The Best Pizza in Cork


best pizza in cork

Pizza is my absolute favourite food! Last time I was in Italy I actually ate myself sick because I ate so much pizza!!!  Thankfully the kids love it as much as I do. It doesn’t take much in this house to make an excuse for pizza night! We love to stay at home and make our own pizzas (Aldi and Lidl both do great bases so we always have some in the freezer). But of course nothing beats being served up a freshly made pie!

There are so many great restaurants in and around Cork serving up some great pizza!  Here are some of our faves (in no particular order)

Luigi Malones 

Emmett Place, Cork

Ok I am a little nostalgic about Luigi Malone’s since it was actually where ThisIrishDad took me on our very first date!  Its become a family favourite and while the menu is pretty diverse we almost always end up sharing a

Toons Bridge Fairy Café

pizza (and wings of course)!!!  It makes for a great value pizza night out with the kids!

Toons Bridge Dairy

Toons Bridge, Macroom, Co. Cork

This might be the best kept secret around Macroom!!  We first visited Toons Bridge when we went to the Toy Solider Factory.  The pizza is fantastic but to be honest everything in here is!!

Pizzeria San Marco

Main Street, Midleton, Co Cork

Tasty authentic pizza on Main Street in Midleton.  The bunny shaped pizzas are a real hit with the kids! The place is always packed and the service has always been great.  Sometimes its nice not search for parking in Cork City.  Middleton is a buzzing with plenty of great restaurants and Pizzeria San Marco can hold its own here. The Giro Pizza is a great way to enjoy unlimited pizza with a large group of friends!!

Uncle Pete's Pizzeria

Uncle Pete’s Pizzeria

Paul Street, Cork

Uncle Pete’s has quickly become a family favourite.  Uncle Pete’s is they type of place you walk in and its like you’re being welcomed to a friends home.  Great hospitality topped only by great pizza.  The whole menu looks great and offers many gluten-free options.

Novecento Pizza

Mac Curtain Street, Cork 

The only downfall to Novecento is its far too close to work and I walk past it regularly. The struggle to keep on walking is real!!!  I don’t think I have every walked by without there being a smell of fresh pizza.

Fast Al’s


Nothing beats Fast Al’s for a quick slice on the run.  Whether lunch time or before heading home after a night out in town sometimes eating a slice of hot pizza on the street is the best thing in the world.


There are so many other great places for pizza in Cork! Tell us your favourite so we can try it if we haven’t already!
