You are instantly enveloped in the charming ambiance of a cozy,  classic Italian restaurant as you enter Fire and Ice Pizzeria. Italian chef, Annamaria Forgione embarked on her journey to serve home cooked delicacies by launching Fire and Ice Pizzeria in Kathmandu and Kolkata.

Inspired to expand the restaurant chain, Annamaria’s daughter, Amarili Wiseman, Director, introduced Fire and Ice Pizzeria in Sri Lanka to share her family’s passion for creating Italy’s famous thin crust pizzas.

Indulge in authentic Paesana Pizza.

Fire and Ice Pizzeria ensures an exclusive selection of pizza toppings and spices for a mouthwatering delight. Amarili Wiseman, emphasized on the concept the restaurant follows: “We try to locally source as much as possible from the island. We want to give a message that pizza isn’t unhealthy if the toppings are fresh.”

The spacious lounge is furnished with a bright blue sofa and vivid hues of red and yellow cushions. The brick wall creates a warm backdrop as you are yet to discover the dining areas. The open-air outdoor spaces are surrounded by lush greenery while the indoor dining space exudes elegance. The vintage posters together with the red walls of the interior reflect the lively and passionate Italian culture. Diners can watch the action of flavors blend perfectly together in the open kitchen. Rompipalle and Paesana are their signature pizzas and for dessert, a scoop of Italian soft ice cream is ideal to enjoy after a delectable meal. A must try is the ‘Fire and Ice Delight’, a special mocktail infused with frozen strawberries.

Experience true Italian dining and relish in delicious recipes of home cooked cuisine, straight from the ovens of Italy.
