Crossroads of Tradition and Innovation: the Pies of Pizzeria Bardea

Bardea takes an Innovative Approach at Italian Cuisine, and Pizza is no Exception!

June 11, 2019

We're honored to have Pizzeria Bardea in our pizza family and their tantalizingly delicious pizza at Pizzadelphia Fest on June 15 at the Navy Yard. Get your tickets before they're gone. 

Chef Antimo DiMeo, a native of southern Italy, grew up surrounded by the incredible food culture of his home country. Over his life, the influence of culinary art was so profound to him that he built his career around food. After mastering his craft under chef Gennaro Esposito in the Amalfi Coast-located restaurant La Torre Del Saracino, he arrived in Philadelphia to further refine his skills and develop his style.

Five years after meeting the Scott Stein at Arde Osteria, Bardea was incepted, rewriting what traditional Italian cuisine is. Stein owns Bardea and Dimeo acts as executive chef and co-owner.

Congrats to our sister restaurant @pizzeriabardea also featuring our signature ---- - Upside down pizza, fresh mozzarella, grana padano, ricotta, garlic oil, tomato drizzle.

Located in Wilmington, Delaware, Pizzeria Bardea (pronounced bar-DAY-uh) presents a refreshingly unique take on Italian cuisine with the verve and variety of the new world. The self proclaimed “interpretive Italian” restaurant employs only the finest regional ingredients from Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey to bring Bardea’s dishes to life, and their pizza is no exception. Pizzeria Bardea offers four types of pies - margherita, salsiccia, upside down, and spicy honey - all of which are straightforward yet astonishing.

It’s pie day everyday here at Bardea #infinitenumbers #infiniteflavors
