Ciao Bella Pizzeria opened its doors in 2011 and has established itself in the Strand area as the Pizzeria of choice. Mouth-watering thin-base wood fire pizzas, tantalizing pasta's, aromatic cappuccinos and great service are the trademarks of this warm and friendly pizzeria. Owner Juan van der Merwe and his friendly staff are inviting you into the warm atmosphere for a glass of wine or a cold beer. Our flagship pizza, called the Grande is a massive 45cm and can possibly feed a small village. Take-Away menu and deliveries are available.
