Best wood oven pizza with a view - do try apple pie with icecream. You can also give custom toppings of your choice and see pizza being made in front of you. Best time to go after - 8 PM in evening. It is very quite with only river sound.

Went there on my birthday, unfortunately I happened to be a not so fair looking Asian, non Caucasian, all in all not some foreign tourist. All male waiters wouldn't even bat an eye at us. Felt very discriminated. Food was meh, only good thing was the view and the apple pie.

Everyone told me to visit this eatery right on Assi Ghat. It was a great location to see the evening arti plus the wood fired pizza with homemade cheese was wonderful. Topped off with the AMAZING apple pie á la mode made for one of my favorite meals in Varanasi!

The view of the river and the ghat from the place is excellent. The service is attentive and the food is good. The ambience with the small garden is really nice.

Right on the bank of river Ganga, this restaurant located at Assi Ghat provides a beautiful view of river along with natural environment in the presence of several plants. However, the Pizzas are quite expensive. Moreover, they don't offer variety in terms of size of Pizza.

This was a real gem of a place to find. Varanasi is interesting but very busy. After walking along the Ghats we were looking for somewhere for some refreshments.

The outdoor cafe has a great view of the Assi Ghat and its activity. The pizzas and pasta were above average in taste, possibly the best you will get in Varanasi, though not exactly authentic Italian. The food and beverages were a little over priced.

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