Una Pizza Napoletano Marks the spot Ahead of Orchard Street Opening

Posted on: April 26th, 2018 at 5:01 am by

Pizza maestro Anthony Mangieri officially returns to the city next week with his trendy Una Pizza Napolitano. For this third go-round, the restaurant has chosen the Lower East Side.

Bright red neon lettering now illuminates the entrance of 175 Orchard Street ahead of the Monday opening (April 30).

Upon debut, the 72-seat Una Pizza Napoletana will include a menu familiar to fans, including Ilaria (smoked mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, arugula), Apollonia (eggs, salami, buffalo mozzarella), Filetti (garlic, cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella), plus margherita, bianca, and marinara pies.

As previously reported, Mangieri shuttered the San Francisco iteration back in December to begin building out 175 Orchard Street. However, he is not flying solo, unlike in the past. Instead, it’s an equal partnership with the Wildair/Contra crew, Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von Hauske Valtierra. He also intimated earlier this month that a West coast return is unlikely.
