SquareMeal Review of La Pizzeria

Chelsea Farmers’ Market is packed with semi-alfresco eateries and La Pizzeria is one of the largest on show, with a high vaulted roof, open sides and a terrace hedged with lavender. The kitchen specialises in huge wood-fired pizzas with toppings ranging from a basic margherita with stringy mozzarella and basil leaves to a heavily loaded giardiniera with mushrooms, artichokes, olives and aubergines. So far, so promising, but feedback suggests something is seriously wrong here: ‘my grandchildren can make better pizzas’, commented one reader; ‘gives the London restaurant scene a bad name’, lamented another. Service also receives plenty of flak, from the ‘miserable’ staff to the ‘rude, angry manager’. Prices are eye-watering for the surroundings, even if the drinks list offers a democratic selection of Italian beers and wines. ‘Avoid like the plague’, advises one disgruntled reviewer.

I never write reviews and i created an account just to be able to write one on this place! The food is below average and absurdly over priced! They charge £25 for burrata, £25 for a Zataar pizza, £5 for tomato and basil, £5 for a plain pizza dough, and £30 for 4 eggs! First of all we ordered the burrata and the waiter led us to think that it comes with the Zaatar pizza and tomato and basil but apparently he charged everything seperatley! Not to mention the bread he charged that came with the eggs! We felt ripped off, it doesnt make sense that a dough with Zataar on top costs more than one with meat! When we asked him he told us because its not in the menu! Honestly this is the worst place ever we ended up paying £80 for breakfast and we were a party of 2!

AVOID this place! Food is terrible, and unbelievably expensive. Service is awful, specially the presumed owner (arrogant, and unpolite). Definately not worth, terrible value for money... we felt completely ripen off by them. Please do yourself a favor and AVOID this place!

Horrendous, awful, abismal. Little else to say, I can't think of a place I loath more. Please avoid this place like the plague, it was only after the hideous experience that I read the reviews… Go here if you like: Your service; late, non existant, non commital, miserable… To over pay – think £16 a really average pizza… That when you raise your concerns with the manager he says 'Yeah I agree but in the summer people come here so I don't care..' It nearly ruined a lovely Saturday down to Kings Road…
