Square Meal Review of Santa Maria ?

Opened on Valentine’s Day 2010, Santa Maria is the real deal for lovers of pizza – complete with congenial young Neapolitan owners & a traditional Italian wood-fired oven. It’s a tiny place & queues are common (there’s a no-bookings policy), but provenance is important here – from the Caputo flour used for making the crisp pizza bases to the La Donzelletta mozzarella in the toppings, & the Gelati Oddono ices for afters. Perhaps start with some garlicky focaccia or aubergine parmigiana, before deliberating on the choice of nine pizzas: the San Mattia with mushrooms & truffle oil is particularly alluring, or you might fancy a calzone stuffed with salame & ricotta. The drinks list is also a concise read, with wine limited to ‘red’ or ‘white’ by the glass, bottle or carafe, plus beer from Peroni.

    The Bean Spillers :: Santa Maria, South Ealing

    We have visited Santa Maria a number of times so thought that it was about time we added our own review to the mounting positive editorials that they’ve gained over the past two years. Located on St Mary’s Road (hence the name), Santa Maria is a Neapolitan pizzeria with a proper wood oven. Authentic is the name of the game, with the pizzas coming out all different shapes but they are always big with generous toppings and stay true to the region’s traditions. Featuring a few pizzas without tomato sauce and NO PINEAPPLE, this is a refreshing alternative to the standard Italian chains that monopolise London. Offering takeaway and eat in, this place normally requires a 20-30 minute wait for a seat in its tiny premises, just long enough for a cheeky pint in the next door pub. Santa Maria only makes pizza so don’t expect to order a salad or meat dish but its definitely worth the journey if you love your pizza!...
