“A patch of Naples on Maltese soil”, this is how many of the Italians who patronise this restaurant have described Vecchia Napoli. The food is authentic because the ingredients and cooking methods are authentic too. A trattoria and pizzeria, Vecchia Napoli boasts what is probably Malta’s favourite pizza, the Calzone Capo di Monte which combines the seductive flavours of truffle and four different Italian cheeses. It is baked in the wood burning oven and then topped with succulent slices prosciutto di Parma, crisp rucola leaves and freshly grated slivers of Parmiggiano Reggiano. This is just one pizza from a wide selection. The flour for the pizza dough comes from Naples’ most respected mill and the mozzarella fior di latte is shipped from Italy each week.
Fresh fish is served daily, and customers can choose from an extensive menu which includes antipasti, salads and pasta, and several meat dishes too.
A new dining room with sea views has recently been opened. This is ideal for private parties.
Pizza – always with a capital P – and Passione are intrinsically interwoven into the fabric that makes the great seaport city of Naples! La vivanda scugnizza, the street urchin’s meal, has conquered the tables of the world. Here at Vecchia Napoli we have left no stone unturned to bring the very best of Neapolitan and indeed Italian Pizza to Malta. Our Pizzaioli have spent several weeks in Milan, with Massimo Francavilla, Pizza champion of Europe, and also time in Naples with Ernesto Cacialli, chosen to prepare the Pizza for President Clinton during his visit to Naples.Not only have we done our best to bake an excellent Pizza, procuring the highest quality ingredients, but we are also able to offer you a true taste of the Campania region with our exclusive pasta, sweets coffee and wines.
As Gennaro would say: “Bon Apptit!”
