6. Ciao Bella Pizza

Pizzeria, Italian

With classic pizzas and premium pies, Ciao Bella Pizza is what Italian fare dreams are made of, and it all started in Sicily in 1994 with Alfonso Farruggia. The military man had such passion for Sicilian pizzas that he decided to learn how to make them. This passion took him through Italy to Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. There he perfected his pizza with a wood-fired oven and brought the quality creation first to Venezuela before making his way to Panama. Ciao Bella Pizza is in San Francisco with the history, experience, taste and quality of genuine Italian pizza.
