Via Caravaggio 147
In October 2021, Pat went to Naples, Italy to train under Enzo Coccia who is the world renowned leading expert on Neapolitan pizza. Enzo wrote the globally recognized standards for authentic Neapolitan pizza. Pat worked closely with Enzo and his son Andrea at his two Michelin star restaurants named Pizzeria La Notizia. After hundreds of hours of training, Pat successfully completed the highest level of training. More importantly, Pat will always be part of Enzo’s restaurant family in Naples, Italy.
Pat and his wife, Kathryn, will be opening Via Caravaggio 147 in the Paso Market Walk. The restaurant will strive to provide truly authentic Neapolitan pizza to the Paso Robles region. As Pat learned firsthand in Italy from Enzo, this can only be accomplished with perfect “passione, ingrediente y tecnica” (passion, ingredients and technique).
The business name, Via Caravaggio 147 was born out of the street name and addresses of the two Michelin star restaurants in which Pat trained. The street name in Italy of the two restaurants location is ‘Via Caravaggio’. The two addresses on the street are 53 Via Caravaggio and 94 Via Caravaggio. Pat spent countless hours working in both. As a show of respect to Enzo and both restaurants, Pat and Kathryn chose to combine the two numbers (53 + 94 = 147) and name the restaurant Via Caravaggio 147.
