ANOTHER ONE?!?! Do they get bulk discount on tomato sauce if they’re located in HOP?!?! There must be a reason for this !!
That’s not actually Honor Oak Park is it? I agre though it’s becoming like Pizza Palace
My kingdom for a decent Mexican place!!!
I’m still trying to work round local pizza places and we do love the Chandos. As long as it’s a proper restaurant. Last thing that stretch needs is another take away with mopeds roaring up & down…
That used to be a curry house many years ago
I think we have pizza covered already
I think pizza is popular as it is relatively easy to setup for and attracts a wide crowd - difficult to do properly but the kitchen setup seems to be quite simple. See the Chandos - tiny little kitchen but it manages to make lots of great pizza.
This is pretty local to me so I am glad to see it put to use but whether it will tempt people away from the established places nearby must be in doubt. There is so much nearby residential that it must be possible to make it a going concern but I’d love to see something like a Japanese\Korean\Malaysian or similar but that’s just my taste.
That little parade of shops is looking quite sad so I would be happy to see anything there! The newsagents closed a while ago; Small World Coffee has been closed every time I have walked past recently; the motorbike shop seems to have closed too.
Bike shop is reopening from last weekend’s activity. Agree there’s a need for a supermarket I think.
There’s defo no mopeds and slices of pizza on sale in the new restaurant planned
Hi there I’m Diana my partner is Alberto who will be opening up the restaurant with katia & her partner Roman we have between us 3 children Nicholas Natalie and Peter ️
We are two young families who have more than 30+ years experience in the pizza industry and Alberto being Itaiian should help
we all actually meet each other many years ago within our work environment, jumping ahead & a few kids later, we thought times about right to at least try something we’ve always wanted to do … hence the restaurant !!!
We hopefully would like to achieve to run an authentic Italian pizza restaurant, that will be a family friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy !!!
It’s a long road and learning a lot about patience permits planning & legal stuff, as so many legal matters & working with the community police etc etc but getting there slowly…
Please feel free to pop in ask any questions & have any concerns
Have a look around & who knows what will happen!! … hopefully we will get to know the locals & be known as a friendly family run place to relax and enjoy x
Can’t wait to visit once you are open! We are just down the toad and need something like this that we can easily walk to. Excellent!
I hope you will have an Italian coffee machine!
Only a couple of streets away, will definitely visit when open. Good luck!
Hi Diana, great news about the restaurant. Do you have a name already and a planned open day?
Hi Diana, welcome, we are just around the corner so happy to see something opening there. As well as pizza it would be great if there was a couple of salad / pasta options too - a classic bolognese sauce goes down well with most children I know!
Glad to see the bike shop has reopened (under a different name) so it’s looking a bit better now.
Hi Daffodil ( loving ur name )
I can defo confirm pasta & salads will be on the menu… the variety will be adjusted according to demand
all feed back will be taken on board and menu will be adjusted according to needs … of course at the being we have no idea of what’s going to be the demand so will be trail and error … so please bear with us, again feedback and suggestions are more than welcome as again we will be finding or feet …so to speak !!!
We had an open day for 2 months ago
It’s amazing how time consuming each planning and job can take !!!
Mid October is the target at the moment … yes we have the name but think pull have to keep looking out for the sign
Thanks Diana. Wishing you all the best in the final hurdles.
I wish you luck, but the absolute last thing this area needs is more pizza.
Best of luck, pleased to see a new business coming to the parade- hopefully your presence will encourage other business into the vacant premises next door. All the best! X
Went past on the bus this morning and saw they have fitted their sign ‘Pizzarte’
I hope they do real Italian gelato for pudding! I can’t seem to find any really good gelato despite so many Italian restaurants nearby!
Sorbets and gelatos in Le Querce are great. All home made and some really interesting flavours.
We’ll definitely come and try your restaurant out once it’s open. Best of luck!
Lots of progress, it’s looking good guys. Good luck x
My partner and I checked out PizzArte last night. The proprietors welcomed us warmly and the pizza tastes authentic and delicious: thin crust with high level ingredients (parma ham, spicy sausage, rocket…). We ordered a delicious bottle of chianti (might go for a cheaper option next time) and a ceaser side salad with juicy anchovies and a tangy garlicky sauce.
While I agree that SE23 already has some excellent pizza restaurants, this part of Brockley Rise is not exactly blessed with culinary or retail delights. For those of us living nearby PizzArte offers a cozy and appealing local option. The menu has Italian pasta and salad dishes and desserts. I get the idea that they are playing to their strengths and sticking to classics. I wish the friendly proprietors well, and will be back!
I walked past this morning and it looks really smart. We’re very local and hoping it’s good (and family-friendly…)
I think it will be a great addition to the Neighborhood- friendly, welcoming and very professionally-run. Families will definitely appreciates the warm, clean ambience.
Feeling all emotional reading these lovely comments thank you so much
Between us we have three children 4,5 & 25 years old … yes that’s right I’ve not added 25 by mistake lol …I’ve a twenty year gap !!!
We really do have first hand experience with kids, specially trying to keep them entertained whilst dining out …
Of course all kids welcome.
We have colouring for now but hoping to have a little toy box or even a little child friendly play area … just bare with us.
Thank u to everyone that’s popped in to wish us luck, so hoping to have some childcare sorted so I can come in and mingle with u all when you come in …
but be warned I can talk the legs of u x
Welcome to the area, I walked past today and had a look at the menu, looks good! I am hoping to pop in soon as I live very close by
Do you have a website or Facebook etc?
Great news - I have always considered myself a bit of Pizzartist.
So excited for you all, looking forward to coming in with my family to taste your culinary delights. Good to hear you are child friendly, so many places in the area are not.
Congratulations for your new venture
I was also very curious so took my family there last night. Lovely place, the pizza was fabulous. I’m so please they have opened and really do wish them well on this new venture. Will definitely be back, its great to have a new local. Looking forward to seeing how the menu develops, and I hope to see more pasta choices soon.
It’s best practice to check the profile of reviewers. Are they verified? If not, have they been active in the forum, in other areas and topics, before posting the review? A first time user who reviews a company may not be a local resident, but may represent the company or its competition. While this does not mean the review is not genuine, it does call into question the reliability of the recommendation.
Can you stop posting these photos please - they’re driving my salivary glands crazy!
Agree that fantastic though the pizza is some more pasta options would be good too. Cabonata? Arabiata? Even the classic bolognese would get my vote.
Does anyone know if they offer gluten free bases for the pizzas? Also is there a menu available online - seen one on deliveroo but know this doesn’t always include everything available in the restaurant?
Hello! I personally have known about this group since I moved to SE23 over a year ago (Elsinore Rd) but have only been spurred into joining yesterday to review this place as it seems they are yet to have a tripadvisor, Facebook or google account active for me to post about it.
I went a couple of nights ago and had a very nice spinach & ricotta cannelloni. It all tasted very fresh. Agree more pasta choices would be good. Great to have a nice restaurant so close.
We are from Bravos Motorcycles around the corner from Pizzarte and we’ve been paying attention on how much effort and passion these people have been putting into this restaurant. We really want our neighbours to succeed and help bring life to this forgot corner. So we tried them last night and it surpass our expectations. Best authentic Italian ingredients, friendly service at reasonable price. Godspeed guys!
Just had our first dinner here. Great to have a local pizza restaurant - attentive staff and nice pizzas. Would have liked the base to be more crispy though
I don’t like pizza (yes, weird) but the other food is right up.my street NOM NOM
I did try to eat there on Saturday with the family, a bit after 6pm, and it was full bar a couple of tables for 2, which is a good sign (though not for us!).
Will try again in the near future and report back.
Sunday night was quiet, only 3 or 4 other tables when we went in about 7.30. Excellent antipasti plate and delicious pizza, toppings almost to the edge so no excess crust, Great coffee and a shot of limoncello to finish, couldn’t manage the tiramisou as well so will have to go back. Great addition to the area, those people that moaned about another pizza place should go along. Very friendly and welcoming, good service, nice atmosphere.
Can anyone share a pic of the menu? Or do they have a website I just can’t find?
What worries me is that we have quite a few pizza places to eat now, and can they all survive?
My prefference is Bona @BOnA_Pizza but I don’t often eat pizza (weirdo I know )
But the cotto ham and field mushroom combo is always a winner for me by them.
I would love it if new food establishments would offer something different like authentic Spanish Tapas, authentic Italian home cooking. I love veal piccata but can’t get it quite right myself, traditional Mexican would alsp be a winner for me, thats not fajitas and tortillas BTW
Getting hungry now, ahh well toast and tea before bed
Hopefully pizzarte is far enough away they wont eat into each others trade too much- that side of forest hill is a bit under-served.
Absolutely yes to a Mexican place however- that would be awesome!
I walked past on Tuesday evening. It looked very attractive with lots of lights. But there was no-one in there.
Tuesday was such horrible weather though. I had actually planned to go on Tuesday but couldn’t face the walk in the rain!
We went this evening and were very impressed. Great, friendly service. They’ve done it up really nice too. Food was excellent and we would recommend the tiramisu for sweet. Looks like they have collection and someone from uber or deliveroo arrived too.
Excellent to see a restaurant at that part of town. Will be back soon. Preaching to the converted but let’s support local businesses!
Hi guys! I have notice this Pizzeria and looking at the picture…seems very delicious!
Do you know if they are open today Monday as well?
They looked like it when I walked past earlier
Well tried it tonight 30/11/18 ,service excellent food good room for improvement nothing serious,they use bought in food don’t make their own dough no sourdough so will reserve judgment till ther up fully and running out of ten 6
Congrats on the opening! My partner and I went to PizzArte on a week night and it was great to see the place filling up from 8pm onwards. We both ordered pizza+wine and loved it. After London being taken over by a sourdough pizza craze it’s so nice to have an authentic thin crust pizza with just the right amount of delicious ingredients on it. My aubergine + goat’s cheese was a winner!
We are definitely coming back soon, but I had a question/suggestion I hope you’d consider…
I was wondering if you’d consider curating a more bespoke playlist for the place? It’s such an important part of the experience and it would make a huge difference. We would have stayed for another glass of wine had there been some relaxing/relevant music playing in place of the UK top 50 charts. Jazz, lounge, chill, there’s so much of great Italian music that would do the trick and I’m sure people would stick around longer because your food, service and drinks are so delightful! There are plenty of options pre-built online depending whether you use a service like Spotify or YouTube.
Congrats again and thank you for opening PizzArte for all of us to enjoy!
See you soon
Thank you so glad you enjoyed your visit…
yes you have made a good point unfortunately We’ve had a few hickups concerning the music:(
We are awaiting for the electrician to finish off wiring the system we have in place as yet it’s not up and running :(.
I’ve beenPlaying from my beach playlist from my personal music …u may have heard Ed Sheehan a lot !!!. I’ll be working tonight and will update and create an alternative playlist … thank you for your feedback x
Thank you so much! Look forward to hearing the new sounds next time we visit
PizzArte gets a big thumbs up from me!

Hi Andy merry Xmas
Yes we do takeaway
You can either call in your order and then collect, Come in and order
Or you can use deliveroo x
As i live very local to this restaurant i thought i would finally give it a try. I saw that it was available on Deliveroo but because of my close proximity i decided to phone in an order and collect myself. I was not disappointed. After experiencing the worst ever pizza from Domino;s (New Cross) a few weeks ago, I had one of the best pizza takeaways ever from Pizzarte. I ordered the Quattro Salumi and it was very tasty and pretty authentic.
Top tip: ignore your chain restaurants like Domino’s and support your local independent ones like Pizzarte.
Yep, we (finally) ate here after arriving back from our Xmas with family on Saturday night - nice thin pizza and a wide range of toppings for everyone. Great to have it at the top of our road and hope it does well.
Visited for the first time today - really reasonable lunch special, and very tasty food. I took my laptop to get a bit of work done and didn’t feel rushed to leave as soon as I’d finished my lunch. Glad to have something like this in this part of SE23!
I don’t think they need it because they’ve had lots of positive views already but i just wanted to echo those comments and say what a lovely time we had there yesterday.
Four of us went Friday night and i was pleased to see it was busy. We were surprised at how pretty it looked! Food was great, but the service is what will make us come back. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and they even gave us complimentary shots of limencello at the end!
From speaking to a member of staff, they have plans of having an outdoor eating area in the summer which sounds lovely!
We went this evening - very good thin crust pizzas, my slow roasted aubergine one was lovely. As we are not drinking this month we didn’t try the wine list but were pleased to see Orange Crodino on the menu - a very good non alcoholic aperitif and a welcome change from lemonade!
Service was good and very friendly.
Went here with a group of friends last night. Am a bit late to the party but had a great time.
The interior is much nicer inside than you expect- I’m not sure from the outside you can see how warm cosy yet spacious it is.
Food was great and service lovely.
Will definitely try on a weekend with toddlers as they have lots of space, many high chairs and even toys.
I’ve been a couple of times now with the kids - I really like it.
Pizza is always a subject of much debate but I really like these, and the staff are very friendly which makes the experience all the better.
Had three pizzas from pizzarte via deliveroo yesterday, really good and a decent price, will be ordering again soon!
Thought I’d give Pizzarte another mention. We’ve been twice in the last month or so with the kids. Always great friendly service and food, but one thing this place was build for pre-covid was social distancing - it’s always had tons of room between tables. They do takeaway of course but if you want somewhere to sit inside, space wise this will be up there.
I just had Pizzarte pizzas for my Xmas eve lunch (delivered via deliveroo). They were delicious! Kids have said it’s their favourite pizza in the local area. High praise. Recommend!
