The best pizza we've had

Possibly the best pizza we've had anywhere. We were here two years ago, and remembered it as such, and they didn't disappoint when we returned. The homemade ice-tea is wonderful as well. You can have a view over the river. For pizza in Lisbon they're a bit expensive (about 9-14 euro for a pizza... read more

Casanova is just opposite Santa Apolonia train station on river's edge. Popular spot not accepting reservations which invariably leads onto exasperating queue waiting. Service is mediocre but you go there for the pizza and all is worth. Strongly recommend the Diavola which as the name suggests is spicy with a topping of hot salame and chilli flakes. The crust is...

A nice cozy place with a wide variety of pizza and pasta. The food is great, for a reasonable (but not that "casual") price, and the service is pretty fast. However, the staff is not specially nice; not that they are bad, they're just not as friendly as the place deserves. Also, the place gets easily crowded and it becomes... More

Superb location by the river, very good italian food, and almost direct access by "Metro" (St. Apolonia, one end of Blue Line) There, choose the protected outdoor terrace, along the river Tagus. Must arrive early !!! [12:30 for lunch, or 19:30 to dinner], to avoid long queues.

This was delicious pizza. Calzones looked amazing. Fresh ingredients. Fast. Definitely a local hot place for lunch. A bit difficult to find but totally worth getting lost a bit.

Not an easy place to find but well worth the expedition. Santa Apolonia METRO stop and cross the street towards the water to the strip plaza and look for the kitchen in a big window (cant miss it). Keep in mind you enter through a tunnel that oversees the kitchen. Don't be affraid, it will worth it. River view, quick... More

Any restaurant with a wood fired pizza oven always gets my vote and Casanova was worth finding. Take the metro to Santa Apolonia and cross the road outside the station. There are a row of shops facing the river and that's where you will find it. We were able to sit outside even though it was November. The pizzas were... More

We had taken the ferry from Cais do Sodré to Montijo and back to get out on the water one day and then were headed up to the Museu Nacional do Azulejo. Pizzeria Casanova had been recommended to us as having the "best pizza in Lisbon" so, wanting something different than the amazingly good seafood, grilled steaks and simple Portuguese... More

Not an easy place to find but well worth the expedition. Located along the water and seating outside in good weather, this pizza spot has become a popular spot. We were told to expect a line but we got there early enough and sat outside with a heat lamp over our table. The waiter was wonderful and sweet. Thoroughly enjoyed... More

Excellent pizza! Thin, crispy, quick! Once we turned on our red light and ordered we had a 5-7 minute wait for our 4 different pizzas. All exceptional. Salad, 4 pizzas, Liter of wine 68€ can't beat it!!

Staying in Graca & Sao Vicente

Neighborhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
