Farina Pizza Gets a Name, and a Nameless Pizzaiolo

Farina’s upcoming pizzeria off-shoot, which will be opening in June in the ground floor of a new condo building just down the street at 18th and Valencia, now has a web page, as well as a name: Antica Pizzeria Napoletana. Owners Luca Minna and Laura Garrone aren’t releasing a name for the new straight-from-Naples pizzaiolo they’ve hired (who is not, as we previously guessed, Jon Darsky). Farina chef Paolo Laboa will oversee all the non-pizza menu items, and they promise a wood-fired pizza that is “fragrant, light and delicate, and practically melts in your mouth.” Brace yourselves, Delfina.
