The menu is built around true Neapolitan pizza, and buffalo products. This is what has differentiated FLB and helped FLB develop a loyal customer base in all markets.”

Reflecting Marotta’s commitment to illustrating genuine Neapolitan pizza and cuisine with buffalo meats and cheeses, Fratelli La Bufala takes precise measures to ensure authenticity. For instance, Fratelli La Bufala’s pizza mirrors the rich tradition of Neapolitan pizza that dates back to the 17th century. Pizza took its present-day form in pre-Renaissance Naples, which is located in southern Italy. The world's first true pizzeria opened in Naples in 1830 and is still open today. Pizzerias in this era usually included a large brick oven, a marble counter where the crust was prepared, and a shelf lined with ingredients – just as Fratelli La Bufala does at each location. Maintaining Neapolitan tradition, trained pizzaiolos at Fratelli La Bufala assemble entire pizzas on the marble counter within view of their guests.
