There are many pizza restaurants to be found in London, and East London in particular, but few have the air of authenticity that exudes from Goppa Pizzeria Restaurant on Homerton High Street. Their take on Italian cuisine is inspired by their roots in Sardinia, and they have brought the unique flavours of the island to this little patch of Homerton, so book a table and head on over for a feast quite like any other in East London.
If you’re heading out for an Italian meal in London, there are plenty of archetypes that you can choose between. The starched collar, upmarket ossobuco affairs in central London are nice, but pricey and the local neighbourhood checkerboard tables and red sauce joint never fails to offer that homely glow, the truly cool know that the pizzeria is the place to be. If you happen to be in Homerton, then Goppa Pizzeria on Homerton High Street is where you go to fulfill that need.
The Italian menu can be as complicated or as simple as any: but if you do something well, there usually isn’t any need to massively complicate affairs. At Goppa on Homerton High Street you can be sure of a pizzeria that is the pride of neighbourhood and that offers a selection of Italian classics, done well, just like they would make them back in Sardinia. Book a table now and take the train out to Homerton overground.
This place is awesome, first time I've been. Food was exceptional, staff were friendly, and the ambience were spot on. I had a few questions on what exactly some of the ingredients were (which is always good!) and the chef came and personally explained their flavour, showed me what they were, and even let me had a nibble. Both my partners and my pizza's were packed full of flavour - none of your usual run of the mill pizzas. Tiramisu was amazing and the beers were different and lovely! 100% would recommend.
The pizza is simply delicious. One of the best I had in my life and definitely the best one I had in London so far. I recommend it to everyone. Also, it has some charm and romance to the place, good for a date.
We enjoyed great service, amazing pizza and well-priced, delicious wines – it's a wonderful local restaurant on what's otherwise a busy but unremarkable main road. Go.
