The only pizzeria in the idyllic Cornish fishing village of Port Isaac, The Angry Anchovy is a quirky spot offering traditional Italian pizzas during the evenings. The tiny restaurant uses both local produce and some ingredients imported all the way from Italy to create pizzas with a twist. Welcoming customers of all ages as well as furry friends (who will be offered complimentary dog pizzas, if well-behaved), The Angry Anchovy is a fantastic option for a casual dinner for the whole family in the heart of Port Isaac.
This isn’t your traditional restaurant by any means though, as The Angry Anchovy is actually based in more of a shack than a building. Sitting above the village’s port, the small green shed has space indoors as well as a few tables out front for al fresco dining. The inside of the pizzeria has been kept incredibly simple with little by way of décor and wooden table spread around the space, but it’s nonetheless incredibly cosy and has an air of the bohemian to it. If there isn’t space at the Angry Anchovy, there’s no need to worry though, as you can also order pizzas to take away.
When it comes to the all-important pizzas, the dough used is prepared fresh every day as is the tomato sauce, which is made using real Italian tomatoes. There are also gluten free bases available, which have been imported from San Francisco. Pizzas range from the simple, such as a classic margherita, to more unusual combinations like the “Cornish pastis” which comes topped with fennel and anise salami and rocket. A range of sides are also available at The Angry Anchovy including sweet potato fries, and a garlic pizza base with pesto and mozzarella.
In terms of drinks, there’s a variety of wines, spirits, beers on tap soft drinks to choose from to have alongside your pizza.
