“The stunning sourdough pizzas are a proper treat” at these “fast and delicious local favourites” which are a “great addition to the burgeoning London real pizza scene”. There’s a “particularly interesting menu with a variety of crusts including charcoal (looks burnt, tastes like chewy pizza heaven)”. The original Islington branch now has an adjoining home-made pasta specialist, Berto, from founders Claudio Vescovo and Gianluca D’Angelo, while the group’s sixth pizzeria opened on Balham High Road in autumn 2021.

“The queuing is now almost part of the trip” to the “frenetic-but-we-love-it” Holloway original: “a terrific local pizzeria that’s always packed” thanks to its “inventive, delicious chewy bases (including charcoal dough), generously finished off with a variety of flavoursome toppings”, and washed down with “great local beers”. Its sibling, north of Brook Green, is in a much less happening location, but already winning feedback as “a great addition to the area, with friendly staff; and where everything on the menu is fresh, and portions are generous”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
