If you like classic Pizza, loaded with toppings and with lots of stringy gooey cheese then there is no better in Town. This is no thin crust gourmet pizza, or pan pizza... just good old fashioned pizza.

The Gainsborough is old-fashioned, but sometimes that's a good thing. Convenient location in Hyde Park, unremarkable appearance inside and out, no surprises on the menu (omelettes, burgers, pizza, etc.). But the food is remarkably good, the portions are fairly generous, and the prices aren't bad. Good value for the money, and more flavor than most places.

Stopped by here to try the pizza as it was recommended by a co worker. This is a small unassuming place but it is a hidden gem. The lady who took our order was friendly and attentive and the pizza was great. I know have the problem of choosing between here and byron. Fairly inexpensive too. The only downside is... More

The clubhouse sandwich, the pizza, the panzerotti are very well priced for the quality and quantity you get. And the deep fried zucchini is the best anywhere. The nachos and pizza don't mess around three slices will fill anyone and the nachos need to be three manned unless you're crazy.

What a real gem this place is! I've been a regular for years and will continue for as long as they're open. The place is run by two sisters and their family members. They create such a welcoming atmosphere and always have a few seconds chat in between waiting & cleaning tables. Food is reasonably priced for the large portions.... More

I have been a customer of Gainsborough Restaurant for close to 20 years, and I have never once been disappointed in a meal. The Pizza is one of the best in the city. well worth a try.

What a wonderful family driven restaurant! Talking about quality foods with portions way too big to eat (a challenge to finish their deluxe nachos & I believe impossible for 1 or even 2 persons team); try their "regular" (really impossible monster size) calzone/panzerotti which I guess prove impossible to finish, and their DELUXE!!! Oh lala!!! Talking about value for money.... More

Sure the decor is old, out dated and like a diner - the food and the owners/staff are 100% worth it. They are friendly, kind and caring and they make really great food! Best pizza in London easily. And the homemade burger and fries with gravy = heaven. So good! Love the place!

We came here for a quick lunch during the week. I ordered the chicken souvlaki with fries while my friend ordered the fish and chips. The souvlaki was amazing and the homemade fries were very good also. The fish & chips were another story. The fish is frozen (think High Liner from the grocery store) and not fresh. Two very...
