A Neapolitan pizza joint near the canal in Camden Town.
Camden might not be top of the list when you think of authentic Italian cuisine – but with a focus on traditional Neapolitan cooking and ingredients, Pizzeria di Camden is hoping to change that.
The small space has a stripped-back industrial vibe and there’s an open-plan kitchen where punters can see their food being fired in the huge pizza oven. Even so, you can tell it is newly opened – the menu was lacking drinks listings and a few food options weren’t available.
Still, we didn’t go hungry. The aptly named Vesuvius pizza, with spicy sausage, ham and pepperoni, was enough to satisfy any carnivore. Less good was the veggie Verdura, embellished with rather limp-looking artichokes and courgettes. Even so, the toppings were the best part of the pizzas – the bases were on the soggy side. I really wanted to like the place – the staff were friendly and attentive, and you could tell they were trying their best (despite a steady stream of people popping in for takeaways, we were pretty much their only sit-in customers). But there’s no excuse for a soggy bottom. Just ask Mary Berry.
