GIROPizza, Trinidad

Authentic, brick-oven pizza has recently been becoming more popular in Trinidad and now we're at it again! Though we all can't forget our chains such as Mario's, Pizza Hut and Dominoes, with places like Buzo, La Cantina and Bacco serving up piping hot, thin crust brick oven pizza (made in 5 minutes), who can resist? Now we've got another small but lovely restaurant in a convenient location for those of us with a hankering for pizza and can't make it to POS or South.

GIROPizza is a small take-away only restaurant located at 94, Ramsaran St, Chaguanas. When I saw the (very few) raving reviews, I just had to try it! The ingredients are great, lots of options are available and the service is impeccable. They also have two sizes so if you're solo or eating with friends, you have options!

I'm surprised more people have not yet tried this pizza but it might be due to a few (disputable) factors. It's take-away only as the shop is quite small and only has enough space for the kitchen. While I agree that sitting and having the pizza as it comes out of the oven is always better, it doesn't change the fact that I really enjoyed it regardless. I had two slices in the car and another later on, each of those being quite good. I must admit that I preferred it hot though. The location might be a bit discouraging also because the address of "Edinburgh" is unfamiliar and may seem hard to find. It's not! The main road parallel to the north-bound side of the highway is a straight road and it's just on that road - no side streets, turn-offs or anything! So, why not try it or even call for delivery, you just might enjoy it. Update*** Giropizza has moved to Ramsaran Street, Chaguanas and now has a bigger, easier to find location.
