Their artisanal pizza is prepared after a successful Italian recipe, using fresh bio ingredients imported from Italy and a 72-hour pizza dough that is truly spectacular.

This place has not only great pizza, but also a great story. The Neapolitan pizza at Borgo Margherita is the creation of Benny, a Neapolitan chef that moved to Bucharest to delight the world with one of the tastiest Napoletana pizzas you will find in the city. Their location on Calea Calarasi is not your usual fancy place, but has a cozy atmosphere and the food is to die for, so it’s definitely worth a visit!
