More about Pappa Roma, London

Pappa Roma’s head chef Nicola has over 30 years experience, trained in the heart of Italy, and gracing this South Kensington Italian restaurant with a presence that guarantees the quality of the cuisine on offer. He picks the olive oils and many other of the vital imported ingredients himself, supervises the pasta and pizza prep, and it’s his culinary encyclopedia of recipes and gastronomic nous that keep this special southwest London kitchen ticking over. Early in the morning, the area’s only traditional wood-fired oven gets warmed up, and in go the foccacia and ciabatta ready for the first guests.

That oven keeps going all day, turning out hand-stretched pizzas that are proving incredibly popular among South Kensington locals. We recommend the signature Pappa Roma pizza, a perfectly balanced twelve-inch pie topped with mozzarella, grilled courgette, cherry tomatoes, Burrata cheese and Parma ham. The full a la carte menu is classically structured, as you should expect from any Italian restaurant in London with a worthy claim to authenticity, with the homemade egg pappardelle with Italian sausage meat, courgette, cherry tomato and truffle cream at the top of our list of the restaurant’s pasta dishes. Further or, Ssecondi piatti like the Scottish beef or sea bass are an irresistible lure to Pappa Roma’s Glendower Place address.
