Being family owned, you can expect authentic dishes in a no frills and unpretentious setting. Cure those hunger pangs with either a full-course Italian meal or classic pizzas. Go for the Siciliana or Romana and don't leave without trying the Lasagne Bolognese. The traditional desserts add a finesse to the whole experience which is sure to be nothing less than memorable.
Be prepared to get floored by the dozens of choices of pizzas, each with melting cheese, crisp vegetables and juicy bread at Pizza Da Mimmo. This pizzeria is a rage among the locals who can be found sitting at the crowded tables, talking and exchanging stories amidst tasty bites. The wine list is a good accompaniment and adds to great times here. Do not miss out on the Pizza Quattro Formaggi with four varieties of finger-licking cheese and the Pizza Pepperoni with sumptuous bits of pork.
Bringing flavors from Napes to Oslo, Villa Paradiso serves some of the best pizza in town. You are treated to authentic Italian pies prepared in wood-fired ovens, and the piping-hot slices are bursting with flavor. House specialties include the Ligure 159 (tomatoes, anchovies, mozzarella, squash and pesto); Araba 165 (eggplant, pecorino, salsiccia, tomatoes and breadcrumbs with parsley and garlic); and Vesuvio 169 (rocket, buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, oregano and garlic). You can enjoy a hearty breakfast any time between 8a and 4p. The restaurant includes a picturesque outdoor seating area.
This homegrown chain is best known for its thin crust pizzas and is a great place to stop by for a quick bite. For locals its the favorite take-away place in the neighborhood with fast service and good value for money. But dining in is also a good option, given you are not mindful of the decor or the ambiance; simple and elemental, the decor does not do much since all the value goes on the plate. And anyway tantalizingly cheesy pizzas will steal your attention from everything else. Give it a shot!
