The 8 best pizzerias in Munich according to an Italian

Lifestyle / Tuesday, November 8th, 2022

You can read this article in Italian here and in German here.

“Munich is Italy’s northernmost city”– you may or may not have heard this common saying. The reason? Bavarians love to vacation in northern Italy (especially in South Tyrol and Lake Garda, or should I say “Gardasee” in German), which is why so many of them speak Italian and love Italian culture and cuisine. Most importantly: so many Italians work and live in Munich because of the higher salaries and proximity to Italy. 

That’s why buying Italian products in Munich is actually pretty easy, as well as finding quality Italian restaurants. In this article, I’ll tell you about some great pizzerias for the best pizza in Munich.

Award winning pizza from 60 Secondi 

Let’s start with a bang: needless to say 60 Secondi is one of the pizzerias with the best pizza in Munich, winning 22nd best pizzeria in all of Europe according to the prestigious 50 Top Pizza award. The place is very simple with plastic chairs and an open oven, and the service is fast and friendly. And the pizza? Amazing.

I tried both takeout and dining in with 60 Secondi, and both times I found it to be delicious Neapolitan-style pizza with quality toppings. Approved with flying colors.

  • Pizza margherita 9,50€
  • Pizza with buffalo mozzarella 12,50€
  • Most expensive pizza 18€ (white pizza with fiordilatte, burrata, bresaola, parmesan shavings, arugula and cherry tomatoes)

Mozzamo: 3 locations, one great pizza

Open oven, top ingredients and a focus on mozzarella and cheese in general. Mozzamo has four locations: Romanplatz, Thalkirchen, Schwabing and Pasing. I’ve been to the first three and in both I had a very good time and some of the best pizza in Munich. Romanplatz and Thalkirchen have more of an industrial chic look and are suitable for families as well, while the new restaurant in Schwabing targets younger people in a cool location that mix Renaissance beauty and neon art.

Pizza is extremely good in all Mozzamos, but if I had to choose I would say the Thalkirchen one is my favourite (but location wise, I prefer Schwabing).

Soul Kitchen: the coolest pizza in town

If you ask any 25- to 35-year-old person in Munich to go for a pizza and they are sure to propose “Soul Kitchen?”. This place is the place to be for a night out with friends, and it’s easy to see why: some of the best pizza in Munich, industrial chic décor, dim lighting, an easy area to get to and close to the Isar River and the young neighborhood of Glockenbach. The specialty here is truffle pizza (and you can totally smell it when you enter the place).

Please note Soul Kitchen offers not only traditional pizza flavors, but also modern and extravagant pairings eg: tikka masala and sweet potatoes.

Looking for a trendy pizzeria? Try Nineofive

If the first three pizzerias I mentioned have a distinctly Italian feel, Nineofive is decidedly more international and young, since more students than young adults or families frequent the pizzeria. I would recommend this pizzeria, but I would say it is a bit noisy and with different pizzas than usual (sometimes with really, really strange pairings). 

  • Pizza margherita 10.50€
  • Pizza with buffalo mozzarella 13€
  • Most expensive pizza 16€ (tomato, Parma ham, flakes of 24-month parmesan, fiordilatte)
