Which one is correct? ‘Pizzeria’ or ‘Pizzaria’?

I saw both pizzeria and pizzaria were used on websites. I just wonder which one is the correct spelling. Or is it different countries spell it differently? Also, the plural forms are they pizzerias and pizzarias? Thanks.

    “Pizzeria” is the correct one, because it’s a store (“-ria”) where you make “pizze” (that’s “pizzas” in Italian). It’s pronounced “pee-tseh-ree-ah” in standard Italian, and if you wanted more than one pizzeria, that’s “pizzerie” (“pee-tseh-ree-eh”).

    Pizzeria is the correct one. Pizzaria is wrong.

    Kelly is right abour the plural being pizzerie.

    In Spanish speaking countries they probably use the word “Pizzerias”.

    The plural of pizza is pizze (or pizzas in English). So a pizzeria is a place were lots of pizzas (pizze) are made. Hence: a pizzeria and not a pizzaria.

    Arnie’s has a fabulous ring to it. People also like a family business, and a home town spot with a home town family name. Arnie’s sounds great!
