When Frasca Food & Wine owners Lachlan MacKinnon-Patterson and Bobby Stuckey drew up plans for a new pizzeria, they were adamant that it be a true Napolitano pizzeria, not just a Napolitano-inspired pizzeria. And so they scrutinized each detail, everything from the decor to the dough, to make sure their new place would be as close as they could come to a joint in that city in Campagna. The result is a sleek, beautiful dining room, full of dark woods, marble and clean lines, but with fluorescent lights, artwork and a noise level that give it the air of a pizzeria, too. The focal point of the room is the custom-made, wood-burning Ferrara oven, an essential element in achieving authenticity. Pizzaiolos use it to create an assortment of pies -- about fifteen are listed, all with top-quality ingredients -- whose chewy crusts come out thin and soft in the center and fluffier around the edges. You can choose a pairing for your pizza from a broad wine list that features a couple of varieties on tap.
Simple and tasty Italian food inspired by Napoli Italy. With a focus on Pizza but also offering salads, sides and dessert. Amazing coffee and amaro program and access to the award winning Frasca wine list.
Tips from foursquare
Head to this Napoletana style pie shop for beer and pizza in style: mozzarella di bufala pie and a pint of Kolsch (specifically made by the Boulder's Crystal Springs Brewing Company)
You can't leave without a taste of one of the prosciutto pizzas. Top on our list: the Maiale. Buon Appetito!
Eat here. Now. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made.
Exemplary pizza, not New York, not Chicago, but the style you find in Italy. Try the Diavola pizza topped with bufala provolone, San Marzano tomato sauce, basil and spicy salami, $15. "More Info":
Do not miss the butterscotch pudding. It's worth every penny.
