Where To Eat Pizza In Dublin, According To A Chef

We've done the hard work, so you don't have to.
Where to get the best pizza in Dublin.

Dublin has really upped its pizza game in the past few years, with great pizzerias now located all across the city. 

This list was so hard for us to write, as there are so many that we love to drop into for a slice.

However, after much discussion, we finally whittled it down to the very best. You're welcome. 

Pi, George's Street

We obviously couldn't create a list about the best pizzas in Dublin without including Pi which, since opening, last year, has been going from strength to strength.

If you ever saw the queues outside and thought it wasn't worth the wait, then you need to get to Pi and try it out right now; you won't regret it. 

Paulie's Pizza, Upper Grand Canal Street 

Paulie's Pizza is a Dublin classic, offering some of the most delicious pizzas we've ever eaten. Paulie's uses top-class ingredients to make a wide array of inventive, tasty pizzas that will keep you coming back for more. 

 Sano, Exchange Street, Temple Bar

Sano is one of the capital's best-kept secrets, offering seriously good pizza at an extremely reasonable price point. We love the variety of toppings available at Sano, plus the atmosphere is always really good at this spot, so you'll definitely enjoy your visit.

Dublin Pizza Company, Aungier Street

Without a doubt, Dublin Pizza Company sells some of the best pizza in Dublin.

We love that their monthly special is so innovative, as well as delicious, and the fact that this company always tries to highlight Irish ingredients is a big win in our book.

Manifesto, Rathmines Road Lower

Manifesto in Rathmines offers amazing pizza, as well as superb gluten-free options, which is why we definitely had to include it on our list of the best places for pizza in Dublin. The flavours here are always spot on and we love that our coeliac friends can enjoy a pizza that's just as good as ours when we visit Manifesto. 

 Rita's, Ranelagh

One of the newer kids on the block, Rita's had queues down the street when it first opened and once you try it, it's not hard to understand why.

The pizza is great and we love the level of leopard spots on the crust, so it's a perfect spot to grab a pint and a slice with friends. 

Caffe Amore, South Great George's Street

Caffe Amore is a classic spot for pizza in Dublin with friendly staff, delicious toppings and a crispy base. The location is really central and busy, so it's a great spot to drop into when you're out and about in the city. 

Osteria Lucio, Clanwilliam Terrace, Grand Canal Quay

Co-owned by Michelin-starred chef Ross Lewis, you're basically guaranteed a good pizza when you visit Osteria Lucio. The crust here is some of the crispest in Dublin and we love the array of delicious and innovative toppings available. 

Forno 500º, Dame Street

Forno 500º is the only place for pizza in Dublin that has been accredited by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napolitana (AVPN), meaning it offers truly authentic Neapolitan-style pizza in the city.

These gorgeous pizzas are always great and you can really taste the quality of the sourdough-style crust. 

Da Mimmo, North Strand

Da Mimmo is a gorgeous little family-run restaurant that serves up some seriously high-quality pizza. If you're looking for somewhere to visit on the Northside, then this is the spot to visit. While all their pizzas are delicious, we're particularly fond of their Margherita.

Coke Lane Pizza At Lucky's, Meath Street

This wood-fired pizza joint started as a pop-up but Coke Lane has now found a permanent home at Lucky's on Meath Street.

The flavours here are really inventive and we love their €13 pizza and pint deal.

Gaillot et Grey, Clanbrassil Street Lower

Well-known for its amazing bread, Gaillot et Grey also serves up some of the best pizza in Dublin. The pizzas are made in a French style, using French cheeses in place of classic Italian-style ones.

The location is spot on too, as Clanbrassil Street is full of great restaurants and bars, so be sure to go for a wander while you're in the area.
