Quartieri

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

A Neapolitan pizzeria in Kilburn.

Quartieri is in Kilburn, but it smacks of Shoreditch. The team behind the joint have gone full-on London hipster with this décor: trendy exposed brick and artfully arranged hanging plants. On a Tuesday night visit the place was beautifully lit, buzzing and packed with people under 30. In a word: fun.

Aesthetics aside, what makes this joint stand out is that it’s doing wonderfully daring things with pizza. Take the ‘arancia vesuvius’ – a traditional soft Neopolitan base topped with a rather untraditional mix of blue cheese and lemon and orange rinds. Pizza purists beware, this slice is divisive: I loved the contrast of the indulgently rich cheese and the wonderfully tart, sharp citrus; my date hated it. Less controversial was the ‘giallo del vesuvio’, a luxurious concoction of smoked cheese and thin-cut slices of Italian cured pork.

The only problem was the service. I waited an hour for my pizza and catching a waiter’s eye to complain took almost as long. Many free drinks were poured to make up for it, but you have to be very drunk to forget that kind of wait. Quartieri could be brilliant, though, so hopefully it’s just got teething problems.

A great pizza place for a stop before a play at Kiln Theatre! I had a prosciutto and buffala pizza with yellow tomatoes and aubergine, a delicious combo that I never had before. Prices are really reasonable, all pizzas ranging from £10 to £15. Only downside was the service that was really bad and paying zero attention to customers, although we were just 4 people in the restaurant.


Literally blown away by how good this place is! Pizza is my favourite food, even when they're not that good I still enjoy them (sorry but it's true). However that's not something you have to worry about here because these guys are the real deal and the pizzas will blow you away. I've eaten in the majority of the 'best' ones in London but this is numero uno (pardon my italian). The dough, the dough!!! can we talk about the dough???? The tomatoes, the tomatoes!!!! Can we talk about the tomatoes???? The cheese, the cheese!!!! You get my drift. Simply LOVE LOVE LOVE these pizzas!!!!


I've been here four times and each time has totally delivered! The pizzas are absolutely delicious, especially the Marinara which is simplicity at its finest. They do a lovely bottled beer too, can remember the name of it but it washes down the pizza perfectly! I've also had their starter antipasto platter to share with a friend (the selection of cheese on it is mouth-watering)  which we had with amazing fizzy red wine - perfect combination! Oh and they do lovely pastas too, which isn't on their website but is one their specials board. The staff are always really nice and helpful, they're really family-friendly and it's such great value! I love it here and I am SO glad it's come to NW6 


Been to Quartieri on 4 occasions. I can't speak highly enough about the Pizza and beers available. I've been with family and friends, Quartieri caters for children and my too lads (5 and 2yrs) were more than welcome and loved the pizza. Staff were very helpful in recommending items on the menu and specials. Some flavours and combinations which I have never had before and I'm working my way through the menu! Best pizza I've had and we're looking forward our next visit. Can't recommend this place highly enough, great spot! 


Been to Quartieri 3 times now and it never ever dips below brilliant! The ingredients are almost obsessively selected and the pizza is easily the best I’ve had. Having had the gold standard in Naples, that something to say about Kilburn! The Lemon and smoked mozzarella pizza is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten! Seriously dope! Get down on it!


Fresh ingredients, decent prices and friendly atmosphere. I loved the lemon pizza! Highly recommended!


The best pizza that I've never eat in my life and I'm Italian, first choice ingredients come from Naples twice a week!!! Incredible staff with a big big heart! Love them all!


I am from Naples and know many pizzaioli and can categorically say this is the best pizza in London! Its about ingredients and skill and they have both :)


WOW!!!! What an amazing place this is. They have such interesting pizza's as well as the classics and the flavours are spectacular. We had the pizza limone and one called a 'priests hat' last time we went with friends. They were unlike anything I've had (certainly in London) before. Having been to Naples many times I can safely say these guys know what they're doing but also have one eye firmly on london giving it a real modern feel. So happy to have this in Kilburn and the staff are just so passionate, they talk to you about the ingredients but also about how the owners came to set it up which as a customer I always find really interesting, something you'll never get in a chain. All in all evertyhing they do and are about makes for a wonderful evening every time we go. All set to the back drop of a very cool northern soul soundtrack!


A great find in Kilburn. Delicious, fresh pizza and excellent service. I'm vegan and had the marinara with mushrooms and olives which was so tasty! The pizza base is thin, light and crispy - perfect!  The chocolate donut strips for dessert were also really good to finish with a sweet ending. You can also make reservations here unlike most of the popular pizza places making it a great dinner spot.

Finally a great pizza place in Kilburn, we missed it so much! Quartieri's original restaurant is in the heart of Naples, so I knew I could trust these guys. They have a classic selection of pizzas, with some fancier options, all sold for a very reasonable price (a Margherita is £6,50). They use top ingredients imported from Italy and you can definitely taste the difference. Food was absolutely brilliant and I think I'm going to become a regular client :)

Quartieri is a newly opened authentic pizzeria offering up fresh and delicious food straight out of Naples. Located a five minute walk from Kilburn tube station, it feels like you’re stepping into Italy when you walk through the doors. The restaurant is well decorated with room for smaller or larger groups.


The menu offers recipes using fresh, organic and seasonal ingredients – with most of the ingredients being shipped over twice a week from Italy. Everything else is locally sourced. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and happy to provide explanations of the traditional recipes on offer.


To start we ordered Frittura: Fried Neapolitan delights, crocchè, arancini, which were well seasoned and very tasty. We also tried the Bruschette which was unbelievably fresh! The bruschette is always changing but I got to try their take on the classic which was perfect.


For our mains we decided to go for pizzas – of course! We tried the Margherita Pizza : Agerola Fior di latte, Casa Marazzo organic tomatoes, organic extra virgin olive oil. Obviously a classic and it was delicious so it didn’t disappoint. We also tried the  Salasiccia E Fiarelli: Agerola smoked provola, ‘paesane sausages’, friarielli, organic extra virgin olive oil – friarielli is a bitter vegetable similar to kale which may be an acquired taste for some but I thought it really complimented the smokey cheese and sausages .


For desert we tried the specials of Tiramisu which the chef cooks specially in a  bain marie so the sponge is extra soft and has a great coffee kick and the Orange And Passionfruit Cheesecake with mild flavours so as not to overpower the oh so creamy taste!


Quartieri has a good selection of wines and craft beers to match their menu. As it was a school night we opted for their locally sourced ‘Karma Kola’ which tasted like old school cola bottle sweets and a ‘Lemony Lemonade’ which was fresh and tasty. My arm was twisted to try the Frangelico hazelnut liqueur and I have to say it went very well with the tiramisu!


We had a fantastic meal, with great service – I can’t fault anything and it was great value considering pizzas were only £5 – £9.50.
