For us, our story is as important as our food! As you are also a part of our story, we would love to share you the story of how we began our journey.
It all started back in late 1980s. Hippies were the story of distant past. And Kathmandu was already well on its way of being the epicenter of mountain traveling. This mystic city had already started to charm many travelers from different corners of the world. Kathmandu was also evolving in a way that could cater to the growing number of trekkers. Around the same time, Rubiolo Battista, fondly known as Robi, came up with the idea of opening a pizzeria in Thamel, a tourism hotspot and backpackers’ heaven. Robi was an Italian chef, adventurer, photographer and most importantly a true lover of this beautiful Himalayan country, which was his second home. At that time, Western food was still a big deal and he was well aware about the world’s love for pizza. So, Robi’s idea of establishing a restaurant served two purposes – to make the foreign travelers feel at home and to start pizza culture among the locals.
