What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Pietro’s Pizzas are amazing. You will never have better, even in Italy! Do yourself a favour and visit but make sure you book!

I went here on Valentine's Day after several months of anticipation and it did not disappoint! The atmosphere was really warm and cosy, and although it was small, it felt very independent and charming. The food was delicious. I had a pizza and it was...More

Honestly the best pizza we've had in a long time - super fresh and delicious and great value to boot too! Would definitely recommend to every veggie/vegan I know. We'll definitely be returning in the near future for scrummy pizza
