A favourite amongst all italians in London. Now have restauarants in Brixton, Tottenham Court Road, Balham,  Westfield, Chiswick and more…

Pizza East

Head over to Shoreditch to find one of the most eclectic pizza houses in London. It serves up painstakingly original pizzas that your taste buds will appreciate. The venue itself is attractive, and representative of the convivial influences that make the place unique. What we mean is that the venue is typically London/New York, while the pizza is more of a Los Angeles variety. Italian ingredients are well-represented here, from the prosciutto to the fresh mozzarella and salami.

Santore

One of the most authentic pizza houses in London is also one of the best places to go with a large group. Why? Because they sell their pizza by the meter. And how can you tell it’s authentic? Well, if you have a look-see, you’ll discover that true Italians come here for their Neapolitan pizza, and attest to its origins. This is the place to come for a more traditional Italian pizza. Don’t expect much from the locale, because the point is to save any and all appreciation for the pizza itself.

Pizza Union

They call it a “pizza bar”, and that it is. This place serves up 12 inch artisan pizzas cooked in a stone oven, and their main draw besides the taste is the speed at which they do it. Expect lunchtime crowds at this Spitalfields location, because it has already been hailed as one of the quick pizza greats in London.

The Honest Italian

This is a favorite among any and all lovers of Italian cuisine. But they are above all a pizzeria, where their wood-fired pizzas are served to clients by accommodating and well-reviewed staff. The Honest Italian is located in Balham, and is the district’s pizza epicenter. One of the other principle draws of The Honest Italian is its charming ambiance—it has all the makings of a unique Italian restaurant, but they don’t overdo it!
