Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Proudly Neapolitan, Mozza’s ethos isn't difficult to get behind before even setting eyes (and mouth) on its fluffy dough. Inside is spacious with clean lines, modern tabletops and a monochrome palette. The compact menu offers 13 pizzas, each topped with the best of Italy’s larder: ‘nduja sausage, pesto, salami, olives, and, of course, lashings of mozzarella. You'll be hard-pushed to find similar toppings elsewhere, and the gorgonzola, Parma ham, fig and balsamic jam, rocket and crushed walnuts offering can be hailed a masterpiece. Order placed, you’ll barely clink glasses and say ‘saluti’ before pizzas appear, boasting dough that reaches new heights. It's surprisingly light, dodging that typical stodgy after-effect thanks to the elbow-grease worked into every base; a 72-hour process carried out by Mozza's pizzaioli. Next, it’s laid into the wood-burning oven for 45 seconds and – hey presto! – pizza in under a minute. Between mouthfuls, sip on craft beer from Italy’s first microbrewery, 32 Via dei Birrai, served in wine-sized bottles, and complete your Neapolitan tour with a pairing suggestion from the smiling staff.
