SquareMeal Review of
Pizza Pilgrims Covent Garden
A pizza joint named for the owners, whose love of pizza drove them all the way to Italy and back. Thom and James Elliot tried their product on the streets of London from the back of their Piaggio Ape van before settling down in permanent premises. This is their fourth bricks-and-mortar restaurant (following two in Soho and Pizza Pilgrims Exmouth Market), and diners can expect the same formula that has made the others so popular: classic Margheritas for the those who like it as it’s always been, the spicy Calabrian N’duja pizza for anyone who’s after a bit of fire, and the Nutella and salted ricotta pizza ring for sweet-toothed customers. Drink Italian or English beer and listen to old tunes; you can even enjoy a game of table footie while you wait.
