Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana will be opening in Farmington at Station Park today ( May 23). It serves authentic Neapolitan thin crust, hand-made pizza cooked in a wood burning oven from Salerno, Italy.
Station Park’s newest restaurant is situated near the Cinemark Theater and the soon-to-open fountain and garden. It's one of a handful of Italian restaurants in the nation certified by the Vera Pizza Napoletana. The VPN’s goal is to protect the integrity of the pizza-making tradition as it began in Napoli more than 200 years ago.
Settebello follows VPN protocols which require using only Italian flours to create the pizza dough, working the dough by hand, never using a rolling pin, and baking the pizza directly on the surface of a bell shaped wood-burning oven. The charter also requires the use of specific Italian tomatoes and fresh milk or buffalo milk mozzarella.
“Our pizza is made with soft dough and cooks in about a minute in our 900 degree oven,” said owner, Michael Brooks. “It’s meant to be eaten immediately on site for maximum effect with a fork or folded over. We’re very excited to introduce it to Northern Utah.”
Settebello also offers a variety of red and white Italian wines, salads, antipasti and desserts from its sister company, Capo Gelateria Italina. Brooks also owns another Settebello location at 260 South 200 West in Salt Lake City.
The restaurant has retractable glass walls that will allow customers to dine al fresco and view the dancing show fountain that will be unveiled in June.
Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday noon to 9 p.m. For more information visitwww.settebello.net and Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana on Facebook.
