When Frasca Food & Wine owners Lachlan MacKinnon-Patterson and Bobby Stuckey drew up plans for a new pizzeria, they were adamant that it be a true Napolitano pizzeria, not just a Napolitano-inspired pizzeria. And so they scrutinized each detail, everything from the decor to the dough, to make sure their new place would be as close as they could come to a joint in that city in Campagna. The result is a sleek, beautiful dining room, full of dark woods, marble and clean lines, but with fluorescent lights, artwork and a noise level that give it the air of a pizzeria, too. The focal point of the room is the custom-made, wood-burning Ferrara oven, an essential element in achieving authenticity. Pizzaiolos use it to create an assortment of pies -- about fifteen are listed, all with top-quality ingredients -- whose chewy crusts come out thin and soft in the center and fluffier around the edges. You can choose a pairing for your pizza from a broad wine list that features a couple of varieties on tap.
