The annual ranking of the country’s top 50 pizza places — 50 Top Pizza — has dropped and you better start making reservations because Miami made it big on the list! The city is officially home to three of the top 50 U.S. pizzerias, with ‘O Munaciello, a popular eatery in the MiMo District, checking in at the No. 7 spot.
As the first outpost of the beloved Florence, Italy restaurant, ‘O Munaciello serves up authentic pizzas in different styles, ranging from your traditional Margherita to a Capricciosa with ham, artichokes, olives and mushrooms. Their Neapolitan pies are also the real deal, baked in a wood-fired oven, thinly spread and topped with authentic Italian ingredients. The rest of the restaurant’s menu is complete with delicious homemade bread and typical Italian desserts accompanied by classical Italian wine labels.
As for its ambiance, the location stays true to its Italian counterpart, with plenty of color, nods to the Neapolitan football club and even an angel overlooking the restaurant.
50 Top Pizza’s list was topped by Portland’s Ken’s Artisan Pizza at No. 3 and Jersey City’s Razza Pizza Artigianale at No. 2. As for the very top spot, that honorable title goes to Una Pizza Napoletana in New York City. NYC is actually the most represented in this year’s guide, with ten pizzerias, followed by Miami, Portland and San Francisco equally, as each of the cities have a total of three locations.
The first 15 pizzerias on the list can enter the 100 Best Pizzerias in the World ranking, which will be held at the Palazzo Reale in Naples, Italy on September 13.
