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.

This review sounds like another half arsed food blogger damaging excellent local business. The ingredients are authentic (imported from Italy) and the dough lovingly crafted by the owner who invests time in charities in the area and gives lessons and baking classes to the community. The drinks list is ample and well sourced. The vegetables are prepared and grilled before in-house before they go on the pizza - did you want your aubergine crunchy Isabelle? It's rare to find a business of any industry with such quality and consistency and love these days in London that is still independent and plans to always be. Go taste some of the best pizza in London! I love you. Time Out I urge you to review again.


Time out is having a shocker! This pizza is absolutely delicious. I live around the corner and have at least 2 of their pizzas a week, slightly addicted. Staff are extremely friendly and they do a lot of charity work, really important part of the community. Keep it going guys! 


Just a couple of minutes’ walk from Camden road station, this family run pizzeria is a true gem. The pizza is authentic, prices are decent and setting is cute. Great for romantic dates or group meals.


What a ridiculous review! This is the best pizza in London. I go there at least once every week and the pizza is to die for every single time! Do not be put off by this review!!!

I popped into here last night and got the Verdura for takeaway. It’s a white pizza with a nice assortment of veggie toppings. I realized after I had already ordered I wanted aubergine added atop (wasn’t part of the original toppings) and the staff kindly added it without charging me extra. Good customer service! The pizza came quickly as well. It’s not very large but perfectly satisfying. Good “chew” factor on the dough and I appreciated the base of wasn’t burnt like at other pizzerias I’ve been to. The cheese was wonderfully salty and the red pepper and aubergine were particularly flavourful. That said it wasn’t the best pizza I’ve had in London- no one holds a candle to Yard Sale, Pizza East and Joe’s in Clapham. But if I lived in the area I would definitely stop by here again. The staff was friendly and the restaurant is small with a few tables.


Amazing place. Not sure if Time out went on an off day but I've been going here since it opened and it simply is the best Pizza this side of Naples. The people are lovely too, 


Pizza is amazing! straight out of Naples. Hands down the best pizza in London.


Ingredients are fresh, delicious and must be the best quality. the dough is light and fluffy. easy to eat.


Also, they make fresh bread which is so nice if you live close - love this place - really nice people.


I've been to this place numerous times and without fault it's definitely the best pizza place in London. It's a small business that really takes pride in their work. Will definitely keep coming back!
