The Independent Pizza Company opened in the summer of 1984 and recently celebrated 25 years in business in Drumcondra. In 2002 we moved a few doors down the road to a bigger custom built location from where we now operate.

The Independent Pizza Company is a casual neighbourhood pizza restaurant where you can relax, chill out and enjoy yourself without feeling too worried about the size of the bill at the end! Our concept is to deliver top quality Pizza, at reasonable prices, in an unpretentious and casual setting. Our Pizza style is American – light crisp bases with traditional & contemporary topping combinations that suit all tastes.

Most of our menu and, of course, all of our signature pizzas, utilise our stone pizza oven which was imported for us from Washington State in the USA. These pizza ovens are regarded as the best in the world and we believe help us create outstanding pizza bases. Our pizza dough is freshly made every day, on the premises, using just five ingredients: flour, water, yeast and small amounts of salt and sugar.

All ingredients are bought in fresh & prepared in our kitchen unlike other competitors who import frozen ingredients.

We buy the best produce available and we have excellent relationships with our suppliers- some of whom we have been dealing with for 25 years. Our baked ham for pizzas is from Cork, our pepperoni is made in Dundalk, Hicks in Dun Laoghaire supply sausages and our chicken wings are from Kettle Foods in Fermanagh. All our vegetables are delivered daily from local suppliers and our Irish & European cheeses come from Glenealy Foods in Dublin.

We also provide a great take away service and pizza take & bake service where you can order your pizza par-cooked ready to finish off in your oven when required. We operate a 10% loyalty discount for take-away pizzas where the 10th pizza purchased on your loyalty card is free!

Food was great, the girl serving our tables was very pleasant. The only issue we had was that I booked for a table for 11 people, 2 weeks in advance. On arrival we were seated in 2 booths. The manager said he had told menu pages that it would be 2 seperate tables. We only found this out when we arrived. We were very dissapointed as we were looking forward to going out as one group. We would have went elsewhere if we had know we weren't going to be sitting together.

We all descending on this restaurant for lunch for a birthday celebration. The group was big and all hungry. The food was great and all but one meal came promptly... the staff fed us well. 2 course meal with a drink and a cupan tae after, €23, not too shabby.

This has been a regular for us with the kids for years - it can be a bit hit & miss. This occassion we were seated just inside the door - it's much nicer down the back. The pizzas are top notch but on this occassion I felt a bit rushed - the service was a little too fast. However they very kindly changed the wine we chose when I realised it wasn't what we wanted even though there was nothing actually wrong with it - kudos there! I will of course be back - book early to get one of the booths down the back if possible!

Nice pizzeria. Tasty and good choice on the menu. Wines by the glass are great, with a pleasant atmosphere in the place generally. Reasonable value. Would go back.

Ate with a friend and her family. Received a warm welcome from the manager. One girl who served us was pleasant whereas the guy who served us should learn how to smile. Food great and tasty and wide choice on menu. I would return again.

No idea why this place is so popular. Although the pizza is cooked in a wood oven it doesn't taste it. The bases are flat and almost biscuity, nothing like the proper pizzas you get in Italy. Very rude staff, they brought us the wrong food not once but twice, didn't apologise and charged us for a side order they didn't bring us. Would never go back.

Great pizza and lasagne! The staff could be a bit more friendly when the place gets busy however. The restaurant can sometimes be very stuffy when it gets busy. A great place for food regardless of that however!

Great pizza, nice friendly atmosphere. Maybe slightly overpriced but probably worth it overall. The Chinese Duck pizza is particularly good!

My favorite pizza in Dublin. Great service and good portion sizes. Just be warned it can get busy on weekends and especially on match days so be sure to book. My only problem is the seats are too close together at the back of the restaurant.

Our first port of call anytime we come to Dublin is the Independent Pizza Company.We rang to book a table yesterday evening and requested a front of house seat and even though we were told no guarantees we were lucky enough to get one when we arrived, as I find the back of the restaurant a bit claustraphobic.That is service!!!and all the staff are friendly and efficient. The service is fast. My twin daughters had the garlic bread and ham and sweetcorn pizza, while we had ham,pepperoni and ham and mushroom with the delicious coleslaw. I have been coming to the Indie for the past 22years and the quality and flavour of the food here is hard to beat. The best pizza in Dublin.

I've been there several times, probably the best pizza in Dublin especially the garlic chicken pizza, it was just amazing and tasty. The place was full, no booking but we got a table. The service was a bit slow, but overall I score the food, which was excellent.

The service was fast and efficient, the only improvement would have been a smile! The food was good - great pizzas, good choice of starters and other options, not just pizza. Would go here again if I was in the area. Very good value. Much better than take-away pizza and not much difference in the price! Family friendly, good place for a family lunch or dinner.

Ate here for the first time last night. We were in a hurry and needed a quick bite to eat. The service was quick and friendly. The variety on the menu is excellent and the Value for money is a major high point. You would be lucky to get as nice a pizza from a take away pizza shop for the same prices as they offered here. I've been to alot of restaurants and in most places, you'd be paying at least €12 for a basic pizza. Highly recommend!
