Undoubtedly, pizza is one of the most beloved dishes of locals, besides Russian cuisine. Whatever type of pizza you like, Rostov-On-Don has it. American with pineapples? Yeah! Classic quattro formaggi and margarita? Sure. Vegetarian? Of course! Here’s where to find the city’s finest pizza if you crave it immediately upon arrival to Rostov-On-Don.

1. Bellucci

Restaurant, Italian

The best Italian restaurant in the city? Yes, Walter Bisoffi knows better! He manages everything here and creates gastronomic masterpieces daily, weekly, and monthly. A famous Italian chef and cooking guru who has been working in Russia for nearly 13 years, he already knows how to operate with diners’ needs and wants in mind and to satisfy even the weirdest culinary caprice of a visitor. Bellucci features a great balance between food quality and price point, all the typical Italian courses are here, and it’s done exceptionally well. Choose your risotto, pasta, or pizza and you’ll discover that everything has been done perfectly and with considerable skill. The staff are super-friendly and authentic—they love what they do and you will feel the Italian spirit in the air. Ci vediamo presto!

2. Fartyk & Margarita

Restaurant, Italian

Fartyk & Margarita has a real Italian spirit, with fantastic coffee and even better pizza. Lots of Italian wines are on offer, as well as scamorza cheese, mozzarella, and burrata. Tutto buono e bello! Mixed with the vibe of New York, this is the perfect spot in the heart of Rostov-On-Don. And don’t forget to try the desserts, which come paired with specially prepared coffee. Plus there is a vast choice of tea—a drink Russians can’t live without.

3. Red Burger Bar

Bar, Restaurant, Pizzeria, Hungarian, Russian

While Red Burger Bar offers you a typical pizza, burger, and sandwich menu, it also provides you an opportunity to choose out of many options and even customize your course. The menu is simple, with pizza and burgers that build off standard ingredients.

4. Papa Rostov

Restaurant, Russian, Italian

This is a very traditional and cozy Russian restaurant and bar with private dining rooms and great Italian pizzas on offer. Papa Rostov offers you a vast champagne and cocktail choice, aperitifs, digestives, and local vodka matched with plates of oysters, imported cheeses with ham, and traditional Russian desserts. The price is more than affordable and is a good option for those who want to go to the bar right after dinner but are not ready to take a cab.

5. Sapore Italiano

Restaurant, Cafe, Italian

This is a restaurant is the real “la dolce vita” with typical Italian ingredients.
