We were staying a five minute walk away at the Rey Apartments and needed a quick lunch before going on a Golden Circle Tour and this place was perfect. We shared a lovely large pizza, the service was quick and polite. Would recommend.

So I went to Look for a pizza place in Reykjavik, and believe me, pizza places in Reykjavik are hard to find! But after all my hard work of looking for one, we found this! And this place is AMAZING! Best pizza in Iceland! I had a Calzone, which if you didn't know is basically a type of pizza but... More

Took out a few nice pizzas here to eat at 'home'. Waiting time was less than 20mins and the pizzas are nice and thin. They use a wood oven. Some interesting toppings!

This is better than your average pizza place-brick oven as well as "upscale" toppings like maple syrup. It was expensive (about 60 euro for 2 personal pizzas and 1 beer, but all of Reykjavik is expensive. Service was a bit slow and we had to wait for a table, but we went Friday night at 8pm-a busy time.

Great little oven fired pizzas for a reasonable price. Tried two different pizzas and both were fantastic. Would definitely go back.

For Iceland the prices aren't that bad (15$ for a 12" margherita) Large selection of pizzas, which is actually good (again for Iceland) Good crust however missing a bit of salt, nice tomato sauce and reasonable cheese, properly cooked You can get as well salads (3 choices) Free refill of sodas Nice staff and quick setvice

Would have loved to have one of the tables out front so you could do the ultimate people watching but people there looked very very relaxed! The place was packed so we sat upstairs which didn't have the same vibe. Pizzas are pretty tasty. The shrimp are a good size, has a smooth garlic sauce on top with fresh arugula.... More

Situated on the main pedestrian and shopping street, the quaint looking shop has ample seating inside. Lots of unique pizza options (think smoked fish, unusual vegetables and cream cheese - not on the same pizza). Tasty pizza and a nice atmosphere. There is table service until it gets busy, and then you have to go to the counter to order.... More

Decided to go for a wander from our hotel (Hilton) and came across this restaurant. Ordered a calzone each...very good! My colleague commented that this was the first meal he'd truly enjoyed whilst on this trip. Service was great, staff are friendly and helpful. This is a pizzeria with options.
