Restaurant details
Good for: Families with children
Dining options: Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Alongside our Bakery we now have our Refettorio ( Italian for Refectory a dining room). Latin: Refectorium which means a place one goes to be restored! It offers a relaxed environment with a shared seating arrangement which encourages conversation and a sense of community. The idea of which comes from Italian food and wine festivals. Our interior is rustic/industrial. Our menu is best described as simple: 5 pizzas and 1 speciality, approved by Slow Food London Association, long fermentation sourdough bases and delicious quality fresh ingredients all made with organic flours.

“Most delicious pizza outside of Italy”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Congratulations Ruben's Bakehouse, your sourdough pizze (is that Italian plural for more than one pizza?) exceeded our expectations and are as good as the best we've eaten in Italy and better than many!

We have enjoyed your sourdough breads from Surbiton and Kew Farmers Markets and were keen to try your refectory.

The informal atmosphere was perfect for us and we've been enthusing about you to friends and strangers!

Congratulations and good luck to you all

“Best Pizza's in all of the Land!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Great Pizzas, Wonderful welcoming atmosphere. The staff are great! Only have 4 pizza's on the menu with a guest pizza that changes frequently. I can not fault the pizza. They use their own special recipe to make the dough and it is gorgeous. They don't accept bookings, first come first serve but worth the wait during busy periods. Also its BYOB so don't forget! So pleased to have such great pizzas on our doorstep.

“Best Pizza in the UK....”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

So pleased to find this wonderful enterprise almost on our doorstep. The pizza are the best I've ever eaten in the UK and beat most of those in Italy. The room is basic; you'll eat at tables with strangers, enjoy wine out of tumblers and have great service from Igor and his staff. Unbelievable value.... BYO for wine. Enjoy!

A proper refettorio setup with simply the best pizza in London. Staff friendly, BYO and great desserts if you can manage them. Buy some bread on the way out......superb.

“Quite simply the best ever pizza, bar none!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

While visiting the uk on a business trip I happened to be in Twickenham one Thursday evening and decided to give this small but inviting pizzeria a go. I've eaten pizza all over Italy and in some very famous pizzerias such as the pizzeria da Michele in Naples. I have to be honest that I would never have expected to find a pizza equal to them all and in some cases better, in twickenham! I ordered a rock and roll which was served quickly and in a friendly and relaxed manner that makes you want to go back, indeed as I write this I wish I was there now! One thing that makes this place stand out and makes me quite jealous of the people in twickenham is that not only do they have a top top pizzeria in Rubens bake house but also a wonderful bakery turning high quality bread that generally you cannot find in today's mass produced world. I really enjoyed my meal and would fully recommend it to anyone especially to Italians looking for a real Italian pizza in London!
