the food here is not prissy nor is it noveau. It is simply excellent! Try their pastas or their mains and do not pass their thin crust pizza. I like margherita. The wine list is fair if not excellent and suitable to the cuisine. Puddings,,...More

We went there with my husband, make sure you book because the place is small. During summer, if it is too hot, I would recommend to eat outside because it was a bit warm inside. We ordered a bruschetta with tomato, basil and mozzarella as...More

Please to find this restaurant near the apartment we were renting. Very pleasant atmosphere, and lovely food. We were particularly impressed with how fresh the salad was and beautifully dressed. Reasonable prices too.

Unlikely as it is fairly small and certainly gents toilet cramped. Ask them.

In 1994, Red Pepper Restaurant set the standard for independent mid-price Italian restaurants in London by opening its doors to the public. It's secret: authentic pizza baked in its wood-burning oven brought over from Italy. Some of our regulars swear it's the best pizza in London and who are we to disagree? But Red Pepper is not just about pizza. We are dedicated to the best regional Italian cooking, from places seldom featured on most "nouveau Italian" menus - dishes from Sardinia, the Campania and the south; home-made, melt in the mouth pasta; sauces based on game and seafood, grills of the best, freshest catches of the day. Red Pepper restaurant is small, cosy, informal and welcoming. Whether you eat inside or alfresco, when you come to Red Pepper you come to a place where you can feel the pulse of London. Many locals, some of them good cooks and cookery writers regard it as their "second kitchen". It has been acclaimed time and again and been awarded for its honest rustic take on regional Italian food and service through the years.
