This Story started around 12 years ago in a famous pizzeria in Brixton Village .
This pizzeria was the first place where all this passion and experience came from.
Already pizza chefs in Italy, the team of Cinquecento pizzeria worked for 2 years time at the first Franco Manca that was ever opened. It was there that we saw this incredible pizzeria make so many pizzas per day, around 700-1000. From there the dream to start London’s best Neapolitan pizzeria was born, 10 years later here we are at Cinquecento.
Of course our experience is not only based at Franco Manca but also at Santa Maria pizzeria which today is still one of the best pizzeria’s in town.
The Cinquecento team worked for 7 years at Santa Maria, which for many years was the undisputed number 1 in London, until now!
Our dough is fermented for 48 hours and is 67% of hydration, this makes our product a very special treat that will be very easy to digest.
Our ingredients are 100% Italian and are all DOP ( Denomination Protected Origin)
Out Tomato sauce is San Marzano and grows only in volcanic area of Campania, for this reason taste like sugar without any other seasoning.
We had the chance of find this beautiful spot in the heart of Kensington and Chelsea, and finally we have realised our dream of making the best pizza in town in this fantastic neighbourhood.
The shop itself is super cozy and all of our staff are Italians, which adds to the authentic and traditional experience.
A true Neapolitan pizzeria with recipes just like Nonna used to make.
