Best pizza in Chiang Mai – Gianni de Burchio Italian Restaurant

For my final post on our trip to Chiang Mai, I am going to share with you that delightful city’s greatest delight.

Gianni de Burchio Italian restaurant.

Yes, yes, temples, markets, Thai food. All part of Chiang Mai’s endless charm. But Gianni de Burchio…well.

MJ and I stumbled across this place on our first afternoon in Chiang Mai and pizza sounded pretty tasty. Oh how I underestimated Gainni de Burchio! The pizza was sensational! Maybe some of the best pizza I’ve…ever…eaten. I know, I’m as shocked writing that as you are reading it.

There are a surprising number of pizza shops in Chiang Mai, and I believe I saw two that claimed to have the best pizza in town. I wonder if it could have been better than Gianni de Burchio? I can’t tell you because when we felt like eating pizza again…we went straight back to Gianni de Burchio.

Our second lunch was quite a bit lengthier and involved much more alcohol (and very strong coffee). In the interest of full disclosure, Gianni, who runs the restaurant with his wife, plied us with booze while feeding us things like homemade ricotta and lasagne that, you guessed it, was some of the best lasagne I’ve ever eaten. No offense to the people in my life who make delicious lasagne (you know who you are), but this was….almost as good as yours!

    I agree!

    On our last night in Chiang Mai, Lisa and I had the most lovely dinner at his restaurant.

    The service was excellent and Gianni was so good to us! He made sure we ate and drank so well! We took a photo with him which we promised to e-mail to him- but don’t have his email address???

    I cannot wait to visit Thailand again and especially Chiang Mai!

    The best pizza I’ve had so far is at Dukes. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the base was. Better than pizzas back home in Australia.
