Azzurri Pizzeria

Named after the Italian soccer team, Azzurri Pizzeria is a Neapolitan-style pizzeria and a well-loved Edmonton Tr. fixture. The eatery is run by the Ricioppo family, which has been serving Italian food in Calgary for decades. The family is known for some popular and now-closed restaurants including Il Pescatore, Gambero Rosso and the still-open La Luna Rossa Ristorante, located right next door.

In 2015, brothers Faustino and Alessandro jumped on the idea of opening a pizzeria serving Italian pizza pie with a thin, chewy crust. Drop in and you’ll find both brothers working away. Alessandro makes the pizza, Faustino runs the front-of-house and mom Terry is on hand assisting where needed. It’s a favourite neighborhood gem with must-tries like the crostini, which is topped with crispy prosciutto, mozzarella and bruschetta, followed by the spicy La Testarossa or Pizza Bianco made with prosciutto cotto, mushrooms and goat cheese. Reservations are recommended.
