STRAP IN AND BUCKLE UP – IT’S TIME FOR A NEW PIZZA EXPERIENCE
Alan Kelly – Sunday World
Wood-fire pizza is Naples unrivaled culinary masterpiece – The team at Forno 500° take our wood-fire pizza very seriously. Our oven (Forno) has been specifically built by respected Artisans from Naples. These Artisans were flown into Ireland and accommodated here in Dublin. An ancient style wood burning oven using old world Neapolitan techniques took two weeks to build. The team locked all workers out during the oven building process so that they could protect their local secrets.
Since then we were so honoured to be awarded the first accreditation in Ireland following a surprise inspection from Naples. We have made the Verace Pizza Napolitana (AVPN) list and became 707th restaurant to join this prestigious list of top pizzerias world wide. Our award stands proud in our window today.
We are dedicated to spreading the culture and traditions of the real wood-fired pizza di Napoli and can create that soft, light and airy dough with true smoky oak flavour from our wood burning oven. Only fresh, all natural, non processed ingredients of top DOP certification are permitted. We only bake with hardwoods of oak or beech. We hope you enjoy the “Vera” “True” Verace Pizza Napolitana premium taste here in Dublin. Just leave your passport at home and enjoy your Forno 500° experience.
Forno 500°’s Restaurant, Bar and Pizzeria specialises in Pizza and fresh pasta. It is situated on Dame Street, next door to the Olympia theatre box office and facing the pedestrian gates of Dublin Castle. It is in a beautiful plush space formerly known as Les Feres Jacques.
Now completely transformed to a two story eatery, it seats 90 guests. Now serving the classic Italian cocktails, premium draft beer and a classic selection of Italian wines. Open for lunch & dinner 7 days a week.
