In the heart of Lavapiés, a neighborhood renowned for its vibrant street art in Madrid, NAP (Neapolitan Authentic Pizza) beckons pizza aficionados with its promise of “la vera pizza Napoletana” – the quintessential Neapolitan pizza.
As you approach NAP, the first thing that captures your attention isn’t just the inviting aroma of pizzas baking but the striking artwork gracing its entrance. Painted by Okuda, one of Spain’s most illustrious graffiti artists, the vivid mural provides a fitting backdrop to the restaurant’s wood-fired oven, blending the urban essence of Lavapiés with the rustic warmth of Neapolitan tradition.
At NAP, the focus is singular – crafting the perfect pizza. Their menu, though concise, reflects a dedication to authenticity. While it lists a handful of appetizers, salads, and desserts, the spotlight remains firmly on their ten distinct pizzas with an added daily special to keep things interesting.
True to Neapolitan style, NAP’s pizzas boast a soft, thin crust that’s delightfully fluffy. Using fresh, uncomplicated ingredients, their pies are characterized by a generous layer of sauce juxtaposed against modest cheese, challenging the notion of overloaded toppings. This isn’t a place for crispy crust enthusiasts but for those seeking a genuine bite of Naples amidst the urban allure of Madrid.
At NAP Lavapiés, every slice tells a story – of art, tradition, and unparalleled flavor.
