800 Pizza

With 800PIZZA now being considered by many to be the finest Italian restaurant in town, it’s hard to believe its humble beginning. Mr. Alessandro D’Ubaldo, the mind and soul behind 800PIZZA, had been living in Dubai since 1999, and in 2006 he started working on a Pizzeria project, thanks to his passion for traditional and authentic Italian food.

On 8 March 2007, the very first branch was opened in Al Barsha and despite having the most dynamic name in the long and colourful history of pizza making, 800PIZZA was a gem of an establishment. Little more than a hole in the wall, it contained the Italian owner’s pride and joy, a genuine handcrafted wood burning oven flown in all the way from the “The Boot” of Southern Europe. In 2010, 800PIZZA joined hands with Belhasa Hospitality which resulted in a strong growth of its business. By October 2012, the joy and satisfaction that 800PIZZA brought to all its customers were no longer just contained within the 40sqm branch in Al Barsha Dubai, but had spread all over the city with an additional 6 branches. 800PIZZA’s ardent passion and wish to share a taste of real Italian cuisine with people in this part of the globe is indeed a huge success. With new branches constantly opening, 800PIZZA has proven its excellence in the food industry and has surely built a brand recognized by many as the leading name in traditional and authentic Italian food.
