The best pizza’s in Havana we reckon at 5 Esquinas Trattoria Restaurant in Old Havana. Real pizza bases are used with excellent toppings and cheap too. Sit out in the cobblestone street at 5 Esquinas Trattoria.
We’ve tried many pizza’s all over Havana and written up none of them except this one as its the best and so good. Located down a very cute cobblestone alley way in Old Havana, with seating on the street or if you prefer in two small dining rooms. The staff at 5 Esquinas Trattoria are fast and efficent and speak very good English.
The menu is of course Italian and not too big or expensive, which is what we like. There are two restaurants very close together, don’t get caught out going to the wrong one, they both look quite similar.
On our first visit we tried the 5 Cheeses Pizza as it was recommended by the waiter as his favourite. To be honest it wasn’t our favourite at $8.55 CUC, which we shared between the two of us without going hungry.
Next visit was at lunch time, this time we ordered the “Sausages, Serrano Ham, Ham & Spanish Sausages” for $8.10 CUC. But we got them to add extra onion and peppers at $2 CUC each extra. Man, this was such a good pizza, thin crispy base, real tomatoe sauce and excellent toppings.
Best pizza in Havana by far and pretty cheap to considering one pizza is plenty for two people to share. Staff are very friendly, speak good English and efficient. Not a long wait on the pizza either. Perfecto!
