• Welcome to Varuni Napoli

    “For each bite of pizza there is a chapter of history. Born in Naples for the poor, it became food for the rich; took the colors of Italy and went around the world. At Varuni-Napoli we want to share a new chapter of this colorful food with you" ~Luca Varuni

The open design of Varuni Napoli allows guests to see first-hand the artisanship behind their food before it hits the plate. The central space encourages social interaction, while the lounges and deck offer a more intimate atmosphere.

The former manufacturing warehouse has all the style and charm of a traditional Italian eatery. Surrounded by exposed brick and adorned with both modern and rustic fixtures, featured elements include a glass-encased dough preparation room, a one-of-a-kind transparent walk-in cooler and a chef’s table overlooking the bustling open kitchen. The open kitchen serves as a stage where Varuni’s pizza artisans create masterpieces right in front of you, even offering diners bites of their creations throughout the evening. The pizza bar offers a front-row seat to watch the action in the kitchen and occasionally hear Varuni singing along to his favorite Italian songs.

Wall décor reflects the vibrant Italian culture at Varuni Napoli, with black and white photographs of iconic Italian artists, actors and musicians and a projector that shows classic Italian films.

Drawing on the culture and artisanship of Napoli, high-quality ingredients are used in each dish. To maintain authenticity, the main ingredients are all imported, including Doppio Zero flour, cold-press olive oil, Italian olives, cured meats, San Marzano tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella.

To ensure that dishes are made with the freshest produce, seasonal vegetables and herbs are locally sourced. Triple-filtered water is used for the dough, which is made with careful calculation and the traditional “mother” process.

Varuni Napoli makes every effort to avoid products and ingredients that contain preservatives, growth hormones and chemical boosters.

Napoli is a city of intense vivaciousness and creativity. The cuisine, particularly the pizza and street food, is world-famous. Renowned artists have contributed to its richly textured culture over the centuries, which extend to literature and cinematography. Varuni-Napoli pays tribute to the city and its artists by showing historic images in its gallery.

Classic Italian black and white movies from the golden era of Italian cinematography will play around-the-clock. Expect appearances by Marcello Mastroianni, Sofia Loren, Toto’ and many more.
