Unfortunately Santa Maria didn’t win the 2010 Time Out Award for the category of the New Cheap Eats. Still very good to make the final four, but hey, after the Best Pizza in London, another award would have been too much 🙁
Santa Maria had the privilege and the honour to welcome and serve its London’s best pizza to Chelsea and Serbia international player Branislav Ivanovic and his family!
Cosang is one of the best Neapolitan Hip Hop band in Italy, and they are one of Santa Maria’s favourites. We had the pleasure and the honour to have them as guests of our pizzeria and they could enjoy our authentic neapolitan pizza. They represent Naples with their music in the same way we do with our pizza, and that’s why they have all our respect and pride.
This is their new video release “Nun me parlà ‘e strada” (Don’t tell me about streets) and we like it a lot!
It has been a week since “Time Out” London’s best pizza issue came out, and definitely it helped us to be more visible. Santa Maria had a success after that review that was overwhelming. People queuing, waiting for a table now is a daily sight. We knew that we were going to be busy, but what happened in the past week was much more than we ever imagined. The consequent volume of people affected our work in many ways. In fact, it happened few times, that we had to close our pizzeria because we ran out of doughs: we couldn’t front the incredible demand. Our first priority has always been deliver a product that matches the high standards of the best pizza in London, and we are committed about this. In order to be able to provide what we want to, some strict procedures need to be followed, and it takes time to combine everything. So, we want to apologize if this commitment caused some inconvenients to our customers, but it is for the sake of our reputation and to keep high the standard of London’s best pizza.
Hope to give the chance to feed every Londoner with our delightful product, and thanking all the customers that with their love and support have made the success of Santa Maria.
Santa Maria loves you all!
