Harpo’s Pizza.

Harpo’s has a new stand-alone pizza parlor in Nugegoda. Almost by default it’s one of the nicer places in that town now, and it makes for faster delivery to the suburbs – from Kotte to Battaramulla.

Food wise they have the same classic Italian pizzas plus some interesting pastas, all backed by a really professional service. It’s a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

The Location

The new Harpo’s Location is on Stanley Tillakaratne Mw., near the Jubilee Post Roundabout. This makes it accessible from Nugegoda, Kotte and even Nawala, Battaramulla and Boralesgamuwa. This outlet seems set to handle delivery for all the major suburbs since it can avoid the traffic of more central Colombo.


It’s also a nice place to dine-in. It’s a small but well appointed place, like a cafe. There’s colorful chairs and it’s well lit. Almost by default it’s one of the nicest places in Nugegoda.

The Food

This outlet has the usual tried-and-tested Harpo’s pizza menu with a few additions, or at least things we haven’t seen before. There are homegrown pizzas with flavors like spicy Sri Lankan, pepper pork, and a less localized pancetta and parmigiana (basically bacon and cheese). We tried one of the later (Rs. 1060 for six slices). The pancetta was crispy and delicious and there was lots of cheese – basically all you could ask for in a pizza. It was also more than enough for two of us.

That was enough food, honestly, but we wanted to try a pasta as well. They have a range of fresh pastas which look delicious, but they were all sold out. Those include pastas stuffed with crab and lobster, lamb, and prawn and mushroom pastas – all under Rs. 1,000. Another time.

What we tried was a bit of a reach – the Housewife’s Pasta (Rs. 600). I have actually made some version of this – tossing dhal and pasta together when that’s all I had in the fridge. This version was actually quite good. It included the base dhal and pasta but also added fried vegetables and an egg. A surprising mix, but tasty. They also more Italian pastas like a carbonara and bolognese.

Overall we’d say the food was quite satisfying.

The Service

Harpo’s joints are known for their professional and responsive service and this outlet is no exception. We were served by a manager, we think, who knew the menu and could tell us what wasn’t available and make useful suggestions. It seems like they’ve put experienced people from the main outlet to get this going and they know what they’re doing.

Conclusion

The Nugegoda Harpo’s brings quality pizza and pasta to the suburbs. In addition to making delivery faster (and cheaper), this pizza parlor is also a nice place to dine-in. It’s got the same high quality Italian food the original Harpo’s is known for with some interesting twists.
