We live in Chiswick so when we are in the mood for a pizza we naturally choose Franco Manca on Chiswick High Road rather than heading south, but a few days ago we decided (at last) to give Pizzeria Rustica a go.
The place is small and cosy, pleasant looking, but… that’s it. I have to say that we haven’t tried anything else apart from the pizza, but we won’t come back ever again.
First of all they use an electric oven (if I wanted to eat a pizza baked in an electric oven I would’ve baked it at home), secondly the pizza was extremely crispy (I mean, crispy is fine, but when they bring you something that looks more like a flatbread than a pizza…) and last but not least their pizzas are simply overpriced.
As italians, pizza lovers and foodies we left this place extremely disappointed and with the feeling that we wasted more than 30 pounds. We’ll definitely continue to choose Franco Manca with their brick oven, their amazing staff and their fair prices.
