13 Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden, LONDON, WC2H 9DP (map)
Homeslice, the popular streetfood pizza vendor has opened its new permanent home in the colourful Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden. Known for their appearances at StreetFeast Food Market and occasional ad-hoc experiments with other streetfood vendors. Can the team succeed in this quirky location?
There are a handful of good new pizza specialists in the London streetfood scene. Homeslice is one of them. Most recently seen at Kings Cross Filling Station and a common sight at several streetfood locations last year. (Note that Shrimpy’s restaurant has now taken this area and will be opening ‘Shrimpy’s Outside Grill’ from Thu 16th May 2013). These guys were known for their interesting ingredients including blue cheese and walnuts, plus experimental combos including ‘Bone Marrow, Spring Onion and Watercress’ (available at the new venue).
The site in Covent Garden was the site of former pizzeria ‘La Piazzetta’ which frequently featured in restaurant discount schemes such as Tastecard. However, I don’t know anyone who visited the venue in that incarnation.
MENU (as of 07-May-2013)
By the slice (£4) or as a 20″ pizza (£20)
- Finoccia & Rocket
- Courgette & Artichoke
As a 20″ (6 slice) pizza only

Obviously it is too early to give a verdict on the restaurant as it’s only just opened. However, the space looks great, the oven looks fantastic, the pizzas are of the same high standard we expect of Homeslice and they promised that the menu will change regularly. Get down and let me know what you think!
