Not many people venture to Streatham, the post code that refuses to posh up, but a new pizza/trattoria is well worth the journey finds Nick Harman.
Such simple things pizzas. A base, some toppings, a bit of fiery heat and bob’s your uncle. A good pizza is a thing of beauty, one of the few ‘fast foods’ I actually enjoy rather than force down reluctantly. But ‘good’ is hard to come by and it rarely comes on the back of a moped.
If you buy a delivered pizza from Addommè it will come in a car, most probably driven by co-owner Stefano and it will be fantastic. An Italian from Capri who spent many years in the UK, working as postman amongst other things, before setting up Addommè last year together with his wife Nadia. They have what is, for many people’s money, one of the best pizzerias in London.

The best Pizza in South London? There’s plenty of competition but new trattoria on the block Addommè is certainly giving the likes of Franco Manca a run for their money. Obviously I was delighted when a new pizza place opened up in the neighbourhood and I was hoping it was going to be a goody, I wasn’t disappointed.
Family run by native Italians, Capri to be precise, you can guarantee a warm welcome at Addomme and this service with a smile continued throughout the meal. Now I know I have focused on the pizza here, and they are amazing, but Addomme also serves a wider menu with changing daily specials including meats, fish and pastas. The starters on offer range from brushetta to potato crocche. I went for a mixed started of the later with risotto balls and crispy aubergine strips, all were delicious and it was nice to see something different on an Italian menu. Pizzas were of course the go to choice for mains and are cooked in the wood fired oven. I was impressed with both the quality and quantity of the toppings and the base was spot on. I shared half and half, one of mushroom and cooked Italian ham, the other mozzarella, parma ham, cherry tomatoes and rocket. I think I’ll be going back to work my way through the rest. They are also delivering in the locality so you can also enjoy from the comfort of your own home!
“Probably the best Neapolitan Pizza in London... by people who care about this kind of thing!”
This very unassuming place serves up some of the best pizza in London.
This place is better than Santa Maria, Rosso, Franco, O Ver and all the other Neapolitan pizza places that do excellent pizza in London.
Why? The ingredients/sauce all top notch. The sourdough base is delicious. But the crust is what makes this place better than everywhere else-- it billows, but is still crispy and charred. Best crust in London. Wow. Decent value at £7-- and a steal for the quality. No wonder this place goes to the national pizza competition every year. I'm surprised it's not already a chain.
I had a tiramisu that was a solid 8 despite the cream/biscuit ratio being heavy on the cream.
Service super-friendly, esp to my family.
1 minute walk from the train station.
I am going to go back with friends, work colleagues and family soon. I want to try the rest of the pizzas and some pasta too. WOW!
