We are living in difficult times around the world with the spread of COVID-19. So far, the situation in Cuba is not critical, but the Cuban government has already taken several measures to minimize the impact of the virus, such as the closure of borders and schools. All large cultural activities have been suspended until further notice and many restaurants, bars and other establishments have temporarily closed.
Although quarantine has not been declared, the Cuban authorities encourage people to stay at home and avoid unnecessary physical contact. So to make the lockdown more pleasant, here is a list of Havana’s 5 best food delivery restaurants.
- Nero di Sepia
They don’t specialize in food delivery, but recently they added home delivery to their service. This is one of the best Italian restaurants in town. It offers a diverse range of pizzas, all cooked in a wood oven, as well as numerous pastas. The quality of the ingredients in all of the dishes is notable.

- Ring Pizza
This is a cheaper option than the previous ones and their pizzas are extremely popular among Cubans. They are dedicated exclusively to home delivery; you have probably seen their motorcycles circulating around the city. Their pizzas are good enough, with lightly charred, thin and airy crusts, and the outer ring filled with cheese.
