Providing the pizza loving population of London’s Herne Hill with their traditional wood-oven delights, 500 Degrees have established a reputation as the best pizza place in the area, and when you visit this cosy little joint on Dulwich Road you’ll find out why for yourself. Open seven days a week, take a trip to 500 Degrees’ Herne Hill branch to feast on some authentic Italian pizza in South London – buon appetito!
Serving up their wood-fired wonders in an unpretentious setting, lucky Londoners can head to this Herne Hill joint for a taste of pizza cooked just how it is back in the chef’s native land of Naples and Campania. Using ingredients specially imported from Italy combined with fresh, locally-sourced produce for flavoursome taste, 500 Degrees’ menu is small but perfectly curated. Favourite options include the pizza buffala (buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil and extra-virgin olive oil) and the boscaiola (fior de latte cheese, Herne Hill butchers ham, panna cream, champignon mushrooms and basil).
For an alternative, go for 500 Degrees’ famous calzone fritto, loaded with fior de latte cheese, tomato, ricotta, salami and black pepper. Accompany your pizza with some salad like the ricola salad (rocket, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, pernico cheese, and a homemade dressing). An Italian wine is the perfect partner to your pizza, and you'll find an array of hand-selected red, white and rose bottles on the menu. Book a table at this popular pizzeria in London’s Herne Hill for an authentic Italian experience!
The pizza was excellent and the staff were very helpful. We went at lunchtime on Sunday and it was quite quiet. Someone else recommended that we try here and I would recommend you do too! Thank you 500 Degrees
Table ready and waiting for booking. Great oven cooked pizza, lovely and friendly staff. Especially tolerant of squawking kids. Very handily placed for the circus in Brockwell Park.
Great food and wine - best pizzas we've had for ages. Perfect for a Sunday lunch with the family. Excellent and very friendly service - thank you
