There is nothing better than spending quality time around a pizza made with passion and by people who love what they do

Barrio Pizza begins with its base: a light dough made only with flour, yeast, water and salt; its San Marzano tomato-based sauce; mozzarella cheese, and to give it that unique texture, the pizza spends only 90 seconds in the oven.

Good deeds, no matter how big or small, make a difference in society and open the way to a better tomorrow. That is why Barrio Pizza always supports different causes.

When you enter Barrio Pizza, it gives you the feeling of a small modern place, but made with love, it is cozy and colourful, which also makes it very Panamanian.

Its walls function as a kind of gallery, there is painting and graffiti from different artists, and the rest of the pizzeria has very rustic stone walls in sight, which gives an atmosphere of familiarity.

At Barrio Pizza they know the importance of taking care of detail; this is why each ingredient is chosen carefully. Starting from the “00” type flour that makes a light pizza, all the way through cheeses and meats of certified quality and a wide variety of fresh and natural vegetables. When you eat a Barrio Pizza, you’re not eating just a pizza…you are eating “La Pizza”.
