Best Italian and Pizzerias Restaurants in London
Local Recommendations from our My Guide London team
The country's tri-coloured flag is very reminiscent of Italian cuisine: green for pesto and peppers, red for pepperoni and tomato, and white for Italy's cheeses. All of these traditional ingredients can be found in London's Italian restaurants.
With plenty of London's top Italian restaurants and pizzerias being situated around the West End and Islington, finding somewhere to eat won't be a problem, but choosing which dish to have might be a bit of a head-scratcher.Pasta is a hugely popular choice of Italian cuisine when mixed with a host of different sauces and meats. All this can be found at the achingly appealing Bocca di Lupo in Soho. Why so good? The reason becomes obvious when you look through the window and see the bustling interior and even more obvious when you sample its food. And, of course you couldn't leave out the option of sampling some of London's finest Italian pizzerias; head to Santa Maria in Ealing for some of the tastiest Neapolitan pizzas around.
