The Italian House

This one kept coming up again and again among friends’ recommendations for the best pizza in town, despite the fact that it’s hidden out of the way and not nearly as snazzy as other addresses in town.

The Italian House is tucked down Street 312 on the right side as the road heads towards Sothearos. Not the easiest to find, and not the most salubrious of destinations either but, quite frankly, you’re not going to care once you get your hands on their food. The simplicity is actually very appealing, and it’s certainly not shabby, and the pizza is gorgeous. You can sit either out on the street, or inside in a small but comfortable air con room. We’re not sure how they do it, but the base is not like any other we’ve ever had. Almost like a flat, crispy on the edges crumpet, which soaks up plenty of tomato sauce and rich, rich olive oil, yet maintains its form. Prices range from $6.50 to $12, and the offerings are of the traditional variety. It goes without saying that our friends have extremely good taste.
