Fantastic hidden gem in an unusual location.

Great food, good friendly service, everything you might look for in Italian restaurant. Not easy to find these days, especially without paying a fortune.

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant. We fell in love with it instantly. It is so lovely and homely and the food is delicious. We are very lucky to have this reataurant virtually on our doorstep. The staff are very friendly even though they are rushed off their feet. If you want tradiational Italian food we recommend you visit this restaurant.

This is truly a local restaurant with a family vibe. They are always nice, attentive without being intrusive and helpful. The food is bellisimo! I hope that’s the right word. Great. My daughter has a nut allergy and they were prepared when we got there. We’re lucky to have this in Catford. Thanks a lot! Julia

Love this place. One of my favourite local places to come. Super tasty authentic Italian food. Amazing host. He goes above and beyond for us, especially now he's got to know our group more because we've started to come more often. Thanks for another great meal.

A very good local - the pizzas were truly excellent! Their starter of bread with balsamic/oil was a bit quirky - a plate with 4 very tiny pieces of sliced baguette with a pot in the middle - ill-conceived, especially at £3.50. I'll definitely go there again...

La Pizzeria Italiana is one my favourite Italian restaurants in London. I really love having dinner there, the food is amazing, well cooked and not pricey, staff is kind and they have an Italian beer that it's not east to find elsewhere - Moretti Toscana which is awesome! I have been many times there and will for sure come along many more. Highly recommended!

Best linguine pasta I’ve ever had with this herb and garlic cream sauce. The salmon was exceptional and those king prawns out of this world!!!! I’m still lusting after that dish! Always love it there. Love the ambience and the lovely staff, the owner is from Bologna, my favourite city and he’s gotba great selection of interesting and beautiful fun photographs hanging in the restaurant! A gem of a place x

La Pizzeria Italiana is a Catford institution, hidden away under the Eros Tower. Excellent old school trattoria feel gives me the lovely feeling of eating with my parents in the '70's. A simple, classic menu of very well-made pizzas and pastas and a truly excellent offering of fresh fish dishes. A short but strong and very well-priced wine list. A reliable and tasty, family-oriented neighbourhood bolthole. Suggestions would be more vegan and gluten free options and expand the creativity with salad and vegetable options for very contemporary palates...

Never disappoints. Staff all very friendly, a real family run feel. The food is outstanding. The location may seem off-putting but its a real diamond in the rough. If you want a truly authentic Italian dining experience with a price that doesn't hurt your wallet then don't hesitate, book today.
