Napoli’s Brick Oven Pizza
Napoli’s Pizza updates menu for 2011; new additions
In case you were wondering – Napoli’s Pizza at 1118 Washington Street recently updated their menu – expanding their pizza choices, and added a few new dishes.
Most notable, are the “specialty gourmet pizzas,” like the simple but tasty Ciao Bello (with a nice garlic punch) and The Hawaiian (pineapple & pancetta). Other items like Chicken Francese and Mac & Cheese for the kids too!
Updated review coming soon!
It seems they’re finally opening. I heard on the street that it should be TODAY, as that’s what they said when they were handing out menus to local businesses.
Their number is 201-216-0900.

They’ve finally passed Hoboken permit hell, and have re-done the outside somewhat.
Hopefully in a few weeks they’ll be serving uptown residents, along with the rest of town some delicious fresh pizza!!
Here’s a picture of the interior progress. It’s been quite a while longer than two months, but they’re getting closer!
Good news for uptown residents!
In the old Dry Cleaners spot on Washington St, between 11th and 12th, a new sit-down pizza restaurant is coming.
This new place (name yet to be determined) will feature delicious pies made with only the freshest ingredients and a rare and super high-tech brick oven which distributes the heat evenly and have your pies ready in four minutes. Finally, a New York style restaurant other than Grimaldi’s. Hopefully, they will be equal or better tasting!
Seating for around 35 people is expected. It will start out BYOB and have delivery service available.
Anticipated opening around 2 months from now, if everything goes well.
Stay tuned for more information! See below for a quick history of Pizza.

Brief history of Pizza:
- Ancient Greeks ate a flat, baked bread with assorted toppings called plankuntos. This flatbread may have been a derivative of something Babylonians ate in earlier centuries.
- While originally thought to be poisonous, Spaniards who had been to Mexico and Peru introduced the tomato to Italy in the 16th century.
- The original mozzarella cheese was made from the milk of Indian water buffalo in the 7th century. It was introduced to Italy in the 18th century.
- The world’s first true pizzeria may have been “Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba” which opened in 1830 and is still in business today at Via Port’Alba 18 in Naples.
- Italian and Greek peasants ate earlier forms of pizza for several centuries before it became a hit among aristocracy. In 1889, a Neapolitan named Rafaele Esposito prepared pizza for King Umberto I and Queen Margherita, who apparently loved it.
- An Italian immigrant named Gennaro Lombardi opened the first U.S. pizzeria in 1895 in New York City.
- Pizza is now consumed all over the world, though travelers are often amazed by how different cultures have adapted pizza to their own preferences.
