Chef Enzo Coccia

Enzo Coccia has transformed pizza from one of the most popular products, into an authentic gastronomic experience! Today he is the reference point for the culture of true Neapolitan handcrafted pizza. Research of quality ingredients, deep knowledge of Italian tradition, and an incredible passion for his job, have all led to his great success.

Born helping his father in their family pizzeria, Chef Coccia soon realized that he wanted to pursue the sought-after profession of a pizzaiolo. After a few years, he decided to take on a first challenge opening the doors of his first restaurant, La Notizia, which has been recommended as the best restaurant in Italy!

Chef Coccia defines himself simply as a pizza maker, but he is recognized by many as the initiator of the revolution of Neapolitan contemporary quality pizza. For Chef Coccia, his greatest honor is representing the quality of the Neapolitan pizza and conveying the warmth and friendliness of Italy to those around the world by offering the best of the Campania Region through his pizzas!
