PhillyMINI presents Perfect Pizza • Thursday, August 13

Really spectacular pizza doesn’t happen by accident. It takes love, artistry and patience. Dave Ravanesi, the owner of Ravanese Pizzeria Napoletana in Glen Mills, PA, is passionate about neopolitan pizza. From his 30-hour homemade dough and house made mozzarella. Each pie is baked in a hand-made wood fired oven Dave had imported from Naples. Nothing but the freshest and finest ingredients go into a Ravanesi pizza and it shows in every slice!

Come join PhillyMINI for a relaxed evening of pizza passion and laughter! As your momma always said, “Patience is a virtue.” Great pizza takes patience. Each pizza is handmade and baked just for you by Dave, himself.
