Pizzeria Dal Presidente
The name of the Pizzeria Dal Presidente is given by the famous visit of President Clinton, who went to the Pizzeria di Matteo to taste the excellent Neapolitan pizza. A few years later the same Pizzaiuolo (pizza maker) opened a pizzeria of his own called The President. The specialties are varied and all very tasty: from the simple Marinara to the “Lasagna” (mozzarella, tomato, ham, ricotta, cheese, basil), from the Carrettiere (mozzarella, friarielli, sausages, cheese) to the “Tarantina” (tomato, olives, anchovies, capers, garlic, oregano, basil). All pizzas prepared with traditional ingredients and wisely joined together. In 2018 the Pizzeria dal Presidente has been awarded as Excellence of Campania.
