Tufino Pizzeria Napoletana, named after the town Tufino in Italy where owner, Stephen Mennaís grandfather lived before coming to America, opened in 2012 and has been serving delicious food ever since. Tufino Pizzeria is Stephenís first restaurant and venture in the industry, so before opening he did tons of research to ensure his customers the best recipes, service, and experience possible. Of course, the restaurant is best known for their authentic and delicious pizzas. They use a wood-burning pizza oven that was hand-built in Naples, Italy that they heat to 900 degrees and cooks each pizza in just ninety seconds. They even import all their ingredients directly from Naples as well to ensure authenticity and taste. Thereís a long list of different pizzas to choose from, but the traditional Margherita made with organic Italian tomato sauce, fior di latte, grana padano, and basil always proves to be a fan favorite. In addition to pizza, Tufino Pizzeria Napoletana also offers handmade pastas, salads, appetizers, and sandwiches. The restaurant also offers beer and wine that come mainly from regions of Italy. In the end, itís the high quality ingredients and authenticity of the pizza making that sets Tufino Pizzeria a part from their competitors. The restaurant is very family oriented and makes for a great place to just sit back and relax. The next time youíre in town be sure to stop by for a meal and experience you wonít forget!
