Hot new London restaurant openings: May

Santa Maria Chelsea 

Santa Maria

Ealing’s most famous export – Santa Maria Pizzeria – has set up shop in Chelsea near to the football club’s grounds on Waterford Road. Consistently voted the best pizzeria in London, the second site will be overseen by owners Pasquale Chionchio and Angelo Ambrosio.

Nestling between between the King’s Road, Fulham Road, and Stamford Bridge the 60-cover restaurant serves up the same pizzas and daily specials as the original, from the Santa Caterina made with tomato, mozzarella, Neapolitan salami, fresh chilli, and parmesan, to the Santa Paola, featuring mozzarella, nduja, mushrooms, and rare breed Yorkshire sausage.

Pizzas are blasted in an oven allegedly made with sand from Mount Vesuvius. Specials include meatballs stuffed with ricotta, smoked mozzarella, and nduja and aubergine parmigiana.
