Dear readers, Read through the reviews and you will see that many of us reviewers agree that the best pizza in Lubum is prepared at the Zoo Restaurant... - Give it a try!

Situated at the zoo, it is a typical Italian restaurant specialising in pizza and pasta. The pizza was exceptional and the service was excellent.

This was my first restaurant in Lubumbashi. It is a nice outdoor seating area the pizzas were good. The prices were not too high. In a weird way it reminded me of Lucy Restaurant in Addis Ababa.

This place has some of the best pizza in town - nice thin base with huge number of toppings to choose from - and cooked in a wood-fired oven. Great pili-pili, good service, cold drinks, a nice night out.

Not what it used to be! Change in the management and nothing Italian anymore! Even espresso wasn't available last time we visited!

A lovely place to visit tucked away in the car park of the cities zoo. There is a good choice of Italian food but the pizza is without doubt the best in town. Well worth a visit.

Thats a good spot in Lubumbashi, nothing pretentious, very relax atmosphere surrounded by Lubumbashi Zoo. Food is simple and good: pasta, pizza, gnocchi, ravioli. Its like an italian trattoria, a very pleasant stay.
