Back in the day, Via Toldeo was the main strip in the buzzing city of Naples. It was the place where people would meet, gossip, where grocers would sell their goods and you would always hear a bunch of men shouting, “Allucand, allucand! (translation: ‘A pizza, a pizza!’)
We must admit, no one is shouting when the pizza is ready at the beloved pizzeria bordering Vienna’s 8th and 9th districts, Via Toledo. They simply ring a bell.
Now we’re not sure what the people of the old day Via Toledo in Naples would think of the dessert pizza served up here, but all we can simply say is – (imagine us in a blissful silence kissing our fingers and muttering ‘Bellisimo’).
Via Toledo’s dessert pizza is an original and truly stands out – both in flavour and as something to look at. Plus, it’s the only pizza we tried on this list that only uses Italian ingredients – from the Crema di Nocciola, the chopped pistachios and almond brittle to the gold flakes on top. Yes, you read that right. There’s gold flakes on top. Fancy, right? Well, it’s so fancy it’s not even in the menu yet. But it will be in the coming months. Until then, just ask for it and tell them we sent you.
We recommend…trying the Bruschetta Piazza Plebiscito as a starter. It’s made with a Fiarelli creme and topping. For a main, ask the friendly staff for a recommendation. We went for a pizza with pistachio creme and mortadella, called Mortazza.
Good to know…the menu includes suggested wine pairings with every respective pizza.
Also good to know…there’s also spelt and whole grain dough available.
