Thi sitalian is my favourite. Unpretentious, traditional, wood-fired pizza oven, consistently tasty menu. Marina Lunga has been around for years - and that's a testament to the owners and their chefs to remain in a food-lovers paradise - Balmain. Arrabatta linguini fungi.

This unassuming Italian pizzeria makes great use of the woodfire to do much more than the excellent pizzas. Try the woodfired Lasagne or Cannelloni and a lovely woodfired apple crumble for example..Prices are really good for pricey Balmain.
