We decided that there were enough FANTASTIC pizza joints serving extraordinary Neapolitan pies, and that, actually, we wanted something a little easier to share, a little easier to pick up (as you wander onto the roof with a cocktail) and a little crisper. We didn't want a base quite as crispy as a Roma pie and so, after Ian Connolly, our executive chef returned from a stint training in a pizza academy in Lazio, along with his chief pizza maker, we realised the style we were after was an 'Italiano' base - softer than a Roma, but cooked at the same temperature, with a Neapolitan style crust. The closest in style would be a New York pizza which was brought from Napoli and adapted to American tastes, so as to create a pick-able up-able slice. The toppings are inspired by Ian's trip to Lazio but with lots of Irish & American influences also. We hope to do lots of 'pizza parties' with 20/25 quid a head menus, including starters, pizzas, salads and desserts, very accessible prices we think!

One of the nicest pizzas I’ve ever had!minor thing: The 12.5% service charge for groups of 4 was unexpected (usually its for tables of 6) but seriously great food and fantastic service :)

Great food, atmosphere slightly spoiled by a group of loud tourists, 2 of whom proceeded to wrestle on the ground beside their table. The staff didn't seem to know what to do with them so did nothing. Other than that we had a very enjoyable dinner, I will definitely be back, hopefully minus wrestlemania.

Personally I enjoyed the food but this was a mixed experience among my group with one individuals pizza constantly falling apart.

The close confines for seating and large table beside my group left my ears ringing on the way out. We had originally planned to order far more cocktails but it was too difficult to enjoy food and company with that unfortunate racket.

Great little find near city centre where you can sit and watch the world go by in an elevated restaurant. Pizzas are delicious and there's a great variety of gins and garnishes to be had

Pizzas were generous in size and there was a good selection of different toppings for all. We had gins and tonics with different garnishes which were nicely presented. Overall a great setting where you can watch the world go by and a very chilled atmosphere.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Yarn. We were a group of 8, everyone enjoyed their food, wish we would have taken advantage of their group deal though. Nevermind, there is always next time. Thankyou

Staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was so yummy and delicious - left the place feeling very full. As a vegetarian, the veggie options can be hit or miss, and my pizza was one of the best I've ever had. My boyfriend, who's a very picky eater, loved his also. Was the best vibe and experince for our Valentine's day date

Went for team Christmas dinner and it was a agreat choice. Food was excellent and service just as good. A little loud, so wouldn't go for a quiet dinner, but great for a group :) definitely recommend.
