Listen in, listen Ian!
What's a good proper Italian pizza place in the West End that it would be easy to get a table for two at early on a Thursday evening without having booked?

I have a soft spot for Icco on Goodge St. The pizza is good, but it's not somewhere to cozily linger over a bottle of wine - more like a student canteen.

Also known as the Italian Coffee Co. for some random reason, but yes this is very much a good spot for a cheap pizza but not for a date by any means! Much better would be the Trattoria Mondello nearby on Goodge St, which is also cheap and cosy tho I can't attest to their pizza (it's more generic Italian).

Just stay away from Rossopomodoro as it's rubbish in my opinion. Beyond that, not really sure. There's loads of Italians, but the current buzzy pizza places (like Pizza East) are elsewhere.

The most truly authentic Italian pizza experience in the West End is at Pizza Hut on Oxford Street. Order the Teriyaki Japanizza - Teriyaki sauce, Oriental chicken, mixed peppers & red onions - and a side order of Cheesy Nachos or Hot 'n' Spicy Chicken Strips with Texas BBQ sauce. That and a bottle of their finest Pepsi Max.

Are you sure about this? I'd heard very good things about Pizza Hut on Charing Cross Road - the salad bar is said to be outstanding - but never about this place on Oxford Street.

They've gone downhill since they stopped calling themselves Pasta Hut - their onion rings were great even if the "fries" were more like "chips", I mean dudes, sort it out.

I want pizza I want pizza I want pizza. I would probably poddle along to La Porchetta on Old Compton Street and in fact NOW I MIGHT. I will sit at the table next to you and giggle. Like always.

Dunno about whether you should book or not.
