Pizzaria Lisboa

Pizzaria LisboaChef José Avillez can do it all. At Belcanto he showcases avant-garde cuisine that is deliciously original. At Cantinho do Avillez he serves inventive bistro food. Now he opened a pizzeria!

At Pizzaria Lisboa Avillez uses the Italian pizza as a canvas to showcase ingredients and inspiration that are Portuguese. The restaurant feels as if it’s always been there, serving as meeting point for groups of friends.

The service is great. We asked for a pizza degustacion, a sequence of different pizzas cut into slices. Our server replied: what a great idea, of course we’ll do it! And so we tried pizza Chiado, Figueira, 28, Comércio, and Caravela.

Not once did we wish we were in Naples or Rome. Instead, we went out into the warm night feeling lucky to be in Lisbon.

Pizzaria Lisboa is located at Rua dos Duques de Bragança, 5H, tel. 21-155-4945. Reservations are a must. Click here for their web site.

  1. A “pizza degustation” — this is a wonderfully advanced idea for experiencing pizza that hopefully will find its way to deserving Pizza restaurants in North America….

  2. I fell for Portugal when I first visited a couple years ago and can’t wait to get back. I’ll have to visit this pizza place when I’m there again. In the meantime, I’ll “travel” there via this blog, which I was really happy to discover. It’s on my blogroll. :o}
