Summary

“Consistently fantastic pizza, with interesting toppings and a nicely textured base” have created a major buzz around this independent Neapolitan trio, which started out in Ealing before opening off Fulham Broadway and in Fitzrovia. It’s still the W5 original that incites most fuss – “a small cafe/bistro, it’s always crowded you can end up sitting in a rather tight, alley-like room” although in recent times they’ve also colonised the Red Lion next door so you can “set yourself down at the pub and tuck in with more space and vibe”.

Summary

“The best pizza in London” is a claim that’s regularly made for the “tight on space, and always crowded” Ealing original of this small group (which “has expanded into the Red Lion pub next door”) – “the ingredients are painstakingly sourced and the attention to detail on the dough is second to none!” With the chain expanding constantly, however (they’ve just opened in Fitzrovia), overall marks support those who feel “the pizzas are good… perhaps not as good as the reputation”.
