Established in 2013. Argentine native and Chef Owner Manuel Hiraldo has brought the Mystic Pointe neighborhood a local spot for gourmet Italian pizza made with imported Italian ingredients. Our brick oven fired pizzas are handmade with only the freshest ingredients. Located by the marina, guests can enjoy a beautiful waterfront view while dining.
Chef Owner Manuel Hiraldo drew inspiration for his menu from his dining experiences while living in Argentina, from Chef Nicola Flauto. Nicola Flauto, or, as his friends called him, Don Nicola, was a master chef in the small town where Manuel grew up. Nicola migrated from Italy after the Second World War to the small town of San Nicolás, Argentina, 200 miles north of Buenos Aires. Nicola was an expert chef who refined his art in Naples. For reasons unknown, he never opened a restaurant. Instead he reserved his skills for special occasions with friends and family and was famous for his panettones and pizzas. The first time Chef Hiraldo tried Nicola's pizzas he realized what pizza should actually be. Nicola's devotion to the perfection of pizza is the inspiration behind Don Nicola's pizzeria.
