UPDATE: Varuni Napoli’s much-anticipated second location has now opened at Krog Street Market!

“To make the margherita you need the finest ingredients including the best buffalo mozzarella available, San Marzano tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil – and Naples is famous for producing the best of all three ingredients in the dish.” ~ Luca Varuni
