Who would have thought it? In Coupeville?
Chef Mark spent the last year+ in Naples under the careful tutelage of THE premier pizza chef in Naples and then brought it home to Coupeville.
My first dish was the Ciao Bella, a real bread/crust red sauce pizza with hand made mozzarella, pancetta, pepperoncinni and procutto; genuine bites of heaven that go from making you wonder if you could eat it all to wondering where it all went! Good balance of herb and a little bit of spice into the wood fired oven then topped with arugula, no frills, just great honest food. Such a delicious break from what we usually settle for in pizza!
The menu is a good mix of red or white sauce pizza and other genuine Italian dishes, much of which feature local farm to market veg, and seafood from the bounty surrounding our island.
Two stories of dining and a balcony overlooking old town Coupeville and Penn Cove offer a warm and friendly ambiance. No pretense, and none necessary.
Friendly and attentive service, and a table-side visit from the chef and his manager assured us of the friendly atmosphere and the attention not only to detail of the food, but to an understanding of the food.
I find myself excited in anticipation of our next visit!
Welcome to Coupeville!
