Recreating and interpreting traditional Neapolitan dishes, ‘O Munaciello is a full-menu restaurant and pizzeria located in the MiMo district of Miami. The restaurant has its roots as one of the most celebrated restaurants in Florence, Italy.
‘O Munaciello uses local produce and fine imported goods to create dishes found nowhere else in the South Florida region. Its pizzas are even baked in a made-to-measure brick oven handmade in Naples, Italy. Our commitment to authentic cuisine, outstanding service, and a unique atmosphere make ‘O Munaciello a unique addition to the Miami culinary scene.
At the helm of our brick oven is Pizza Master Carmine Candito, who comes from a long line of Neapolitan restaurateurs and pizza makers.
From a young age, Carmine began working at his father’s popular restaurant “Un Posto Al Sole” in Naples, Italy, eventually becoming a pizza maker for two leading pizzerias in the region.
Carmine eventually moved to Florence, Italy, to work at Le Scuderie which was then transformed into O’Munaciello over 10 years ago.
Elia Cui serves as Executive Chef of ‘O Munaciello Miami. Originally from the Genoa region of Italy, his culinary passion lies in the Sardinian tradition, where his father is from.
He has experience working in some of the most popular dining venues across Italy, including Porto Cervo (Billionaire), Milan (Byblos), Florence (Pizzeria ZeroZero, Ristorante IX) and Pisa (Villa Lena).
Being exposed to a wide range of regional Italian culinary methods, Elia works to not only maintain the authenticity and traditions of Neapolitan cuisine, but also help rethink some dishes with a fresh approach, served only at ‘O Munaciello Miami and its original location in Florence, Italy.
