"The flavour of fine slices of courgette fruit and flower leapt off a (pizza) base that was thin, crisp and just charred at the edge as I like it, accompanied by mellifluous goat’s curd and little sudden, salty detonations of anchovy." READ REVIEW

"...best pizzas in London, wood-fired in a jewelled igloo you can see from the street. The black anise pepperoni job is in fact probably the best single object for sale in Europe under a tenner" READ REVIEW

"...as a dining room, it does manage to transcend the nursery-school muddle of its parts. Mainly because the atmosphere is optimistic and attractive, but also ­because it plainly wants to be good at being a restaurant when it grows up." READ REVIEW

"That blingy oven is pressed into excellent service: focaccia, open-crumbed, oily and fragrant with herbs; pizzas, their crusts airy, the bases thin, topped with imaginative ingredients: truffle-shaped, spicy Belper Knolle cheese and their own-made, gorgeous, black anise pepperoni." READ REVIEW

"Hugely dedicated and talented chefs in the kitchen, an informal bar which is open all day for simple cocktails and snacks, and fuss-free, stripped-back design." READ REVIEW
