From Napa with Love
I’d heard that my good friends, husband and wife team, Petar and Dani had moved from opposite Pirates in Napa’s new square, where last year they served some 80,000 customers … sounds amazing, more so when you realise that was in a short summer season, but all will be revealed soon, and confirmed when you taste their Pizza …
Living the dream
Coming from Bulgaria, this wonderful couple are living their dream. Both studied and completed their Diplomas in Bulgaria, they met in Cyprus back in ’94, whilst working at the delightful Yianna Marie Hotel in Protaras, where Petar, continued to study hospitality and then moved onto the wonderful Nissaki Beach Bar in Napa in 2000 …
Together they realised they were a great team and in 2012 they opened their own Pizza Takeaway down in Napa, right in the middle of nightlife street and their fame just exploded, tbh, I grabbed a slice almost every night when I was PR Manager at Carwash Disco in 2013 …
So I asked Petar why everyone loves his pizza so much … he said “you probably wont believe me but one day, I was mixing 30 kg of dough for pizza and made a little mistake, but I thought it might be nice so I tried it and it was just delicious, and wife ‘Dani’ agreed, so that night we served it and everyone just said wow! this is the best pizza in town and so we were very happy!” While
Last year they decided to move to Paralimni, saying the season was too short in Napa, so if you’re in the Paralimni area you’re all in for a nice surprise … with 18 Signature Pizzas or you can create your own … and if you want a few side snacks they serve amazing Burgers, delicious Garlic Bread and Falafels, and Chicken or Beef Kebabs with Potato Wedges or chips of course, oh and mad Onion Rings, and make sure you add a portion of Mozzarella Sticks they’re wicked, or a few Crunchy Chicken Tenders and btw, there’s a well stocked drinks fridge 😉
Their new menu is just in, using on the the freshest local vegetables and imported pizza base from Greece and herbs and spices from Italy, keeping many of the classics, coz they’re hard to beat, but adding some signature pizzas like the Familia Special which ‘Dani’ persuaded me to try today and omg its absolutely delicious! … While I was waiting for my Pizza I grabbed a lovely Double Espresso made with delicious freshly ground Lucaffe from Italy, Mamma Lucia Blend …
Now if you like your pizza meaty, I recommend the Meatballs Pizza, a mix of Meatball, Bacon, Sausage, Pepperoni on a BBQ Sauce Base just mind blowing … or The Hot Mix Pizza, topped with Chicken, Pepperoni, Meatballs, Green and Red Peppers, and Jalapeno Peppers … Hmm and The Tandoori Pizza is Tandoori Chicken, Pepperoni, onions, Jalapeno Peppers and Garlic Sauce, OMG!!!
Naturally, on top of Melted tomato sauce, you can add anything, but occasionally I keep it vegetarian … Start with loads of Cheese & Tomato, add more cheese 😉 and then any veg they’ve got on the menu … and spice it up if you wanna with some Jalapino peppers, with my half of it covered in Black Olives Mmm!
Takeaway & Delivery
It’s a take away, but naturally they do delivery in the surrounding area, and there’s a few tables inside or outside on their covered patio so you can enjoy your pizza fresh out of the traditional Blodgett American Pizza Oven … and a few TV screens to keep in touch with the live sports …

You’ll find Familia Pizzeria at 14, Megalou Alexandrou, in Paralimni, just off Protaras Road by Elezantre Furniture and next to Rodolphos Butchers.
