News, events and insights at Caffe Portico.
Do you like authentic Italian Pizza? The kind of pizza that makes you feel like you’re in Naples and tastes the way real pizza should.
Here at Caffe Portico Sim prides himself on making pizzas authentically, hand stretching the dough, topping it with a home-made sauce and simple fresh ingredients. Serving it straight out of our hand built wood fired pizza oven.
Our menu is bursting with Italian flavours with favourites such as the Calabrese; a fiery concoction of salame picante, nduja sausage and chilli. The Boscaiola, a hearty pizza with mushroom, Redhill Farm sausage, backed with fennel. Or the Quattro Stagioni, a combination of ham, mushroom, artichoke and olives making up all the four seasons. But let us not forget the classic Margherita, where simple ingredients cooked to perfection makes some pretty tasty pizza.
If you would like to join us at our next pizza night call 07956653156 to book a table.
For those who don’t know yet, a few months ago Sim built his very own Wood Fired Pizza oven. With help from his friend Adam from VDuo Motorcycles he put it into the back of a Piaggio Ape. Now we are bringing you Portico Pizza Nights, where we serve the very best in traditional Neapolitan pizza.
We make our Pizzas by following classic Neapolitan methods. Sticking to traditional flavours, we hand-stretch the dough, top it with simple fresh ingredients and cook it at over 400C in the wood fired oven, giving it that authentic smoky flavour.
The first few Pizza nights were a real success and we are so happy with the support from all our guests. Aside from the food, the best thing is definitely the atmosphere. Come and relax with friends and enjoy a dining experience perfect for an easy Friday evening.
Over the next few weeks and months to come, we will increase the frequency of our Pizza nights in response to demand, so don’t worry if you miss one. If you want to try fantastic Neapolitan style Pizza, let us know and we can book you a table at the next evening, which will be on the 1st of April. Call Sim on 07956653156 to reserve a table.
