Pizzeria
Rubio is the brainchild of Max Reich a self-confessed foodie and music lover.
Spending over 20 years in the music business, Max had always dreamed of a place he could create that catered for his love of great food and also be a relaxed and enjoyable space with a great soundtrack.
He’s enlisted the help of long-term musical partner Simon Marlin who he enjoyed many years of success with under The Shapeshifters guise and launched in September 2016. With the boys long-term roots in West London it was always going to see Rubio begin its adventure close to home.

My son and I went there for coffee and chai. It was very pleasant, nice and chilled just what we were looking for and we really enjoyed the drinks.

Had a really lovely family night out at Rubios. Pizza's were absolutely delicious, just a bit heavy on the cheese for our normal taste, but next time will just ask them to use less as the flavour was amazing. Really good value for money and great food.

As always the food was great, fresh and delicious, great value, and the Atmosphere and clientele as well. Unfortunately the booking system is just chaotic. Online booking made a week in advance. Email confirmation received. We Rang on the day to Double check and no, they had no record of the booking. Ok....Phone booking made then and there - but when we showed up - no record of that either. 🤦‍♀️ All tables full. The manager moved a couple of staff who on their break to free a table for us - but this is pretty poor really. Our first time out in over 4 months - could have lived without the hassle. Service was ok but the current staff nowhere near as friendly as the previous ones . To be fair maybe they are a bit wobbly after long closure. Hope things will shape up soon.

Rubio is a great little place with amazing brunch food throughout the day and thin crust pizza in the evening. We went in the evening this time and caught the last live music session. It's really set up well for listening to music! So hopefully, as more people discover Rubio, they'll be able to resurrect this night.

Service was excellent and went the extra mile. Music policy seems to have changed and wasn’t keen as seemed to be a radio station. Food was great.
