The nr. 1 pizza in Oslo?

Of all the pizza places I've been too in Oslo, Lofthus Samvirkerlag delivered the best pizza by far. You can eat in the restaurant or order to take away. They can "half cook" the pizza so you can finish it in your own stove for the freshest and best quality. The pizzas is made in authentic wood... read more

I have been there a few times. Last time earlier this week. I am now trying to find the best pizza place in Oslo, and this is by far the best one till now. This is nothing like a "normal" pizza place. They have a white and a red menu, where the differences are the color and the content of... More

Terrible service, the worst I've experienced. The waiter forgot to order our food so we waited 1.5 hours for 4 basic pizzas. The waiter only realised his mistake when we asked if our food would be coming shortly. They 'don't offer discounts', so we were given a loaf of bread... A loaf of bread that they would struggle to sell... More

We arrived first together with 3 other tables. After being given a dirty table, with still glasses and coffie cups from the last serving, we waited for them to clean it up. They did not! After 5 min I even approched the waiters, and they said they would take it, but they did not. After all the other 3 tables... More

I live close by and I order take out from Lofthus quite often. The pizzas are excellent, I particularly recommend the reindeer and the porcini. It can be quite busy, especially in the weekends, so booking a table in advance is recommended.

I come here as a regular whenever I want a relaxing yet vibrant atmosphere away from the Swedish oriented impersonal hustle-bustle found so many other places in this city. The pizza is Oslo's best, no doubt, and the wine list has some very decent bottles on it as well as good budget options. Knowledgable and very nice staff that always... More

Great pizza in Sandaker/Torshov. Expensive. But that is Norway. I love the Steinsopp pizza. Always full so come early.

Went here after reading good reviews about the pizzas. The pizza was as good as the service was bad. One of the waiters told me after I had to ask for the bill and waiting 10 mins to pay that they have problems outdoor. Nobody came to ask if we wanted more drinks or how the food was. How are...

Last time the pizza was good this time it was great. I think this is the best pizza Oslo has for now. Thin, crispy yet succulent pizza crust with a white sauce that taste so complex with red onion and fennel salami on top. One of the best pizzas i have ever tasted. Service also very good and friendly and... More

You should go here for one of the best pizzas in Oslo, no kidding. Small, cosy local place which caters for the neighborhood. They only serve pizza! Red or white sauce, you choose. Crisp and nice. My favorite: reindeer with pomegranate. A bit out of town, so best if you drive (although parking is tricky).
