Designing a pizzeria is a labor of love.
Whether you’re aiming for a modern, eclectic feel or one that reminds you of standing on a stool in your grandma’s kitchen, the pieces of your restaurant’s design need to fit together like a puzzle. Everything from lighting to seating to wall color and flooring needs to reflect the theme—and the feeling—you want your pizzeria to portray to customers.
Let’s look at how five pizzerias around the world have designed their spaces; the examples here may inspire you to add a new design element or two to your own pizzeria.
