“Neapolitan influences are evident in the choice of ingredients, and the wood-burning oven makes for good, chewy, charred crusts, unlike most high-street pizzas” – so say fans of this global chain, whose HQ is indeed in Naples. Not everyone is impressed, though, and ratings are dragged down by those who feel it’s merely an “everyday” choice: “OK for a bog-standard group, but not great”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Crikey ! How misleading. A walk-in that was close to a walkout. The presence of many customers and Italian being spoken tempted us in to this place. Generally, these would be ‘good’ signs. How wrong one can be. Tables - too many, too close together. Service - the standard casual, student-day-politeness but no knowledge of what is being served at all. Service 2 - How long does it take to make a pizza? A very long time in this place. Everything seems to be in place for a decent meal. Proper pizza oven: ( allegedly) big on ‘quality Italian ingredients: even ‘learn to make pizza lessons?. Food - Pizza needed longer in oven (panic removal because it took so long?). Pasta - Ok but nothing special at all (the dish lids that double as a grater are an interesting idea but when the piece of cheese was like a school eraser it is redundant). In Italy this place would either have been ignored or bombed. I thought I’d never say this but the thin crust from both Dominoes and Pizza Hut are better …. How sad."
