On Saturday evening, I heard good music and smelt a heavenly flavor wafting out of this place in North Goa, quite busy even though it was off season in Goa.
Authentic Italian Pizza in Goa?
Of course, I stepped in to check it out.
They were quite meticulous and focused on their preparation; always a good sign. I tapped my foot to the music, after giving an order for a Pizza de Goa; the fact that it had lots of cheese and chunks of the famed Goan sausages was mouth-wateringly appealing.
There was a Italian family sitting, with little kids running around shouting “Salami! Salami”, and a couple of other tourists. Enough seating for around 20 people, with 4-5 tables. Its a nice place to go with 4-5 friends and gorge on pizzas, which come in 2 sizes; 12-inch and 8-inch. Though I love the Cheese Burst crusts of Dominoes, thin crust wood fire oven pizzas are something else.
Since I was alone sadly :(, I had the 8-inch Pizza de Goa.
It was nice, hot, well baked, and bursting with cheesy goodness. I will be sure to try some other ones on my next visit. Definitely visit here if you ever happen to be in North Goa.
It’s a 10min bike ride from Vagator beach, just opposite Sakana, the Japanese restaurant I’ve covered earlier.
Feeling hungry :P?
