TOP stands for The Original Pinsaria. Our goal is to offer an authentic Italian experience reinvented in a super fast and casual concept. In less than 90 seconds since the order your Pinsa, Pasta & Salad is ready to enjoy!

We are Italian and our restaurant has been built with Italian roots. We are proud to bring in the US our Pinsa, whose rare combination of delicious taste, digestibility and healthy ingredients allowed our crust to win multiple World Pizza Championships.

During 2012, Simone made the decision to attend evening classes at the Pinsa School in Rome, Italy, to learn how to prepare and bake the original Pinsa Romana. 

The discovery of Pinsa struck Simone’s imagination so much that he left his job at the Italian regional government office to take over a takeaway restaurant in Locarno, Switzerland with his wife, Letizia. After six months, the venture was such a big success that Pinsa was on all the local newspapers and media. In the meantime, Simone had made acquaintance with Mauro, the owner of a renowned café in Locarno, with whom he began a fruitful conversation about how to develop the Pinsa business in the United States.

where we come from?

At the end of 2015, Simone decided to focus on the project on developing his business idea in the United States. Simone and Mauro flew to the United States where they spent months to test the quality food market. During the fall of 2016, Gino, a great friend and successful entrepreneur with experience in the United States market, joined the team. Since 2017, the three members organized tasting events all over the United States and the response and consensus they received was amazing everywhere. 


We are proud and excited to share our Pinsa with you all!



Our mission is to play a pivotal role in the development of pizza in the United States by serving high quality Pinsa crust along with fresh toppings.

Pinsa has proven its worth worldwide due to its extravagant balance of flours and mother dough that is rich in innovation yet rooted in history. It has become so popular because its healthy, doesn’t take as much time to prepare, is incredibly versatile and it is delicious.

We want to spread awareness and knowledge about this incredible dough that can truly change the perception of pizza and how it should taste. The United States is a ripe market with health-conscious families and Millennials demanding different experiences. Pinsa is the next generation of pizza.
