Opening Alert: OIivella Restaurant, North Bergen, NJ

Olivella, a new Italian restaurant, has opened in North Bergen. This is the first New Jersey project from chef Salvatore Olivella, a native of Naples, Italy who’s consulted for many NYC pizza spots including Marta, the Serafina Group, L’asso, Numero 28 and more. He also co-owns Olivella’s Neo Pizza Napoletana, a group of 4 restaurants in Dallas, Texas.

The restaurant serves (View Menu) brick oven pizza and a full menu of antipasti, pasta and entrees – often with inventive twists from the chef like Sushi di Parma: housemade fior di latte cheese wrapped in prosciutto di San Daniele and Gnocchi Alla Romagnola: with porcini, fresh truffle in a Pinot Grigio sauce.

His pizzas will showcase Neapolitan tradition like a Margherita DOC, the spicy Inferno (housemade fresh mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, ‘nduja spreadable pork sausage from Calabria, spicy soppressata and spicy honey), the Frank Sinatra (burrata, bresaola, arugula and lemon dressing) and the Agrodolce Olivella (housemade fior di latte, gorgonzola, pear, parmigiano, walnuts and honey) among others.


For his Garden State debut, Olivella and his partners have built a 50-seat restaurant with a wood-burning pizza oven as the centerpiece and rear dining room flooded with natural light through a glass roof.
