Starita Firenze

Starita a Materdei

  • via San Gallo

Antonio Starita's pizzas, arancini, fried dough frittatas and flowers, and Maradona's famous horns. In Florence, in Via San Gallo, comes Starita a Materdei, one of the oldest Neapolitan pizzerias that this year celebrates 120 years. The history of Starita began in 1901, in the Materdei district of Naples, as a cellar, opened by Alfonso Starita. Soon it was transformed into a place open to the tasting of wines and traditional foods thanks to the idea of his son Giuseppe. Today, Don Antonio and his sons, Peppe and Mena, carry on the business. Here tradition and conviviality are the main features, and they proudly aim at respecting the use of raw materials and a centuries-old technique.
