Hanoians rejoice, Pizza 4P’s has opened a brand-new location in the capital. Down south, the Japanese-owned pizza joint is something of a local institution.
It’s one of the only restaurants in the city where reservations are a must; the dining area is packed from midday through to the evening, and even international media has picked up on the pizza-making outfit’s greatness.
In Hanoi, owner Yosuke Masuko, plans to carry on the good name of Pizza 4Ps while also paying homage to the capital’s Old Quarter neighbourhood. For his second location, now in its soft opening at 24 Ly Quoc Su, Masuko enlisted architect Shunri Nishizawa to create the perfect space for 4Ps.
The result is a thoughtful combination of old and new. To start, Nishizawa kept the original facade of Hanoi’s 4P’s location, which was once a printing factory. The architect honoured the memory of the old structure by featuring over-scaled elements like chimneys and courtyards indoors. With handmade wood-fired ovens and homemade cheeses, the restaurant serves not only classic Neapolitan Pizzas, but also original Asian fusion pizzas with local fresh ingredients. For dining with your friends, family, or partner, they have different types of tables for different occasions.
