The art of making hand-crafted, traditional Neapolitan pizza is emphasized in the design for Falora Pizza & Espresso. Clay products and exposed Douglas Fir echo the wood-fired cooking process. Powder-coated white steel is a modern interpretation of traditional Italian marble slabs. A Stefano Ferrara handmade oven was imported from Italy and a custom made, 24-foot long community table celebrates the Italian love for gathering and conversation.
