Best pizza in Lisbon without a doubt

Went here for our final meal in Lisbon and we were not disappointed. Staff were very nice and helpful. The food was just magnificent as was the wine. It was the cheapest meal of our holiday and yet the best! Don't be scared of entering the restaurant though the back way.

For me this is the best pizza in town. Fresh and outstanding ingredients. The only bad thing is the waiting time, this place is always packed. If you don't mind waiting, this is the place to go!

Arrived at 9 and had only 15min to wait. Realized later on when you arrive later than 9 it could be you wait up to one hour to be seated (they do not accept reservations). Had a nice caprese salad and a wonderful pizza. Recommended wine was average.

The best pizza in Lisbon! Friendly and cosy with one of the best restaurant teams in town. Feel at home enjoy a tasty pizza but also try the starters like the burrata or the saltimbocca. Excellent.

It's easy: just in front of Santa Apollonia metro and railway station, but beware, there's no sign at all. The place is very little and the queue could be frustrating, but it's worth: probably the closest thing to an italian pizza you can find in Lisboa. Nice idea to call for the waiter: switch on a lamp bulb hanging on... More

After almost two weeks in Portugal we finally found a good pizza place! As other reviewers mentioned, it is not so easy to find it and it is a busy place, so come earlier! We came around 7:30 pm and asked for an outside table. About 10 min wait and we were seated. But in another 10 min the line... More

We tried to visit Casanova on our second night in Lisbon and arrived at around 20:30, only to find the queue out the door! We came back on our final night around 19:00 and were relieved to be seated straight away, but only about 15 mins after we had sat down the queue was beginning to build up. So get... More

Wow ! Talk about a great, fresh, home style Italian meal. This place was hard to find, we almost gave up, but were very happy we persisted. Small little place the locals know about. Fresh, fresh, fresh. If you want Italian in Lisbon, go to this place.

This is out of discussion a popular place - people were lined up waiting for a table for >½ hour. The place is difficult to find, you need to know where it is as you enter through an anonomus door through the kitchen without the normal signs or menucards. We found Cassanova during our 2nd attempt. The place is smart... More

I loved the food, but it was a little bit expensive. I thought Lisbon was cheaper but it was fine for the pizzas. Normally the place have cues, but they go fast if you don't expect to get luch/dinner outside.
