Ask for the four seasons pizza

Amazing pizza, highly recommended. The place is a bit hard to find but the trip advisor map has it correct.

Wow, Great pizza (and we lived in Italy for 2 years), good beer, and very fair price. Great customer service and an excellent level of English (almost native - and we're English teachers). We will definitely come back next time we're in Seoul.

We ordered delivery before but eating at the restaurant is so much better. Fresh out of the oven. Mmmmmm~ The staff are friendly and met our needs whatever it was...more drinks, more napkins, and wrapping the leftovers in a to-go box. Prices aren't too high compared to any other pizza joint in Seoul. Nonetheless, the quality is worth it. Definitely... More

Really people - get out of your house and eat in. We all know a proper wood fired pizza only tastes good straight out the oven. Go for the preservative laden Pizza Hut if u want something good 30mins after its been cooked. We had a very authentic, nicely topped, crispy based, perfectly charred edge pizza here and loved every... More

We love this place ... Great pizza in a great location! We've tried a lot of different pizza places in Seoul --- this one pretty much tops our list + our kids go crazy for the cheese pizza ... that makes our choice even easier. We will definitely go there again!

I got sick of pizza school I think because of the corn on the cheese pizza... So we paid a good amount more to try this place. We ordered through Y-Not-take-out and it took about 45 minutes to an hour to get to us and when it did it was cold and doughy. My husband's was a cooked a little... More

My experience is based on delivery, not eating in, but the food is the same either way. We did not like this pizza at all. I'm not sure why everyone raves about it. We got two pizzas, Margherita and Capricciosa. The Capricciosa was so bad we would not even finish our first slices, and because we were hungry we grudgingly... More

I ate at the Pizza Peel after finally tracking it down to its hideout in a little alleyway in Itaewon, and really enjoyed my meal. The pizza was thin-crust, wood-fired, and with a nice balance of ingredients and flavors. The drinks menu offered wine and beers, as well as soft drinks, and all-in-all it was such a nice experience that... More

Staying in Itaewon

Neighborhood Profile
Itaewon
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
