Really good pizza for a right price. Never thought to find so much good pizza in London. Familiar atmosphere, not to many seats, probably you'll wait before taking a table, but really great!

Decided to try 2 pizza's from this place to utter disappointment as the prosciutto cotto ham and the Neapolitan Salame were exactly the same in the 2 different pizza's (how could two different meat products be the same).Also both pizza's were burnt and the crusts tasted extremely bitter which was not a joy to eat! The sauce was mediocre and... More

One of my favorite canteens in London. I am lucky enough not to live far off and to enjoy their wood oven cooked pizzas quite regularly. The atmosphere is great, makes us feel being in a far away country called Italy. The menu is basic but provides a nice variety of pizzas, and a few classic Italian desserts. It is... More

Santa Maria Pizzeria is a gem of a place with truly Italian pizza made with the secret recipe that makes the dough base elastic and hollow round the edges. Cooked in a wood-fired oven, the pizzas come out with that deliciously tangy carbon coating. The range of pizzas is excellent (we had the Napoli and the basic Santa Maria with... More

I am enthusiast of sourdough bread and pizza, and have spent some time living in Naples, so based on reviews I had seen I was keen to try this pizzeria. The restaurant wasn't busy when I visited so I was seated right away and didn't have to wait to order and eat. The staff were chatty and pleasant and the... More

I am quite simply a huge fan of this restaurant and go here as often as i possibly can. As highlighted by some other reviewers, it's a bit on the small side, so diners are sometimes forced to wait for a table (they don't take reservations). However, they're more than happy to take your name and number and call you... More

Went here with my partner on a very rainy evening. Upon entering the restaurant we saw there were no other diners since it was still quite early. We were both shocked when the waitress asked us to leave our umbrella outside since it was wet (I had shaken it off). I cannot believe that I would be asked to leave... More

Friends recommended this place and we were aware of the no reservation policy but after arriving and been promised a table in 10min after 20min we were told to go home and they would call us!
