Wonderful local restaurant, best Italian in the area. Great food and wine
This is truly a local restaurant with a family vibe. They are always nice, attentive without being intrusive and helpful. The food is bellisimo! I hope that’s the right word. Great. My daughter has a nut allergy and they were prepared when we got there. We’re lucky to have this in Catford. Thanks a lot! Julia
Lovely local hidden away in Catford. Great food and service.
Love this place. One of my favourite local places to come. Super tasty authentic Italian food. Amazing host. He goes above and beyond for us, especially now he's got to know our group more because we've started to come more often. Thanks for another great meal.
A very good local - the pizzas were truly excellent! Their starter of bread with balsamic/oil was a bit quirky - a plate with 4 very tiny pieces of sliced baguette with a pot in the middle - ill-conceived, especially at £3.50. I'll definitely go there again...
Very friendly welcome and lovely homely food. Sea food, in particular, was really fresh and tasty.
Whenever I visit the Catford area, I always take the opportunity to have a meal at La Pizzeria Italiana, and I am never disappointed. The food is delicious, the service excellent and it is great value for money. I would thorough recommend this restaurant to anyone living in or visiting the area.
Came here once with the family & once with my girlfriend who also really enjoyed the food. Would recommend to anyone. Lovely little place hidden away but worth discovering
La Pizzeria Italiana is one my favourite Italian restaurants in London. I really love having dinner there, the food is amazing, well cooked and not pricey, staff is kind and they have an Italian beer that it's not east to find elsewhere - Moretti Toscana which is awesome! I have been many times there and will for sure come along many more. Highly recommended!
Quality food, you know you're gonna get quality. A bastion of the neighborhood, it's been there over 30 years.
Best linguine pasta I’ve ever had with this herb and garlic cream sauce. The salmon was exceptional and those king prawns out of this world!!!! I’m still lusting after that dish! Always love it there. Love the ambience and the lovely staff, the owner is from Bologna, my favourite city and he’s gotba great selection of interesting and beautiful fun photographs hanging in the restaurant! A gem of a place x
Good food and friendly atmosphere. Also good wine and choice of Italian lagers.
Fantastic food, wonderful service, great ambiance and just around the corner! Couldn't have been better :)
La Pizzeria Italiana is a Catford institution, hidden away under the Eros Tower. Excellent old school trattoria feel gives me the lovely feeling of eating with my parents in the '70's. A simple, classic menu of very well-made pizzas and pastas and a truly excellent offering of fresh fish dishes. A short but strong and very well-priced wine list. A reliable and tasty, family-oriented neighbourhood bolthole. Suggestions would be more vegan and gluten free options and expand the creativity with salad and vegetable options for very contemporary palates...
Never disappoints. Staff all very friendly, a real family run feel. The food is outstanding. The location may seem off-putting but its a real diamond in the rough. If you want a truly authentic Italian dining experience with a price that doesn't hurt your wallet then don't hesitate, book today.
Always fabulous, a lovely local restaurant, great for vegetarians epic tiramisu
We love coming to La Pizzeria Italiana. It is such a great authentic Italian restaurant; a little gem in the heart of Catford. It was the busiest I have ever seen it this time round, but it had a great atmosphere. The service was slightly slower than usual, and we had to remind them of a couple drinks they had missed, but considering how busy it was, it really wasn't a problem. A great place to sit and enjoy the evening as they don't rush you through your meal. Food is always top notch. This will be remaining a firm favourite.
Delicious, authentic Italian food and lovely staff. Excellent value. Local gem - will be back!
One of my favourite places to eat, lovely Italian food and amazing pizza. You may need to book a table as the this local gem is no longer a secret! The staff are lovely and the service is quick. If you are a fan of Brutalist architecture and local landmarks then you may also appreciate the location!
Friendly patron and staff, cozy and relaxed atmosphere, great food
This is the third time we have visited this Italian gem in the heart of Catford. With so many chains, finding a local family restaurant we can walk to is a real treasure. Franco and his team are very attentive, the menu and wine list is extensive, and the surroundings attractive and cosy. Children are also welcome. The quality of the food is excellent and very well priced.
This has got to be my favourite restaurant in London. Everything is perfect!
Love this place as a good old fashioned, no nonsense, honest, affordable Italian. Friendly, always kind, always a treat. Franco is a gem.
Absolutely hidden gem. Me and my missues are big fans of Italy and italian cusine and have visted Italy and italian restaurants many times and in different countries .This place is authentic , cosy and have great chefs and amazing food . Would recommend this place to everyone who loves great food
I had some reservations as we approached the restaraunt, but, even early, inside it was buzzing and happy. Franco, the owner, was a great host and very pleasent. Food was good with a great selection of daily specials.
Lovely food as always but the service is getting worse. The people working are really nice but service is very slow and we had to remind them about our drinks and we got the wrong number of starters.
Our table was very squashed next to the entrance, which was quite claustrophobic as we couldn’t really move that much. However, it is very small so I don’t think there’s much that can be done about that
Unfortunately as t took so long to eat we had to leave after an hour and a half with no dessert as we were meeting friends elsewhere.
I regularly visit the restaurant for a catch up meal with my friend and we always find the staff very friendly and the atmosphere amazing. The food is really good and nice size portions are served so value for money. I would recommend visiting the restaurant 100% you will not be disappointed.
This is real find in an unassuming location. Great food at affordable prices in a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
Lovely little local Italian. V good wine and excellent homemade food.
First time trying this hidden gem. Always been put off by the location but wanted somewhere walkable from home. Arrived at 7.15 and by 8 it was really busy. Good food which was served in good time. Look forward to returning.
Friendly service, attentative owner, excellent food, really good value. A hidden gem in Catford. If you like Italian food is defiantly reccomend you give this place a try.
The food was delicious. I had a perfect pizza (thin base and tasty) and others in our group also had really good food. We've been coming here, on and off, for many years. Its lovely to have it so near.
Ignore the location and the outside, great Italian food with authentic pizzas and great service
We went to Pizzeria Italia for a 21st birthday meal for my son. Consistent, excellent service and food. Love this place.
Second visit, had such a good experience the first time. We were not let down the second time, food was great (fish stew to die for!) and staff friendly and accommodating. Would not hesitate to recommend, looking forward to a lunchtime visit soon. All my guests agree with me, a gem.
We have been going to Pizzeria Italiana for about 20 years, I guess. I am always amazed by the consistent high quality of the food. Everything is cooked fresh and it's just great. I don't know how they keep doing it. We will be back again and again
Always lovely to eat here and on a cold summer evening the welcome was warm and the food delicious. Would recommend highly.
Such a lovely restaurant. The staff are lovely and the food is very good. It was especially nice to be asked when we wanted each course so we never felt rushed :)
Will be back.
Great as always. Excellent fish and seafood. Great to have this place on my doorstep.
Authentic and great food with friendly service. Its definitely our little neighbourhood gem!
