Back in the ’80s, there were just a couple of pizzerias in Belgrade. This simple dish was almost exclusive, a once in a couple of months delicacy, and you had to travel to the very center to order a pizza. Now, it’s available at almost every corner. However, still only a couple of places offer a truly good pizza, one that would stand out and come close to those in Naples or Puglia.
Campo de Fiori is one of them. Actually, for me, this is where the best pizza in Belgrade is made. Its dough is thin, tasty and crunchy, and the ingredients and their combinations are marvelous.
Hidden in Njegoševa street, between the beautiful Gardoš area and Danube, it is situated below ground level, in a charming setup made of rocks. The owner got his know-how in Rome, where he used to chef around in a couple of high-end eateries for years.
You can never go wrong with ordering a staple margherita con rucola e parmigiano, or the one with spinach and gorgonzola. A big salad, Portuguese wine and a pizza can really be a fitting menu for two persons, and the prices are really tight-wallet friendly.
The menu has a great antipasti offer with various sorts of foccacias, as well as some good pastas and lasagnas.
So when in Zemun, act like the locals do and get a table at Campo De Fiori. And don’t mistake this place with the one by the same name in Belgrade’s center.
