Pizzas play a lead role at this family-run Italian restaurant in Hornsey - they're all cooked in an authentic wood-fire oven that looks the part. The restaurant itself is certainly a dinky spot, but there's take away - and a Piaggio parked outside does deliveries.
The pizza selection keeps things pretty traditional, with margheritas, marinaras, quattro formaggis and diavolas all available as 13 or 16-inchers. The rest of the menu is classic Italian, too - think bruschetta, Sicilian arancino, gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and tagliatelle with a slow-cooked boar ragu. Tiramisu features on the dessert list.
The wine list keeps things exclusively Italian, with bottles kicking off at £13 for a Puglian sangiovese. Bottles of Moretti and Peroni on draught are available, too.

wow... had calzone once, undercooked sloppy, wet pizza. don't understand where all the 5* ratings are from considering the place is very often empty.
this place is not just pizza and this is important for me coz i eat only salad. Tuna salad is delicious and well presented
