Pizzeria Napoli (Baghdad)

Pizzeria Napoli (Baghdad)

The Pizzeria Napoli is a pizza restaurant in Baghdad, Iraq. The owner Waleed Mamoud previously lived in Italy and along with his brother, set up the restaurant on Saturday, June 27, 2003 after the fall of Saddam Hussein's government after the 2003 invasion of Iraq. He made a brisk business selling pizza to coalition troops, and even received a mobile phone from American forces to receive orders. His business suffered as the insurgency flared in Iraq and in December 2004, a suicide bomber blew up outside of coalition headquarters and severely damaged his restaurant, among other buildings nearby.
