The Stoneybatter food boom continues, with the opening of new pizzeria Stone on Manor Street. It's the first restaurant from owners Cian O'Colmain and Mary O'Mahony, who say they "just love pizza" and saw potential for a Stoneybatter pizzeria. The Dublin 7 neighbourhood has had a pizza shaped hole since Cotto closed this time last year, and Stone has been in the works for about the same amount of time.
Alessio Torre, formerly of Pi and Rita's in Ranelagh, has been brought in as head chef, and the Puglian who's been making pizza for over 15 years calls his style "pizza alla Pugliese" - similar to Neapolitan, which is what Pi and Rita's both specialise in. The menu features bruschetta, salads and cured meats, as well as classic pizzas like the 'Carne' with San Marzano tomato, basil, Fior di Latte, pepperoni, Italian fennel sausage, pancetta, chilli oil and grana padano, and the 'Nduja' with San Marzano tomato, basil, Fior di Latte, nduja, ricotta, honey, extra virgin olive oil and grana padano. Desserts are typically Italian, with tiramisu, affogato, panna cotta and gelato.
Stone is open from Tuesday - Sunday for dinner, with lunch from Friday - Sunday, and they cater for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs. You can see the full menu on their wesite.
