The best pizza places in Cape Town

Last updated: September 2021

If there’s one thing that Capetonians get passionate about, it’s pizza. Debates about who makes the best pizza rage on, but we’ve narrowed it down to the best pizza spots in town. Still, competition is fierce, so it’s probably best for you take a little cheesy tour and decide which is your favourite. Here they are, in no particular order.

Massimo’s in Hout Bay

Massimo’s is the place to go for real, authentic Italian pizza. Massimo and his wife, Tracy, run the show. The two source their ingredients from small local farms and stalls, and the restaurant has a warm, distinctly Italian ambience.


Da Vinci’s

Da Vinci’s operates two branches—in Kloof Street and in Harfield Village. They have indoor and street-side tables. The Verdi Pizza is topped with fresh tomato, pesto, feta, walnuts, avocado, and rocket, and has no mozzarella—which may sound sacrilegious… but trust us, it’s delicious.


Bin Rashied Pizza, various locations

Husband and wife duo Rashied and Zubeida run Bin Rashied. They opened the first branch in 1990, and they now have seven restaurants operating in Cape Town—which means they must be doing something right! They’re also strictly halal.


Ashley’s Family Restaurant in Goodwood

Ashley worked in the restaurant industry for years, before starting his own in 2007. Ashley’s has gone from strength to strength, serving families in the Northern Suburbs pizza, steaks, burgers, and ribs. There’s a kid’s play area too, and Ashley’s prides itself on being a great place for the whole family.

Bossa Social Cafe in Tygerfalls

Here’s another star of the North – Bossa situated on the Tygerfalls Waterfront. It’s a social vibe where they serve great cocktails and have a huge menu, so it’s a great choice if not all of your party wants pizza.


Narona in the City Bowl

Narona is one of the most vegetarian-friendly pizza spots in town, but their meaty pizzas are fantastic too. They operate an Observatory branch too. These guys claim to have both the best pizza and the best cheesecake in town. We better try it out to be sure.


Ferdinando’s Pizza in Obs

Ferdinando’s has gone from being run out of an apartment, to a secret kitchen at the back of a Kloof Street bar, to their very own spot in Observatory. But wherever they went, their fans followed, bearing testament to the quality of their delicious pizza. With an array of interesting topping combinations, ample vegetarian options, and of course their famous desert pizza (Nutella, fruit and roasted marshmallows), you’ll quickly find yourself becoming a regular.


Bruegels Pizza Studio in Mowbray

Breugels is all about fresh, wood-fired pizza served in a family-friendly setting. Guests get crayons and paper while they wait, and the walls are decorated with their masterpieces! The food is wholesome and they cater well for vegetarians. There are also fresh salads and homemade pastas, along with a fantastic wine list.


La Matta

If you are a fan of authentic Italian food or crave pizza’s like no other, look no further than La Matta!
