As well as sites in Shoreditch and Portobello, Soho House’s Pizza East also a has branch in North London, more in Kentish Town than Camden. Like its sister sites, this Pizza East
has the same industrial chic décor, the same ciabatta-style slow-rising dough and the same seasonal ingredients. It’s worth dropping by Wednesday to Friday for their 4 to 7 menu – from 4-7pm you can get a spicy sausage and broccoli or mushroom and gorgonzola pizza for just £7.
Restaurant, Italian, $$$
They certainly got the name right with this restaurant
– it’s smack bang in the middle of Camden, right opposite the market. They offer a good spread of pizzas that make use of a lot of quality Italian ingredients but their calzones are particularly good, being both very tasty and very generous.
Pizzeria di Camden
Pizzeria, Restaurant, Italian
The owners of Pizzeria di Camden
were so committed to making authentic Neapolitan pizzas that they went over there to study the art of pizza making before setting up shop back in London. And it’s authentic all the way – they only use ‘00’ flour, San Marzano tomatoes, fior di latte and buffalo mozzarella from Campania to make their stone-baked pizzas. Try the Verdura, which is split into four quarters, so you can get a taste of both their red and white bases.
Al Parco Pizzeria

With its striped awning and exposed brickwork, Al Parco is a rustic restaurant that turns out classic thin-crust pizzas at reasonable prices. They’re generous when it comes to the toppings too so you do feel like you’re getting value for money – it’s perfect if you need a quick bite after a day at Regent’s Park.
If you need a late night slice, White Kitchen is the place to go as they are open well past midnight in the week and even later on weekends. They keep things fairly simple – the toppings are fairly standard and the crust is very thin and crispy – but you definitely get value for money with the majority of pizzas coming in at under £7.
Restaurant, Italian, $$$
has been serving up Italian food to the people of Camden for a long time and they have rustic food nailed down to a fine art. On the pizza front, the dough is made in-house and only topped with fresh ingredients. You won’t find any wild flavour combos here; they’re either authentic Italian like the burrata and bresola pizza or crowdpleasers like the American hot.
