Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana
Boasting 5 locations across California, Nevada, & Utah, Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana is a hit for Salt Lake City pizza and gelato lovers. It was one of the first pizzerias in the US to recreate "Pizza Napoletana" just like the pizza in Napoli, Italy where pizza was first created (here is an article about it if you are interested). The two owners lived in Italy before moving to Utah to open Settebello and it is clear that they know the art of authentic, Italian pizza, and gelato. Their most popular pizzas are the Margherita, Diavola, and Settebello with standard sizes of 12" pizzas ranging from $11-$17. If you're wanting a little taste of Italy right here in downtown Salt Lake City then this is the place!
