A Home From Homeslice | Homeslice Pizza, 52 Wells Street, Fitzrovia, London W1T 3PR

by

When writing up our restaurant reviews, the first thing that I try to do is think of a title. It has to be witty (usually fails), pun-tasticly clever (again hit and miss) and… Continue reading

Pizza Perfect | Pizza Pilgrims, 11 Kingly Street, London, W1B 5PW

We feared the wurst… | Herman ze German, 43 Charlotte Street, London W1T 1RS
