This is the best pizza restaurant I have found in London so far (the other one I like is Franco Manca). Still Santa Maria is a bit different as it is a small restaurant in the west london (ealing) away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The service is very good and 'Italian' in nature! Pizzas are fresh... More

The service was good, quite friendly and quick. The pizza was ok, just average I'd say. It was a bit burnt. Definitely not the best in London like they claim. Franco Manca is the same or even better in my opinion. San Gennaro in battersea and Donna Margherita in Clapham Junction are much better than Santa Maria. Ps- The "at... More

That is true what they say about good things - they really comes in small packages. Santa Maria is a very small, cozy restaurant, but for sure it serves the best pizza in west London! Very good value for the food - as for the party of four we've paid around £45. Service is very quick and friendly too. I... More

I visit here at least once a month. By far the best Pizza in London - would have to travel to Italy in-order to find any better. It is a little cozy inside, so be prepared to sit very close and be able to hear the conversations of your neighbors. However, this is a small price to pay for the... More

I just moved to the area and can't believe such a delicious pizzeria is right on my doorstep. A little gem in ealing, well worth a visit for a taste of authentic Italian pizza.

Santa Maria is a small pizzeria tucked away in a nice Ealing neighbour. As they claim to serve the "tradition neapolitan pizza" and being myself Neapolitan I decided to give it a try and see if the pizzeria really lives up to its promise. The place doesn't accept phone reservations so when I showed up with a couple of friends... More

Brilliant pizza to eat in or take away served by a lovely Italian crew. Tiny restaurant so getting a table can be hard and they don't take reservations. Top tip is put your name on the list for a table and head to the Red Lion next door for a drink until your table comes free.

Google search for "Best Pizza in London" lands me up in Santa Maria Pizzeria. Its an atmospheric walk from Ealing Broadway station past the old Ealing studio on a tree lined road. The place looks unassuming but the pizza is anything other than that. Mine came (in literally 5 minutes - wonder how they do that) with generous helpings of... More
