Ravanesi Pizzeria Napoletana was brought to life for one reason: the love of Neapolitan pizza. After a trip to Napoli years ago, David Ravanesi was hooked and the obsession began.
Food preparation has always played an important role in the Ravanesi family. David’s great grandfather, Pietro, owned a slaughter house at the turn of the last century. His grandfather, Mario, owned a pizzeria restaurant and bar called The Jack O’ Lantern aka “The Jack.” His father made pizzas and ran the bar for the business after returning from service in the Marines. His mother, Mary, is an accomplished chef and she worked for many years in the Boston scene. She ran a catering business and starred on a suburban TV cooking show, QUICK AND EASY DISHES.
David is an honor graduate of the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in culinary. He received tutelage from a couple of the world’s best bakers and has trained with the VPN (Verace Pizza Napoletana USA). David has also worked in every facet of the restaurant business since his late teens.
