Do I remember what we ate? Honestly, no.
If you want a fun night in London, come here. The place is very small and there aren't too many tables, but it's warm and cozy and there's a live band that plays like 4ft away from your table.
It's hard to muck up pizza, and they don't. The pizza is decent and I could eat it forever because as far as I'm concerned pizza should be its own food group. But the ambiance is the star of this restaurant. It would be very hard to come here and not have a good time. It'll inspire you to keep going all night.
Review from Juliana K.
Too cramped, too loud, food and service are below average. Yes, I get the highlight of the place is that they have live music. But are we seriously THAT desperate to hear crappy live music? I think I would rather grab a quick sandwich and go outside to listen to a homeless man singing his version of John Lennon's "Imagine".
Out of all the good restaurants in London, there are way better options for good food and atmosphere. Seriously, unless you are absolutely in dire need of some live singing while you eat and can't find it anywhere else....I would definitely not recommend Ciros.

This place is loud, corny and overpriced. The food is nothing extraoridinaire, and a small pizza will set you back 12 pounds.
Service is slow, and the blaring music will keep you companied for a couple hours after you leave. 2 hours and my ears are still ringing. Its impossibe to hear someone 45 cms away from you.
If you like good food on a quiet spot, this is not the place. Blaring music, overpriced pizza and bad taste? Please, go ahead.

After shopping, my friends & I got super hungry!!! We wanted some sort of "we can only eat this in Europe" food LOL so how did we find this place? We just walked around...
When we walked into Ciros, it was really dark. There were pictures EVERYWHERE. It was kinda cool :) We sat down (asked for Wifi!! yes, they have free wifi) and looked at the menu. We didn't know what to order so we asked our waitress. She was SUPER nice. We ordered Ravioli & Hawaiian pizza. Great recommendation!
Afterwards, we ordered dessert! Souffle! You have to try it. It was amazing :)

I challenge you to name another place in London that offers all of the following:
*An enormous menu with every type of pizza imaginable named after Italian American actors
*Walls covered from floor to ceiling with gratuitous celebrity pictures
*An Elvis impersonator in an authentic white rhinestone jumpsuit
*Aforementioned Elvis impersonator sharing some love on your birthday with a dedication, chocolate cake and pyrotechnic candles
*Lots of room for groups, and a healthy selection of shots (I recommend the greyhounds)

This little pizza place occupies a basement on Beauchamp Pl. Everything's really low-lit... you feel like you're in some kind of little village in Italy - aside from the pics of celebs on the wall who've eaten there.
There's usually live music... but the one time I was there with a friend it was a woman loudly performing a mix of pop/rock on the close stage - this really makes for a very fun and lively environment.
It's honestly hard to decide which pizza to choose from on the menu... there are *tons* of offerings that all sounded amazing... everything from the crazy-unique combos to your standard Italian. Quite a few are named after the celebs who've eaten here - I believe I got the "Humphrey Bogart," which turned out to be a really good-sized pizza...my friend and I each got our own, but we definitely could have shared. The pizzas don't come with a ton of sauce or toppings... and are a little thrown together, but I still enjoyed what I had.
The staff here are also characters... but it's a pretty long process of waiting to have your order taken... and then another long wait for the food to actually arrive.
But this is a great place for a fun night out... as much for the food as for the animated atmosphere.

This place gave birth to a chain of Italian restaurants. For my birthday party I found this jazz cellar. It is tucked away behind Knightsbridge and has a good atmosphere every night. I made a reservation, as we were a group of 10 girls. There are not many tables and it is rather small and charming. The room is all black with no windows. The photos of the stars form yesterday are covering the wall. Ciros is a celebrity by himself; there is not one picture where he isn't Arm in Arm with a star like Sophia Loren or posing with James Bond.
I remember how it got quite stuffed before the smoker ban in there, but not anymore. The band literally plays next to your table, they sang happy birthday and the restaurant even prepared a birthday cake.
Even though this place is named Ciros Pizza Pomodoro, the pizzas are really not for what you go for. The pizza is not a hit. But for the jazz, the life band, the glamour and the fun atmosphere this place is an ass and has to be visited by any Londoner. Every night from 9pm there is life music. Regular visitors know it is all about sharing tables, drinks and good times.

It's rare that I find myself on Beauchamp Place in Knightsbridge. It is not exactly my price bracket. One night though, I was taken on a date here, and thought it was one of the best settings to have a fun date.
This place is noisy, fast paced and does simple, unfussy Italian. It is basically a pizzeria. The pizzas are the best thing to order on the menu. If you can get past the slightly cheesy memorabilia on the walls - the restaurant is a haunt of celebrities of Yesteryear - pictures on the wall are of visits from Sly Stallone, the Trumps, rock stars etc, then you will have a great time.
Sometimes in the week, there is live music. This makes the place even noisier. You may find yourself shouting to hear yourself speak. The price of the food is not that expensive, the house red is absolutely fine, its a fun place to go with friends or a date. All in all, it is worth making the trek to Knightsbridge.

This restaurant serves the biggest garlic bread starter I have EVER seen in my life, its bigger than their pizza's, I swear ... so make sure you only order 1 between 3 (or 2 if you really can't resist and have a tum big enough to cope).
As soon as you enter into the restaurant, you know you are in for an experience - you clank down the metal fire-escape type stairs and as soon as you open the door, the noise hits you!
The decor is very dark and red (as you may expect from the name ... tomatoes!), every single piece of wall-space has photos, posters etc on it - lovely to look at, but you won't be looking at them for too long as the place is just totally mad!
Definitely a group place - you all get piled onto tables where you don't really have much room to breathe, but its all part of the fun! Very pricey for a pizza (think it goes with the neighbourhood) as a bottle of rose wine, 2 pizzas and a garlic bread for starters came to over £70. BUT the food was delicious, the wine served perfectly and I'd much rather pay to eat here and have a fabulous time with people who you don't know - but soon will! - rather than pay to get into a club or bar.
Only given 4 stars because it doesn't sell the worlds best pizza - but close!

Oh I love this place so much! I can no longer count the number of times I have been, and I have never been bored of it, or tired of it's food or ambiance. It's impossible!!
First of all, their pizzas are the best I've had in the UK. And if you don't believe me, take a look at the celebrity recommendations beside each pizza on the menu. (Note - it's often fun to pick your pizza by choice of the celebrity whose name is attached to it).
The service is outstanding and the atmosphere unbeatable.
It's the best place to go with a group of 5 or more - anything more intimate will not experience the overall buzz of the place in quite the same way. After all, intimacy is impossible in such a tiny little restaurant! There is just enough room for a stage at the front, where live music belts out all the songs you know the words to, and by the end of the night you will be dancing with the people at the table next to you, all the while declaring that you have just had the best night of your life.

This place offers some of the best pizzas I've tasted the staff are friendly, and you are sure to have a good time. The decor is very dark, but laden with photos of celebrities who have visited or tasted pizza pomodoro. Its a loud buzzy restaurant, which was perfect for us!

We did not have a reservation, so we had to wait for 2 hours for a crowded table. However, they served us at the bar while waiting and the food was delicious. The place was active lots of action with live music. Best pizzas in London. Check it out.
