Come spend the morning or afternoon with us and learn how to make the real Neapolitan Pizza from our very particular point of view, at Fiorenzano 1897 with our maestri Pizzaioli Ivan and Dilan Panico, two brothers that have started very young and through hard work and dedication to their passion have managed to become top ranking craftsmen of this incredible art recognised and certified as Unesco Heritage. During their career they have worked in different pizzerias in Naples and around Italy separately only to come together as a team once they were both back in their beloved home town. Fiorenzano 1897 is, as you may notice from the name, started back in the day as vendors of the most traditional Neapolitan street food. The famous "Cuoppo" a paper cone filled with deep fire happiness, such as potato crochets, rice balls, polenta triangles (known as scagliuozzi) and frittatine (pasta cakes made with besciamella sauce, peas, prosciutto and pepper). Today, Fiorenzano is not only a leader in the Neapolitan culinary world with its various locations around town, it is not only Pizzeria but also Neapolitan trattoria. You will see, learn about and taste the most amazing types of tomatoes and cheeses (mozzarella, fior di latte and provola) used in a pizzeria because every ingredient is important and must be discovered at its best.

Not only you will taste and learn about the best products possible but you will be able to see one of the best teams at work in a real pizzeria. Ivan and Dilan will share their grand experience in mastering the art of making a perfect Neapolitan pizza and not only.
