“Basilico- Tower Bridge Road”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Pizza was tasty but slightly cold on delivery. I'm not sure how they can justify charging £10+ for a small 10 inch pizza though. They need to be much more competitive.

“Ridiculous with delivery pizzas.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Today I ordered a 18" Roma pizza to be delivery, I wait 55 minute and comes completely uncooked so I call to complain and the manager apology, I ask for another pizza and hi ask me to give back the uncooked pizza, I wait another 55 minute for a new pizza and when come was missing some ingredient and cold. Plus they didn't give me any discount or something. Very bad expiriance.

“Talk ain't cheap, it's expensive”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

The website talks the talk and the and menu looks good but the pizza itself (18" Roma) was truly appalling: Burned and black on both top and bottom, stone cold on delivery, almost no cheese on the topping, stingy on the prosciutto (estimate maybe 2 slices ripped up to be distributed over the whole thing), and covered in a sea of rocket leaves which had the gritty texture to the bite of not having been washed properly.

Like most people I love good pizza, and a thin, chewy base that isn't drowning in cheap ingredients is a very admirable goal. But it's all well and good talking about the high quality of ingredients and authenticity of flavour as long as it's delivered. It's just not good enough when the execution is so stingy and so lazy.

I will not be using this company for pizza in the future.

“Best delivery pizza joint in London.”
Reviewed March 24, 2011

Delivery only but who cares - that's the point! Perfect thin bases, not overloaded with crap topping... great pizza.
