“Skip the ubiquitous PizzaExpress locations and head to this family-run sister to Il Portico” (“owned by the same family”), a few doors down, and opposite Kensington’s new Design Museum. The pizzas (featuring “activated charcoal bases”) are “miles better than the usual”, and they also offer “freshly made pasta and traditional entrees”. Top Tip – “go for the incredibly simple Sicilian deep-fried pizza dough with salt on – then ask why there aren’t east London hipsters selling these!”.

“So much better than the chain alternatives” – this smart three-year-old pizzeria directly opposite the new Design Museum in Kensington “specialises in on-site-produced pizzas… and what pizzas they are, the tastiest ever!”. An offshoot of the family-run Il Portico five doors away, it shares the same “friendly service”.

Directly opposite the new Design Museum in Kensington High Street, this more casual offshoot of the venerable, family-run Il Portico five doors away is two years old. The “fantastic young and enthusiastic staff” “exude Italian hospitality”, and there’s a “short but interesting menu”, majoring in “excellent wood-fired pizza”.
