A chic pizzeria doing things by the book

This Italian eatery may be sleek and shiny, what with the polished concrete floors, big glass windows onto Enmore Road and open kitchen, but the menu is old school. There's usually two pastas on the menu – a gnocchi and a fettuccini with meatballs – but their main love is piping hot pizze that they fling into the wood-fired oven on big, decorative peels (like a shovel, or a giant spatula). The Margherita is a straight shooter with a puffy blistered crust and a soft centre draped in fior di latte cheese, tomato and basil. If you like truffle the tartufo is for you, but we are all about the Cicoria, that puts the metallic salty tang of anchovies and black olives with chards of bitter chicory leaves and cheese. They have a drinks list but you can also BYO, and there's an enoteca just across the street called Cittavino if you like the good stuff. They also don't take bookings so if you're heading here before an Enmore Theatre show it pays to get in early because it's a very popular dinner spot on this eat street.
