This version earns our highest ranking in spite of the price tag and location, due to its near-perfect crust: chewy with a hint of char. The cheeses are unbelievably delicious—mozzarella, fontina, pecorino and just the right amount of gorgonzola. All pizzas here deserve your attention but you’ll also appreciate the rustic interiors that add an extra level of charm. It’s truly worth making this trip!

Key Differentiators:

  • Freshly baked pizza
  • Wood-fired brick oven cheese pizza 
  • Rustic interiors

Customer’s Review:

If you happen to be around the area, give the place a try. Absolutely outstanding pizza and a beef carpaccio that’s quite literally a steal. Paired with great house wine in a beautiful location and very warm, friendly service.

Sunday 11AM–10PM

The exceptional aspect of Amare’s cheese pizza is that it achieves the same flavor profile as other cheese pizzas but with less. As indicated by its title, only three types of cheese are used instead of four or five which leads to an intense and flavorful bite. Every slice yields a robust yet delectable outcome—indeed too scrumptious! It’s no wonder why Amare reigns for brick-oven pizza connoisseurs like ourselves.

Key Differentiators:

  • Wood-fired cheese pizza
  • Balanced flavor 
  • Homemade pizza

Customer’s Review:

I finally got a chance to try this place last Saturday evening for dinner. The first thing you’ll notice upon walking up to the restaurant’s entrance is their pizza corner, with their brick ovens. No wonder they have a section dedicated to making pizza alone because Amare La Cucina offers its diners the to make their own pizza!

Friday 11:00 AM – 11:00 PM
Saturday 10:00 AM – 11:00 PM
Sunday 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM

Let’s start with a real curveball on the list – truffle-sprinkled pizza. Who knew that something so unique could be so delightful? Don’t worry, it doesn’t make this dish overly rich or pretentious; instead, you get an earthy aroma and just enough of a kick to encourage adding chili oil. The texture balance is perfection too – crispy around the edges but gradually getting softer as you move towards the center. This has got to be one of the best!

Key Differentiators:

  • Italian cheese pizza
  • Specially sourced cheese
  • Wood-fired cheese pizza

Customer’s Review:

This is my most favorite Italian restaurant in Manila. Da Gianni’s cheese pizzas are always so tasty, with just the right amount of truffle aroma and cheese blend. The dough is always cooked to perfection in their wood-fired oven. The service is also great, and the waiters are always friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Yellow Cab Pizza Co., a popular eatery that was established in 2001 to bring the taste of New York City to the Philippines, is renowned for its generous toppings and premium ingredients. With a name inspired by NYC’s iconic yellow cabs, Yellow Cab promises an authentic slice of The Big Apple right here at home!

Customer’s Review:

If you’re looking for a cheese pizza that’s oozing with cheese, then Yellow Cab is the place to go. It’s like eating cheese pizza from New York City! The cheese blend they use is always so delicious, and the crust is surprisingly thin yet still holds up under all of the cheese and toppings. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area.

Key ServiceOval cheese pizza
AddressUGF Alabang Town Center
Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila
Websitehttps://cibo.ph/
Phone+639088872426
Operating HoursDaily 11AM–9PM

Cibo’s version of the classic brunch item comes with an unusual oval shape and rosemary garnish, making it a favorite for any get-together. Boasting maximum crunchiness among its counterparts, gorgonzola adds that extra zing to this scrumptious pizza. The mozzarella and gruyere might be intense for some, but the crispier crust helps balance out all these flavors! Crumble in some rosemary and chili oil to complete your indulgence experience.

Key Differentiators:

  • Gorgonzola cheese
  • Rosemary garnish
  • Mozzarella and gruyere cheese blend

Customer’s Review:

Cibo has some of the best cheese pizzas in Manila. The unique oval shape adds a nice visual touch while still packing in that cheese flavor. The gorgonzola cheese, rosemary garnish, and cheese blend make it an incredibly flavor-filled pizza. I usually get this as a shared dish for me and my friends and we always end up loving it!

When it comes to the Salvatore Cuomo chain, there are a few key things that really stand out. Not only is its menu an excellent introduction to Italian cuisine, but its atmosphere can transition seamlessly from a laid-back lunch spot to a romantic dinner night. Their pizza in particular has earned rave reviews thanks to its thin crust and perfect charring—and don’t forget the blend of cheese! For those who want something different, they offer up chili and honey on the side for a tasty twist.

Key Differentiators:

  • Chili and honey side option
  • Various cheese blend
  • Romantic dinner atmosphere

Customer’s Review:

I love Salvatore Cuomo & Bar because of the cozy atmosphere, friendly service, and delicious cheese pizzas. The cheese blend is so good – mild yet still flavorful. The chili and honey side option is a great way to customize it and make it your own. I always get this when I’m dining here with my friends, and we all love it!
