About the restaurant
Zonzo stands about halfway between Hyde and Regent’s parks, making it a great spot to rest after exploring London’s green spaces. Cozy and traditional, Zonzo offers a rustic ambiance with warm décor and the familiar crackle of wood-fired ovens in the corner of the restaurant. Diners can even watch as the chef prepares the pizzas, tossing the dough into the air and stretching it in the true Italian style. The Zonzo team prides themselves on looking after their guests at this top London Italian joint.

The service. food and wine, were exceptional. I’ve only put 4 for ambience as we were the only people in. It was a late lunch on a Thursday however. Otherwise, a fab restaurant and would book again.

About the restaurant
Melanzana is on the ground floor of The Raven, which happens to be the oldest pub in Battersea. The atmosphere is intimate and inviting, with gentle music playing in a candle-lit dining area. This makes it the ideal spot for a romantic meal in London. Their pizzas are superb, with diners often impressed by the thin, crispy crusts and gluten-free options. For a real feel of Italy and some great pizza, Melanzana is the date-night choice for many Londoners.

About the restaurant
There are few shopping areas in London more exclusive than Kensington High Street. So, it’s no wonder that one of the best family-run Italian places is right here, catering to weary shoppers and wide-eyed tourists. Part of the Slow Food initiative focusing on links to the community and the environment, Pizzicotto is a place to take a break from the hustle and bustle out on the high street. Plenty of choice for vegetarians and a great drinks list too.

About the restaurant
Show lovers need to check out the pre-theater dining menu at TOZI, located just minutes away from top London venues like the famous Apollo. The Pizzetta is the first choice of pizza fans, with juicy tomatoes and spicy salami. The standard menu has plenty of pizza options with some unique flavors too, like spinach with black truffle pesto. A surprising taste of authentic Italy in the midst of urban London.
