About: You can’t go wrong with pizzas especially when it’s by a celebrity chef. No. 1 UK bestseller Jamie Oliver’s pizzeria tantalizes diners with fresh dough on-site and every dish is cooked with impeccably sourced ingredients like high welfare beef, chicken, eggs and sustainably sourced seafood.
We suggest indulging in pizzas like Carbonara, Chicken Alla Diavola and Chicken Tikka, but the real star of this restaurant surprisingly is the Garlic Bread.
