“Pizza gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

This pizzaria is a gem that is a must-visit, when you are in Quebec City. It is not located directly in the centre but it is worth the extra walk. They serve very special and very delicious pizzas with a very tasty crust of melted cheese. It is like nothing we have tried elsewhere. As an additional bonus, the staff is very nice. Would certainly go there again,

“Amazing pizza, amazing staff! Great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

I love pizzas and beer together. I have tried pizzas all over the world including Italy of course. The unique style of Marco (the chef and owner) is just wordless. You should really go there and try them! And make your own opinion.
During the world cup I visited many bars and restaurants, and the beer was just regular cold. For the very first time, the beer in Pizzaio was finally Cold! In a hot day. Bravo to La Pizzaio for that great meal. And prices are so reasonable!

“Superb Dining Experience - Pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

We (a family of four) had a fantastic experience at La Pizzaio. The owner held our reservation even though we were 15 minutes late. That was a great start. We sat inside. It was cozy and pleasent. The owner served us and was very attentive to our needs including translation. He was personable and on his game for the entire time we were there. We had four pizzas, all carefully prepared and delicious. This was upscale, quality pizza, not fast food. We started with homemade soup which was fantastic. Enjoyed a nice glass of wine. Everyone enjoyed the experience and we strongly recommend it. Convenient to Le Château and we recommend stopping by the nearby train station. Neat building.

“Unique pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We found this pizzaria through trip advisor and I have to say it was worth the walk to get there through the strrets of Old Quebec! The owners were so warm and welcoming, offering red and white wine, tasty treats from the kitchen before our pizzas came out of the oven. The most unusual thing about this pizza is an incredibly thin crust and the way the cheese melts well beyond the crust edges. So good! Great for lunch.

“Unbelievable experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

What can I say.... Incredible!
The crust was like no other. Paper thin with the cheese melted perfectly. Fresh ingredients.

Other highlights include the imaginative creme brulé with mars!

Excellent experience. A must in Quebec City!
