‘O Munaciello, a typical Neapolitan pizza restaurant, is set in an ancient 17 century convent of Santo Spirito, a popular neighborhood of Florence and rich in history. Inside the restaurant, you will have a look at Naples, with its colors, its music and its ancient beliefs, half sacred and half profane. The kitchen and the wood fired oven are assigned to Andrea and Carmine Candito, respectively: two most Napolitnean brothers following in their father’s footsteps (he was a prominent restaurant owner with over four outlets operated in the capital of Campania).
Carmine, the elder, masters the oven with skill churning out pizzas using the noblest Neapolitan art. Andrea, a young but experienced chef, offers dishes from the most orthodox tradition with a menu that changes seasonally depending on the freshness of groceries and their specific origin: they are shipped directly from consortia and shops of the Amalfi Coast. Every Wednesday night at 21:00 there’s live music with the “Napolitaliani”, a band interpreting a medley of the biggest hits of the Neapolitan song, melodies arranged by just acoustic guitar and voice. Open daily, the restaurant boasts a private room with a characteristic decor, the Reginella (“little princess”), for special occasions.
