I treated my boyfriend to dinner here one snowy Sunday. The waiter was really lovely, the burrata was delicious, my wine was really nice and both our pizzas were very tasty. We were served very quickly by a very friendly and polite member of staff. I would definitely come again and definitely recommend.

Not Neapolitana (sourdough) which is amazing because London is full of pizza alta (tall).

I wanted to take a young Sicilian friend out for authentic pizza in London. I had read the buzz surrounding L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele but was put off by the long waits, inability to make a reservation and the limited menu. Instead I read up and tried Apollo. My Sicilian friend was not disappointed; he loved the authentic pizza, antipasti and organic southern Italian red wine. This place is a gem. It mixes authentic pizza and bread cooking with interesting locally grown ingredients in a wonderful very small and casual setting. We will return.

One of the best pizzas we've had in london, neopolitan style! The only strange thing we found that even though the ingredients were authentic, no one who worked there seemed to be Italian! That being said the food was delicious and reasonably priced so will most probably come again! Thanks!

Hats off to Pizzeria Apollo ... tough competition for best pizza prizes, but if you like sourdough pizza and appreciate an imported Neapolitan wood burning pizza oven, you'll love what the team are doing in Stoke Newington.

Love the pizza here. There are always interesting specials. Burrata is fantastic as a starter although our pizzas arrived before we'd finished starters and there was no room on table so we just had to abandon them. That could have been handled differently by the waitress. I've got used to drinking wine out of tiny tumblers now. Overall it was good as always and is my go to pizza place in Stokey.

I only had one egg on my shakshuka pizza pie and it looked a bit sorry for itself. The shakshuka was a bit cold too. Wish I'd ordered a pizza. Will try again.

I reserve a table for my birthday there, we was 3 kids and 6 adults.. they put us in a table next to the pizza oven area , very small room we couldn't move anywhere one of the kids is 1 year old and they didn't have a high chair so we keep her on our lap and she was upset and some time was screaming because she couldn't sit properly.. so one waitress (blonde) and pizza chef come to us few time to ask us for the kids to be quiet.. all of us we fill very anxious to make them quiet all the time .. and we didn't enjoy the night at all ! Obviously not kids friendly. Never go back

Second visit to Apollo and although it was not as convenient as other options that I had I chose to go there because the pizzas are delicious. Service is delightful and it is everything a favourite neighbourhood restaurant should aspire to be - not fancy or fussy, just a lovely welcome and tasty food.

Great food - good quality ingredients and plenty of them. Also got to sit on a round table for 7 people, which is something you seldom get these days. Service was a tad slow and would've liked more options for pizza toppings & drinks.

Excellent pizza as always, I don't know where you can get better in London. Good service and a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. We were impressed this time with the range of unusual Italian aperitifs/digestifs. A nice change from the pizza chains you see everywhere. Highly recommended.

Thank you to Pizzeria Apollo for making my birthday meal a great occasion. The basement dining room is perfect for larger parties, the food and wine were top notch and really good value. These guys deserve your custom - support your local independents!

Definitely some of the best pizza I've had in London, maybe anywhere.

Decor is cool and just the right side of pretentious. Staff are welcoming and friendly, atmosphere is relaxed but intimate.

Just needs it's basics tidying up a bit. Service wasn't quite quick enough and a bit sloppy. It's a bit too hot next to the oven too.

Overall though I'm a big fan and will definitely come back.

I arrived late due to transport problems and as I was going to a concert nearby I had very limited time. The team at Apollo did a great job to make things happen for me without at all sacrificing on the high quality of the pizza I had. It is really difficult to get a simple dish like a pizza right but this one was delicious. Very happy to go back if I am again in the area. Full marks for spirit and cheerfulness of the team too.

I really don’t understand what all the fuss about Apollo Pizzeria is about.
The pizzas are decent but I wouldn’t say they are the best in the area and we were really disappointed with the wine list: only one choice of red, a bad organic one; and two (or three?) organic white wine options, all served in water glasses.
We will not be going back there.
