First Look: Neo Pizza Napoletana


I caught up with Neo/Olivella’s owner Charlie Green last week, just as his Neo Pizza Napoletana was opening for its first day of business. Green has added thick panini-style sandwiches and fresh pastas to the menu mix, including a classic spaghetti with homemade meatballs (a traditional mix of pork, veal and beef), and ravioli topped with a ragu of tomatoes, sausage, eggplant and onions.

Me? I’m sticking with the terrific pizzas, constructed on soft, chewy, blistery crusts that you can fold over so you don’t dribble any of the creamy, gooey mozzarella that Neo makes in-house every morning.

Unlike most of the rest of Victory–and Olivella’s in Snyder Plaza– Neo’s spacious, edgy design makes you want to linger: a lounge in the back, glass hanger doors than swing open to bring the outdoors in, salvaged mirrors and doors, big patios, reclaimed shiplap wood, white subway tiles, exposed brick walls. Alas, there’s no by-the-slice option.

“We couldn’t exactly replicate what we were doing at Olivella’s,” Green says of the design. “It wouldn’t make sense.” Good choice.

(There’s free 2-hour parking across the street.)

    Charlie Green emailed today saying he’s lowering some of the prices on Neo’s menu.

    “Though the reviews and feedback we’ve gotten have been really postive, we’ve also noticed some feedback about some of our prices being high.”

    In response, the new menu reflects a few changes. According to Neo’s publicist:

    Appetizers now start at $5 vs. $8 previously
    Almost all pizza prices have been lowered by $1 or more
    Kids Pizza (Regular, which serves 2) is now $10. This equates to $5 pizza dinner per child
    Almost all sandwich-salad combos have been lowered to $8
    The PLT cold sandwich is $7. All sandwiches are $7-9
