Napoli Vita Mia

Rated by Jonathan Gold one of the best pizzas outside of Italy, PIZZANA opened its first restaurant in Brentwood late spring. Continuing our decade-long collaboration with Sprinkles founders Charles and Candace Nelson, who partnered with native Neapolitan chef Daniele Uditi, we took inspiration from the rugged beauty of the Gulf of Naples and the energy of Italian Futurism. Transposed into the context of Los Angeles, our design concept transforms a mundane storefront into a multi-layered space activated by an interplay of compressed and soaring ceilings.
