Napoli del Cuore – Naples in the heart – is as good a mantra as any to have in the world of pizza, with the city being the progenitor of the flatbread favourite, but it is also difficult to live up to. No worries, however, at Napoli del Cuore on Oxford Street in Darlinghurst, where they provide authentic Neapolitan pies produced by fourth generation pizza bakers, made using a self-devised dough recipe and cooked in a traditional wood-fired oven. Join Fabio, his wife Laura and their team at Napoli del Cuore for a pizza in Sydney that is more than memorable. Book a table in before you arrive, however, as they will get busy on occasion and advance reservation is always a good idea. Once you’ve done that, all you need to do is turn up and let the Campisi family do what they do to ensure that you have a great time and a great meal.
The food was fantastic and the restaurant had an authentic Italian feel. Only negative was that we were sat near the bathroom which smelt terrible.
Really bad service and the pizza was really soft And not cooked properly, it stuck in my Stomach and I felt sick the next day
Been eating pizza here for the last three years and absolutely love it! The atmosphere is awesome, service is great and the food is so authentic.
The secret to good pizza? Well, it’s not really that much of a secret, if you’ve been to Naples. And if you haven’t been to Naples, maybe you’ve been to Napoli del Cuore in Darlinghurst, where they present the best of the ancient Italian city to the public of Sydney, using the traditional methods of the old country. Let us talk you through how they go about making some of the best pizza in Sydney. Behind the scenes, you need a great dough, and they have a house special, homemade, self-devised recipe that they make fresh every day. In the middle, you need great ingredients for the sauces and the toppings, and at the final cooking stage, you need an oven that adds the char, and nothing does that better than a wood-fired oven: they’ve got one on Oxford Street, and they put it to good use.
The pizzas themselves are superb at Napoli del Cuore, but Fabio Savarese and Laura Campini, the husband and wife team behind their Sydney pizza restaurant on Oxford Street in Darlinghurst, know that the food is only half the fun. While Fabio slaves in the kitchen, Laura takes care of everything in the front of house, from the bespoke pizza garden with outdoor seating arrangement that can take you right back to the Amalfi Coast to the classic Italian restaurant decor and the authentic wine list packed with favourites from the bel paese and Australia alike. Gather your friends and family, set a course for Napoli del Cuore and make a move to Darlinghurst – not far from Kings Cross – for one of the top pizzas in Sydney.
