Two Irish spots ranked very highly in the top 50.
Two Irish pizzerias have landed coveted spots inside Europe’s 50 best pizza places.
Dough Bros in Galway and Cirillo’s restaurant in Dublin were both named in the 50TopPizza online guide to the best Italian and European Pizzerias.
Cirillo’s landed the number 16 spot on the list while Galway’s Dough Bros came in at 21.
While the number 1 position was taken out by 50 Kalò di Ciro Salvo Pizzeria London.
Each pizzeria was judged by an anonymous judging visit (dream job just quietly) and the rankings were announced online in Milan on Tuesday night.
“The service is precise and cheerful, and the organization for home delivery and take-away is impeccable,” 50TopPizza judges commented about Dough Bros.
Meanwhile, Cirillo’s was branded the best pizza in Dublin by judges of the competition.
“The atmosphere is more like that of a pub than a pizzeria, but there is no doubt about the product,” 50TopPizza judges said of Cirillo’s.
“The pizza is remarkably like the traditional Neapolitan pizza, well risen and, more importantly, well baked.”
A great achievement by both businesses.
