One of our favourite Italian restaurants which was on our Italian restaurant’s list. Via Pre is an authentic Italian restaurant set in the heart of Penang. To some Italians, it’s home away from home. That’s right, authentic Italian cuisine with great hospitality. Their pizzas are raved by many. Flavorful but not overpowering, made from scratch and very Italian.

We understand it gets frustrating sometimes when our Muslim friends don’t get to enjoy certain food, especially pizza. Don’t worry, you guys can now enjoy delicious, affordable pizzas at Streeto Pizza. They’re probably the only pizzeria in town that caters to Muslims. Not your regular Italian pizza, but more local-styled with generous cheese and homemade sauce. Streeto is not a restaurant but more of a coffee shop, which makes it more neighborhood-friendly.

While Pizzaiola might not be the most authentic Italian restaurant, they serve some really good pizzas. We would say Pizzaiola is more of a fusion, where it takes a bit of the culture here and there. Ever had fried tempura on your pizza? Or even unagi? The combination might sound odd but Pizzaiola makes them right. We recommend going for their set meals as they’re really great in value.
