Restaurants

Pizza in Tallinn. Naples of the North? So much to choose from!

Not long ago, a pizza in Tallinn was merely a joke. The offering seemed so mediocre ​that a restaurant goer ended up eating anything but pizza.

Would it have been Kaja Pizza who changed everything, but nowadays the situation is quite different. A restaurant after another seems to be getting Italian pizza ovens, learning how to bake the sourdough pizza bottom, and doing the best to use the best quality ingredients.

The pizzerias in Tallinn are nowadays so good that it’s time to list the very best. So here is the list Best pizza in Tallinn by Sooloiluja blog aka me, Henna Mikkilä.

Pomo-ravintolan pizzat tallinnassa

One of the best pizzas I have recently eaten in Tallinn was this pesto mozzarella one in Ülemiste, in a restaurant called Pomo. It was a great fun-looking place – see photos here! (Text so far only in Finnish)

Henna’s favorite pizza in Tallinn

Pizza has not usually been one of my first choices when I was thinking about food while traveling. Recently, however, I’ve been inspired to test the pizzerias in Tallinn partly for this list, but also because the offering seems to be quite good.

Different people like different type of pizzas. I myself am fond of genuine Neapolitan, which are available in several different restaurants in Tallinn. I like the bottom to be the sourdough type. Towards the end of this post there is a list of other peoples’ favorite pizzerias, and in these there might be different genres (flat, pan etc.) available as well.

Kaja Pizza Köök sells out every day

Kaja Pizza Kök is one of my very favorite ones in town. Here you can see pictures of the small cozy place. The address is Õle 33, and Kaja’s own website here.

Jahu is both pizza and burgers

If Kaja is small, then Jahu Street is tiny. In addition to delicious pizzas, this small street food kitchen makes one of the city’s best burgers. Find it near the Freedom Square at Estonia Puiestee 19. Their fb page here.

Kaja pizzas stay in the 500 degree oven just for a little while. So if there is no queue, you will get your pizza quickly. Of course it is a rare treat that Kaja does not have a queue, so popular it is. 

This place shows you who is the Boss of pizza

This new place in Ülemiste area was able to surprise me both with its funky interior design and tasty pizzas! The camera went hot when I wondered Pomo’s (Pomo = boss in Finnish) wild interiors – see photos here! The place is near the airport at Sepise 8, Facebook pages here

OKO serves tasty pizzas and beautyful scenery 

Few people want to go 15 kilometers from the city center for a pizza, but you might consider doing so for OKO if you’re planning a visit to the Viimsi Open Air Museum or a day at the beach. This beach restaurant belongs to the same family with the favorite restaurant NOA, delicious Paju Villa or Tulika. I found OKO just recently, wondering why not earlier! OKO is on Haapneeme beach and its web pages can be found here

The four pictures above are from the OKO restaurant in Haabneeme. Pizza was really good – and so was the scenery!

So that’s it with my personal favorites – now it gets more interesting! Namely I asked this really friendly Facebook group called Expats in Tallinn which places in addition to these four should be added to the Pizza in Tallinn list. The question got a super enthusiastic reception, and here is the results:

Recommended by Expats in Tallinn

So my list goes on with pizzerias recommended by the members of the Facebook group of foreigners living in Tallinn. The list is long, so I just mention the name and address, which is also a map link:

Save these lists as well!

I’ve collected some other lists as well for you to find easier all the best places to wine and dine.
