In 2011 after a couple of pints, the team behind Pizza Pilgrims quit their day jobs, and found a three wheeler called Concetta to take them around Italy on the ultimate Pizza Pilgrimage. Their mission was clear, they needed to bring proper Neapolitan pizza to London.
Since then they've opened a string of pizzerias, all with their own personalities, starting first with their cosy little spot on Dean Street in Soho and now their latest joint, The Pizza Playground, right in the heart of Canary Wharf.
The Playground does exactly what it says on the tin, they've got outdoor foosball tables to enjoy with a spritz on the waterfront, large outdoor seated terrace, and an old school pinball machine to keep their 16-player foosball table company in the basement. Pop in for a drink, pop in for a pizza, pop in for some big kid fun.
Like pizza and Nintendo? Who doesn't! Head to The Playground for your 'perfect night in, out'. They have a semi-private area with two Chesterfield sofas and the new Nintendo Switch console with up to four controllers playing everyone's favourite chaotic racing game - Super Mario Kart Deluxe 8. There are packages available to book from £20pp you'll get a 'delivery' of pizzas in boxes and 2 alcoholic beverages with access to the Nintendo gaming area. The Playground can cater for up to 100 people, but smaller groups are also welcome to take the space semi-private.
Anything goes in the Playground.
