Pizza View is a new casual eatery at Parkview Green, serving up authentic Italian cuisine and artisanal pizzas. Opened in October 2015 the restaurant space offers a relaxed dining atmosphere. The kitchen, managed by Chef Marino D’Antonio and the team of Opera Bombana, serves delicious cuisine made with fresh quality ingredients at great value prices. The open kitchen, at the heart of the dining area, showcases the craftsmanship of pizza making.
The signature handmade pizza (RMB 48-128) uses dough that is crafted and fermented for 36 hours, using high-grade imported flour and yeast. The result is a light crust with a crisp exterior that is full of flavorful. It’s a travesty that this place fell at the first hurdle of the beijinger’s 2015 Pizza Cup. For me these pizzas are some of the best in the city, their toppings are streets ahead in terms of their freshness and quality.
The meat pizza came topped with a wonderful tangy yet sweet tomato sauce and plenty of mozzarella. Great tasting Parma ham, slices of salami and a scattering of herby sausage made this pie the clear favorite (RMB 128). The sausage pizza was topped with the same wonderfully robust sausage meat, grilled peppers, and sautéed mushrooms (RMB 78). Other varieties include the spicy diavolo, margherita, ham and cheese, and grilled vegetables with artichokes.
Cleanse your pizza palate with something delicious from the gelato bar. With a choice of homemade ice-creams combined with fresh fruits, Italian chocolates and nuts. It’s not just about pizza; they also serve a range of fresh salads, panini, soups, and desserts. Service is very good, and they cater well for young kids too. With high chairs, plastic cutlery and some of the best restrooms in Beijing are just across the mall. Pizza and a heated toilet seat, what more could you want after a hard days shopping.
