The family patriarch Antonio Starita got his hands into the dough at just 12 years old. Now a third-generation pizza-maker and owner of one of Naples’ oldest and most revered pizzerias, Starita is carrying his family’s Neapolitan tradition into the next generation. Indeed, not only has 'Pizzeria Starita a Materdei' flourished under his ownership, it attracts crowds from well beyond the city limits.

With a successful business at home, Starita made his way to the United States opening Don Antonio in New York City. As authentic as stateside pizza gets, Starita’s Neapolitan pizzas quickly won local (and national) acclaim, voted “Best Pizza” by New York Magazine in its annual “Best of New York” issue, and featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Food & Wine.
