Master Neapolitan creche artists created the traditional animated nativity scene exhibited in this authentic pizzeria – the nativity itself set in a miniature ancient Neapolitan pizzeria. Ettore Rusciano’s pizzeria, near the Catholic University and the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, is also dependably authentic in its use of ingredients that come directly from Naples and Italy. These products are sold in his adjacent grocery store as well. The pizza is properly leavened, with the perfect texture that comes from expert kneading. Easily digested and flavorful, it is baked in the artisanal oven built to order on site. The only shortcoming here is a wine list that measure up to the pizza, although a fine selection of craft beers makes up for it.
