If you’re a pizza lover and are in for a new experience, you need to go to Pizzeria 1926. Here, you’ll find all the classics, as well as a pizza fritta. If you’ve never heard about it (and we can’t blame you), a pizza fritta is a Neapolitan street food that has never quite taken off outside Naples but is extremely popular amongst the locals. The concept is a little like a calzone. They seal the topping between two layers of pizza dough and deep-fry until it’s crispy. Kinda like pizza crunch actually… Did they copy us? Don’t waste any more time and experience it for yourself, you’ll thank us later!

Alongside the classics, their pizza menu proposes a BBQ pulled pork with haggis and roast pepper pizza. Pretty amazing, no? We know you’re intrigued, so why not reserve your table now?
