About La Pia

La Pia might be a new name in the dining scene in Ladbroke Grove, having only opened in 2016, but their name goes back a lot longer than that. The restaurant was founded back in the old country, in the Ligurian town of La Spezia in 1887. There are five spread across the north-eastern region, and now they’ve come to Ladbroke Grove, bringing their authentic take on the traditional pizzeria to this part of West London.

More about La Pia, London

Here at La Pia there are classic Italian pizzas such as margherita, marinara and quattro formaggi, as well as lesser known topping combinations like the central European-style wurstel, with chopped hot dog, the salsicca, with Italian sausage, and salsiccia i friarielli, with sausage and Italian broccoli. The original La Pia back in the old country originally specialised in just one dish – farinata, a local specialty made from chickpea flour, but here at this modern London incarnation of the restaurant, the menu is as broad as Italy is long.

That said, you can still find farinata on the menu at La Pia’s Ladbroke Grove location, topped with stracchino or gorgonzola cheese, pesto and onions, or matched with a margherita pizza. Cheesy focaccia, a great selection of antipasti, salads and sides round out the selection, all best washed down with an Italian wine. Indeed it can be difficult to get to La Spezia itself to experience the flavours of Italy, but if you head to La Pia, you can taste them for yourself in Ladbroke Grove: simply take the train to the eponymous tube station, or the overground at Kensal Green. Just remember to book a table, however, as this Italian restaurant in West London does get busy on occasion.

Loved La Pia and will definitely return often (to put this into perspective returning involves a 45 minute drive each way). Excellent focaccia di Recco and farinata, friendly efficient service. I only wish they would open South of the river.

One of the best Italian restaurant in London. We were greeted by a friendly staff and we had a really good focaccia and farinata. We will definitely be returning in this restaurant.

Such amazing food! Being from Liguria myself, I can vouch for the quality! They really know what they are doing. As well, the service is incredibly quick and they are all very friendly!

A genuine treat for Londoners to have La Pia on our doorstep. This is one of best pizzas you'll find in Italy and it is exactly same recipe as in La Spezia! We are very fortunate ... Amazing ! Must have Foccacia Nutella ! And Foccacia Stracchino

I'm a regular customer at La Pia in La Spezia (Italy) by over 30 years and I'm very happy they opened up in London as well so I can taste their fantastic Farinata and Pizza when I'm in London too.

A perfect example of how Italians (or spezzini in this case) only need simple, homespun ingredients to create wonderful food. The farinata speciality from the Ligurian-Tuscan region is an absolute must for this place, preferably in combination with the pizza. Alex

An outpost of the classic local pizza and farinata shop in La Spezia, genuine, unpretentious and popular with Italians so the real thing folks! Tiny premises and the same limited menu but worth the diversion to Ladbroke Grove.

Food was really tasty and all the guys there so kind. We had farinata as starter and then the Portofino Fovaccia. I miss Genova a little less now!
