Genuine, pleasant and laid back style. Delicious pizzas. Friendly staff and quick service. We stayed 10 nights in Ajaccio, and on three out of those we chose La Papacionu.

Me & my BF arrived in Ajaccio & found this place on Google. Called to make a reservation & earliest one was at 10:30pm...so we took it...totally worth it. I took the burrata pizza & him a calzone. The pizza was super thin with so much flavor. & the burrata...out of this world. Definitely go if you have tbt chance!

Yes, it is "just pizza" - but it was also some of the best pizza I've ever had, anywhere. So SO good. And compared to some of the sky-high prices at the 'fancier' restaurants we went to during this trip, this was a welcome respite!! They also had their own ice cold rose wine served by the carafe and a... More

We tried to drop in but it was fully booked. Reserved table the evening after. The pizza was amazing. The place is busy but very nice. We have rebooked.

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident. Busy. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff - great service. But most importantly, great pizzas. Thin, crisp with very high quality ingredients. One of the best pizzas ever. A must visit!

Only opened on spring and summer this restaurant is a real legend in town. So legendary that the owner opened the "winter PAPACIONU" in Paris 2 or 3 years ago. In summer an early booking is advised unless you don't mind to eat around 11.30PM Great address don't miss it

Very nice outdoor restaurant serving one of the best pizza i've ever had. Fresh and local products, correct prices. The desserts were just ok and the staff very distant. They know the worth of the place so they don't do any effort to satisfy the customers.

This a the best pizza I have ever had (even in Italy). Try the Papacionu one if you love cheese and pine nuts! The dough is absolutely fantastic. The service is very informal but you need to book a table as it's very busy.
