Via Tribunali has been called “more authentic than the pizzerias of Naples,” and even though that is a flattering exaggeration, it is fair to say that our pizzerias have grown out of an almost unnatural passion for the food and wine of Southern Italy.
Neapolitan pizza embodies the essence of what authentic Italian pizza should be; soft, well-cooked, fragrant and enclosed in a high, soft edge of crust. As a member of the Verace Pizza Napoletana Association, Via Tribunali respects the culinary discipline associated with making authentic Neapolitan pizza. Specific preparation, ingredients and method of cooking are essential to recreating the tradition of pizza as it began in Naples. Hand-kneaded dough, ingredients imported from Naples, and a wood-burning Vesuvius brick oven lend to the unique characteristics of Via Tribunali’s pizza.
Via Tribunali features an authentic handmade wood-burning brick oven. Everything used in the construction of the oven was imported from Naples, including the bricks made from the ashes of Mt. Vesuvius and the master craftsman who assembled it. In Italy, brick ovens are considered an art, no different than fashion in Milan or glass in Venice. Using Vesuvius bricks allows the wood-burning oven at Via Tribunali to achieve higher temperatures than those made from regular bricks. Understandably, the oven’s unique characteristics and aesthetics have made it an icon at Via Tribunali.
