NileGuide Expert tip:
Sunday night is two for one pizza night.
Vietnamese cuisine is, of course, top of the tree when it comes to dining out in Saigon. Nevertheless, the city's international dining options aren't half bad these days either. For many travelers the majority of pizzas they will sample in Southeast Asia will be of the 'happy' variety, but lovers of authentic Italian thin crust pies will be equally enamored by the wood-fired wonders purveyed at this charming outdoor venue. Although situated in the heart of downtown, Scoozi's location at the end of Thai Van Lung gives it a detached feel, which makes it a great venue for some al-fresco chilling with friends. The food is equally convivial with a huge variety of creations on offer. Classics such as Quattro stagioni and margherita are present and correct along with a few additional daring creations. The overall standard is very good, something you might expect from a place where quality ingredients such as mozzarella di bufala and prosciutto are used, and two for one night on a Sunday is a particularly good time to find your little pizza paradise.
