Foursquare Tips

  • "Sourdough pizza bases dating back to the 1700s; a brick pizza oven was built using materials imported from Campagnia; and mozzarella is made to an Italian recipe on an organic farm in Somerset..."
  • Without doubt, the best pizza outside of Italy
  • Simple and delicious sourdough pizza. People travel from all over London for this one..
  • La migliore pizzeria di Londra! La pizza quasi some quella di Napoli. Ottimi prezzi. Si parte da 5.
  • The menu here is precise with just six pizzas available and astonishingly cheap; the most expensive pizza, with chorizo and mozzarella, costs less than 6. It really is a delight to come here.
  • This pizza is amazing... any of the 6 in the menu. Try the organic homemade lemonade, it's as good as the pizza :)
  • Worth the queueing. Amazing sour dough base. Brilliant Sam Adams beer. Best pizza in London, possibly the UK. GO!
  • Number 5 ftw
  • Best pizza in London by far. Amazing sourdough base. Also so tasty vegetarian options!
  • Wait for a table inside during the winter... it's basically like sitting in a wind tunnel otherwise.
  • Try sugar on your pizza, @jag4091 did.
  • A no-bookings policy applies but the sourdough pizzas are freshly baked and have the perfect balance between toppings and bread. Stays open until 9.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • The best pizza in London. And I am Italian so I ve tried a few.
  • The best pizza in London (seriously),with an amazing sourdough crust and simple but divine toppings. Wine is tasty, reasonably priced and organic.Take a jumper if it's chilly!
  • The best pizza in the UK. Get there 15 minutes before it opens to ensure you don't have to wait for 30 minutes.
  • The beer's a winner (pizza obv doesn't get a lot better.) bonus points if you see the manager flip out!
  • Rock up past the queue, order a takeaway and eat it in Brixton square if you can't bear queuing. And it's number 5 every time.
  • Amazing pizza and amazing prices. Ham and mushroom is to die for.
  • Used to be a good italian pizza, but in the last months I've only got gummy pizzas far away to what a pizza bread supposed to be. Good price remain the only good point, not sure of worth it anyway.
  • Delicious pizza with amazing dough and striking flavours. A bit stingy on the sauce and cheese though.
