Best Pizza in Riga (Updated in 2023)

There’s much more to Riga than cheap chain pizzerias! The last few years have seen a major boom in the amount of pizzerias in this Northern city whose residents seem to love gluten, melted cheese and tomato sauce. Here are some of our favourites, which serve what we think is some of the best pizza in Riga.

Casa Nostra

Elizabetes iela 10b

The pizzaiolo is Italian! What more is there to say. Well actually – lots. Casa Nostra feels like a much-loved family home, so much effort has been invested in getting the feel and food just right. Be sure to book a table to avoid disappointment.

Street Pizza

Meža iela 4a

street pizza
Head on over to one of the prettiest streets in Riga’s suburb of Āgenskalns on the left bank of the river Daugava. No crazy or unconventional toppings here, just quality sourdough with classics including chunky forest mushrooms and burratta. Get a table with a view of the famous pink Orthodox church. (Thanks to Street Pizza for the pic!)

Super thin base, rich toppings and doused in truffle oil.


Āgenskalns market at Nometņu iela 64, and Burzma at Galerija Centrs shopping centre

The Riga outpost of a family-run pizzeria in a rural part of the Vidzeme region. Inspired by Italy. Served in the glorious setting of the revamped Āgenskalns market. By day, the market is bustling with locals doing their shopping. At night, it becomes a popular hangout for food and drinks.

Now also serving at a central shopping centre.

Picas meistars

Kuģu iela 11 and Baznīcas iela 24

Now serving both sides of the river (and Ogre)! So happy the owners decided to expand to the centre of town after the obvious success of their Pārdaugava branch just opposite the National Library. Fantastic fresh pizzas with creative toppings for carnivores and vegetarians. Expect Latvian toppings like dill and gherkins on some of them! This is not your usual thin-crust Italian affair.

Da Sergio

Tērbatas iela 65 (entrance on Matīsa iela)

Pizza from a proper wood-fired oven and house wine served in a carafe – Da Sergio’s certainly got a very Italian feel to it. In summer, you can enjoy your meal on the outdoor patio.


Strēlnieku iela 11

Piranija has, quite possibly, the longest pizza menu in Riga, and some toppings are more authentic than others. The owner spent time living in Italy, brought the pizza dough recipe back with him and opened shop in 2006. Apparently, he’s also into extreme sports hence the wakeboards and kiteboards stuck up on the walls. Best overlook the strange décor!
