Mayfair Pizza Co

February 8, 2015

Mayfair Pizza Co is the ideal place to go to escape the busy shopping streets of Central London. Nestled in Lancashire Court just up from Hush restaurant, Mayfair Pizza Co is as you may have guessed from the name, an Italian restaurant serving up not only their signature pizzas but numerous Italian dishes such as meatballs and chicken & prosciutto milanese. Inside the restaurant it’s lovely and bright, with the ceiling window letting in lots of light. On Friday it was a beautiful sunny day, bar being cold outside so it was an ideal setting in the restaurant. The kitchen is open-plan and therefore you can watch the chefs cook up your pizza in the big wood fire oven.

After building up an appetite shopping, Danny and I went for lunch around 1.30pm. It was really packed at this time, always a good sign, but this didn’t reflect on the service at all. It was spot on and we were really looked after. Now let’s get to the food as my belly is rumbling looking at these pictures again.

We began off with a couple of starters, I had the salt & pepper squid with saffron aioli, I’m not going to lie, this was one of the best squids I have ever had. The reason why? It was cooked perfectly, not chewy and just so moreish. The only complaint, there wasn’t enough of it, but I guess I was eating squid for breakfast as I hadn’t had any. Danny started with the buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil which looked amazing and tasted it too. We also shared some bread and of course a bottle of wine, is was a Friday lunch after all.

For mains we opted for pizzas, how could you not in a pizza restaurant and with this amazing selection!? For me I like my pizza pretty plain so chose the Margherita with buffalo mozzarella, it was absolutely perfect. A wood fired base, not too over cooked and the flavours were spot on. Danny had the Gourmet, which was something a little meaty with spicy meatballs, prosciutto and chilli flakes which all added a smoky taste.

At this point I was pretty stuffed but just had to try the dessert sweet pizzas. There are plenty other desserts on the menu including sorbet, ice-cream and cheesecake, however the sweet pizzas really stole my heart. The problem was deciding between strawberry, white chocolate and basil, nutella and marshmallow calzone or a chocolate and hazelnut with pistachio ice-cream. Eventually Nutella won out.

Now you may think surely not another pizza, but the calzone with the sweet flavours tastes totally different. Oozing full of nutella and marshmallow it’s the perfect dessert. Think of it as more of a crepe, only it doesn’t taste like a crepe at all – I’m really helpful here. You just need to try it to understand, you won’t regret it, I promise!

We ended with no better way to end an Italian lunch than a shot of Limoncello.

Mayfair Pizza Co is a great place for lunch or dinner and I know we will definitely be going back.
