With 800 PIZZA now being considered by many to be the finest Italian Restaurant in town, you wouldn't really believe how small it was when it all started. Mr. Alessandro D'Ubaldo, the mind and soul behind 800 PIZZA, had been living in Dubai since 1999, and in 2006, he started working on a PIZZERIA project due to his passion for traditional and authentic Italian food.
March 8, 2007, the very first branch was opened in Al Barsha despite having the most dynamic name in the long and colorful history of pizza making, 800 PIZZA 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, 800 PIZZA joined hands with Belhasa Hospitality which resulted in a strong growth of its business. By October 2012 the joy and satisfaction that 800 PIZZA brought to all its customers were not just contained within 40sqm branch in Al Barsha, Dubai, but had spread all over the city with additional 6 branches in Marina walk Dubai, Downtown, Motor City, Arabian Center, Abidos (The Villa) and Aswaaq.
800 PIZZA'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 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.
