Authentic Italian Fare at DeSano Pizzeria Napoletana

Austin’s hunger for pizza continues to grow as Nashville’s DeSano Pizzeria Napoletana makes its debut on Burnet Road.

DeSano Pizzeria

We started with the Spinach salad.

DeSano takes authenticity seriously with Ingredients flown in weekly from Italy. They even make their own dough in the Dough Room, which you can peek into on your way to place an order. Their four Grande Forni ovens were handcrafted in Naples from volcanic rock and ancient brick. That’s some serious authenticity. Each also bears the name of a patron saint of Italy to honor the tradition of Italian cooking.

On the menu you’ll find traditional neapolitan pizzas that include Margherita and Marinara, a classic cheese pizza. Things get really exciting with the specialty pizzas. We tried out the San Gennaro, topped with tomato sauce, sausage, peppadews, garlic, caramelized onions, scamorza, mozzarella di bufala, and pecorino romano. Pizzas come in a small and large size. The large is enough for 3-4 people.

Aside from pizza, the menu has a small selection meatballs, calzones, and salads. Of course you’ll want to save room for dessert. The dessert menu features biscottis, a daily selection of gelato, and an assortment of cannoli. On our next trip we’ll definitely have to sample the Nutella Dessert Pizza.

A pistachio cannoli made for a delicious finisher.

As you head to the counter to place an order, you’ll pass several refrigerators with beverages. Here you’ll find a great selection of Italian wines and beers. You can pick up bottles of wine that range from $20 to $40.

DeSano offers a great selection of Italian beer and wine.

The diner is spacious and casual. Several wide tables line the center of the room. It’s got the look and feel of a BBQ joint, along with some delicious and smoky smells. Just like BBQ joints, your meal is served on a parchment-paper-lined metal tray with plastic utensils. There’s even a condiment bar with minced garlic, cheese, pepper, and oils. The back room includes two giant TVs so you can catch a game with a slice.
