I’ve never been a Pizza fan until I came to Mauritius and two places changed my mind. Firstly, I tried La Cosa Nostra after I’d heard good reports about it from friends who had tried it or were familiar returning customers. I was still reticent to give it a go but one evening I thought “why the hell not”. Now, it has become a regular venue to eat and pizza is back in my life.
La Cosa Nostra itself is located on the busy Royal Road in Tamarin just by the salt pan museum. No matter what time you arrive the place is busy with either diners or people collecting take-aways.
The thin crust Pizza’s are made in a large wood fire oven built by the owner Eric Imbert. Tables are laid out in an undercover courtyard area with a sand floor. You can always relax with a drink at the La Cosa Nostra bar whilst waiting for a table to be ready whilst taking in the busy yet chilled vibe.
I keep saying to myself, I’m doing myself a disservice by recommending my favourite places but these businesses need to be acknowledged for standing out in a crowd!
