Rating: Really authentic Neapolitan Pizza
My brother spent the whole week talking up this Neapolitan style pizza joint just over the border into DC.
They have a classic big wood fired pizza oven.
A delicious but simple arugula salad.
Fried salt cod fritters. Vaguely like crab cakes, but fishier. Still, very good examples of these.
The classic cheese pizza. The dough here was really really good. Neapolitan flour and slow fermentation for sure. This was a pizza dough good enough to munch through all the remaining crust.
“Santa Brigida Tomato, fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, arugula.”
“Calabrese Tomato, onions, anchovy, fresh mozzarella, parsley, olives.” A classic anchovy pizza. Strong salty flavors, but still really good.
“Ripieno Extra Ricotta, grana, salami, prosciutto, pancetta, tomato.” Full of cheesy meaty goodness inside.
In the front is the “Puttanesca Tomato sauce, rapini, fresh mozzarella, garlic, anchovy, hot pepper.” An interesting combination of bitter and salty.
Dessert, although we were too stuffed to order any.
