True Neopoltan Pizza In New England: Posto

If you want authentic Neopolitan pizza in New England, AVPN certified, you only have one choice. Posto in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts, just recently became certified.

In all of New England! That says quite a lot when you think about all the Italian restaurants in Boston and Providence.

I've never been to Posto, but must say that I'm intrigued. They are on my radar and definitely a place that I plan to visit. That they would go through so much trouble to become certified says something to me about their quality of food and standards. I'll definitely walk in there with high expectations!

The True Neapolitan Pizza Association (AVPN) Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, is a non-profit organization founded in June 1984 in Naples. The AVPN is represented abroad by two delegations: VPN Americas and VPN Japan. According to the website, delegations in China and Korea are in the works.

Also, just in case you're wondering, as I was, the ingredients of a Neopolitan pizza are: flour, plum tomatoes, extra-virgin olive oil, buffalo and cow’s milk mozzarella.

Most definitely some of my favorite things! Yum!

Do you have to request to be rated, or do they travel around doing the ratings willy-nilly? Interesting, in any case.

suldog - It's a whole training process that is entered into voluntarily. Then from what I understand, someone comes from the AVPN and inspects the premises and tests the methods, etc. I tried calling to get more information, but couldn't reach anyone. Again, from what I understand, but wasn't able to confirm, many places have taken the test for certification, but it's very rigorous and most do not pass, so it's a real honor to get certified.
