Zero Zero Lisbon: Italian restaurant & pizzeria, delicious food, lovely decorated terrace near Botanical Garden & the city’s first Proseccheria
While walking around in area Príncipe Real in Lisbon we discovered Italian restaurant & pizzeria Zero Zero. One of the most beautiful terraces in the city, near the Botanical Garden (Jardim Botânico, one of Europe’s finest!)

Restaurant Zero Zero has one of Lisbon’s most beautiful terraces in the city center. We feel a bit like being in the heart of Italy, in the shade of bougainvilleas and the scent of flowers. A part of he terrace is covered with a canopy made of (I guess) willow branches, creating a lovely filtered sunlight.

Restaurant Zero Zero does not accept reservations but in case you have to wait for a table you can taste a variety of Italian cheeses and hams in the little deli shop at the entrance of the restaurant.
My experience: when you arrive for lunch around 12:30, there are plenty of tables available, also outside.

Italian Flour ’00’ & secret pizza recipe
Pizza is not one of my favorite dishes, but my friends loved the great quality. ZeroZero offers 15 pizza choices and besides there are lots of vegetarian options. If you eat inside you can see pizzas being made. The service was done with care and sympathy!
All the ingredients come from the best Italian producers, especially the Venice region.
The secret is in the dough, Zero Zero pizzeria uses a ‘balanced mixture of flour ’00’ and some other flours.
That’s why the name of this fine restaurant: ‘00′ or Zero Zero

More than a restaurant
Zero Zero is assumed to be Lisbon’s first Proseccheria‘ , thanks to the Prosecco bar at the entrance and their classic cocktails.
