I can’t really complain about how things works here in the UK. I’m in love with the Royals and on the whole the way the country is run, BUT I believe that start bombing here and there will just mess up things even more so I’m not totally proud of the country I’m living in at the moment..
Anyway, I’m not here to talk about that and you, dear B&G lovers, know that very well! I am here to talk about PIZZA and its many healing skills…
Am I the only one thinking that pizza is one of the best things ever invented? Probably not!
Some say it’s an Italian invention, some says it’s Turkish, some others says it’s Egyptian… I really don’t care who gave birth to that orgasmic mix of flavours – All I care about is eating as much pizza as I can and make sure I always get to try the new good pizza meccas in town…
… Like ‘Pizzetta’!
I was invited recently to try some pizzette at their South Kensington branch (Thanks Charles for that) and both me and my sister (100% Italians) were very impressed for the following reasons:
- Atmosphere: Great and very Italian! A lovely Christmas tree with Panettone boxes as decorations, a warm smell coming from the combination of coffee/hot pizzas/love/fresh ingredients and a big TV where you can watch both Serie A and Champions League.
- Big choices offered even without a menu: Don’t expect to go there and waste your time reading a menu – Time is very important when it comes to pizza eating so just walk in, choose 2/3 slices, order a Peroni or a coke, take a seat, eat!
- Lovely staff: Valentina’s smile and kindness will make you forget about pizza for a second or two and that in my opinion kinda says it all.
They also do Italian Aperitivi, with good/cheap Spritz served and some pizza for free, so if you’re bored of the Premier League and watery pints served by grumpy bartenders head down to Pizzetta to see Serie A, drink/eat some good stuff served with a smile and, if you’re in the right mood, learn some proper Italian swearing.
For more info check their website: They have two branches at the moment (Victoria and South Ken) with a third in Mayfair coming soon.
Can’t close a blog post without adding some music stuff…
Thursday 12th November – Gutterdämmerung screening/teaser – Kentish Town Forum
Henry Rollins, Grace Jons, Jesse Hughes, Dave Catching… All together on the same stage for some good loud music and a little teaser of Gutterdämmerung, the loudest silent (not really silent though) movie ever existed, which also features Iggy Pop, Joshua Homme, Slash etc.
That was such a fun and at the same time unusual night, where everyone walked in without knowing what to expect and walked out with a big satisfied smile on the face.
If you’re curious and would like to know more you should take a look at the video here below:
Jesse and Dave were having such a great time on stage and it gives me the chills thinking that the next day they almost lost their lives playing the Bataclan with their band Eagles Of Death Metal…
Have a great Christmas everybody… And watch this space as I might be writing about some family Xmas time cooking real soon…
Peace, Love, Death Metal ❤
