Whenever I crave thin-crust pizzas that are light, I come to Trevia Pizza di Roma. This place is super easy to find with it being on the main street heading towards Gyeongridan. This place is very popular during peak hours. In fact, because it’s so popular, the place gets full quickly, and the atmosphere can become slightly unpleasant with all the background noise. Not to mention, the restaurant also begins to feel very cramped and stifling. I can’t help but feel like I’m in a fast food joint during those times! That’s why I try to come here when it’s not peak hours, or I opt to do a takeaway.
Service here is very basic — meaning it’s a self-serving restaurant. You go up to the counter, order your food, and get a buzzer. While you wait, you then go to the self-serving station to get your utensils, plates, paper napkins, water, and pickled veggies. As soon as your buzzer goes off, you go pick up your food and then enjoy!
On the menu, there are a variety of pizzas, salad, lasagna, and bread sets. They also sell drinks like ades and sodas. You can order a “slice” of pizza, which is one-third the size of their whole pizza, or you can opt to order a whole one. Whenever I come here with a friend, we usually get two different slices of pizzas, a salad, and a bread set if we’re really hungry.
I typically get the Siciliana because I like how it comes with no cheese. Plus, the combination of olives, capers, anchovies, olive oil, and tomato sauce rocks my socks. I don’t miss cheese when I get this pizza because all the other toppings are full of flavour. If I want cheese pizzas, I recommend their Quattro Formaggi or their Margherita pizzas. Their salad is also great with its seasonal veggies, fresh mozzarella cheese, and balsamic or lemon dressing. I also like their bread set; I even get their breads to go sometimes because I’m very fond of their focaccia. However, while everything tastes good, I’ve noticed that sometimes my pizza comes out lukewarm.
Despite the lukewarm pizzas, I’ve brought friends and families here many times, and they all enjoyed their experience and found the food very palatable. This is usually my go-to place to for a casual meal, and a place I can enjoy a light pizza or a salad if I were to eat a bit healthier! As long as you go when it’s not peak hours, and as long as you don’t mind the self-service, this is a place to try at least once.

From Noksapyeong Station, go out exit 2 and go straight until you reach the underpass. Cross it and take the right exit. Then keep going straight, passing Standing Coffee and Chansbros Coffee shops, and you will see a CU Mart. Trevia is right next to it.
