Pizzeria
We are a family run business based in South Wales with a concept of bringing the traditions of Naples to Wales.

Using authentic and protected methods granted by the EU in 2009, our head pizzaiolo’s Gareth and Miranda, trained at the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) School in Naples and are two of a select few, professionally trained pizza chefs in the UK. Neapolitan pizza is considered the benchmark for all pizzas around the world.

Our dough is made fresh the way it's meant to be, using the finest milled flours from Italy and cooked at over 400C in our DEFRA approved Neapolitan oven. We also work closely with local growers and suppliers to source the highest quality ingredients. By selecting a variety of ingredients we introduce flavours and cuisines inspired by the best the world has to offer for our more gourmet pizzas.

Bringing Naples to Wales! Pizza has become our passion and we want to share that with you.

    Having read all the reviews before our visit to Scorchinis we were not disappointed! Our pizzas were divine. Restaurant was fairly quiet for a Saturday night, hope it was just the bad weather that kept customers away. We shall certainly pay another visit soon!

    I recently dined at Scorchini’s pizzeria and was thoroughly impressed with my experience. The food was absolutely delicious, with each bite bursting with flavour and freshness. What’s more, the prices were incredibly reasonable, offering fantastic value for the quality of food served. The service at Scorchini’s was also top-notch the staff were friendly and attentive. While our overall experience was exceptional, the only downside was the wait for the bill. However, this minor inconvenience was overshadowed by the outstanding food and service we received. Overall, I highly recommend Scorchini’s to anyone looking for delicious pizza, great value, and excellent service.

    The food at Scorchini's Pizzeria is absolutely delicious! The ingredients they use are of the best quality, using protected origin tomatoes for the sauce and great quality cheeses. We also had sides of Garlic & Rosamary Focaccia Bread and Fries and they were also brilliant! The price point is definitely good, especially considering the quality of the ingredients. Our server was polite and informative. We would definitely come to Scorchini's again!

    Server Jamie was amazing and couldn’t do enough for us. However the pizza was terrible. When it arrived all 3 pizzas were dripping wet even the crust underneath. Only one member of our party was able to eat their pizza (with a knife and fork) as it was like wet mush. One pizza was hardly touched due to it being inedible , but even so had to pay full price for something we couldn’t eat. Would not recommend the food which is a shame as the staff are lovely.
    Scorchini's PizzeriaResponded on 7 December 2023
    Thank you for taking the time to review us. I do recall your visit as it was bought to my attention. After inspecting the pizza that was returned I can confirm that it was cooked to the exact parameters of Neapolitan pizza. Pizza Napoletana has specific characteristics including the base being 0.4cm thick, soft, elastic and foldable. It is not a thin crispy base which may be a preferred option for some pizza lovers. You were offered an alternative by my staff which was declined and I note that the remaining pizzas were all eaten. It was a shame that you all left quickly before I was able to discuss the matter with you to see if we could improve your experience. I am sorry that this experience wasn’t to your expectations and understand that Pizza Napoletana may not be for everyone.

    Fabulous pizza , absolutely delicious. Will definitely return for more . Limoncello desert also wonderful although expensive for the size of the portion . The venue is very noisy and quite overwhelming when full, so is not the place for an intimate evening . Lovely menu , great service and very upbeat and relaxed atmosphere . Highly recommended overall.

    Mid week catch up with friends. Staff were friendly, and the restaurant was lovely, however it felt a little chilly there during our visit. Food choices were limited, but nice & well priced (some of the food wasn’t that warm though). I enjoyed my glass of wine, but the drinks choices (like the food) was limited. I would go back - hopefully the menu & drink choices will expand as the business establishes itself.
