Olio Pizza e Più is an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and restaurant located in the heart of the West Village, by award winning Pizza Master, Giulio Adriani.
Giulio Adriani arrived in New York from Italy, eager to present his own style of Neapolitan pizza to New Yorkers who are mad for the stuff. Adriani learned the art of making traditional Neapolitan pizza from two of the greatest pizza masters in Italy, Gaetano Fazio and Antonio Starita. He is double certified as an authentic Neapolitan Pizza Maker by the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana and the Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani, organizations for certification of authentic Neapolitan pizza.
Adriani states that each pizzaiolo has their own signature, partly found in their own interpretation of the "dough point", the point at which kneading the dough ceases. Giulio finds his dough point sooner than most, kneading his dough less-- which results in a lighter, fluffier, more digestible crust.
