FIRE AND ICE in Kathmandu for great Italian food especially pizzas and apple pie mode that you would never expect to get in Nepal.There is classical music playing, candlelit and travelers from all over the world. The pizza is great and the atmosphere is relaxing and special. A popular western haunt, and for good reason. Serves traditional Italian-style stone-baked pizzas, which are delicious. Everyone knows where it is: on the left side of the main road into Thamel from the Palace Museum, next to a temple under Himalayan Bank.In 1988 a Neapolitan lady and her family arrived in wonderful Kathmandu, Nepal. That spectacular country at the edge of the top of the world?? They liked it so much they decided to stay on. Fire and Ice Pizzeria first opened its doors in January 1995. It immediately became a very popular restaurant amongst travellers, climbers and local residents as the place to meet for a morning cup of Italian espresso, or later on in the day to share stories and travel tales with friends whilst savouring delicious pizzas, pastas, organic salads, desserts and even a Grappa after dinner.
