Lovely local restaurant. Friendly staff and amazing food. Great value for money.
Good fish dishes and also pasta and (of course) pizzas. Wines etc OK. The Strega is a good digestif.
I am a regular at this restaurant and it never fails to disappoint! Food is amazing! A hidden treasure in Catford!
Fantastic local Italian- always busy. Pizas have a great reputation, but actually the alla carte and specials are well worth exploring
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.
The Pizzeria is in the most unlikely place but great food at a great price. Local family run business worth supporting.
Love this local restaurant. Careful attention to customers from the owner and all the waiting staff are excellent. Love the specials menu. Will return!
Wonderful local restaurant, best Italian in the area. Great food and wine
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
Lovely local hidden away in Catford. Great food and service.
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...
Very friendly welcome and lovely homely food. Sea food, in particular, was really fresh and tasty.
Whenever I visit the Catford area, I always take the opportunity to have a meal at La Pizzeria Italiana, and I am never disappointed. The food is delicious, the service excellent and it is great value for money. I would thorough recommend this restaurant to anyone living in or visiting the area.
Came here once with the family & once with my girlfriend who also really enjoyed the food. Would recommend to anyone. Lovely little place hidden away but worth discovering
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!
Quality food, you know you're gonna get quality. A bastion of the neighborhood, it's been there over 30 years.
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
Good food and friendly atmosphere. Also good wine and choice of Italian lagers.
Fantastic food, wonderful service, great ambiance and just around the corner! Couldn't have been better :)
This place is a hidden gem. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Very large selection of food which is delicious the pizza's are exceptional. This is our go local spot for great food. Never disappointed :-)
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.
Always fabulous, a lovely local restaurant, great for vegetarians epic tiramisu
We love coming to La Pizzeria Italiana. It is such a great authentic Italian restaurant; a little gem in the heart of Catford. It was the busiest I have ever seen it this time round, but it had a great atmosphere. The service was slightly slower than usual, and we had to remind them of a couple drinks they had missed, but considering how busy it was, it really wasn't a problem. A great place to sit and enjoy the evening as they don't rush you through your meal. Food is always top notch. This will be remaining a firm favourite.
Delicious, authentic Italian food and lovely staff. Excellent value. Local gem - will be back!
One of my favourite places to eat, lovely Italian food and amazing pizza. You may need to book a table as the this local gem is no longer a secret! The staff are lovely and the service is quick. If you are a fan of Brutalist architecture and local landmarks then you may also appreciate the location!
Friendly patron and staff, cozy and relaxed atmosphere, great food
This is the third time we have visited this Italian gem in the heart of Catford. With so many chains, finding a local family restaurant we can walk to is a real treasure. Franco and his team are very attentive, the menu and wine list is extensive, and the surroundings attractive and cosy. Children are also welcome. The quality of the food is excellent and very well priced.
This has got to be my favourite restaurant in London. Everything is perfect!
Love this place as a good old fashioned, no nonsense, honest, affordable Italian. Friendly, always kind, always a treat. Franco is a gem.
