I've written briefly about Bottega Toffoli before, but a spot this good deserved a second visit and I was even more impressed this time around.
Ran by a two-person team (Carlo cooks, Elaine's front of house), you won't find any white linen napkins here or swanky sommeliers swanning around serving, chatting, and cooking all the food, Toffoli is more like the sorta place you’d discover in a winding side street in Naples.
The pizza crusts are charred and doughy, perfect for sopping up some olive oil and salt, while toppings range from creamy buffalo mozzarella, to Calabrian salami and Italian sausages.
The pies are cooked to perfection, their wonky shape making them taste even better, fired up and sliced by an expert Pizzaiola.
There’s also usually pasta specials and fresh fish on the menu, simply grilled and bursting with flavour.
