Via Napoli is known for making some of the best wood-fired pizzas in Sydney, and now Owner Luigi Esposito is honing in on a different variation – la tonda Romana – at his new venue.

170 Grammi is slated to open on the corner of Crown and Foveaux streets in Surry Hills mid-May and is the fourth venue for Esposito.

The restaurateur relocated sibling venue Pizza Fritta 180 further down Crown Street to make room for the new opening, with the store now operating next to Via Napoli.

La tonda Romana pizza is known for its flat, round shape and thin crust, and while you often find rectangular slices, circular, thin pizzas are not easy to come by at restaurants.

“Sydneysiders love their pizza, so we wanted to give them an alternative style that showcases another beautiful part of Italy,” says Esposito.

“The thin crust going crunch with every bite matches perfectly with the freshness and flavours of the toppings, which melt in your mouth,” says Esposito.

The final pizzas have yet to be confirmed, but porchetta will make an appereance.

170 Grammi has room for 60 guests across indoor and outdoor seating and a 1.9-tonne pizza oven handmade in Italy, which is the focal point of the space.

The restaurant will open for dinner from Wednesday to Sunday.
