Those of you who under the age of 40 who have seen Murder on the Orient Express would imagine that any travel to Paris in pre-Eurostar days involved personalised leather suitcases, glamorous travelling companions and silver service dining on a sleek machine-missile headed straight to the heart of lovetown. And murder.
It's often the case that it's only when you move away from a place that you appreciate the finest things about it, which until then you'd either been ignorant of, or had taken for granted. Such was the case with Romanas in Ferryhill.
At about twenty quid a head with service I don't know why you'd go anywhere else for trad Italian in this neck of the woods.
Great pizza, bored staff, tedious customers.
Good pizza, proper Neapolitan fried stuff and a bit of a rant about paying for stuff in the National Gallery that you can usually see for free.
Resto 24 #dearpizza, #Highbury An excellent awning makes al fresco dining in the heat tolerable. Good #pizza and friendly service are a hit. As is the #estorick show of #campari related material. A perfect one-two in #Islington. #food #london
in Lisson Grove for a rather underwhelming production of Medea we wanted quick eats out of the sun. Firebrand Pizza looked a good bet. It’s a shady room with a big window to watch the folks of the Grove go by. The menu is standard pizza and starters so went for a platter of meat…
The only way this meal could have been improved was if the restaurant was at the end of my street rather than being on the wrong side of the tracks.
For a total of £13 you'd find it hard to eat that well for that kind of money elsewhere in Stroud Green.
Good pizza before grooving to the Cubans at l'Entrepôt is an excellent way to spend a Saturday night.
