I have never been to Naples, but what I had for lunch here tasted like what I imagine real Neopolitan pizza should be. Well the two owners, Daniele and Ambrogio Florio were born in Naples and raised on the Almafi coast so I am probably right. I like lots of kinds of pizza, but this is some of the best I have eaten. The Saliccia e Funghi has a thin crust with a bit of crunch and is very nicely topped with San Marzano tomatoes, bufala mozzarella, mushrooms and sausage. All nicely blended without any one overpowering the flavors. We started with an insalata mista sapori which is mixed greens, tomato, avocado, black olives, mixed nuts and goat cheese dressed with a balsamic vinegar and oil. Fresh, crisp and tasty.

A bonus is that it is pretty much a bargain as my wife, son and I shared both the salad and the pizza and were well satisfied. So, with soft drinks, we had lunch for 3 for just over $30 including tax and tip.

They also feature several pasta dishes and desserts which look tempting, as well as some panini lunch specials. Will explore the menu further next time.

This is a great addition to downtown Decatur.
