About MidiCi:
Inspired by his travels throughout Naples, co-founder Amit Kleinberger sought to bring authentic Neapolitan Pizza to the U.S.A. as a means to share his passion for people and food. The restaurant was designed to foster authentic human connections, and reflect MidiCi’s mission statement, “We Bring Friends Together”. Pronounced Mee-Dee-Chee, MidiCi means, “You tell me!” in Italian, reflecting a double-entendre at the core of the concept: the value of people telling each other about their lives, fostering friendships, and the personalization approach to the Neapolitan Pizza.

Honoring the tradition, passion and art of Neapolitan Pizza-making, the way it was invented over 300 years ago, MidiCi uses traditional wood-fired ovens custom hand built in Naples with an internal temperature of 900 degrees to bake pizzas to perfection. The original MidiCi restaurant opened in Los Angeles, CA in 2015 and the brand forecasts opening 350 additional restaurants over the next 6 years in markets such as Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Scottsdale, Denver, Dallas, Houston, Oklahoma City, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Boston, New York, and more.
