Featuring unique architectural pieces, weathered wood finishes and custom lighting that have become a Word Of Mouth signature, the interior design is a blend of finishes and appointments that highlight the theatre and joy of pizza making.
The signature custom temperature controlled dough room is visible to guests, who are able to see not only the pizza dough being made by hand, but as well the pastas for sister restaurant, Valenza.
The star of the show is our Acunto pizza oven, cast from clay from Mount Vesuvius’ volcanic rock and weighing over 3 tons. Custom-made specifically for Vero Pizzeria, and so hot that pies are cooked in about two minutes, this oven brings the true napoletana tradition for pizza to Brookhaven.
