Great Pizzeria in a tucked away location

Went here with friends, great pizza - excellent thin crust and tasty toppings. I went for the Buffala which was very good, friendly staff and good value. Not on the main drag but can be found in a side road called Boswell street very close to GOSH. I've been to their other branches in camden and... read more

Met friends here after work on a Tuesday, it's a small quaint restaurant but the food was delicious. It's a tiny little place but it has a real homily feel about it, and I believe it's a family fun business. Whilst we were there there were about 4/5 different people that came to collect their pizza, which means they are... More

Had a lovely & tasty dinner with colleagues, enjoying Pizza and Calamari around the table. Would definitely come again.

Be careful when you order a special at lunchtime. Some of the soft drinks are not part of the deal and you will find this out when you get the bill.

Nice little place in Bloomsbury. Pizza was quite good and worth getting. Risotto was expensive and not particularly tasty. Not a fancy place, good for takeout in the area.

Traditional Italian restaurant. Three of us had pasta which we all enjoyed and devoured. Last person had the Caesar Salad which he didn't enjoy. But who orders a Caesar salad in an Italian restaurant? Tiramisu was also very nice. Good prices. Good service. Just lacking a bit of wow factor. An enjoyable meal, for three!

I saw the place while I took a little bit smaller road on my way to hotel and came later to have a dinner. I was looking for something else than a tourist trap and this definitely is something else. It was delicious italian food made properly. Also, the atmosphere was friendly. We had a simple late dinner with main... More

I frequented La Porchetta when I studied abroad in London, and to be honest, it was the dinner I most looked forward to upon returning to London a year later on vacation. The atmosphere is intimate and somehow quaint and modern-relaxed simultaneously, and the staff are attentive without being overbearing. The food is the real star. I'll admit to not... More

We just came here for some pizza as that's what we were craving and it was very good. The crust was thin and crispy and it had good flavor. We also had cones of gelato since it was too tempting to pass up. Very casual place and the service was good. I saw other people ordering different dishes and those... More
