The classy Italian restaurant serves pizzas and pastas at its Al Mohammadiyyah location.

Sometimes nothing quite hits the comfort food spot like Italian food, and one restaurant that knows that well is Pizzeria Mauve in Riyadh. The new restaurant has opened in the Saudi capital, and it offers an exciting Italian menu filled with pizzas and pastas in a sophisticated setting.

Pizzeria Mauve is located in the capital’s Al Mohammadiyyah district, and the menu includes a range of Italian classics and unexpected additions. Starters include parmesan provolone balls, shrimp fritti and cheesy garlic bread. Pastas include a spicy shrimp pasta, eliche ricotta pesto pasta and tagliatelle creamy pasta. 

The signature dishes, as the name of the restaurant suggests, are the pizzas, and they span a pollo pizza, smoked turkey pizza and margarita pizza. Plus, even the crockery deserves a mention, as the food is served on Mediterranean-style plates, which are decorated with pretty prints painted in blue and white.

Pizzeria Mauve boasts a contemporary, classy design. Black and white geometric tiles cover the floor and ceiling, which are offset by curved emerald sofas. Great for groups, there are big tables with bigger banquettes. 

The tall floor-to-ceiling windows help create a bright and airy atmosphere, which is accentuated by a gothic-style chandelier hanging between shelves and foliage decorating the walls. Plus, the vibrant décor brings the outdoors indoors, as it includes trees and birdcages. 

Pizzeria Mauve has a cool mocktail list, too. The drinks include Hibiscus Sangria with cinnamon, star anise, cranberry juice and orange juice; Blue Ocean with lime juice, pineapple juice, agave syrup, blue lagoon and basil leaves; and the Zack Hurricane with fresh orange, peach puree, lime juice and passion fruit. 

Pizzeria Mauve is open Sunday to Wednesday from 4pm to 11.30pm, and Thursday to Saturday from 4pm to 12.30am. Go on, grab a slice.
