Best pizza in LisbonHow do these rankings work?
Thin and crispy pizza where they are super generous with the toppings. Throw in really good cocktails and this is the perfect place to start a night out.
Super crispy pizza cooked in a wood fired oven all within a couple of minutes. The end result is light, crunchy and perfectly salty and soft in the middle. Add some of their wonderful chilli oil for an extra treat.
The perfect place to get a slice on the go. Traditional Italian cooking and a concern for sustainability are the two main things that they focus on here. So, while they bring the sausages, the mozzarella and the parmesan cheese fresh from Italy, they make the base from local ingredients. Tutti freschi.
Organic, seasonal, gourmet and homely, In Bocca Al Lupo is headed by Chefs Mandillo & Castro who bring a new approach to the Roman pizza baked in a traditional stone oven. Pizzas here are based on the very best organic ingredients sourced directly from producers in Portugal and Italy. Fresh, inventive and delicious.
Situated on top of Olival Street, not far from the Museum of Ancient Art, the Come Prima Italian Restaurant is already a must for Italian food lovers. A cosy space, with a romantic atmosphere they serve some amazing pasta and risotto dishes (including one with shaved truffles!). Their pizzas have been praised all over the world, winning multiple awards, so you need to order one of those.
They start with 100% Italian organic wholewheat flour and then add natural yeast ‘lievito madre’, water, natural salt and cold pressed organic virgin olive oil. The next step is letting the sourdough rise slowly before their pizzaiolo skilfully stretches the sourdough, resulting in a soft crust.
They then top it all off with only fresh, natural and organic ingredients. The grand finale? A delicious low-gluten and easily digestible artisan pizza.
Their secret? Unique pizzas, craft beers, elegant surroundings and an oven that is in pride of place at the heart of the restaurant. That’s 35 craft beers to be precise, an oven that they worked on for months perfecting and some of the best pizza you will ever taste in your life.
All served in a wonderfully relaxed and elegant room with true professionals at the helm.
