For the last few months, I have heard much about Sacro Cuore in Kensal Rise so I had to go and see for myself. Never one to pass on pizza that is cooked in a brick-fire oven, of course. It was a quirky spot with wine bottles around the counters and a pizza box denoting open/closed on the door. The weather was not ideal for dining alfresco but there is a terrace area (see below) that will be used in warmer weather.
On a recent visit, we opted for the Boscaiola (£8.95) and Campagnola (£9.95) pizzas. I did not have to watching them cook the Boscaiola long; a couple of minutes and it was ready.
The Campagnola was not far behind. The pizzas had thin crusts and had a nice crunch.
Though I prefer the atmosphere of Pizza East and maybe even the pizza, this is a good spot and worth a visit if you are near if you need a quick bite to eat, place to meet friends, or a take away.
Reasonably priced, good atmosphere, and attentive staff…until I get the outdoor brick oven I am dreaming of, I will be back.
