I came here for lunch with my son and his friend .It was okay, nothing to write home about and am at a loss as to why it would be heralded as the best pizza in London . It does have a lovely atmosphere and good service., It is tiny so always busy!

I had bruschetta followed by San Gennaro (pizza with black olives, capers and anchovies). The bruschetta was good but the pizza was truly delicious, my taste buds are still tingling. My friends had the calzone and San Francesco which they also loved, along with garlic pizza bread and parmigiana to start. We also had two Peronis and a glass of... More

If you are looking for Neapolitan pizza, then this is the place to go. Pizza made by Neapolitan pizzaioli using the best of the best Naples has to offer. It is small and they do not take reservations so if you want to dine in here and it's busy, just give your name and hop on over to the Red... More

The pizza are good but it is not the best pizza in London as reviews say. The worst thing is how you feel be treated for waiters. I understand it is a small and busy place, but when you go to have dinner to any place is to enjoy the meal and spend a great time eating. That is difficult... More

After waiting for a table we were seated out the back of the tiny cramped restaurant and served promptly. After eating our soggy pizzas we were asked to leave as we were approaching the 45 minute time limit - even though there were three vacant tables right next to us! I informed the waiter upon leaving the premises that we... More

Apparently, this is the best pizza in London. For the taste - probably yes. But the cheese was slipping off our Napoli Pizza (the one with anchovies) like a lolly in the sun. Although the place looked charming on the outside, and we knew it was small, it just felt a little too pokey inside, yet eating outside would mean... More

This is a local gem so I am almost tempted not to share it so it gets even harder to get a table. Its the best pizza I have had in London and as good as anything in the UK. And very modestly priced. Best tip is go early leave your phone number and have a drink next door in... More

I have been to Santa Maria quite a few times before and the hype is true: the pizzas really are that good. However, the negative reviews are also true: the service is appalling. I recently went along with three other people for a Wednesday evening meal out. I didn’t mind the 20 wait (the pub next door, The Red Lion,... More

I can recommend that tasty pizzas everyone !:) and I was totally shocked when waiter brought my order in 5 min , which is a big plus. Maybe the place is so small (just few tables) but atmosphere and taste recompense that. Sure will come back :)
