Oh Bonne Mère !

The Pizzeria Bonne Mère is more than  an added value, we talk about an institution in the Vauban district! Located on the street  ‘Fort du Sanctuaire’, it’s the address where everyone meets and where Maëva, the colourful chef, sets the mood for pizzas in Marseille. Whether you eat in or take away, we advise you to make a reservation because it is often full! We recommend the ‘Bonne Mère’ and the  ‘Fanny’ pizzas, which are not to be missed.

Chez Sauveur

It is in the popular district of Noailles where the restaurant Chez Sauveur has been nestled for more than 70 years and whose reputation is a reflection of its ever-growing attendance both inside and outside the brand.  Since its opening, this oven is still active for the famous wood-fired cooking of pizzas for which we stop for a lunch break or dinner with friends. Its pizzas are the direct fruit of the local market located in the heart of Noailles.. We suggest the great classics, the margherita or the rocket (salad) one!

L'eau à la bouche

How can you talk about pizzerias without mentioning l’Eau à la Bouche (mouth-watering)? The little restaurant at the crossroads of Malmousque, the Corniche and Endoume is a must-see . In summer, it’s even a weekend tradition to have a pizza from l’Eau à la Bouche, a bottle of rosé et take a dip in the Malmousque district. The very recognisable pizza boxes carried by all the locals of Marseille as soon as the sun comes out. The fine pastry and fresh, delicious ingredients make you salivate, and Jacquemus himself has made no mistake about it, as it was mentioned in its Marseille city guide.
If you don’t know what to choose : ‘l’Angelina’, simple but incredible with its raw ham and olive oil, or the ‘Olga’ for its originality with salmon and  faisselle cheese.

Chez Etienne, a legendary dinning table in the Panier district

The mythical pizzeria of Marseille. Chez Etienne, located in the heart of the Panier district, it’s almost like being in Naples! As there is no reservation, you have to come early to eat two choices of pizza, cheese or anchovies, or the typical of Marseille the ‘mi-mi’, a mixture of the two. At Etienne’s pizzeria, you also go there for its unusual atmosphere, its old photos of stars who have passed through the restaurant on the wall, and its Marseille-style service without a fuss!

Charly Pizza, unbeatable price and quality

The kings of street-food pizza are at Charly Pizza. Near la Canebière street, no one is mistaken and the queue in front of the small shop clearly shows the enthusiasm of the people of Marseille for  Charly since 1962 ! Beyond the unbeatable prices (around 4€ for a cheese pizza), it’s the freshness of the ingredients, the local fruits and vegetables and its cosmopolitan recipes that make Charly Pizza so successful. Its historic shop is located in the Noailles district but you can also find another one that recently opened just next to the Place Général de Gaulle.

Chez Zé, the unmistakable cuttlefish pizza

At the gates of the Calanques National Park, is a famous restaurant Chez Zé, specializing in wood-fired pizzas since 1960, well known by the people of Marseille. But insiders know that if there is only one pizza to try, it is of course the squid ink pizza with supions (cuttlefish)! Have you ever tried such a pizza? Surprising and delicious, this recipe originates from Sicily, and the Cimolai family has been cooking it for three generations!

O' Ventre sur Pâte, a stone's throw from Le Prophète beach!

From Tuesday to Sunday, on the spot, on delivery, or to take away, the pizzeria O’ Ventre sur Pâte has been welcoming you since 2012 opposite the Prophète beach to treat you to good Neapolitan-style pizzas. Fresh produce, a half-and-half pizzeria if you can’t make up your mind, and the owner’s good humour for a real moment of conviviality!

La Bella Pizza, the gem of Notre-Dame du Mont

La Bella Pizza on Cours Julien lets you rediscover the authentic taste of wood-fired pizza! Set up by Romain a few years ago in Notre-Dame du Mont, the place has made a name for itself with local customers, and everyone loves meeting up there for a drink, a laugh with friends and some good advice from the chef on choosing their pizzas!
