9 reviews of la pizzeria italiana in English
With various travelling it's sometimes several months in between my visits but he always remembers my name and face, and even my favourite pizza!
The food is always fresh, with regualrly changing specials, I'm not sure if I've ever made it to dessert, despite having a sweet tooth, as the mains and garlic bread is so tasty. Overall the food is very reasonably priced, as is the wine.
I couldn't recommend highly enough.
I have been to the restaurant few days ago I was with some friends of mine; we had to wait for an hour to have pizzas plus pasta was cold. On top of it pizza didn’t taste that good neither, would not go back and not recommend to others.

I've been coming here for a few years and have never walked away disappointed.
The restaurant is tucked away and it would be easy to miss it or walk past without a second glance. But you'd be missing out on a real treat. Step through the door and you're assured of a warm welcome.
The menu offers a good selection of pizzas, meat and fish. The thin crust pizzas (just how I like 'em) are made in the pizza oven at the front of the restaurant so you get a chance to see how your pizza's prepared - and pick up some tips if you want to try your pizza skills at home!
Make sure to check the specials board: there's often a dish to tempt you. My favourites include king prawn linguni (a winning combination of juicy, spicy prawns and soft linguni) and a delicious lobster ravioli. A couple of my regular dining companions alternate between steak and pizza, both of which get high praise and fat smiles.
The staff are attentive (often delivering a fresh beer just as it's needed) and really friendly. And you may find you're on first name terms in no time!
This is a great, popular neighbourhood Italian and it has a loyal and regular following - so much so that you may need to book at weekends.

We are regular visitors (though not often enough), and always delighted by the fresh, tasty food, the warm, friendly welcome and the very reasonable prices. This is really my ideal of a neighbourhood pizzeria and I am lucky to live nearby.
This place is hidden away but has been going for years!! It always has a great atmosphere whether it is busy or not and I have never had a bad meal there. Pizzas are made before your very eyes so great for the kids to watch. (and the adults too!)
Desserts are amazing, the white chocolate proffiteroles are really something to be experienced. I would deffinately reccomend a visit.
This is indeed a gem of a restaurant. My first visit was to host a slightly noisy birthday party and this was met with smiles all round from the staff. They did not even mind all the balloons tied to the chairs. The food was superb and the service was extremely friendly and efficient. Not many restaurants allow you to bring your own birthday cake which they brought out and then brought us plates and forks and suggested we eat the cake instead of ordering dessert !!!
One of those retaurants that I would like to keep to myself :-)
This Italian Restaurant is tucked away and many will have passed a gem without realising it. It was recommended to me from a local residant in Catford about 5 years ago and I’ve been a regular ever since.
Rarely will you find such good food, and at extremely low prices. There truly is nothing bad that I can say about this restaurant. The service is fast and friendly, in fact the owner gets on first name terms very quickly. The atmostphere is cosy, yet delicate and romantic. The desserts menu is fantastic, and they stock a wide range of drinks. The pizzas are cooked in the front of teh restaurant giving it an even more Italian feel, and there is some light opera/Italian music in the background adding to the atmosphere.
The only thing to remember is to book before you head there as they tend to get very busy because its so great!
