Pizza lovers should head to Red Lion Street in Richmond as it now has another pizza restaurant: Neapolitan
pizzeria, Napoli on the Road.
It’s the restaurant’s second branch – the original site is in Devonshire Road in Chiswick – specialising in seasonal spins on the classic dish.
Head chef and founder Michele Pascarella hasr ecently been awarded Pizza Maker of the Year 2023 and started his business by wandering around with his three-wheeler Ape Piaggio making wood fire pizzas all over London.
The seasonal approach is what this pizzeria’s all about, and there is an ever changing menu to reflect the
bounty of each season. An open kitchen concept allows guests to witness the pizzaiolos as they hand-
stretch the dough and assemble each pizza.
Highlights of Napoli on the Road’s new menu include pizzas such as: the Cheesewick – topped with buffalo
mozzarella DOP, ricotta cheese, stracciatella di bufala, blue stilton, parmesan chip and piennolo cherry
tomato jam; Ricordi D’infanzia (which translates as childhood memories) – made with 12 hours slow-cooked
ragu napoletano and 24 months parmigiano reggiano cream; and the new Tonno & Scarola.
This features fresh fior di latte from Caserta, crunchy escarole, semi-dry cherry tomato, tuna fillets from Cetara, black olive powder and sweet reduction of red onion. Although pizza takes centre stage at Napoli on the Road, there are a number of other dishes on the menu for guests to enjoy.
Pizzas range from £10.95 to £18.95, with vegan options as well. Wine is from £24.50 a bottle and £5 for
