Pizza Special - Costanzo

During my first immersion tour of Naples many years ago, I soon got a bit overwhelmed as I had never been out of the US and was not expecting the city to bowl me over with its energy as it did. Luckily, Joe Fugere (the founder/owner of Tutta Bella) had planned a day off in Capri for us to relax and get away. We left the port of Naples on a 100 foot cigarette boat overloaded with passengers and after the boat bobbed, weaved and skipped its way through the rocky waters of the Bay of Naples, we landed at the docks of Capri. I didn’t know then that the boat ride wouldn’t be my only intense ride of the day. Once we arrived, we were picked up in a tiny, white VW convertible with a driver, Costanzo, who whipped around the curvy hills that make up the island’ s coastline. We quickly befriended him as he was turning our knuckles white with his driving. True to the Neapolitan manner, Costanzo talked loudly with his hands flailing, which can be a little nerve-racking while you are going up and down and all around.

Once Costanzo found out that we were there to study pizza, his eyes lit up and he became even more excited. He started yelling over and over in his thick accent louder than the ripping wind, “Brian, Brian!! You are a pizza man!! Mr. Pizza Man!!” We then asked him what his favorite pizza was and he didn’t even bat an eye as he looked back over his shoulder to me in the back seat, “Brian! Mr. Pizza Man!!! My favorite is a Margherita with hot sausage, ham and mushrooms!” The decision was made immediately to remember our new friend forever by naming his favorite pizza after him. So, upon our return to Tutta Bella, the Costanzo was born. I am just glad that I survived the ride so I could share this pizza, and his story, with all of you!

In honor of our friend Costanzo…

Authentic Italian Espresso

Attibassi Espresso

Neapolitans are as fiercely passionate about espresso as they are pizza. No meal ends without the digestivo that espresso provides. Espresso soothes the stomach and makes the heart contento. In true Italian tradition, we “pull” our espresso manually from a Victoria Arduino hand operated lever machine. Every cup will give you a complete espresso experience – a full-flavored, robust, yet not bitter, shot of espresso, topped by a thick layer of velvety reddish-brown crema which leaves a sweet lingering aftertaste.
