Try to avoid western food in non-western countries, but this is the best pizza I've ever had! Make sure to call ahead so they'll open for you if closed..

We always stop in on our way from Karatu to Arusha or the return trip. It's delicious and fresh. They have great pizza, so great that in 6 years we've never tried any of the pasta dishes but I'm sure they are equally as delicious. We just can't get enough of the pizza.

After looking for this place in Arusha we finally found out that is was really in Mto Wa Mbu about 2 hours bus ride from Arusha. It is a bit out of town to the east, about 30 mins walking from the market just after Twiga Campsite. Amazing pizzas at prices around 15-20.000 tsh. We didn't way long for our... More

Just outside Mtowambu is a fantastic wood-fired thin crust pizza place with excellent pizza. The owner is a friendly helpful guy and the food is great.

If you find yourself on the road between Arusha and Serengeti/Ngorongoro this is a good place to stop for a good meal. There are more than a dozen styles of pizza on the menu. They make them with thin crust. We ate here several nights running during a stay at the nearby Twiga Lodge and Campsite. I recommend dining in... More

If you are on your way back from the northern safari circuit and you want an easy, tasty lunch to tide you over until Arusha, this is a great option. Run by a real Tanzanian "Mzee" who learned his craft in a restaurant in Arusha, the pizzas are classic thin crust, interesting choice of toppings and baked in a genuine... More
