Neapolitan Pizza Pioneer Campania Opening Near the Galleria

The pizzeria first opened in the West Village back in 2005.

Long before Cane Rosso dominated the local pizza landscape, there was a Neapolitan pizzeria called Campania. The West Village original shuttered back in 2012 after seven years in business, leaving behind only a Southlake location — until now.

A sign reveals Campania is moving into the Alpha Road space previously occupied by cheese factory/restaurant La Perla d'Italia. According to the website for the Village on the Green mixed-use development, the restaurant will be called Campania Pizza & More.

The development at the corner of Alpha and Noel Roads has seen its fair share of restaurant revolving doors in recent years, including DRG's Go Fish — where Top Chef alum Tiffany Derry once hung her hat — and the modern Mexican Maximo. (An operating partner for Maximo cited poor visibility as a factor for its closure.) Other businesses currently operating in the Village on the Green include Fat Straws bubble tea, salad spot Endive, Indian restaurant Mughlai, and Maximo replacement Loca Luna.
