All In London Review

Great pizza and Campari cocktails

Review Image
Camberwell just can’t stop providing reasons for us to visit, excelling with its mixed up charm that seems to balance swish new venues with original grit. Theo’s falls on the swish side of things, a sourdough pizza place that provides proof, as if you needed it, that the pared back, whitewashed, minimal look is still the go-to style in 2016. Theo’s takes the look and runs with it, something we had concerns about on the few times we’d walked past and glanced into what looks a little too blank a canvas for our taste. However, get inside, get a little music inside your head, some low lighting and the sound of a rumbling general hubbub and it’s all good. Consider our first impressions smashed, replaced with a metaphorical open-armed hug. Not that we love it, we just really like spending time with it.

Pizzas are huge here and have that special sourdough trick of not leaving you feeling like your meal’s still rising inside of you. They also come as part of a succinct list that takes it easy on the choice. We shared a Napoli Salami along with an Anchovy and Olive - no shirking on strong flavours. Both balance the chewy base and the crisp edges well, with a great tangy tomato sauce that could almost do without its toppings. Pizza is all that’s on offer at Theo’s in terms of food bar some basic antipasti - what more do you need? - but drinks are an extended affair. Wine is reasonably priced and beer is by Kernel but we opt for cocktails. A Negroni Bianco and La Bicyclette are two Campari infused concoctions that have us coming over all sentimental for an Italy we don’t even know - proof of how good they are.

Relaxed, informal, friendly and just as geared towards families as it is large groups and intimate occasions, Theo’s was a surprise that we could make a habit of.
