The other evening we went for a family dinner outing to this brilliant new pizzeria. After much overheard chit chat about Nicli Antica Pizzeria seeked and found! The space was a convered house stable from the early days and the architect took that to note bringing back the arches and brick. I loved how clean and open the space was, it felt inviting and pleasant. With modern statements, there was recognition and focus on the simple things that matter and was later very apparent when our pizza pies arrived. The hostess was very charming and told us that the pizza sauce is hand crushed so not to loose the acidic bitterness from the seeds and once placed in the specially designed wood burning oven they only take 90 seconds to cook, mind you that oven is 900 degrees. This is authenic Neapolitan pizza with flour and san marzano tomatoes there are no short cuts here. I had a great time breaking apart the pizza and diving into the mozzerella like no other (my dads eyes lit up). The meal was... speechless! bravo!
