In our Pizzeria Kota, the soft scent of smoke and the warmth of the fire invites you to relax. After an active day outdoors, you just need to have quick and tasty food. We combine classic Italian flavours and traditional Lappish ingredients into tasty pizzas. Come as you are; there’s no need to fancy clothes or makeup. It’s better to have comfortable casual clothes because you might have a little scent of smoke as a reminder of your visit.
