I've been here over 2 dozen times. Simply the best pizza in London. Remember it gets full quickly so best to go in and put your name down and wait in the Red Lion next door.

Definitely the best pizzas in West London. They owner is very friendly, and the staff are always smiling. Don't be fooled by the tiny seating areas they have, this place is a must-try if you are in the area. The owner recommended me to try something simple, which I did, and a simple margeritha was heavenly amazing.

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!

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
