This NYC restaurant has officially been named best pizzeria in the world

Back in June, 50 Top Pizza, an online guide focusing on the best Italian pizzerie across the world, crowned New York's own Una Pizza Napoletana the very best such parlor in the United States. This past week, the outlet doubled down on its selection and then some: the Orchard Street destination topped the list of best pizzerias in the world, in a tie with I Masanielli di Francesco Martucci, a pizza shop in Caserta, a region in Southern Italy.

This is clearly a big deal: how often can a pizza produced and served in New York be considered just as delicious as one from Italy, the dish's motherland?

Overall, the U.S. seems to be considered a pretty solid beacon of Italian food excellency. In fact, a total of 15 American restaurants made it to the list of 100 best pizzerias in the world. Three of them landed in the top 15, including one in San Francisco and two in New York (Una Pizza Napoletana and Ribalta, an excellent spot by Union Square).

Song' E Napule on West Houston and Kesté Fulton also made it to the top 50 list. 

"The annual work of our inspectors who collaborate with this project made this ranking possible. They have examined and assessed many pizzerias worldwide under absolute anonymity, per our guide's policy. It was a significant challenge," said the curators of the event, which took place at the beautiful Palazzo Reale in Naples a few days ago.

“After presenting the guides for Europe, the USA, Italy, Asia-Pacific and the selection from South America and Africa, we invited the top establishments from each ranking to Naples for the final worldwide classification for 2022. This guide encompasses many different pizza styles, even if the Neapolitan style, both classic and contemporary, is the most popular. The most important cities for pizzas in terms of quality are Naples above all, then New York, Tokyo, and São Paulo. We are delighted because this journey around the world to capture the current pizza panorama was particularly rewarding.” 

Clearly one of (if not the) best pizza places in NYC, we expect Una Pizza Napoletana to be pretty busy in the upcoming months—so make sure to get a reservation ASAP.
