A vibrant breath of Neapolitan air in a shopping centre in the northern district of Moscow. Within a short time Vesuvio has become a solid point of reference for Neapolitan pizza in the city thanks to the work of pizzaiuolo and owner Giuseppe Peluso. The crust is thick and well-defined, dough has high hydration, pies are soft and chewy, baked in an electric oven. Mozzarella and tomato are directly imported from Italy. We went for the classic margherita, while among the special pizzas you’ll find the Vesuvio with spicy salami or the parmigiana with eggplants. Order the pizza at the counter and eat it directly at the few wooden tables. A proper coffee completes the experience.
