L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele comes to Soho's Old Compton Street - taking over Patisserie Valerie

19/2/20 - updated with the opening date.

What: L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele Soho

In a nutshell: Top Neapolitan pizza in Soho

Summing it all up: L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele are opening their second London restaurant in Soho - and you can expect the same huge (and hugely popular) Neapolitan pizzas from the original. Plus fried pizzas if carbs just aren't enough...

The low-down

As spotted by the eagle-eyed Rambla's Victor Garvey, the hugely popular Neapolitan L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele is about to get a second site in London. They're taking over one of the Patisserie Valerie cafes (which has gone through some turbulent times of late) on Old Compton Street. That was the last of their outposts in Soho, where they first started out on Frith Street in 1926.

The new Pizzeria will be serving up the same pizzas that you can currently find in Marylebone (there was one in Stoke Newington, but that changed after a legal battle over the name). There will be huge Neapolitan pizzas, with the plain Marinara and Margheritas being the main events. Here's what else is on the menu:

  • Napoletana - tomato sauce, agerola fior di latte cheese, cetara anchovies, oregano, capers and seed oil
  • Fried Pizza - cicoli (pressed pork), salami Napoli, agerola fior di latte cheese, ricotta cheese, pecorino romano d.o.p. and black pepper * fried in sunflower oil *
  • Truffle Mushroom - (champion 2019 London Pizza Festival) -  agerola fior di latte cheese, white truffle cream, mushrooms, pecorino romano d.o.p., fresh shaved black truffle, basil and black truffle extra virgin olive oil
  • O’Cazone - tomato sauce, cicoli (pressed pork), salami Napoli, agerola fior di latte cheese, ricotta cheese, pecorino Romano D.O.P., basil, black pepper and seed oil
