Salvatore Olivella Brings His Nutella Pie to Midtown ‘Pizza Speakeasy’

Salvatore Olivella Brings His Nutella Pie to Midtown ‘Pizza Speakeasy’

Last time we checked in with Salvatore Olivella, he was planning to launch a fleet of pizza trucks. His brush with the local news (remember those pizza-happy rats?) may have put a damper on that, because as of this morning, the former L’asso and No. 28 pizzaiolo is, thankfully, back in front of a wood-burning brick oven and hand-pulling homemade mozzarella at 57 Napoli Pizza e Vino, a new (need we say it?) Neapolitan pizza spot above C’est Bon Café in midtown. C’est Bon has converted a former upstairs seating area into what’s being called a “pizza speakeasy” of less than 50 seats. Wine and beer by the glass will be served there from 11 a.m. till 11 p.m. The space isn’t anything fancy (think brick walls, two tops, and a floor-to-ceiling glass window overlooking 57th Street), but as far as lunch options go, it beats the buffets. Here’s a look at the twelve-inch round pie and the eighteen-inch “metro” pie, plus the menu. Of special note: the Nutella pizza you know and love from L'asso.
