Pizza Nea

306 E. Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55414 | University | 612-331-9298

Location Description:

How does Pizza Nea distinguish itself from the other woodfire pizza places in town? For salami, artichoke, and cheese lovers, the sparkling little shop stands apart because of the outstanding quality of its toppings: rich, rustic sausages, plush sweet fior di latte mozzarella, and deep green, roasted artichoke leaves, instead of mere pickled artichoke hearts. (If the mention of artichokes has perked your ears, please note they also offer a totally new, utterly foamy and light, and entirely intriguing new take on Minnesota's national dish, the artichoke ramekin. They call it carciofo, and it looks for all the world like a plate of hot whipped cream. Consider yourself forewarned.) For wine lovers, Pizza Nea is distinguished by its definitively pleasant pizza-shop wine list, full of country values. And for all those who love city life east of the Mississippi, Pizza Nea differentiates the neighborhood from all others--because it's the only place in town that offers this ultimate in sophisticated urban convenience: takeout wood-fired pizza across the street from Surdyk's, that big daddy of local liquor stores.
