Harpo's Pizza (Colombo 7)

79 Gregory's Road, Colombo 7

  • Call 0114869000
  • Open 11 to 10 PM from Sun-Thursday, open till 12 PM on Friday and Saturday


Harpo's is known for their premium pizzas. The delivery though was an arduous process and took way longer than we expected.



Harpo's Pizza generally serves up some of the best pies in the city, with fresh toppings and a wide range.
They've recently launched their Online Delivery site, so we thought we'd check that out during a special lunch sesh with the editorial team, but our experience wasn't as breezy as we thought it'd be.


The Site

The fancy new website portal is www.harpospizza.com. You're required to sign in/sign up before you can place your order, and you'll get a confirmation number to your mobile phone. 


The interface is quite alright, with rather bright colours and a categorised menu for easy access. It's easy , all you do is select your pizza, the size, and then it'll be added to your cart. Same goes for any other item you'd like to order (pizzas, sides, desserts etc).

Once you're done ordering, you go to your cart and then enter in your details, where you'd like to get it delivered etc.

Once you've made your decision, you confirm your order and then you're directed to the payment options and choose between card and cash.

Note: They have some excellent deals on their websites, so make sure you check them out. 

The Pizzas

We took the Lunch Deal they had on offer, which means you order a 12" pizza of your choice and get a regular 9" pizza (there are only a couple of choices, of course) for free. 



The two pizzas you can choose as your free pizza, are the Margherita and a Pizza Pollo.
For our main, we got the Pizza Pancetta and Parmigiana (Pork) which comes with crispy bacon mozarella and parmesan on a tomato base for Rs. 1700. The pizza was delicious with the mozarella and parmesan coming through perfectly. None of the ingredients overpowered each other and the tomato base was light and tangy.

The Pizza Pollo (Chicken) was so good I would've paid more just to have a 12" to myself. It comes with bits of spicy chicken, roast capsicum, sauteed onions along with mozarella cheese on a tomato base. The chicken wasn't that spicy but I didn't mind. The onions were nice and crunchy and surprisingly enough didn't overthrow the pizza. 

For dessert, we got the Apple Crumble Pizza (Rs. 600). Normally the idea of a dessert pizza sounds off to me, but I didn't dislike this. The apple was nice and sweet and the whole pizza had a slight cinnamon tinge to it. It also came with a light spread of nutella at the base, which we loved. Texturally this is a treat, with squashy nutella, crispy crumble, and lightly toasted pizza base.

Service

We were seriously craving good pizza and drink on a gloomy afternoon, but of course life is never as simple as that.
Once we ordered, we were sent a confirmation message through the site telling us that our pizzas would be delivered shortly.
About an hour later with no sign of the pizzas, we called them up and after a lengthy conversation they tell us that the orders haven't gone through due to an error in their internet connection. They told us that it'd take another 45 minutes for them to deliver and we were having second thoughts about whether it was worth waiting 2+ hours for a pizza. We caved since we were so hungry and it was 3 PM at this point and most lunch spots were closed, plus they told us the pizzas were on the house due to the inconvenience. 
We appreciated the apologetic service, but still, nobody needs to wait 2+ hours for a pizza so that's a minus point from me.

Conclusion

The pizzas (when they finally arrived) were hot, and delicious. We were told the site glitch wouldn't happen again, but if you want to make sure your slice is on the way, maybe stick to the classic telephone order instead.


TIP

Try the Apple Crumble dessert pizza.
All Reviews

Harpo's serves up some good pizza but they had a huge site glitch when we ordered through their new online-order option.

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.

Harpo's Pizza is still a classic (though only five years old). They combine strange and interesting ingredients with a highly professional kitchen and delivery outfit. If you're having a party or working late or just don't want to cook, Harpo's Pizza still can't be beat.

Harpo's is the third best pizza chain in colombo.(Giovanni's and Michaelangelo staying at the top)when it comes to pizza taste. However,delivery service is hopeless and absurd. Made an online delivery via card payment at 9.30 pm and received a notification saying that my order has been placed. However I didn't receive a confirmation sms and I called them. The customer service representative was very kind to let me know that online orders don'f get accepted after 9.30pm. Only pick harpo's if you are willing to dine-in. Delivery is a no go

Got The 19" Pizza with 4 Different Toppings, and received free Garlic Bread and Chicken Lollipops and a Bottle of Coke Free, As for Quality to Quantity its Fully Worth it for Just under Rs.5000/- But one of the toppings had Pineapple which i feel they should have informed while ordering. But all in all its worth it.

Extremely disappointed and will not recommend this place to anyone.

We are in Nawala and ordered 5 large pizzas from Nugegoda outlet at about 12:45pm. The pizzas were delivered to us around 2:40pm. That is nearly 2 hours. We had to call them twice and ask what happened to our order. When we ask why it got so delayed, they say, they are delivering it from Gregories road outlet.

When the pizzas were finally arrived, they were cold (like it was made yesterday) and no salt or spices added to it, nor they have provided any salt packets. No taste at all.

This is a very bad experience and without a doubt, the worst pizza I ever had. Do not order from this place.
