|Putney Home To World Cup Pizza Champion|
Il Divo offers great pizza and more
Pizza is a popular choice in this family but there are some in the family who would like a different option and we not disappointed when we chanced upon Il Divo on the corner of Putney High Street and Weimar Street.
The welcome was warm in this long thin restaurant and, with a hot summer promised, it is nice that the doors can fold back offering pavement dining on Weimar Street. At first glance the menu seemed restrictive but in reality the restaurant offers diverse choice.
The decor is rustic with bare brick, and a mix of wooden & tiled floors. In the rear corner you can see the pizza chef creating the pizzas & garlic breads in the pizza oven. Other foods are cooked in the small basement kitchen.
The pizza got the thumbs up - and so it should as pizza chef Marco Fuso won 'The Best World Pizza Champion' award in November 2013. Marco competes ever year and demands "only the purest of flours in the bases and the freshest most fragrant ingredients for the toppings".
The wine list is offers a choice of eight white and eight red wines (including house wines) plus a rosè and a prosecco - all Italian. Prices range from under £15 to £35.
The bill including a glass of wine, some Peroni beers and a lot of sparkling water. (Why don't restaurants offer large bottle of water?!) and coffee came to £104 excluding service for a family of four adults.
