Alright, bring on the haterade.  I am in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia yes.  And yes, I am having a pizza. Problem?  I just love pizza, although my stomach tells me I should lay it off because I am having trouble digesting anything nowadays .

But it’s not going to stop me from eating some delicious pizza.

La Piaza is a restaurant that is ranked 86 out of 382 restaurants.  I have no idea how the ranking is done at TripAdvisor.    But to tell you the truth I didn’t really research it before hand.



Nah, I went because it was right in my hotel (Sheraton) =p.

Yes I was lazy.  And yes I am in Riyadh, so I probably should have ventured out more.  But give me a break, it was my first day here, I was jet lagged, it is super hot here, and this place is not pedestrian friendly.

It’s not like I can just go out onto the streets, walk around and find a restaurant that I fancy.  No, I need to call a driver (in this instance, Uber) to get me the restaurant of choice.  Then I would have had to call another uber to go back to the hotel.


Listen, my data roaming plan costs money okay?  I ain’t no billionaire with a data plan that allows me to roam 24/7 constantly.   And if the restaurant didn’t have any wifi then well, I would have been super screwed.  And that would not be fun.

Especially since I don’t know the place that well.

Back to the pizza shall we?

Yesss this pizza was gooooood.  I expected something crappy since we are in Riyadh (meaning I didn’t think I could find authentic italian here).  But this pizza was delicious.


I ordered the pepperoni pizza because I haven’t had this classic one in a long time.  So I definitely was satisfied after this meal.  If you do by chance stay at the Sheraton in Riyadh, I highly recommend you check out this restaurant at least once.

It will be worth your time.

And no, they don’t serve alcohol here.
