The tomato sauce is is the worst thing i have tasted since i tried giant snails in Nigeria, absolutely disgusting. The dough is almost as bad as the sauce, not mature, very low quality flour and almost like a biscuit. The bottle of olive oil is filled with pomace oil. Very disappointed, cant believe i spent 200 NOK on this.

Hello Abid, thank you for taking your time to write a review. I'm a bit curious as to what department you have been to? We do not offer olive oil to go with the pizza, and the one we do offer is from Italy. More

Came with a friend, we ordered one pizza each and shared a bottle of sparkling. Plenty of food, very interesting toppings with truffle, reindeer, 5 different cheeses, good salami etc. Thin crust pizza, cooked skillfully. I am sure there are cheaper pizza places around, but imho it was well worth the money. We only ate half of the pizza each,... More

We were six friends there for dinner in the Lofthus Lights in Torshov. The dough and the ingredients are good, it is a pity that the service is not as good as pizza. Four of us arrived a little late (At 19.20 having a table reserved at 19:00) while the other two were on time. We were ignored for a... More

The service was so sloppy that I cannot give more than three. The pizza is truly very nice but throughout the meal we had to struggle to get the attention of the waiters. From the moment we came in the door, towards the end, when we had to ask a waiter two times for the check. Work on the service,... More

The Pizza and the restaurant itself is very nice. A bit outside the center of the city but only 20 mins with the bus or tram. The prices are very high for a pizza, and seems to have increased the last few years.

Ate an Italian pizza here with a buddy. Great food (best pizza I have tasted in Oslo) and good service. Each week they have a new special pizza called "Dagens pizza". I highly recommend this pizza. The restaurant also has a nice athmosphere indoors and outside.

Top of the line pizza and cozy atmosphere. A tad too loud music made chatting quite strenuous. Come early to sit outside in the sundown.

Lofthus samvirkelag is situated a short tram ride outside Oslo city center in a beautiful art deco building, but it's well worth the journey! I've tried lot's of pizzas aroundt the world, am mostly satisfied, but rarely blown away. Lofthus blew me away the first time I visited and had made me return as often as possible. Okay, it's not...

This is together with Mimmos The best and most expensive pizza in Oslo . but the time they give you for take away is no where near realistic (20 min is rather 45) Also the boy who served us the last two times really should consider something else than service occupation. Sorry to be so critical- but the taste still... More

Lofthus Samvirkelag takes the concept of city life up a few notches. It is a bakery during the day and in the afternoon it turns into a restaurant. The pizzas are great and so is their coffee and bread.
