Surprisingly good pizza

We came here for lunch after nearly two weeks of rice, potatoes and cauliflower. I guess we didn't have high expectations but it was surprisingly delicious. The base was particularly good. We ordered chicken, tuna and chilli chicken. All were really nice. The coffees (lattes) were reasonable... read more

We landed up at Cafe Italia after a long day of sight seeing and a visit to the General Post Office. The restaurant is right opposite the General Post Office on the first floor. There is wifi available. We ordered a Spicy Ham Pizza and a Chicken Sausage Pizza and some coffee. The pizzas were good, though the time taken... More

Visited for evening snacks. The staff is very friendly. The chocolate coffee we ordered were very delicious and prepared with lot of effort. Appreciate the hard work they put in making delicate designs on the coffee which sure takes a lot of effort.

Free Wi-Fi and nice view on the road. We prefer however Seasons for the Pizza's and Pastas in Thimphu as their food just tastes better. However, Seasons is closed on Monday (so you could go to Upstairs for Pizza and Pasta on Monday, which is as good but offers better views from their outside balcony).

The restaurant looks nice from outside, but the food, especially the Pizza, is terrible. They don't have a proper Pizza oven and thus the Pizza is cooked only from one side.

The pizza was up to international standard, the service quick and friendly and the views over the mountains very restful. The space is also tastefully decorated - A very good place to relax and enjoy a good wholesome meal.

I asked for an all veg mushroom pizza but what was brought had meat toppings (I'm a vegetarian) and no apology whatsoever was given. I had to order another veg pizza (this time I clearly had to say NO MEAT TOPPINGS, NO MEAT AT ALL) and pay for the non-veg as well. I expected a lot when I first saw... More
