Pizzeria Oliva da Carla e Salvatore


"Salvatore and Carla are La Sanità’s golden couple. He was the son of the prized pizza chef Ciro Oliva and she was the pretty, well to-do daughter of the famous neighbourhood tailor Angelo O’ Sarto. They met between shifts learning the ropes of their family businesses that were on opposite sides of the road to each other, soon married and opened Pizzera Oliva … in 2014. Their warm welcome, imaginative pizzas and ideal location in front of the baroque Santa Maria della Sanita church make this a perfect lunch stop after wandering the back streets of this chaotic but characterful neighbourhood."
