Tucked comfortably in the heart of New York City lies Tiella, a quaint little dining spot that opened its doors to the city on July 12. Co-owned by Mario Coppola and chef Giuseppe Castellano of Cambridge’s Gran Gusto, the restaurant boasts an extensive selection of authentic Neapolitan cuisine – just without pizza.
A humble space of simple furnishings and subdued lighting, Tiella owns the smallest brick oven approved by the New York state. Baked at a searing 800 degrees, the appetising range of tiella dishes the eatery is named for are topped with ingredients such as creamy cheese and truffle, or prosciutto and foie gras. Homemade pasta is also said to be their specialty. With dishes such as risotto with lobster and pink grapefruit up on their menu, hopefully Tiella will be sticking around for a while.
Tiella is located on 1109 1st Avenue, New York.
