They have other items on the menu, but it would be silly to go to a pizzeria and not have the signature cuisine – especially with this kind of variety on offer. There’s an ordinary margherita; Alfie’s own pizza, stacked with mushrooms, artichokes, and prosciutto; or the organic Ortolama with mushrooms, artichokes, fresh tomatoes, baby marrow, black olives and olive oil. Try the simpler versions before graduating to the more extravagant, which will give you an idea of whether they have what it takes to make your pizza heart sing. There are as many versions as you could wish for but, being Italian, Alfie gets it right with a crust that adds substance yet a lightness of being. Bellissimo!
It’s a comprehensive list with a select few available per glass, including recognisable names like Saronsberg, Kleine Zalze, Rupert and Rothschild. Perhaps with pizza as the choice of food, turn to what else might be on offer in their cocktail or beer selection to add to the adventure.
The waitstaff keep a close eye and are quick to respond when needed.
It has an Italian café feel with many different spots to choose from, depending on your mood. The restaurant is well designed and embraces a street-corner feel as people and traffic pass by. Both the deli section (selling mostly Italian products) and the kitchen on show contribute to the visual appeal. The roomy restaurant has an embracing hum.
The Italian sass adds to the appeal of this pizzeria.
