Harden's says

Taking over the former Soho site of Patisserie Valerie is the second branch of the popular pizzeria.

“Outstanding pizzas” live up to the highest expectations at the London outposts of a Neapolitan original going back five generations and 150 years (even if these days they merrily break late founder Michele Condurro’s commandment that only two types of pizza are allowed, the Marinara and the Margherita). The Naples flagship became a place of post-divorce pilgrimage following Elizabeth Gilbert’s 2006 bestseller ‘Eat Pray Love’.

The “outstanding pizzas”“huge, delicious and authentically Neapolitan” – win top marks for the two London outposts of a Naples original dating back 150 years, which featured in Elizabeth Gilbert’s global bestseller ‘Eat Pray Love’. The toppings are “mostly traditional”, with some “interesting combinations and extras”. Don’t be misled by the “plain exterior, which makes it look like all the cheap restaurants and snack places along Baker Street” – this branch and its Soho sibling are “very good indeed”.

“Amazing, authentic pizzas”“straight out of Naples” – are the USP at these Soho and Baker Street outposts of a Neapolitan business that traces its origins back to 1870 and which featured in Elizabeth Gilbert’s global hit ‘Eat Pray Love’. The newer Soho venue, on the former site of Patisserie Valerie, is a “wonderful dining space”. Top Tip: “the two Naples original pizzas (Marinara and Margherita) are the best”.

The London franchise of the 19th-century Neapolitan pizzeria that featured in the film ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ is a “buzzy, noisy” crowd-pleaser in touristy Baker Street that serves “delicious and massive pizzas”.

"Fabulous pizza place. Large, great crust, filled with toppings. Excellent taste. I remember having great times here when it was Patisserie Valerie. And now I'll be going back for delicious pizzas."
