The 8 Best Pizza Restaurants In Hanoi are waiting for you!
Don’t judge us. We know the food in Vietnam is amazing, but that didn’t stop us from trying to find out where the best pizza in Hanoi are too.
The fact is that not every single traveller wants to eat local every single meal, and we reckon pizzas are a popular choice for most, so we did some digging and spoke to a few Vietnamese friends to help us put together this list.
There aren’t a lot of options available compared to other big cities, so if you don’t want to spend lots of time trawling the web to find where to eat pizzas in Hanoi, read on and add one of these places to your Hanoi itinerary!

1. Crust Pizzaria
We have one of the same name in Singapore (but not related to this), and it used to be our favourite hangout place with our friends until they closed and moved.
They left us with fond memories and the food was pretty delicious too, just like this Crust in Hanoi.
It seems they have a few branches here in Hanoi, but the one we know of is in the West Lake area. The exterior looks quite cute, like a small shack of sorts and inside the restaurant, you will find very basic and simple furnishing.
While that won’t impress people, the food certainly does. The selling point is the dough, which has been proofed for 72 hours before it makes it to the chopping board. This ensures that the dough has time to develop its flavours, and it shows in the final product.
The flavors contain the usual suspects like pepperoni and parma ham, but you should try out the Moroccan and Chicken one. All their pizzas comes with a special in house chili sauce that’s excellent.
Pizzas from 119,000 VND.
Address: Số 3 Ngõ 12 – Đặng Thai Mai, Quảng An, Tây Hồ, Hà Nội, Vietnam
2. La Bodega
We love a good wood fired pizza. The flavours and charring is something regular ovens cannot achieve.
Here at La Bodega, you will find one such owner who has set up his business using a brick wood fired oven right in his backyard.
The story behind how the Frenchman Jeremie started the business is interesting, and his food is receiving rave reviews from pizza lovers across the capital.
Once you step inside the property, which is located across the Red River in the Long Bien district, you will find an unfamiliar sight in Hanoi. The entire place gives off a European garden vibe, complete with wooden tables and benches.
Its location among the village makes it quiet and quaint, perfect for a nice evening out with friends.
The pizza is the star of the show here. Good old margarita is a must, and you can really experiment with the flavours if you have a group. Besides pizza, they do serve some excellent main courses too, which are switched up regularly.
Come in the evenings if you want to enjoy your meal with live music! Local talents frequently perform here. Check their facebook page for more info.
A word of advice, make sure you have transport arranged, especially at night. This is not in the city but rather a quiet village just outside of the city.
Pizzas from 140,000 VND.
Address: Khu sinh thái vườn đào, Ngõ 56, ngách 139 phố Thạch Cầu Quận Long Biên, Hanoi, Vietnam
3. Cowboy Jacks
This American style diner has been in Hanoi for a few years now and opened up a few branches subsequently, showing that they have somehow found the recipe for success.
As far as the food goes, they are typical of what you would expect to find in an establishment like this, such as ribs, steaks, sausages and seafood. But the pizza is very unique, especially in this part of the world, as they serve Chicago deep dish style pizza!
In case you are not sure what it is, deep dish is basically what the name suggests. The pizza resembles more like a pie, making it “deeper” than what a regular pizza looks like.
They are usually stacked with cheese at the bottom instead of on top, and filled with sausage and sauce. If you haven’t tried one before, please don’t miss out on the chance.
Pizzas from 199,000 VND.
Address: Tòa nhà 17T4 Hoàng Đạo Thúy, Nhân Chính, Thanh Xuân, Hà Nội, Vietnam
4. Pizza Company
Hailing from its neighbour Thailand, The Pizza Company is a well established chain which has been really creative with the types of pizzas they offer.
One look at the puff selection might have you sniggering, but they taste a lot better than they look, which by the way is a pretty typical shape known to Southeast Asians.
As a well oiled machine, you can expect to have your food served quick here, plus the service staff is well trained, adding to the comfortable interior which makes your visit a pleasant one.
The Pizza Company is most suitable if you want a quick fix and is searching for budget and convenience, since they have several outlets located around the city.
We wouldn’t say they have excellent pizzas, but if you are there, consider the Chicken Trio. It packs a nice amount of heat, very much unlike the usual selections.
Pizzas from 99,000 VND.
Address: Check website.
5. Pizza Belga
Belga is a real hidden gem for most.
It is located near the West Lake, but not on the waterfront, which leads to it often being overlooked. That would be a mistake though, as Belga serves up some of the best pizzas in Hanoi bar none.
The high accolades stems from the fact that they stick to Italian tradition and cooks their pies in wood fired ovens, which elevates their flavor profiles and gives it a nice char for texture.
Service is excellent and attentive, as the staff is well trained and can converse in English comfortably.
The cozy interior is inviting and makes you want to linger, and there are no large crowds here, making it perfect for an intimate gathering with your travel group.
The food is as good as they come, and you should not miss out one of the Chef’s Specials. They are delicious! And remember to pair your pizza with a craft beer. There’s a wide selection on offer.
Pizzas from 180,000 VND.
Address: 225 Âu Cơ, Quảng An, Tây Hồ, Hà Nội, Vietnam
6. Capricciosa Pizza
Occupying a shop front in Vincom Center, Hanoi’s largest shopping mall is Capricciosa.
While the name suggests it should be an authentic Italian house, you might be a little disappointed that isn’t entirely.
The setting is modern, modest and comfortable, and makes for a good place to take a break while shopping in this large mall.
As it is owned by a large group that manages several restaurants, you can expect a certain high quality standard in what they offer, at a pretty reasonable price.
The pizzas are well made – light and fluffy so you don’t feel like you are just eating a whole lot of bread. Capricciossa is not afraid to mix up the menu too, and you will find local influenced dishes such as the chicken noodles with chips among the Italian classics.
Pizzas from 149,000 VND.
Address: Tầng 5 Vincom, 191 Bà Triệu, Lê Đại Hành, Hai Bà Trưng, Hà Nội, Vietnam
7. Pizza 4P’s
4P’s is pretty big in Vietnam, with over a dozen outlets scattered across Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Da Nang and Nha Trang.
That said, you might think they are probably like one of the big chain restaurants, but that is simply not accurate. What 4P’s have done is exceptional, as each outlet has a distinct yet familiar look.
Think slick, modern designs with updated wooden furniture, unlike the big brands that goes for budget friendly plastic and MDF table tops.
Food wise, 4P’s have carved out a niche by offering Japanese Italian style pizzas, thanks to its Japanese founder. They are not afraid to try out new flavours too. A look at their extensive menu gives you a better insight.
4P’s is guided by a Japanese principle, Omotenashi, which means hospitality from the heart, and it shows in the attitudes of their staff. This should be one of your top considerations if you are going out for pizza in Hanoi.
Pizzas from 150,000 VND.
Address: Check website
8. NYC Pizza
Another pizza outlet that is trying out something different and succeeding at it is NYC Pizza.
Just as its name suggests, New York style pizza is the name of the game here.
If deep dish had a non identical twin, it has to be the New York. Flat, wide and super cheesy, you typically eat these by folding them in half, rather than a fork and knife.
Classics like pepperoni comes to mind and NYC Pizza does not disappoint.
The ambience of the restaurant as well as the food is as close to the Big Apple you can get in Hanoi Old Quarter.
Prices are on the high side here, but they are huge and can serve a few of you and your friends, no problemo.
If you prefer to try out more flavours, get your pizzas in slices instead.
Pizzas from 49,000 VND per slice
Address: 63 Phố Mã Mây, Hàng Buồm, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 10000, Vietnam
Best Pizzas in Hanoi Vietnam: Which one are you visiting?
There are several other good pizza restaurants to try out, but we did not have a chance to review them all. Here are some that you should consider too:
- Pizza Full House
- Mamma Mia
- Luna D’Autunno
Beyond these, you can also find some big name brands in Hanoi, but we typically avoid them. You kind of know what to expect and they are generally pretty boring!
- Pizza Hut
All the pizza shops mentioned here are unique in their own way, and each of them would leave a a good experience for you and your group, no doubt.
If we had to give them some sort of ranking, here’s what it would look like:
- Best budget friendly pizza – Crust Pizzaria
- Best tasting pizza – La Bodega and Pizza Belga
- Best overall value – Pizza 4P’s
So there you go, hopefully you will have a great time trying out one of these bad boys. Remember to check out this post of the best brunch places in Hanoi too.
