Upon entering Made in South on Battersea’s Lavender Hill, you’ll be met with the incredible smell of freshly baked pizza wafting through the restaurant’s charming premises. Although the most obvious draw to Made in South is the authentic Neapolitan pizzas, the restaurant is also well known for serving expertly-baked sourdough bread, which is taken to new heights by the rustic wood-fired pizza – hand-crafted in Naples, the oven reaches temperatures of up to 400 degrees.
Another customer favourite at Made in South is the tasty saltimbocca, an Italian dish consisting of veal topped with a variety of ingredients. Try the scamorza prosciutto cotto & funghi saltimbocca, served with smoked mozzarella, cooked ham and mushrooms, or keep it simple with the alla Napoletana variety complete with ricotta cheese, salami and mozzarella. And of course, the pizzas are a must-try – order the capricciosa (topped with black olives, mushrooms, artichoke, salami and mozzarella) or a classic pizza marinara and prepare to be blown away. Make sure to reserve ahead at this pizza paradise in London’s Battersea!
The pizza was wonderful, the place small and cosy, I really recommend it! I am Italian and it was one od the best pizza I ever had.
Best pizza in London! Real Italian pizza and great service, I'm Italian and I always go to Made in South with my friends, even though it's not close to my place, definitely worth the trip!
The best pizza in town! Fresh ingredients, friendly atmosphere, fire wood oven, great bruschetta, fantastic tiramisù and very good espresso. The tomatoes in the bruschetta were awesome.
Very nice place with amazing pizzas! Friendly staff and good price. I'm sure to come back here again next time I'll want a good italian pizza. Recommended!
I love a restaurant that know what it does well and focuses soley on it, in this case its pizza. 100% you have to try the burrata on top of your pizza. It takes it from great to amazing! We had a lovely italian waitress who was very attentive and quickly answered any questions we had. Between the four of us we ordered the made in south trio for entree (reccomended), diavola (reccomend for spice lovers it was beautiful with the burrata), Margarita funghi and prosciutto, foccacia rosmarino and pizza tango. We probably ordered too much food but it was all so good!!! Everything from the service to decor and atmosphere were 10/10. The restaurant fills up quickly on a Saturday night so bookings are reccomended. Don't be deceived by its humble surroundings and frontage, this is the best pizza in London hands down.
Don’t be fooled by the simple décor. This place is AMAZING. By far the best pizza I have ever had outside of Italy (maybe even including Italy) and I have had my fair share. The owners are Italian and this eatery is authentic to its core. The restaurant is simple and small, and the menu is classic. The service is friendly and efficient, and the prices are very reasonable. There is literally nothing not to like about Made in South! Top tip: the staff will always offer you a ball of buffalo mozzarella or burrata on top of your pizza – I took the plunge, it was amazing, but it is massive, so perhaps share one between two.
This is some of the best pizza we've had outside of Italy. They have mozzarella di buffalo in several forms. Great Caprese salad, burratina, prosciutto, cotto ham, excellent tomatoes and rocket - all so fresh and delicious. Nice thin-crust pizza, cooked in a wood-fired oven - very authentic. It's a little bit outside the City, but totally worth the drive! Try it - you'll never eat pizza from a regular pizzaria again.
Definitely the best pizza I ever eat in the UK. But not only that. It was one of the best pizza I ever eat in my life and I come from Italy. The wood fired oven along with fresh toppings put the pizza to another level. I`ll go back to Made in South the next time I`ll travel to London.
Truly the best authentic italian pizza cooked in the very best traditional wood oven. Great service by the staff who made us feel at home and fantastic food. Great atmosphere, nice background italian music too. After a good pizza for dessert I recommend the Straccetti di pizza con nutella very tasty. Overall a wonderful experience!
This is one of the best and most traditional pizzas you can find in London. Not only the pizza is good, but also their selection of starters and desserts; plus, everything comes at a decent price. The staff is very welcoming and nice, I will definitely go there again.
Best pizza in London. I really struggle to find a good Italian pizza (I'm Italian) in the city; other places have just heavy pizzas with cheap ingredients or just not Italian style. Made in South is like stepping into a small pizzeria in Naples...I want to go back now!
As others have stated, this restaurant serves probably one of the best pizza in London. It's the best I've tried hands down. Everything else is also consistently very good, from the house red wine to the tiramisu at the end. The aubergine starter is a personal favourite.
Excellent food, fantastic service, we didn't spend a fortune and we had a fantastic dinner. The perfect antidote to Franco Manca and other fake Italian pizzerias! I forgot to mention the desserts: just two on the list but simply fantastic. Can't wait to go back!!
Pizza was amazing, very generously stuffed with meat, veggies and cheese! Stuff was very warm and friendly, we even got limoncello shots on the house. And importantly prices are very reasonable, specially for London! Strongly recommend to everyone!
A bit of a hike. But totally worth it! It was quite delicious!! A small little Italian restaurant with very friendly staff that went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying our time there.
Small local restaurant, friendly, welcoming, good food and service! We have now visited a number of times and have always had an enjoyable experience. Starting to get busier so advisable to book for peak times.
I have eaten in this restaurant several times over the last couple of years and have never had a bad pizza. The service varies but is always friendly, vibrant and very Italian. The pizzas are about the best I have had in London, a great little local find.
I love Made in South and have been going their for years. Their Pizza Vesuvio is fantastic! Best Pizza in London in my opinion. Friendly staff and great food at reasonable prices.
Very good. Best pizzas in London. I recommend the pizza with Salsiccia and Friarelli. The latter are a kind of broccoli which you only find in Naples (and now Lavender Hill).
Great pizza, one of the very best I have had in London so far. The staff are really nice and welcoming, I will definitely go more often in the future.
