Pizza Locale: The best in town (yet)

Two friends from university in Izmir decided to follow their dreams after some years in corporate environment in Istanbul. Like everybody dreamed of doing they actually did. Started first in Alsancak the upscale neighborhood of Izmir followed by Bostanli and finally in Balcova, today they have five branches in a very short-time and it is no coincidence.

We have tried Pizza Locale for the first time following their debut in Balcova, at first try it was over crowded and people were queuing so we tried again another day, we were lucky enough to be seated the last available table. There more table lined up after us in only 5 minutes. Our first impression was promising, the kitchen is open where you can see all the details including the oven, they have nothing to hide.

We have tried two options, both were extremely good, quattro formaggi is delicate and Fumed Ribs (Füme Kaburga) was really delicious. Overall we strongly recommend Pizza Locale as the best pizza you can have in Izmir so far.

How to get there:

Address: Korutürk Mahallesi Mithatpaşa Cad., No:195/A Balçova, İzmir 35330
Phone: 0232-279-19-79
