Unlimited Pizza and Beer Is Back, Baby

Deals Tested: We kick the tires on various food, drink or miscellaneous deals so you don't have to.
Once upon a time, Italian restaurant MammaMia gave out free-flow beer and all-you-can-eat pizza for 98rmb. The beer was Carlsberg and the pizza was cheese and maybe one mushroom. That deal is only myth and legend now. BUT there's a new deal in town over at Sofia, that cozy pizzeria with tall open windows on Anfu Lu, and the thing is -- their pizzas aren't basic.

The Deal: Get 90 minutes of all-you-can-eat pizza, any pizza on the menu, with free-flow Asahi beer for 98rmb from 2pm to 9pm on Saturdays.


Their menu features 70rmb-90rmb 12-inch thin crust pizzas such as pepperoni, Margherita, chicken pesto, heavy meat pizzas, seafood pizzas, vegetarian pizzas, and a lot more. Their 80rmb Nyonya Chicken pizza is nothing to write home about, but its alright, decent toppings, no real complaints. The prosciutto pizza is another story, as prosciutto is pretty much the only topping on the pizza. Skip that if you go.

At the end of my 90 minutes I got through two 12-inch pizzas (you can also get 9inch pizzas) and three beers, which would have cost 205rmb without the deal. The reason that sounds so low is because the Asahi draft is typically 15rmb a glass during their daily happy hour from 2-9pm. Like who are these people? Don't they know you're supposed to bleed customers dry with exorbitant prices for alcohol in this city?

I asked the staff how they make money on the deal. They explained that usually local people partake in it and they don't eat or drink too much. "The two girls that just left threw up on the floor after sharing a pitcher of beer."


But that's not you, so have at it. We apologize if this was your secret go-to on Saturdays. As always be sure to call ahead to confirm the deal is still ongoing. The deal is also available at their Jing'an location.
