The flavours of the Amalfi coast are coming to Woolloomooloo Wharf, thanks to the team from Via Napoli.
Despite the challenges 2020 has brought, we’ve seen an array of exciting new venue openings lands in Sydney. There was the launch of the all-vegetarian cafe Pilgrims Bronte as well as the luxe new Darlinghurst cafe The Mayflower, along with a bunch of new eateries such as Henrietta’s Surry Hills, Mary’s On Top and the CBD’s new Middle Eastern joint, Above Par. And now, we’re here to share news of another exciting new opening coming soon to the shores of Sydney.
For lovers of Neapolitan-style pizza, you’ll be well acquainted with the iconic pizzeria, Via Napoli. Renowned for some of Sydney’s best wood-fired pizzas, the team has grown from strength-to-strength, bringing an authentic slice of Neapolitan culture to Sydneysiders.
Born and raised in the heart of Naples, Via Napoli’s owner and head chef Luigi Esposito has been busy over the past few years. With three thriving Via Napoli locations across Sydney (located in Lane Cove, Surry Hills and Hunters Hill), Luigi launched his latest venue, Pizza Fritta 180 on Crown Street in early 2020 – bringing a lively bar and eatery serving up fried pizza fritta dishes. And now? Luigi has his sights set on his next venue.
Set to swing open its doors in the coming months, Luigi has confirmed he will be opening his most ambitious restaurant to date. Taking over the site of Criniti’s restaurant (which closed earlier this year), the new project finds its home in a prize spot on Woolloomooloo Wharf.
At this stage, details are scarce about what the restaurant will be serving. But we do know it will be named ‘The Amalfi Way’ and will be a restaurant that celebrates the flavours of the Amalfi coast. Expect plenty of pizza, pasta and seafood on this menu, the perfect way to take a European holiday without leaving Sydney.
The Amalfi Way will find its home on the waterside strip of Woolloomooloo Wharf, slated to open in late 2020.
