Pizzeria
Our story begins off the coast of Napoli…

Passion for good food and wine runs deep in the family of Simona Sarpa. Two years ago, she moved from Napoli, Italy to let Tampa Bay taste a little piece of Neapolitan tradition. In a kitchen inspired by her Grandparents’ restaurant/pizzeria Pizzicato at Piazza Municipio, she follows the tradition of the Neapolitan cuisine passed down through the generations.

The Viva Napoli kitchen relies mostly on imported products from Italy to meet the authenticity of the Neapolitan cuisine. The centerpiece of the kitchen, a large wood fired oven, was built in Napoli from the famous “biscotto di Sorrento” stone to perfectly cook the Neapolitan style pizza. Italian flour results in pizzas with soft crust and beautiful airy pockets that add a delightful crunch.
True Italian ingredients add their uncompromising flavors to each dish, from Italian cheeses and herbs to sausages imported from Napoli. Savor the hearty flavors that invoke the passion of Italy.

    The Napolitan pizza is exquisite. It's not often that we find a good pizza place and this is it! Thin crust but chewy, homemade fresh toppings. Just a dream!

    Most items are very good. The eggplant parm was not cooked correctly so don’t order that. Other items are great.

    We have eaten at Viva Napoli on numerous occasions with our family (6 adults and three kids) but this dinner was with some old friends. We wanted them to experience the restaurant and they were very complimentary on every aspect of the meal - from wine to main courses to the tiramisu for dessert. A bonus was that we could converse without having to shout. Our friends definitely plan to return and bring their family too. It is truly a neighborhood restaurant to enjoy!

    We were really excited to try this place based on reviews. We were surprised to find plastic single use serve ware in place. The vibe in the restaurant was definitely not warm. The cook kept coming to the front to shout at one of the servers. To her credit she didn’t react at all, but it was a very tense exchange. For food quality and price you’d be better off visiting a chain like Carrabbas even.

    This is a locally owned little gem hidden away on El Prado. They have really good pizzas but I always gravitate toward the pasta. The Gnocchi pistachio is delicious. I recommend you try this place out.

    This is our “family” restaurant for dinner with our sons, daughters in law and three grandkids. Food for the kiddos comes out quickly and the food we order is always delicious! Pastas In particular are so authentic and tasty. We go as a group a couple of times a month; it’s becoming a tradition!

    It’s definitely an overlooked locally owned neighborhood restaurant. We ordered the lasagna and a couple of pizzas. It was all delicious. We went on a Saturday evening, not many diners but there was a steady take out. Would recommend especially to the locals. We will definitely be back.

    Love the pizza. It is absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. My husband enjoyed his pasta with Italian sausage. The only drawback is that the service is very slow. There is only one waitress plus the owner who service the tables. This is a great neighborhood restaurant.

    I love this local hotspot and the lasagna is amazing we also enjoyed the deserts and pizzas. It was super loud and hard to talk though so I’d add some rugs or ceiling noise canceling items. Over its cozy and great.

    My husband’s calzone came out cold, cheese wasn’t even melted. Everyone else was finished eating before they brought him another one. Ravioli was not great. Meals are pricey. This is our third visit. We keep giving them another try. We will not return.

    Great wine selection and the house wine is respectable The pistachio and Mortadella pizza was great but the margherita was full of Oregano and was not good, my Bucatini alla carbonara was OK no a lot of flavor and somewhat acidic. would like to try the appetizes next time they looked good
