The real deal: Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana
We are so excited that Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana has opened the doors to its very first Orange County location at Crystal Cove Shopping Center because there’s pizza and then there’s pizza. We’re talking authentic, Napoli-style pizza using time-honored ingredients and a handcrafted, thin crust that’s expertly baked in a 1,000-degree oven. The results? A perfectly blistered pie that’s “wet” in the middle to make it a knife & fork affair – just the way true Italians eat it.
Pizza purists will love the classic Margherita topped with crushed tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, parmigiano reggiano, and extra virgin olive oil. The Carbonara is not-to-be-missed, though, as it’s topped with crushed tomatoes, pancetta, egg, mozzarella and cracked pepper.
Not a fan of tomatoes? Settebello also offers four pizzas sans-crushed tomatoes. The restaurant also serves various antipasti including panzanella, focaccia bread, and salads. + View Menu
While the restaurant’s live olive trees and custom ceilings that open up to the sky make for a gorgeous restaurant, the focal point is the oven, where all the pizza magic happens. And that’s no regular oven: Settebello’s oven was handmade by artisan oven makers in Naples, Italy.
Settebello is open Sunday – Thursday from noon to 10:00pm and Friday – Saturday from noon to 11:30pm. For more information, visit www.settebello.net or call (949) 715-2072.
