This is your gateway to Southern Italy and the heart of true Neapolitan cuisine. It has always been a dream of mine to bring The Heart of Naples to Madison & share the experience of my travels through traditional Neapolitan cuisine and enchanting Neapolitan culture. My restaurant is dedicated to my family, my friends, my home city of Naples, and my home away from home – Madison.
Buon appetito e Grazie,
– Chef Salvatore Di Scala

In Naples once upon a time there was a beautiful habit. When a person was happy for some reason and wanted a coffee, instead of paying for one they paid for two. One they drank and the other was reserved for someone worse off who couldn’t afford it. In other words this was a coffee offered to humanity.
Here at Naples 15 we would like to take the initiative of the caffe sospeso and offer the Pizza Margherita suspended.
Our customers may participate by paying only half price for the second (suspended) pizza as a donation. You can enable those whom are less fortunate to eat a hot meal. This can also be done traditionally with a coffee. As a Neopolitan I grew up with this tradition and I believe it makes the heart feel better when you can do something for someone you don’t know and receive nothing in return.
If you are in need, please come in and ask our wait staff if there are any suspended pizzas available.
Learn more about this popular Neopolitan tradition. Or please read this excellent book written by acclaimed author and philosopher, Luciano De Crescenzo called; IL Caffe Sospeso.
