I had a very soggy pizza, the middle was basically mush. Not only that, but it tasted incredibly average. Id like to think there were some kind of craft involved in making a pizza but this one looked as if someone had thrown up vegetables all over it.
My partner had a gnocchi with sausage with what also tasted like wet and undermade gnocchi.
Not sure what the deal is, but being very local, this is sadly one place we shall never return to.
quite frankly the worst pizza in christendom. Ordered three pizzas and upon opening my heart sank. Pizzas looked like they had been made by a five year old.Never again. Makes papa johns seem like the pizza joint in the sopranos
Massive backfire shipping this nonsense in.
Let me begin with the fact that I’m italian and maybe my standards are too high. In my quest for a decent pizza I have given il Bacio several goes as it’s my local pizzeria. It’s very hit and miss. The dough is good but the toppings are increasingly worsening. Ordered 3 different take away pizzas last night and despite a promise from the guy at the oder end that the delivery will be with us in 30 minutes we had to wait 1 hour and 40 minutes for them to turn up. No apologie, discount or phone call was given.
The toppings were mainly cheesey, barely any tomato and very salty.
The Margherita did not have any basil, now, let me tell you a margherita without any basil is like a shepherd’s pie without the mince.
My quest for a decent pizza continues as it’s addio to Il bacio.
Such good pizza!
I'm usually a dyed-in-the-wool Hawaiian fan (yes I know!), but all the toppings on offer here sound so good I'm slowly working my way through them...
Since moving to Stokey and being introduced to these fellas by my new housemate, I'm well and truly sorted for my takeaway pizza needs!
Next up: a Parigina...
Great pizza, thin delicious dough base - fresh and falvoursome toppings, reasonable prices, nice street location with pavement seats if you are lucky and for the chronically lazy then you can take away and it still tastes as good. on the best places to grab a bite along church street, always busy but can generally squeeze in.
In contrast to the previous review, my family love the house wine! Great pasta and pizza. Especially the pasta - it never tastes like this elsewhere, and its how I imagine it tastes in Italy/Scicily. I don't like the pizza place across the road which is also part of the Il Bacio empire, the pizza's aren't as good in my opinion. Have never tried the the more expensive Il Bacio - have never felt the need to and my dad fancies the waitresses in this one so probably will never try the other one either.
Il Bacio is a super little Italian cafe on Stoke Newington Church Street. The menu is pizza and pasta with a specials board that changes every few weeks. Food is consistently good, and rarely is anything unavailable. They are happy for you to share a dish (especially puddings!). Small selection of alcoholic drinks. The only down side is that it is small so you sometimes can’t get a table.
Il Bacio Express is the place to come for an inexpensive, informal pizza meal. The younger brother to the bigger and more formal Il Bacio down the road, this is a great place for Sunday dinners after the Saturday night before.
The pizzas are generous and mouth watering. Keep an eye on the specials board for some interesting combinations! The staff are happy to tailor the pizzas to your tastes.
The stuff that’s not pizza on the menu is also pretty good. Try the lasagna, it’s better than your mamma could ever make!
Beer and wine and lovely coffees to accompany classic Italian desserts such as tiramisu are also available.
They also do take-away if you can’t stand the bright light of a hungover Sunday afternoon!
Great Sardinian (don’t say Italian) restaurant on Church Street. Absolutely stunning pizzas - my favourite place in London.
The pizzas are huge, remember to ask for the pizza box, the staff are friendly, helpful and are happy to save the remains of your plate from the waste bin.
It’s been known for one pizza to last 3 meals (incl. breakfast)
Eat in and takeaway available.
This is a great little Italian place in the middle of Church st. It is ALWAYS busy, and for good reason. The food here is great, I particularly like the pasta’s. The service is friendly and really prompt.
It is a little squeasy, but I guess that’s part of its charm. The large windows open onto the street in such a way that it feels like you are dining outdoors.
You can call before going and reserve a table or order your take-away.
Young staff is always smiling and listening to all your enquiries.
Traditional music and the sight of the cook give an authentic atmopshere by feeling somewhere in Italy even if it's a little restaurant , there is "his brother" across the street which is bigger.
Pizzas are cooked in a real oven so they keep the smell of the raising flour. Unique! A special note for the Verdure one with the chewable mushrooms.
If you are tired ask for a delivery at home.
