nNea is the New Neapolis,
the metropolis of a new pizza era.
Centuries-old nNeapolitan cuisine is brought back to modern times by reinventing the authentic recipes with new techniques and top-notch ingredients.
è ‘chiú bella
"Partenope is more beautiful than Venus"
from "Odissea" by La Famiglia
nNea was founded in 2019 by chef Vincenzo Onnembo and entrepreneur Limau Chen in Bilderdijkstraat 92h, Amsterdam.
Research, curiosity for contamination and a visceral love for the transformation of flour into a living form that becomes pizza, these are among the reasons of the existence of nNea. Since day zero the goal has been to embrace the renaissance of pizza and to create new paths, new stories to tell and new traditions to pursue.
In 2019 nNea was ranked n.13, in 2020 n.8 with a special award (Model of Inspiration) and in 2021 n.6 for 50 top Pizza Europe.
For 2 consecutive years nNea was nominated Top Pizzeria in the Netherlands.
nNea is awarded with 3 spicchi Gambero Rosso and voted as one of the best Italian Restaurant outside of Italy.
PIZZA IS NOT FAST FOOD
We believe in a light and fluffy cloud of dough to host our ingredients; to achieve this result we use quality flours without additives, purified water and the most important piece of the fermentation process: time.
Our dough is the result of an ongoing research, a never-ending journey that begins with grains. nNea blend is obtained by mixing flours by Molino Denti (Italy) together with local dutch Emmer (Triticum dicoccum) and Einkorn (Triticum monococcum).
Our ingredients are mostly seasonal and we try to embrace a bridge between southern Italy and our home here, the Netherlands. We believe in local producers as well as we love the rarity of certain products you can only find on volcanic soil, like our tomatoes.
Campania is one of Italy’s oldest wine regions and has many indigenous grapes growing on an incredibly fertile soil, mostly volcanic and rich of minerals; for this reason, Romans called the region “Campania Felix” (fertile countryside).
At nNea we're all about honouring traditions and embracing a modern wave of cuisine and our pizzas complement perfectly with the ancient aromas of the regional wines. From sandy soil to dark volcanic stones, the umbrella of possibilities is a true discovery for those who haven’t experience them yet.
Recently we expanded our cellar to more pairing possibilities by introducing great wines from other Italian regions.
