Pizzeria Napoletana da Yuki

What should you expect from a restaurant whose owner has spent a great deal of time in Naples, mastering vital culinary techniques, crucial to pizza making? Some good Italian home-cooking for sure. This petite establishment has a bar adjacent to the seating area, a more traditional style of decor in keeping with Japanese culture. This contrasts with the deliciously authentic pizzas, antipasti and desserts that chef Yuki serves; each dish contains a true taste of Naples.
