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.
