“Food and drinks go together” decided the owners of some local bar in Yekaterinburg and within a few months turned it into a stylish restaurant called Yaziky. The founders really played around with the name of this place in its design, the walls and the wood-fired pizza stove are all covered in fire flames, or “yaziki” in Russian.

This restaurant launched in 2016, but it didn’t take too long for Yaziki to win the appreciation of its customers. You will never find this place empty: gourmands come here for mouthwatering pizzas and focaccias, beer lovers order the rare local draft “Berezovsky” and the Instagram addicts can snap selfies with the surrealistic graffiti on the walls or with the huge oven – the symbol of the place.

The oven in the middle of the dining area is not at all a decoration — the place is famous for its wood-fired pizzas. More than ten varieties of pizzas to try: from usual margaritas to the “Texas BBQ”, the specialty of this restaurant. You can order a full portion or by slice, let your hunger talk. In either case the preparation never takes more than 20 min.

Yaziki is not just a pizza place. There are also pastas, salads and even soups, so you won’t get bored with the menu even if you come here again and again.

The only thing left over from the restaurant’s “bar” past is the self-service: there are no waiters to take your order, you will have to go to the bar counter yourself.
