We had been meaning to try Pizzeria Pappagone for quite some time, but finally one Friday night, it was THE night. Just up from Finsbury Park station, on Stroud Green Road, this pizzeria always has a queue of people. We were lucky and got a table after only waiting for 5 minutes.
It is definitely a lively restaurant and all the waiters shouting things in Italian to one another gives it a very authentic feel to it.
Jack had the PIZZA CAMPAGNOLA £8.40 which is a pizza covered in spicy salami, olives and artichokes and I had the LINGUINE AI FRUTTI DI MARE £9.90 which is a linguine with a tomato, garlic and white wine based sauce with seafood.
The pizza is similar to the pizza in italy, with its doughy, chewy bread and wood fired oven baked.
The pasta was stunning – al dente – and rich with flavours.
