I remember when it opened back in 2012: at last, I thought, someone has a sensible, Italian approach to pizza. Instead of presenting me with a huge, plate-sized disc of dough, they give me a choice of reasonably sized squares which I can mix-and-match as the fancy takes me. This is much more suited to my appetite and much more in the tradition of the original Roman takeaway– as I recall it.
I love to go here on my way to a gig at nearby Band on the Wall. A couple of slices of pizza, washed down with a glass of Valpolicella is the perfect way to prepare mind and body for an evening of jazz. At lunch times I might go off-piste and buy one of their sandwiches to take away– I like to try everything on offer and have never been disappointed. All the dough is made, as you would expect, on-site and to their own traditional recipes and exacting standards.
Take-away, eat-in or–on sunny days–enjoy sitting at the pavement tables on Stevenson Square (there is gelato on offer as well) one thing is sure; once you’ve tried a slice of proper pizza, you will never contemplate going to Pizza Express again.
