Gables Bites: Pummarola Would Make Nonna Proud


Pummarola 2 Pummarola 1

By: Patricia Guarch Wise of Miami Nice

Have you noticed a new little restaurant on Aragon called Pummarola? If you’re a pizza fan and you’re wondering if this is the real, authentic deal, here are two little clues that I’ve gathered:

1.) A chic woman with shiny gold sneakers and four girls under the age of ten rolled up on bicycles for lunch while I was there. “Ciao! Come stai?!” she says to Pummarola’s staff as she walks in. Clearly, she’s a regular.

2.) The staff at Pummarola answer her in Italian and they merrily chat away. This is all the proof I need to believe that they know what they’re doing.

It’s just an additional perk that Pummarola is run by a family reviving a concept introduced by their grandmother in Naples, Italy more than forty years ago. Her restaurant had the same name, served the same kind of food and was a great success for more than twenty years.

Pummarola is a pizza, pasta and sandwich spot that toes the line between formal restaurant and fast/casual food spot. You order at the counter off of a menu on video screens mounted on the wall and they bring the food out to your table. But don’t be fooled into thinking that means the food is anything like “fast food.”

Top off your Neapolitan pizza with fresh ingredients like white truffle oil, eggplant, zucchini, arugula, fresh ricotta and more. Pizzas come in both a reasonable personal size, perfect for a quick work lunch, or a large sharing size.

Hopefully, this bright young restaurant on the Coral Gables scene will last just as long as the original Pummerola. We’re sure their nonna would be proud.
