San Marzano opens a pretty pizza place in Riyadh

The venue celebrates the sights and sounds of Italy.

Saudi Arabia, it’s time to grab a slice or three at a new pizza place. San Marzano has opened in Laysen Valley, Riyadh, and offers Italian food, drink and vibes. So, grab a seat by the open kitchen and watch the chefs at work. 

San Marzano in Riyadh is inspired by the taste of Italy. The name itself refers to the Italian plum tomato, which is grown specifically in the country near Mount Vesuvius. The tomatoes are also longer and skinnier than regular plum tomatoes.
