This place used to be called L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele and people would come to Stoke Newington Church Street from all over London to try one of two pizzas on the menu - margherita or marinara - made just like they are in Naples. Though the famous name might have gone, this simple little spot has maintained standards, and the pizzas are still as good as - if not better than - anything else you’ll find in London. And on those days when the weather is as good as it probably is in Naples, they have a small garden where you can book if you’re a group of six or more, to enjoy your pizza in the fresh air and sunshine.
