“Laid back restaurant, quality pizza”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Great wood-oven cooked pizza with quality toppings. Decent size and tasty base.

If a table is free when you arrive, it's worth having a drink and ordering a platter to start. Staff are really friendly.

“Excellent In So Many Ways”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The first time I visited this restaurant we arrived at 19.15 and left shortly after midnight. The food was perfect, the staff were excellent and the atmosphere was friendly and fun.

I've since been back 4 times and will keep going back. The pricing is excellent and the selection of pizza's with fresh exciting ingredients will ensure you never get bored.

Can't wait for my next Honest Italian Pizza fix!

“great pizza place, not much pasta”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

What a lovely place on the other side of Balhams train tracks. When I say that I mean that it is towards Tooting Bec not Clapham. I wonder if it gets less business because of that? It would be a true shame if so.
We went on a sunny afternoon and set down at the counter which faces the street. the windows were wide open and we could watch people flip flopping by. What a treat.

On top of that the waiter was extremely charming (Italian!!) and the menu was simple and not overrun with too many of the usual Italian choices. There was actually a prominent lack of pasta. only two lasagne dishes and the rest was pizza. And what a lovely crisp and thin pizza it was. I had butternut squash and chilli and my friend had the classic Fiorentina. As a dessert they were offering many choices of gelato.

“Pizza at its best”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Wood fired Pizza ovens are becoming a bit of a trend but who cares, they really do give a better flavour and crispness to Pizza making it a great treat.... as opposed to those from a fast food "factory" using conveyor Pizza ovens ..... It is that intense heat to the base which alters this basic food to a new elevation.

We visited the "Honest Italian" shortly after it opened....across the Road from Ducane Court and our second visit did not disappoint
