Italians Pizza Connection in Bayswater is missing. You can buy a 18" margherita (which is enough for 2 or 3 people!) for just £13! I love that place, and I'm Italian!
Will be in the¨"Big Smoke" next week and this site will be most helpful since I´ve been told "there´s absolutely not a good unexpensive place to eat well there! And I know that´s not true! But I haven´t got the time to explore the city on my own(which I love), so this is (to me) an excellent way to avoid going hungry!!! Thanks a lot!!!
