A selection of our favourite Montréal pizzerias

It seems like Montréal has been developing a love affair with all things pizza in the last couple of years. Parlour after parlour keep opening up and thriving. Whether you prefer Neapolitan, Roman, New York, Montréal or a very unique style to your pizza, below are some of our favourites organized by neighbourhood.


Fiorellino offers great Neapolitan-style pizza cooked in a wood burning oven.

Café Parvis
A unique decor, a hip and unpretentious ambiance, great coffee and delicious pizze, including a breakfast one for weekend brunch.

Neapolitan style pizza with a twist in the heart of downtown Montréal where you customize your pie from a variety of toppings available.

Enoteca Mozza Pizzeria

If you find yourself craving a pizza while walking around downtown Montréal, this dynamic spot is just what you’re looking for.

Piazza del Sogno

This newest addition to the downtown core emulates an Italian piazza with a café and a pizzeria serving authentic fare from Napoli.


Bottega Pizzeria
Bottega is a Little Italy favourite and serves great pasta dishes, gelato and of course, lovely, Napoletana-style pizza made in their famous, red-tiled, wood burning oven.

Pizzeria Gema
Try the classic 1889, the bitter and tangy Menina (my favourite) or go for the ever-surprising pizza of the month inspired by great culinary talents such a as local chefs and industry people.

San Gennaro
Owned by the same family as Bottega Pizzeria mentioned above, San Gennaro makes some of the best authentic Roman-style pizza in Montréal.

Pizzeria Magpie
The tin ceiling, the mosaic-covered wood-burning oven and the Mile End hipster clientele all contribute in making Magpie a great place to grab a delicious pie. Magpie just opened their second location in the Village.


The wine list, the mozzarella bar, the cutting-edge design and the great pizza cooked in a wood-burning oven are all good reasons to visit this beautiful Old Montréal spot.

BEVO Bar + Pizzeria

BEVO has one of the most beautiful terrasses in Old Montréal. The pizza is also delicious and cooked in a wood-burning oven. Try their specialty: a Nutella dessert pie!


FCO di Fiumicino
Authentic by the slice (al metro) Roman-style pizza is what FCO offers, along with some of the best gelato in Montréal.

Nolana Pizzeria

The dozen or so pizze–from the simple margherita to the more complex flavours of nduja, porchetta or octopus–are all outstanding and cooked in the wood-burning oven at the back of the beautifully designed space.


No 900
Located inside the Outremont Theater, this tiny space is reminiscent of an old Italian brasserie with its marble tables, tile work and brass accents. The pizzas are all fabulously delicious, including the breakfast ones served at brunch. No 900 is also a (very impressive) food truck so watch for it around town in season. Gluten free pizza available.


Prato Pizzeria
Prato has been around for a while and is well loved by many Montrealers. Prato’s coal fired brick oven produces a great crust and the endless variety of toppings to which you can add extras is nice.


Pizzeria Geppetto

Geppetto serves about 20 varieties of pizze made from unbleached Canadian organic flour and cooked in a wood burning oven.


New York style pizza by the slice or by the pie is what this latest venture from the Campanelli team (whose meatball sandwich is on our best sandwich list) promises.

Industria Brasserie Italienne

A modern pizzeria and Italian brasserie, Industria offers a dozen pizza choices and a variety of sfizi (Italian tapas).


La Bête à pain
The meat and the four cheese by-the-(square)slice pizza are some of my favourites but double up on your order because you’re going to want to take some home.
