In Berlin, Zola, Stranero and Standard are the top 3 but I only see Zola and in your list. Gazzo? Really? Why would you include a Pizzeria which opened a few months ago as one of the best in Europe? I think you guys didn’t do your research properly.

April 3, 2019 8:20 am

As Italian, living in Belgium, I must say that the ones listed here looks like the bad pizzas (expecially the 10th), and you can say that by just looking at them (on google and tripadvisor photos), the pizza are not at all authentic Italian and probably bad taste and difficult to digest. If I would be you, I would completely remove the 10th. Come on, they do pizza with egg on top? What is that? Pizza carbonara? Anyway this is my top 9, tried in person, best pizza’s in Belgium: L’acqua e la farina 2018, La Louviere La Piola Pizza,… Read more »

Paesano in Glagsow is very good, that’s true. But I would say those at Oro (formerly Bella Napoli) in Kilmarnock Road, Glasgow, are even better. Under their old name they have won many international awards for their pizzas, rightly in my view

Il Cavour, Todi, Umbria, Italy. Hands down the best Pizza I’ve ever had. Their black truffle bianca pizza is to die for.
Also, albeit not in Europe, Arthurs in Paddington, Sydney, Australia was excellent when I lived there circa 20 years ago.
