Mimmo La Buffala

Mimmo La Buffala says

Using his experience as founding member of the global Italian chain 'Fratelli la Bufala', Mimmo has decided to move forward with his own brand - 'Mimmo La Bufala'. Now an "indispensable fixture of hampstead" (Hardens 2012), the restaurant serves healthy and traditional Southern Italian cuisine with a contemporary flare. With many awards and nominations over the last 8 years, Mimmo's restaurant showcases the gastronomic heritage of Naples with critically acclaimed pizzas, pasta, fish and meat dishes. Unlike many other restaurants that claim to cook pizzas the Italian way, Mimmo's real wood-fired oven ensures extraordinarily tasty and authentic pizzas, using the finest, Italian toppings.

Pizzas are good but the service was awful, rude, unhelpful and total lack of attention. Everyone seems to take away their pizzas from here and it's clear why.

Visited in a very mixed group including toddlers, Italian and English foodie relatives and all were delighted. The focaccia starter was delicious and the closest we have ever come to real focaccia in 15 years in England. Not only that but it arrived promptly, thus keeping the children happy. The starter of mozzarella di bufala was very fresh, well-presented and proportioned, while the fritto misto and gnocchi were excellent- the latter truly fresh and clearly handmade: soft, light and just with the right amount of sauce. Only two small criticisms stop me from awarding full marks: the pudding selection, which was uninspiring, and the quality of the loos which, while clean and well-stocked, were out of keeping with the rest of the restaurant. We will definitely go back and recommend it to friends.
