Great location and nice pizza

During the weekend I took a lunch in this simple and friendly place. The pizzeria was quite busy, however the waitress immediately asked us the order and the pizzas came in maximum 15 minutes. The portion was big and the ingredients were fresh and tasty. For a pizza, coke and a coffee, you... read more

I've wanted to come here for some time as I live down the road and it's always busy on the weekend so thought hey, it must be good! My partner and I walked in and we weren't greeted, if anything ignored. My partner went to the toilet and I just stood by the door waiting to be seated no one... More

I'm a Coeliac from Brighton and always manage to find plenty of gluten free places there. London can be more of a challenge but a friend introduced me to this place a couple of years ago and it's definitely my favourite. I like the cozy corner tables and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. Their gluten free bases are... More

Food really tasty and good value- especially the pizzas, which are huge and delicious. Some good deals as well on during weekdays- e.g. free glass of wine with one of the specials. Have been here a few times and the atmosphere used to be nice- friendly and relaxed. However, the last few times I have visited, this has been ruined... More

Just ordered 3 different pizzas to take-away. They we picked up on time and eaten within 10 minutes. All were really dry, and had hardly ANY toppings. I love true Italian thin and basic pizza, but this was not it. Extremely disappointed.

Not joking. Pizza was so dry and flat you could use it as a frisbee. I had a pesto pizza with mozzarella di bufala and it was tasteless. No wonder it was 'cheap'. It was very busy when we arrived and did not know whom to ask to get two beers (barman could not take orders). Uninspiring commercial music -... More

We visit Stingray at lest once a month and we never left disappointed in the last 5 years. For us, this is the best local restaurant around. Trying their Tiramisu is a must!

The staff bent over backwards to accommodate our party at a very busy time. The food was cheap, of great quality and generous portions. The gluten free pizza is unsurpassed.
