We hadn't booked and so waited for a table in the upstairs bar, which I found noisy and unpleasant. The food was ok; the much praised pizza was good but not the best and was swimming in oil. We had some nibbles to start and these weren't great (olives over seasoned, padron peppers again too oily). The wine was overpriced.... More

Superb, crispy, tasty pizza. The bar upstairs has a great atmosphere and does great cocktails. Downstairs, everything on the menu I've tried has been excellent. It's crazy busy, but the lady who normally takes care of the seating does a great job. One of my favourite places in London!

Great place for lunch or dinner. Food is very good, seasonal and very consistent year in and year out. Good value for money. One of the best pizzas in London. Very nice buzzy atmosphere. Service is friendly and prompt.

I will start by saying that it's one of the few places in the West End that actually has a wood oven. So pizza tastes GOOD. It's thin, they are skimping a bit on the topics but god does it taste properly. Also the tagliata is very very nice, as are the starters. It is usually packed so arrive early.... More

Got a pizza to take away one night from the Oak. We went for the Stagioni and the pizza was fantastic but there was hardly any toppings on the pizza. Slightly disappointing!

Truly excellent pizza - perfect thin crust base and good quality toppings. Starters (venison carpaccio and salmon carpaccio) were average, I wouldn't bother again. Staff friendly, especially the lady maitre d' who was very accommodating to our rather noisy group. Pretty dark lighting - don't go if you haven't been eating your carrots recently - and tables squished together a... More

Pizza truly to die for and I say this as a born and bred Italian who's had her fair share of fab pizzas in her lifetime! Turned up with a friend at 9 on Friday night, the super efficient Lucia took our names down and we went upstairs for drinks until10. We didn't have to wait long for two incredible... More

In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last.
