Walkers coming off Hampstead Heath could do worse than pop in here for a generously portioned, thin-crust pizza fresh from the oven. Al Parco is a small, unassuming outfit turning a decent trade amid a clutter of books and bendy lamps, and walls dotted with old photos of Italian screen legends. The back section is an odd extension that feels like someone’s conservatory, and overlooks a triangle of turf between the Heath and nearby houses. The pizzas are numerous – including a selection helpfully made without tomato sauce – and the likes of lasagne are available for diners looking to break the mould. When not twirling pizzas with commendable skill, the staff are polite and personable, if sometimes a little lackadaisical.

Lovely to sit surrounded by green plants, friendly Italian feel, good food - right next to the Heath, very nice place.


ok there is probably marginally better pizza out there but this place is a gem. Very family friendly, the staff with bend over backwards for you and has good peroni on tap It's very reasonably priced so all in all a superb little package
