Without a doubt our number 1 place. This stylish Nørrebro eatery ran by master chef Mr Christian Puglisi is simply amazing. The charcuterie is made in-house from some of Denmark’s finest swine, the cheese are of course homemade and the dough is just unbelievable good. Once you have tried the pizza’s from Bæst, it will be hard to settle for the average pizza place near your apartment.
Forno A Legna
Perhaps the most popular – and for good reason – pizza place in Frederiksberg. This small, but comfy pizza place in the busy street of Falkoner Alle is as good as it get and is run by local Italians whos energy will only make you feel as you were in a local pizza place in Naples. Try their white pizzas – pizza bianco – without tomato sauce, if you want to try something different than your usual.
La Vecchia Signora
This place, located in the heart of Copenhagen, serves as a traditional Italian restaurant with pastas and veal with gorgonzola, but has also build with an original stone oven for pizzas which pops out some of the most amazing pizzas in Copenhagen. The vibe is true Italy and the waiters will only emphasize this feeling. Go here after work this summer and enjoy one of Copenhagen’s most authentic Italian restaurants.
Gorm might not be Italian – he is actually from the lovely, small and and sunny Island of Bornholm – but he sure knows how to make some of the most impressive pizzas in Copenhagen. With a very thin, but crisp dough with carefully sourced ingredient on top, you will not be disappointed here. What started to be just one place is now a full chain of restaurant. Luckily, the quality haven’t dropped due to this. Definitely worth a visit!
