Neo Pizza Napoletana by Olivella’s to Open in Victory Park in Dallas

Yow. Zah. I forgot about Victory Park. Now comes word that Charlie Green, the pizza dude behind Olivella’s, is opening a ginormous new restaurant called Neo Pizza Napoletana by Olivella’s in Victory Park. The charming PR person tells me the restaurant will be “nearly triple-the-size location and [have] new menu items.”  She goes on to say, “Charlie is banking on Neo Pizza helping breathe life into the district that’s been working to revamp its former super-affluent image. (Neo Pizza’s individual gourmet pizzas start at $7, salads start at $6 and sandwiches at $8.)”  I wish they’d put in a fabulous bowling alley at Victory Park. How fun would that be?

    Pizza is the new hot food trend. It must be. All these pizza places popping up (Fireside, Olivella’s, Neo, Eno’s and Lombardi’s soon- to-be-pizza place in the old Chips location) and last week I ate at Keith McNally’s newish pizza place, Pulino’s, in lower Manhattan. The place was PACKED. It starts there and migrates here.

    Olivella’s has been open in it’s Highland Park location for sometime. It’s small and cozy with awesome pizza. I am looking forward to a victory park location. Now I just have to get my wife to go downtown.

    I went to Naga Thai on Saturday and walked across the street to check out the construction… This place is looking good- and lots of cool exterior signage. This appears to be the type of place Victory should have attracted to begin with. And on a side note, if you haven’t been to Naga Thai go ASAP. It’s awesome!!!

    Nice to see Jay give praise to fellow pizza owners. I love Olivella’s too but since Jay’s Cane Rosso opened in Preston Hollow – I have no need to venture out of the hood for damn good pizza. Cane Rosso is by far my favorite..

    “Banking” on it? Nothing in Victory is “banking” . . . not even the ATM!

    Olivella’s, Neo, whatever the name, if Charlie is baking his thin Napoletana pizza, with his imported sweet tomato sauces, it warrants going anywhere for it! Count me in…
