Having taken Manchester by storm (and then Leeds, Birmingham and Liverpool), this Ancoats-based chain is to land in Soho in the second half of 2021, on the site of a former Wahaca. The capital has its fair share of Neapolitan pizzerias, so it will be interesting to see how many waves are made by this new arrival from 'up North.
Harden's survey result
“Excellent value and decent pizzas” using ingredients imported from Naples win a solid thumbs up – if not quite full-on raves – from fans of this Mancunian import, on the Soho site recently vacated by Wahaca (which nowadays is expanding countrywide). A Birmingham branch is in the pipeline, and more locations around the capital are on the wishlist.
This smash hit from Manchester’s hip Ancoats enclave finally arrived in the Big Smoke (via Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham) in mid-2021, taking over the heart-of-Soho premises that till recently housed a branch of Wahaca. There’s nowt fancy about the pizza selection (marinara, margherita…) – the craft is in the Naples-imported ingredients (tomatoes grown on the slopes of Vesuvius, yada, yada). No survey feedback as yet, but the social buzz about the place suggests it’s well worth trying.

Rudy's Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The pizzas were good but not terrific, the service was fine but not great, the ambience was a bit so-so."
"Great place for a quick pre-theatre meal - service was really friendly and the pizza arrived very fast. Pizza was pretty decent if not outstanding."
