Best Pizza in Cebu

Best Pizza in Cebu

La Bella Napoli is our humble opinion is the best pizza in Cebu. It was also awarded the prized ‘Sun Star award for “Best Pizza in Cebu”. Now that is saying something, if you know anything about the quality of the competition in Cebu. La Bella, makes pizzas using traditional Italian methods; Napoli to be precise. Think: thin crust, very little toppings and that wonderful balance between crust and chewy dough.

With three branches in Cebu each person may have their favorite branch. Mine is of course the branch at SDR Apartments. Super convenient.  A great place to hang out ‘al-fresco’ or in the air-conditioned restaurant and enjoy Cebu’s award-winning Pizza.  La Bella Pizza Mactan also has some very good value Italian red and white wines. For those that like a chilled beer, San Miguel products are available. My favourite is the San Mig. Super Dry. Similar in taste to a Japanese beer such as Kirin, the crispness goes very well with pizza.

Go say hi to La Bella Pizza and Bistro manager and personality Tony.  Tony along with his team will make you feel like you are at home.
