Namo is a high-end Neapolitan-style pizzeria in the center of Ho Chi Minh City. Using only authentic, high-quality ingredients, many of which are sourced from Naples itself, Namo’s owners wanted to create a contemporary Italian restaurant with an artisanal touch.


Located on Hai Ba Trung Street—known for its upmarket restaurants, shops, and hotels—the two-story building with a mezzanine (previously an Indian restaurant), sits opposite the Park Hyatt hotel and Saigon’s historic opera house.


The owner’s specifications called for a complete overhaul of the building, including the relocation of stairs, and the construction of a ground-floor open kitchen, a preparation kitchen on the first floor, and two bars.
