This Italian restaurant is the collaboration of a franchise that made it big in Japan and Naples native star chef Salvatore Cuomo. The collaboration was a huge success, spreading internationally, with the Seoul branch opening in 2009. Since then, they’ve become known for one of the best wood-fired pizzas in Seoul. The wood-fired oven, which literally weighs a ton, was made by Italian artisans from Italian volcanic rock, and it alone is worth the trip. But we’re happy to report that their food is delicious and well worth your money. We recommend trying the D.O.C. pizza, the very pizza recipe that helped Salvatore Cuomo win the 2006 World Pizza Contest. Its simple components (mozzarella cheese, basil, crust) are layered in perfect proportions to mouth-watering effect. If you’re looking for more variety, the lunch buffet comes at a very reasonable price.
