New Businesses in San Carlos CA: Doppio Zero
It’s a busy past couple of months in San Carlos! A lot of new popular restaurant chains have been recently been opening in Laurel Street, which means new exciting culinary experiences for people in San Carlos.
Let’s welcome first, Doppio Zero – a bar, pizzeria and southern Italian restaurant that offers traditional Italian dishes, homemade pastas, and renowned Neapolitan pizzas. The restaurant provides a warm and lively family atmosphere, making it an authentic Italian dining experience.
One of the finest pizzerias in town!
Doppio Zero in San Carlos is actually the fourth Bay Area location for the pizzeria chain. Gianni Chiloiro and Angelo Sannino, the founders, plan to open a fifth eatery in downtown Campbell this autumn.
The San Carlos establishment, which began operating on June 16 in the former Otra Vez Mexican Kitchen (with space of 3,000 sq. feet), offers almost identical food options to the other locations but boasts a complete selection of beer, wine, and cocktails. The mixologist from Vida, another restaurant chain owned by Chiloiri and Sannino, created the cocktail menu for the San Carlos site, which Gianni Chiloiro claims is superior to any other location.
Doppio Zero offers Neapolitan pizzas and homemade pastas. The pizza dough is made with very little yeast, resulting in a 72-hour rising time. The restaurant has a moderate pricing strategy and a pleasant atmosphere that attracts a diverse clientele.
The owner, Chiloiro, plans to open another location between San Carlos and San Francisco next year due to the positive response to the restaurant’s concept.
About Doppio Zero
In 2014, a Southern Italian restaurant first opened in Mountain View. Doppio Zero since then has rapidly gained popularity in the thriving Italian restaurant industry of the Bay Area. The San Francisco Bay Area community has embraced Doppio Zero’s exceptional Southern Italian cuisine, which has earned numerous local and international food accolades.
The foundation of Doppio Zero is based on the customs of Southern Italy, which offers distinctive dishes and flavors to the Bay Area. The restaurant primarily emphasizes on the preparation of fresh pasta, seafood, and Neapolitan pizza, which perfectly showcases the food and dining traditions of Southern Italian regions.
