'Entebbe's answer to the traditional wood-oven fired Neapolitan Pizza'
Nicky's Pizza restaurant opened in April of 2010 and is already a hit with families and pub & restaurant goers alike. In the forefront is a parking area for approx 12 vehicles. After this, a sizeable grassed garden area dotted with a variety of tables, chairs and parasols for shaded dining. In the front of the building is a long balcony up the entrance stairs for singles seating. The balcony is 1meter above and overlooking the garden dining area. The centerpiece attraction of the building however is a very large wood-fired oven with a surrounding wall internally lit up at night with blue lights. The oven, designed and built by the owner, creates optimum temperatures of between 500 up to 800 degrees Celsius for flash cooking and crusting all manner of pizza’s and breads. The mark of a good Neapolitan pizza is how fast is can be cooked to perfection with high temperature and wood fire to create rustic appeal of this age old Italian farmhouse delicacy.
Internally the restaurant has been tastefully but plainly decorated. Furniture is modern yet simple, complemented by green table cloths with white centerpieces throughout. There is a small lounge area for more intimacy and a pool table for exercising the digits. The large restaurant room boasts 'one of the longest bars in the country' (New Vision Table Talk magazine Sept-2010) which, like the wood-oven, is also internally lit through the ingenious use of glass light bricks, creating an ambience for relaxing evenings enjoying music, large-screen plasma TV and with your favorite tipple of course.
