Here’s the kind of news we need today.
Cork’s newest pizza spot is now open on Parnell Place and they’re promising sensationally good slices and an affordable price.
SANO Cork is the fourth restaurant in the chain owned by twin brothers Ray and Tony McHugh, who came up with the concept after they visited Naples.
“All pizzas in Naples are made using sourdough base, and cooked in traditional stone ovens at 500 degrees,” they explain.
“Not only were these pizzas delicious, they had a much lower salt content.”
The other thing that struck the twins was how affordable the pizzas were – everywhere they went in Naples, the pizzerias were jammed packed with people, out enjoying fine food at affordable prices.

They set off to open a Neapolitan pizzeria in Dublin, purchasing two traditional stone ovens directly from the manufacturer in Naples. Not long after, they found a site and opened their first Sano Pizza in 2018 in Temple Bar, Dublin.
Now, with slice shops already in Ranelagh and in Glasgow, SANO Cork is open at 14 Parnell Place, Cork City.
According to the menu, you can get a 12″ SANO Margherita for €8.90 and a Diavola (spicy salami from Calabria, fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato sugo) for €11.50.
Throw in a glass of wine for €6 and you’re talkin’ a keenly priced dinner out in town.
