A New York-style pizza parlour in Chiswick.
Start spreading the news: for a spot that’s at least a six-hour flight from Manhattan, this little joint in the middle of Chiswick has, surprisingly, nailed it. The wood-fired pizzas are epic – thin and crispy, with chewy crusts, and graced with layers of sharp tomato sauce, oozing mozzarella and a tasty mess of toppings.
Then there’s the venue. Just like New York, everything about Pizza Street is straight to the point. The dark wood and metallic interior makes dining in not the worst idea in the world, though with just the radio for entertainment, hard seats and plastic cutlery, there’s not much of a vibe (except in the funky, fake-grass-clad loos). This place is great for takeaway, and there’s even a massive sign above the till that tells you how to grab your grub and go. Dinnertime is busy, with a constant stream of locals collecting a single slice for £3.50, a large pizza for a tenner or X-large for £15.
I opted for an X-large, as it’s the only way you can get a half and half, which will cost you an extra three quid. The Buffalo is wonderfully spicy and meaty, heaped with pepperoni, smoked ham, sausage, jalepeño, chilli flakes and lots of oregano. The Anchovy – a classic combo with capers, olives and mixed peppers – is equally grand, if a little too salty. That’s nothing that a good cocktail can’t cure, but sadly the only drinks here are your typical fizzies, beers and cheap wine. Forget about the sides too. An avocado salad (£3.50) was pretty bland.
But fancy isn’t the point of Pizza Street. The area’s teenagers, couples and families are already flocking here to get great-value, authentic pizza, chuffed that they have a real slice of New York on their doorstep.

I'm always on the lookout for good pizza places. This one is definitely one of my favourites. I love places where there's friendly service. One of the main reasons why I'm coming back to certain restaurants :)
I certainly believe that Timeout gets paid to write these reviews. Nailed NY style pizza? What a joke! Timeout please send your reviewer to NY pronto.
I love pizza more than life itself- but not this type. Like the concept and atmosphere- and my kids liked the pizza. But give me an Italian style pizza (santa Maria, Franco manca, loro di napoli) any day.
I tried this place for the first time yesterday - Top notch tasty pizzas, generous portions, very reasonably prized and a chilled atmosphere...I will deffo return!
A couple of friends recommended this new place to me on Teepee so I was eager to try it. Great pizzas - a real addition to the Chiswick scene!
