Da Filippo Pizza Artigianale is a popular pizzeria located in El Poblado in Medellín. It has some very good thin-crust pizza cooked in a wood-burning brick oven. “Artigianale” in the restaurant’s name is Italian for “handmade.”

I first went to Da Filippo a couple months month ago with a friend living in El Poblado, who recommended the restaurant and said it’s his favorite pizzeria in El Poblado. Since then, I have returned twice, as Da Filippo has good food.

This restaurant in El Poblado has good pizzas and also a number of other good Italian dishes on the menu. Note the above photo is courtesy of Da Filippo.

The chef of the restaurant is Diego Vásquez. And all the items on the menu are reportedly the result of a search for products that were carried out for two years by Diego Vásquez from Bogotá and Luigi Gaudenzi from Antioquia.

The concept of the restaurant is to make all its Italian food in a wood-burning oven. Nothing is prepared on a stove, grill or otherwise. And all the ingredients used at this restaurant are of very high quality.

All 12 pizzerias listed above in my opinion have better pizza than the big pizza chains in Medellín like Domino’s, Jeno’s, Papa John’s, Pizza Doble Pizza or Pizzas Piccolo.

Also, we included Da Filippo in our list of the 13 best pizza places in Medellín.

In addition, in my opinion, Papa John’s has the best pizza out of the big pizza delivery chains in Colombia. But all 12 of the above independent pizzerias we have looked at in detail have better pizzas than Papa John’s and the other big pizza chains in Colombia.
