Food is innovative and tasty but the lack of service totally spoils the experience. Staff is very arrogant, lacks empathy and is unbelievable rude. Drinks are not proper served Orders are forgotten Diet wishes (not too much cheese) totally ignored Pushed to order more because...the desserts are small, as a client can I please decide for myself?? Bill served with desserts and the coffee Urged to leave because people are waiting: you have to manage that by giving a time slot in advance Communication very very disrespectfulMore

It's difficult to put to words just how good Pepe's pizza is. Not just his pizzamaking as a whole, but every single one of his creations is so far ahead of the best pizzas that I've tasted that it becomes an affair of trying to...call the finest cut of Wagyu "steak". From his tiny fried pizza cones to pizza-like desserts, no matter how strange or away from the mold, you always feel a certainty that it's pizza that has been lovingly and very precisely tuned by a master's skill and experience. But it isn't just the food that is praiseworthy- touches like having house beers that have been especially made for the restaurant to have the aroma and flavor of pizza dough, and other tweaks in the drink menu to pair perfectly with the food that really set the restaurant apart from anywhere else. Service may be an afterthought mention, but it was also fantastic, fast, attentive and very accommodating(even goong out of their way to combine our reservations with those of another couple we befriended on the way to the restaurant, so we could sit together), setting a standard you will be hard pressed to find in the rest of Italy. In summery: If you enjoy pizza in any capacity and ever plan to make a trip to Italy, you *must* make this restaurant a destination in your journey.More

Really nice restaurant with different spaces (panoramic terrace, garden and indoor spaces) we ate at the panoramic terrace and the ambience was very intimate and enjoyable. The restaurant has a very extensive pizza and fried pizza menu. They have the classic ones and the ones...created by them. We tried 3 of the latter and we really enjoyed the Melanzana brusciata one and the fiore di zuccha, really really good! The only thing I didn’t love was that the tasting menu just offered fried desserts which it was a bit too much after 3 pizzas in two.More

We spent a week in Naples on vacation- we have a business here at home catering true neopolitan wood fired pizzas. We planned 6 months in advance to take a break mid week and get up to Caiazzo to experience Pepe in Grani. We researched...everything about Pepe in Grani years in advance - watched Netflix show and The Pizza Show and other trip advisor reviews many times. We also spent the night there aot Pepe in Grani in one of the 2 rooms. Would do it all over again- the entire experience was well worth the train ride. We met some beautiful locals and staff was incredible to ensure everything stay and meal was superb. Highly recommend- Caiazzo. What a countrywide,small village. Not much else going on in town in January. It was like we owned the town. Thank you Pepe in Grani for the once in a lifetime experience. (We will be back😁)More

As a third-generation Baker and repeat recipient of “Best Pizza in the World” accolades the name Franco Pepe carries significant weight, and in the small town of Caiazzo, just one hour from Naples, he and his team showed precisely why gourmands travel globally to experience...his skill and ideas plus the sort of service many Michelin-starred Restaurants would be lucky to have. A destination in Compania since 2012, Chefs and critics singing the praises of a three-story space located down a narrow alley, it is strongly recommended that guests secure seats up to sixty days in advance, because although walk-ins are available they are almost universally subject to a substantial wait. Made more popular recently by Netflix “Ugly Delicious,” but largely unaffected according to regulars who suggest Franco Pepe has always chased faultlessness rather than fame, it was with reservations confirmed at 19h00 that two diners were led upstairs after a fifty-minute drive from Napoli, Pepe having taken a quick break to touch tables before returning to the kitchen made visible through closed-circuit television. A destination in the era of accessibility, names like Sorbillo and Da Michele expanding across oceans, Pepe’s approach embraces both terroir and season, a hyper-attentive focus on sourcing virtually guaranteeing no two Pies are identical even though the kitchen works with speed, skill and precision. Honoring his father and grandfather with classic offerings, all while pushing forward with ideas that challenge conventional thoughts regarding “Neapolitan” Pizza, it is from a surprisingly affordable Food & Beverage list that diners are invited to self-select, though the Degustazione typically reserved for parties of four can be made available for two if rrequested. Promoting Slow Food ideals, and highly efficient in terms of service, it was with a €32 bottle of Bubbly poured that course one arrived, Pepe’s now-iconic “Colpo Doppio” eating much like Montanara filled with a fragrant blend of Herbs and Cheese while a beautifully-leavened bits of Dough proved even better beneath a “rose” of Mortadella, Ricotta and Pistachio. An impassioned Chef, speaking fluently in both English and Italian when engaging with diners, it was as Franco stood tableside that his “Mystic” Margherita was delivered, the use of cooked Tomatoes and concentrated Basil better-focusing flavor while the Pie’s “Scarpetta” half used similar Ingredients to achieve an effect that permeates the sinuses while treating the palate to a diversity of textures. Using only products from nearby farms, Bacon and Eggs from “just down the road” featured on the Pizza Grana Pepe e Fantasia which riffs on Carbonara while adding grated-Pecorino Romano to the Cornicione, it was from the “seasonal” Pizzas that Sausage and Broccoli was served, seasoned Pork from Caserta playing well off the smoked Cheese and lightly charred Crucifer. Asked about capacity at this point, and happy to say that Pepe’s hand-blended Flour from Bari digests without making one feel overly full, a third Pizza focused on big flavors, “la Ritrovata” packing a ton of brine by way of Capers, Olives and Anchovies while an off-menu special described by Franco used the Sauce of Tomatoes stewed with Meatballs to impart an impressive degree of unctuousness to the half made texturally explosive with Pine Nuts and Bread Crumbs. Likely able to enjoy another Pie, but worried that Dessert might then be missed, it was much like the beginning that Pepe in Grani ended with a duo, Zeppole far lighter than any experienced prior and not overly-sweet while “La Crisommola Dal Vesuvio” replicated the Viandante’s base with toppings that touched every part of the palate with lingering tartness.More

Although we had reserved a table and they first tried to place us outside despite winter time, we had a fanstastic experience after waiting for an hour for another table. We chose the degustation menu which was a unique experience as every pizza was indescribsbly...tasty. Especially the pizza scarpetta blew our minds. Also the waiters tried to provide us with best service possible.More

Horrible service. 10 of us went and since there was a line outside they treated us horribly. We ordered one appetizer to share , the pizzas and a desert because it was a birthday. We didn’t stay extra or anything. The waiters, manager and owner...looked at us bad the whole time. As if we were doing the them a favor. They made us feel so uncomfortable. We went once but never going again. I wouldn’t suggest this place. Go to downtown Naples. Much easier to reach and that’s where the pizza is the best anyway. And cheaperMore
