This second branch of the fast-expanding Soho pizzeria chain may have a tiny covered dining area, but it also has the advantage of being an outdoor dining area in Kingly Court, albeit one that's hemmed in by the tables of adjoining restaurants.
On our visit the bases were doughy and soft yet appealing. The toppings were well-chosen, with flavoursome ingredients, imaginatively combined. The ’nduja (spicy pork sausage) had chilli punch, while friarelli – a Italian broccoli-like green – forms the topping with fennel sausage on another.
There’s room for improvement in some details. A ‘guest pizza’ described as having a topping of US-Italian spicy ‘meatballs’ contained a meagre amount of meat and chunks of near-raw garlic. Perhaps not the best pizzas in London then – but this little pizzeria is still an attractive place to eat outdoors at a fair price, making it worth the pilgrimage.

My first taste of the food scene in London was a slice of the nduja Pizza Pilgrim's pizza at the We Feast event in 2013. I was blown away (quite literally, that stuff is HOT!) and immediately went back for seconds. Since then I've been so happy to see the guys go from strength to strength, from a simple pizza van to setting up two places in Soho. These guys deserve your time, your money and your tastebuds. You won't regret it.
