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!”.
