Their pizza is out of this world. Every time me and my boyfriend go there we're very happy. We also had take away and its always on point. Worth every money. I see people complaining about staff but I've been there so many times and never had any issues. Every time I have friends over who are foreigners, I'd bring... More

This restaurant is a bit more secluded than most, Ealing has a great array of restaurants and this one of the best. It is small and charming, and offers fantastic pizzas at a good price. Some of their topping choices can be poor, with some offering too many pickled varieties which creates a strong vinegar taste for a pizza. Otherwise... More

Best Pizza I've had in London this far. It's a really small place in Ealing and gets busy in the weekends but well worth the effort.

Seriously one of the best pizzas (& tiramisu!) I've ever eaten. Really cosy place and tables quite tightly packed in but adds to the atmosphere. Service was really good too, I made a mistake with the pizza I ordered but they offered to take it back and make a new one for me which was with me within 5 minutes.... More

I love the truffle flavoured pizza. It is made in a minute in their wood oven and the taste is authentic. It is often crowded and difficult to get a table. It is a tiny restaurant with no frills. You are squished in like sardines but that all adds to the ambiance and you are happy when you get to... More

Typical pizzeria. little tables. Medium comfort. Unremarkable ambience. Efficient service. Pizza baked in a wood-burning stove. Good, thin and light pizza dough. Garlic Foccaccia and pizza tasty. Good value for money. Fresh orange juice not homemade. Warning : No parking possibility around, not a all saturday lunchtime ! (resident only till 4 pm).

I was there last Friday and was amazed by the number of groups queuing up!!! What's wrong with taking reservations? Anyhow is the pizza good? It certainly is. Is it the best in London? Not exactly. Personally the best dough for me is at Figli del Vesuvio in South London hands down. Having said that I will give Santa Maria... More

Tried a 'fantastic pizza restaurant' last night. Supposed to be the best pizza in London... Not! It was alright, both #excellentcompany and I thought their pizza was bland (considering I asked to have chilli added on mine - there was still no heat). The dough base was soggy and the staff, one young guy in particular could not get a... More

Generally speaking I love pizza and I love trying all the independent pizzeria's London has to offer. Having said that, Santa Maria offers the best and most authentic pizzas I have ever had in London. Once you've had a Santa Maria pizza there's no going back! The Santa Rosa pizza is particularly excellent.
