Berberé promises its guests a very special pizza experience. Pizzas are made using seasonal ingredients and seven different types of flour, then the pastry has to undergo a slow-ripening process which can last up to 48 hours. The result is a unique, mouth-watering taste. The place is in the heart of the university area, so you won’t be short of company on Fridays and Saturdays in particular.

Their name couldn’t describe them better. A truly artistic place for any pizza lover. Interestingly, you pay by the weight of your pizza, so you can try many of the appealing offerings. The best thing here is that as soon as the pizza is taken out of the oven, it is brought straight over and you can tuck in while it is still piping hot. This means that the pastry is as perfectly crunchy as the toppings are well-flavored, in truth, you will probably end up trying several at the same time!
