From Naples to New York: The Epic Journey of Pizza

Pizza is an international sensation, known and loved in every corner of the globe. But it has a story, and that story begins in Italy and ends on your plate at Bosino Italian Pizza Restaurant in New York City.

Naples, Italy, in the late 18th century, saw the birth of pizza as we know it today. The Neapolitan pizza, with its trademark thin, crispy base, and fresh, local ingredients, was a simple yet filling meal for those who couldn't afford elaborate dishes. Fast forward a few centuries and this humble dish had crossed the Atlantic Ocean and reached the shores of America.

Italian immigrants brought pizza to New York City, where it was initially sold by street vendors before pizzerias began appearing in the early 1900s. The quintessential New York slice, larger and crispier than its Italian predecessor, quickly became a staple of the city's food scene.

Today, at Bosino, located at 201 West 103rd Street, Upper West Side, we honor the rich history of pizza by serving you the most authentic Italian pizza in the city. We respect the tradition of simplicity and quality ingredients while also embracing the spirit of innovation that has characterized pizza's journey from Italy to New York.

Join us at Bosino and taste a slice of history, as you dig into our delicious pizzas, made with love and commitment to the legacy of this universally loved dish.
