The pizza is obviously not italian style but tasty while the apple pie was delicious! The view from outside is quite pleasant.

Pizza was ok, good relative to the other pizzas I've had in India. Nice location with a good terrace. Portions were a bit small. Great apple pie.

We arrived to Varanasi after a long train ride, and we were hungry. We'd read about this place here on Tripadvisor and decided to try something other than Indian for the first time on this 15 days holiday. What a disappointment the food was. Small pizzas - about the size of a small dinner place, thin crust - which we... More

On the banks of ganga,this place is quite famous,have been there many times. The food is just average. Have tried mostly pizzas and its not good. The crust is old which they serve. just an average place.

We visited this restaurant on its opening day (had been closed from flooding) and they were just serving woodfired pizzas and apple pie - perfect combo if you ask me! The large pizza was a decent size for sharing, delicious and fresh. The apple pie was equally as good - just like mum makes at home. Our waiter was super... More

I was invited to this nice little pizzeria on the bank of the Ganges by a local friend who is a medical doctor. It was a nice afternoon in March, and nothing could beat dining alfresco style with family and friends at such a relaxed location. A word about the location is in order here. Pizzeria Vaatika Café, while sitting... More

nice place; worth chilling at .. you can see the ghat and the river languidly pass you by, while you enjoy amazingly fresh pizza, pasta and drink down lots of cold coffee.. and whatever else you take a fancy to. Very reasonably priced as well.

Thank PrinceAnuraagMishra
