The folks at the new MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company in King of Prussia Town Center believe that “people are the best thing that can happen to anyone.”
But, if you’re a pizza-lover, then MidiCi might just be the best thing that could happen to you right now in Montgomery County.
The KOP spot recently celebrated its grand opening with a ceremonial and non-traditional ribbon-cutting by having officials pull leaves off a basil chain tied to the franchise’s signature indoor olive tree, aptly named Isabella.
“We’re very excited,” said Dawn Fisher, a teacher and local co-owner with her husband, Phillip. “This is years in the making, so we’re thrilled. And, King of Prussia was such an easy choice. It’s beautiful, and we love talking to the other restaurateurs. It’s all very cooperative with wonderful visitors.”
The place in Montco is the California-based company’s first Pennsylvania location, and 19th overall in 13 states with more to come in the area.
MidiCi, which means “you tell me” in Italian, serves traditional Neapolitan cuisine using fresh, natural ingredients, including house-made non-GMO dough. Guests can select from traditional and signature menu items, or create personalized pizzas in the open, center-staged bustling kitchen, called “the heart.”
“It’s so fresh, and whole,” Fisher said. “The dough has four ingredients. The prosciutto is aged 18 months. We pick basil off a plant. Everything is house-made, right in front of you. You know exactly what you’re eating. You don’t need to read the label here.”
Visitors can also enjoy gourmet appetizers, burrata, salads, and desserts. Established in 2015, the authentic Neapolitan, wood-fired pizza restaurant’s mission is to bring friends together.
In fact, as you walk into the restaurant, you’ll be greeted with a resounding “Ciao!” from the entire staff.
“The energy is really what sold us,” said Fisher. “Every person on the team has incredible knowledge. We were really looking for that warm, friendly, family-oriented culture. Plus, we’re pizza fanatics. Now, we can make lots of friends over pizza. Isn’t that the way it works?”
The opening adds to an already growing dining scene around Montgomery County with 1,600 restaurants from favorite brands to small town diners and cafes.
So, if you’re a pizza fan, try a slice, strike up a conversation with a friend, or even stranger, and then maybe you can decide what’s the best thing that can happen to a person: people, pizza, or both?
You tell me.
