Anybody who has ventured out to 105 in the wee hours of the morning knows that Devito’s is the place to be once the drunken charm of the other places in town has run its course, especially if you’re in the mood for a big’ole slice of pizza. The allure of Devito’s is grounded in the complex and irresistible combination of greasy pepperoni, garlic oil, chilli and parmesan cheese. This mixture is such an epic flavour sensation that the staff at Devito’s could hardly hide their excitement upon describing it to me.
These people are adamant that they make some killer pizza. It would seem that the 500 people that stumble through their door on Laugavegur on the average weekend would agree. This place gets packed with people queuing for and merrily devouring their slices – which go for the bargain basement price of 450 ISK. For those with a heartier appetite, Devito’s claims to have the cheapest margarita pizza in town… and if it’s not the cheapest, they maintain that it’s certainly the tastiest. You know a place is good when the people behind the counter seem to care about what they’re selling and totally dig it themselves.
This is definitely the best place to go if you’re in the mood for a drunken slice in the late-night – they’re open 10.30 to 6.00 (Friday/Saturday) and 12.00 to 6.00 (Saturday/Sunday).
