The Best Pizza in Viterbo for Every Occasion
By Sammy Browne USAC Student
If there’s one thing Italy is best known for it’s the pizza. All restaurants claim that they have the best and today I set out with a hopeful heart and empty stomach to see which restaurant in Viterbo has the best pizza. With help from trip advisors reviews and word of mouth I settled on five different restaurants all with unique versions of a margherita pizza.
The first restaurant I went to was called La Sosta Del Suffragio. It had a clean modern look with its white walls and a fully stocked bar. The staff was friendly and the chef made my pizza in 7 minutes. For only €5 you get a pizza that is so big it has to be folded into the box so it’s safe to say you’re getting your moneys worth. The cheese and sauce are both very tasty but what makes this place special is it’s extremely thin crust. This restaurant is perfect if you like thin crust or are looking to share a pizza.
The second restaurant I visited was called Ghost Chili. This place has many options from buffalo cheese and veggie pizza to prosciutto and fig pizza. For €1,88 I was able to get my pizza immediately. This place is perfect for those looking for interesting combos of pizza on the go. The staff there are extremely friendly and the restaurant is modern and hip. This restaurant is perfect if you are craving pizza but don’t have time to sit down at a restaurant.
The third place I visited was called O’Sarracino. This place undeniably had the best atmosphere out of them all. From the Fútbol playing on the tv to the half white half stone walls it was clean but cozy. It had the most expensive pizza on the list at €6 however it had the best cheese to sauce ratio, with a good layer of crust on the bottom leading up to a thick crust to hold onto while eating at the end. This restaurant is perfect if you want to catch up with friends all while having an amazing personal pizza.
The fourth place I visited was called Il Labirinto. It had beautiful artwork and original stone lining the walls. The rooms were partially closed off with a few tables per room offering a more private dining experience. The €5 pizza came in 4 minutes and was the juiciest out of them all. This restaurant is perfect is you are all about the cheese and want a fast pizza with a private dining experience.
The fifth and final place I went to was called Anema e Core. This local family owned restaurant felt the most authentically Italian with stone and wood all through the restaurant. The back wall featured a stone oven and I got to see the chef make and then bake my pizza. For €5 the family focused atmosphere not to mention the best marinara sauce made it worth it. This restaurant is perfect if you want a pizza made by a Italian family run restaurant and care about the sauce on your pizza.
All the pizzerias I visited tonight all had a great atmosphere and equally different but delicious pizza it was impossible to pick just one pizza as the clear winner of everything. I can confidently say my personal favorite was O’Sarracino but I could easily see myself re-visiting all of these depending on whither I’m craving thin crust, amazing sauce, or overall experience.
