If you’re looking for some of the best Neapolitan pizza this side of the Mediterranean, come to Carlos. Opened in early 2015, it is housed inside a charming semi-detached home with a gorgeous wood ceiling and tall windows facing onto the street, resulting in a nice balance between classy and cozy. A word to the wise, however, the restaurant is very popular at the weekend and does not take reservations, meaning you may have to face a wait of between 30 minutes to an hour.
The food certainly makes up for the wait, however, as Carlos follows the principles of the Verace Pizza Napoletana Association, serving individual pies with billowy, chewy crusts, fresh tomato sauce and few toppings. The standout pizza is the burrata, served with a light dusting of tulha cheese, fresh basil and four generous scoops of fresh burrata.
Do not, under any circumstances, ignore the starters or desserts. Carlos’ carpaccio is melt-in-the-mouth soft, served with grated tulha cheese and flavourful olive oil, while as far as desserts are concerned, the Apicius, a flourless brownie topped with ice cream, is absolutely delicious.
