Squadritto Ristorante
From the cuisine of our neighbouring country to one on the other side of the Atlantic. There are many italian food restaurant around the world, but how many of them prepare their food with traditional recipes? of how many of them can say they serve the real pizza napoletana? Not many, but this is one of them. Their preparation and cooking methods are traditional, and that’s the reason why they do not mass produce their food. You will know this is worth it when you taste the melted cheese, the fresh tomatoes and the delicious pasta.
