blue lake beans, sprouts and apples tossed with our crisp extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing. *add organic chicken or salmon
