    Another good Italian pizza in London.

    I love the olive oil with bread they served meanwhile you waiting :)

    Sarracino Restaurant is offering nothing special but good old fashion traditional Italian food.

    The food and pricing is relatively good value. Be warned the restaurant is very noisy and slightly crammed, we have been here twice and found the service staff to be unusually unfriendly and arrogant, their service felt rushed, disinterested and a little sloppy. This detracts from the restaurants atmosphere.

    All in all it's worth a visit for a casual middle of the week eat out. My biggest tip is to  stay away from the salad bar option, it is neither fresh nor appealing. What I've tried on the menu though is good but not great.

    Another unusual thing we observed is you aren't given any complimentary bread unless you ask or order garlic bread..... Very strange.

    I would eat here again if I had no better options.

    A nice place, and its always bustling when I walk by. The service is charmingly friendly and quite attentive, much better than average. We did some times have to ask twice for something like water (tap), and then mistakenly got charged for a drink we didn't order.

    The food is ok but just not something I would really want again. We had one pizza and one pasta. Took half the pizza home, and it didn't reheat particularly well (and I have a lot of experience reheating pizza!). If you live in the area, there are better options, or I would recommend staying home and ordering from Lupa.

    Popped in for an early lunch. A really good choice on the menu with seasonal dishes.  Big portions, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.  The sea bream was good as was the mozzarella starter. The lady wasn't overly impressed with the margarita pizza - the dough was a bit chewy and the tomato sauce a bit too tart. Wouldn't mind trying again though

    Excelent food and service. Great wine too. Definitely a place to visit if you are in the area.

    I don't make it here much but can always rely on a delicious meal whenever I do. Great neighbourhood spot.

    The pizza in this place wasn't bad, but I've experienced much, much better.

    I had the Porto Fino (with porcini mushrooms) which wasn't bad (slightly better than average) but my friend was particularly disappointed with his Calzone. In my search for best pizza in London then this was way down the list.

    The 2 stars I've given may seem a little harsh, as the place probably warrants 5/10 (but certainly not 6). If you fancy a pizza in West Hampstead then I wouldn't disuade you. However for a similar price you'll get a much better pizza at Fratelli du Bufala in Hamspstead (a short walk or bus ride).

    I had a wonderful lunch here. I was there with a friend and I can't even describe the positive attitude that poured on us from the staff. We had some pasta and it was prepared perfectly  not too hard or saggy but just right.

    This is the best restaurant in West Hampstead and one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to in London.  I absolutely love the neighborhood, family owned restaurants and I haven't found many in London that are amazing.  This is the place.  It is always packed and is a favorite of Italian's living in London.  They make the most amazing wood-fired pizzas and are just overall incredibly charming.

    Sarracino is a good Italian restaurant in West Hampstead. I recently went there for a pizza and had a white quattro formaggi. Delicious and quite big. The recently changed house white was also not bad. I just found that the restaurant somewhat lacks atmosphere. When I'm not looking for a pizza, I'd prefer the other Italian restaurant next door  it just feels a bit nicer, perhaps because it's slightly smaller?!

    Really, it doesn't get any better than this for Italian food in West Hampstead. My partner is from New York, where you get the best Italian food outside of Italy, and he adores this place. Both of our dishes were superb, and the service was excellent. The servers were very attentive without being overly so, and the ambience, although nothing to write home about, was perfectly pleasant. The prices are great as well, so you don't leave with a bittersweet feeling, like yeah the food was good, wish it would last me a week since I can't afford another meal now. All in all, we left feeling really happy that we had discovered it, and we can't wait to go back. Great for a mellow night with a friend or partner. Bottom line, Sarracino just is really good food, and they don't kick you on the way out with an outrageous bill.
