La Pizza Fresca Restaurant Review

: The pizza here has been certified by the Italian government as “vera pizza Napoletana” (true Neapolitan pizza), and each pie is prepared with tomatoes and mozzarella flown in twice a week from Italy. It is then baked in a brick oven to tasty effect. Salads, soups, pastas and main courses are available, but almost impossible to choose over one of the too-tempting pies. We like the Emilia, with San Marzano tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and Parmigiano-Reggiano. The Rustica, with pancetta, onions and bufala mozzarella, is also a good choice.
