My review of 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria – A restaurant that serves your typical Italian dishes. This restaurant makes their pizzas very fast as they have a massive oven that bakes them at 800 degrees.
The insalata di salmone or what is known as the salmon salad, was fresh and the smoked salmon was seasoned wonderfully. There was a generous amount of smoked salmon and lots of greens to enjoy it with. The vinaigrette dressing was the perfect amount to make the salad great.
The ricotta cheese bread was not as good as I was hoping they would be. I found that there was very little ricotta cheese, and it was just biting into mostly bread.
The pizza that I had was tasty. This pizza has 3 different types of cheese as the toppings and this pizza is perfect for those who love cheese. The crust was thick, but I’m sure you can request it for it to be thinner, which I forgot to do.
The chicken that was oven baked and then served on a sizzling hot plate was my favourite. The chicken was so juicy and the marinade on it was outstanding. The size of the chicken was half of a chicken, which comes with a leg and a half of the breast.
Finally, I want to finish the review on the wonderful passion fruit pana cotta that I had. This is a big change from the plain pana cotta, as this one was made out of the passion fruit, so it had a nice sweet and sour taste. The kiwi and pineapple fruit toppings were fresh and went along well with this dessert. The pistachio gelato that I had was lacking the pistachio flavour, it was very faint and was not the best gelato that I had.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4/5.
I ordered the insalata di salmone for 45DHS, ricotta cheese bread for 28DHS, and quattro formaggi pizza for 52DHS, chicken, passion fruit pana cotta for 23DHS, and the pistachio gelato for 15DHS.
The pricing is fair.
The service was a bit off, but the hostess was very friendly and gave the restaurant a good first impression. Once we sat down, the servers kept staring at us and did not attend to our table until I motioned them to come. The food came out in a good amount of time.
Finally, the ambience of restaurant was a decent looking place located inside the Deira City Centre Mall, the decor and furniture matches the pizzeria theme. There are plenty of tables and booths located inside the restaurant with a view of the massive oven this restaurant is well known for.
