All of us love good food and excellent drinks. That is why we explored dozens of restaurants and cafes in Ubud, many of which we loved so much and highly recommend you to visit when you are in Bali. In addition to the traditional cuisine, there are also a lot of European, Mexican, Indian restaurants and cafes.
Italian cuisine in Ubud
The Italian empire expands to Ubud offering Ubud residents and tourists the doorway to great Italian cuisine!
Mamma Mia is the most famous and oldest pizzeria in Ubud. We often came here for a quick lunch.
The interior is very simple, and from the street, you can even see a real wood-burning stove. The owner of the restaurant named Tony is a very friendly guy, and he doesn’t mind to sit with visitors and talk to them. You also will enjoy the warm greeting and friendly customer service.
All pizzas in Mamma Mia are excellent! They are firm, crispy and evenly spread with toppings. Well worth a change if you’ve had your fill of Nasi Goreng or a vegan detox! They also give you a container to take your uneaten food with you.

Fruit juices and cappuccino 2-3$

Mmm… Marzano is one of the most popular Italian restaurants in Ubud. Here you can find the largest selection of pizzas (over 30!). As it may appear at first that they only serve Italian food, but it’s not true. They also have some delicious local food.The front of the cafe faces a busy street and the back surprisingly a calm serene paddy filed.
When you order a pizza they serve a bruschetta as a welcome gift. Both of them are very delicious! The staff is also very friendly and they have always a smile that makes you feel good. Amazing view over rice paddies is also a bonus!

The place might be quite crowded, but the food is served pretty fast. The oil in baby bottles simply has to be seen.
There’s something for every member of the family, and it’s got a great family-friendly vibe. The open kitchen is a huge plus, where you can see the process involved in making an oven-baked pizza.
Bagus is a good Italian food restaurant in Ubud. “Bagus” in English means “good.”
It is a great place with many tables and sofas inside and outside of the restaurant. Bagus offers visitors an ample space to come with big company or children. Here you can find a lot of delicious Italian pizzas, pasta, and drinks. Everything is so yummy and compared to other places in Ubud it is really not expensive.
They now make the base wholemeal if you prefer. Such a range of toppings making it hard to choose..but every choice is a good choice.

The best thing to order is the Nasi Campur.. choose your own vegetables from the front counter – about 6 or 7 dishes makes for a yummy feast. The taste profiles tend to vary from day to day – they have good days and bad days, but the energy of the food is always good.
