2 Philippine restaurants enter top global pizzas list, 1 wins World Pizza of the Year

MANILA, Philippines — Two Philippine restaurants have risen from their previous ranks on the online guidebook 50 Top Pizza's list in the Asia-Pacific Region and even placed as among the best pizzerias in the world.

This is the first time that any Philippine restaurant placed in the 50 Top Pizza globally.

Crosta Pizzeria figured in the No. 54 spot globally and rose from 32nd to 10th in the 50 Top Pizza for Asia-Pacific. Meanwhile, A mano placed No. 96 and went up from 48th to 15th in the latter list.

Chef Yuicho Abellare Ito of Crosta Pizzeria also won the Latteria Sorrentina Award for Pizza of the Year 2023 because of his Cherry Culatello Pie composed of black Tasmanian cherries marinated in marsala, gorgonzola cream, mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar.

In last year's list of 50 Top Pizza for Asia-Pacific, the third Filipino restaurant was Wild Flour Italian, which at the time placed at No. 38.

Sharing the top spot of the global 50 Top Pizza list were Best Service – Goeldlin Award winner 10 Diego Vitagliano Pizzeria and I Masanielli, both in Italy. Five other restaurants based in Italy finished within the Top 10.

The highest-ranked Asia-based restaurants were Japan's The Pizza Bar on 38th at No. 4 and China's Bottega at No. 8.
