The first modern Italian immigrants came to Annapolis in the 1890s as Naval Academy bandsmen. A short time later, stonecutters from Italy arrived to help build the new United States Naval Academy. Since then Italians have played a significant part in the culinary arts of Maryland’s capital. According to TripAdvisor, below are Numbers 5 to 1 of the Top 10 Pizza Restaurants of Annapolis. All averaged 4 out of 5 stars from at least 20 reviews, and so dining at each will be a slice of heaven.
#5 Vin 909 Winecafé
Serving Eastport Style Pizza, VIN 909 describes themselves as being “built on family history and passion for food, wine, and beer”, and their “restaurant is approachable, local and reminds us of comfortable, inviting experiences and places that we have loved. Whether you are relaxing by the fire during winter with a glass of wine, enjoying one of our craft beers, or sharing a hand-formed brick oven fired pizza on the patio.”
#4 Carpaccio Tuscan Grille
“Executive Restaurateurs & Developers Gennaro DiMeo, Lino DiMeo, and Gennaro DiBenedetto, fuse their extended research and boyhood nostalgia to bring venerated recipes of old into captivating, all-embracing, accessible environments. Both owners Gennaro DiMeo and Lino DiMeo are “true Italians” coming directly to the restaurant industry from years of family owned Italian restaurants in Italy.”
#3 Fox’s Den Gastropub
According to the Baltimore Sun: “Annapolis chefs are the most creative they’ve ever been. The town has become a place where even the bar food is good, and a great meal can involve something edgier than crab cakes. Fox’s Den is part of that revolution. The restaurant and bar, which opened in on Main Street in June, bills itself as ‘the premier gastropub in Annapolis.’ With interesting, well-executed food, great drinks and smart, engaged service, that description fits.” Founded by two brothers and a nephew, The Fox’s Den says they “strive to offer a great selection of American Beer and Spirits along with incredible comfort food anchored by our wood fired brick oven pizza.”
#2 Neo Pizza
The owners say that “Neo offers an experience unlike anything you’ve seen before. Handcrafted, delicious food and a wide selection of craft beers and regional wine in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. Grab a bite to go or open a bottle of wine and stay a while.” They describe their menu: “From artisan pizza and gourmet paninis to fresh salads and small plates, all of our food is prepared with the finest and freshest ingredients to create incredible flavors you won’t soon forget.”
According to the owners, every Bertucci’s restaurant revolves around its brick oven, stating: “For over 30 years, since our first kitchen opened in the Davis Square neighborhood of Somerville, MA in 1981, we’ve been perfecting the art of brick oven cooking. From the beginning, we’ve built a tradition of creating unique pizzas and pasta combinations. These recipes all share some very important things in common. They use only the freshest ingredients, and we take the time to make each by hand.”
