Named after an Italian comedy double-act from the 70s, Pappa Ciccia was set up in 1995 by Tino and Shelly Mereu, who still run it as a genuine family pizzeria. As part of the fabric of Fulham, it feeds the locals with a menu of traditional antipasti, pastas, risottos, salads and pizzas with perfectly crisp crusts. These 12-inch beauties come with all manner of toppings from the Campagnola (balsamic-glazed chicken, roasted peppers, rosemary and garlic) to the PC special with mozzarella, tomato, spinach, red onion, Parma ham, egg and parmesan shavings. To drink, a bottle of the Sardinian house red should do the trick if you haven’t taken advantage of the BYO offer (£4.50 corkage per person). Pappa Ciccia’s relaxed, unpretentious vibe is great for kids, dates, family catch-ups and big parties.
