What they say:
With a favourable reputation within Naples' culinary circles, L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele brings its noble name and delicious recipes to North London, opening a new restaurant in Stoke Newington. Staying true to its nature, the restaurant will be run by the director's son, Marco Condurro, and will boast a line up of pizzaiolos, all of whom have been trained in Naples and will ensure that everything plated up will perfectly mirror the original dishes served in their homeland. Framed by delicious Italian fine wines, the focal point will be the traditional margherita and marinara pizzas, seasoned perfectly and produced in the same ways that Neapolitan families have been cooking for decades. The restaurant will welcome its first guests in early 2017.
What we say:
The name L'Antice Pizzeria da Michele doesn't just bounce around Neapolitan circles, but is also well known across borders, featuring in some of the most prestigious travel guides and books. Now arriving in London, we couldn't be more excited. Though a wood-fried pizzeria is certainly not a new concept in the capital, authenticity runs through the spine of this new spot. The team has purposely been selected to ensure that and will unquestionably prove to be big hitters in London's foodie world. Keep an eye out for the name.
