Located in the vibrant neighborhood of Gazi, Athens, Matilde Pizza Bar will offer guests an authentic Italian wood-fired pizza with a New york twist. Guests will taste delicious pizza made with fresh and seasonal ingredients, relax in a stylish ambience that reflects Gazi area industrial roots, and experience outstanding service. It will be a place where people can get a quick snack, linger over a meal, or simply share a glass of wine.
Matilde Pizza Bar offerings are made with fresh and high quality ingredients—D.O.P. buffalo mozzarella from Salerno, I.G.T. wines and cheeses, D.O.P. Neapolitan San Marzano tomatoes and authentic prosciutto from Parma. The dough is a handcrafted combination of multiple flours, fermented for 48 hours. Fresh vegetables will be organic in most of the cases handpicked from local purveyors. Enjoy imported wines from across Italy with emphasis on Puglia, or sip on any of Matilde's innovative cocktails, drawing upon fresh herbs and juices. Enjoy al fresco dining on the open terrace, sit at the pizza bar and watch your pizza be made in front of your eyes. Guests will experience the warm consistency with those in Gigio's New York City establishments.
Gigio is ecstatic to be flanked by two New York friends, John Racanelli and Nick Angelakis.
