If you don't like pizza I'm sorry but we can't be friends. Who doesn't love a good slice of happiness? Fresh out of the oven and as close to the authentic pies as it gets, we've compiled a list of the best places you can hit up if you're craving for a satisying pizza experience. Buon appetito!

No. 145, Thimbirigasyaya Road, Colombo 5.

The folks at YAMU have made numerous stops at Giovanni’s for their wood-fired pizzas. They're one of the few places in town that has been consistently knocking it out of the park.

Caffe Michelangelo
530 Nawala Road, Nawala

Caffe Michaelangelo does thin crust, wood-fired pizza, with a lot of Sri Lankanized toppings on offer. Their delivery game is on par, too.

Harpo's Pizza
30, De Seram Road, Mount Lavinia

Harpo's Pizza does some pretty great pizzas using high quality ingredients. They're not cheap, but the pizzas are authentic and  you get more bang for your buck than most other places.

Dolce Italia
5, Skelton Road, Colombo 05

Dolce Italia is a simple, charming Italian restaurant and bakery on a busy square on Havelock Road. It's run by a few Italians, and is surprisingly affordable.

No. 615 A, Nawala Road, Rajagiriya.

Rocco's has a lovely dine-in restaurant on Nawala Road, around the Rajagiriya side, that serves up really good wood-fired pizza, ravioli, lamb chops and tiramisu. They've got quite an expansive menu, with over 30 pizza toppings to choose from, and their staff is fast and attentive, making for a smooth experience overall. 

191, Thimbirigayaya Road, Colombo 05

Domenico's has been around for a couple of years now, and settled into an easy casual dining experience. Their focus is on their authentic Italian pizzas, using imported ingredients and recipes.

Il Ponte (Hilton)
2, Sir Chittampalam A Gardiner Mawatha, Colombo 01

Il Ponte at Hilton is one of the older Italian restaurants in Colombo. It may not be as popular as it was back in the day, but their food is still pretty solid all-round, although the setting could use some work.

Oro 1889
ODEL, Alexandra Place, Colombo 07.

The only bright spot in the generally cheerless second floor of Liberty Arcade, Oro 1889 continues to hold firm on its promise of authentic Neapolitan pizzas, served in a tasteful and intimate setting. We have never been disappointed by them.

BreadTalk (Park Street)
No 33, Park Street, Colombo 02

The new BreadTalk on Park Street has a slightly different take than its other local branches. In addition to serving baked or fried goods, they have also introduced salads, sandwiches, pizza and pasta on the menu.

Napoli Artisan Pizza
4 Rohini Rd, Wellawatte

Napoli is the latest artisan pizza place in town - this time in Wellawatte. They dishes out a range of wood-fired, thin crust pizza along with some delicious bruschetta and pasta. 

Pranzo (Waters Edge)
316, Polduwa Rd, Ethul Kotte Road, Battaramulla

If you're keen on having some good pizza with an amazing view, Pranzo is the place to be. It's the Italian restaurant at Waters Edge, and apart from the thin-crust pizza, they also serve up a range of pastas, lasagna and even grilled meats on offer. 

Honey Beach Club (The Kingsbury Hotel)
The Kingsbury Hotel, Janadhipathi Mawatha, Colombo 01

The pizza menu at Honey Beach Club is pretty interesting. They use fresh, high quality toppings on their pizzas. They're not exactly cheap, but affordable, despite of being a high-end hotel in Colombo. 

We've got all your topping needs covered with this list of authentic pizzerias scattered around Colombo city.

Hi Krishanth, these are our Top Picks. Everything here is rated 4/5 or above, which is why Arthur's isn't there. We didn't have the best experience at their outlets so we gave it a 3. :)
