Review: Il Gelato is actually an ice cream/dessert cafe. It has recently started serving pizzas so I went along and took a margherita home in a take-away box.
On initial thoughts, the pizza didn’t look very appetising. I was disappointed when I tasted it. The cheese had no flavour and had just been kind of thrown on. The base was thicker at the edge and a bit soggy in the middle. Its texture was rugged and interesting, but the taste let it down.
The tomato was the highlight of this pizza – a rich, thick sauce with a lot of delicious flavour. Unfortunately the cheese and the base let it down.
Overall, it wasn’t really a pizza – more like a piece of bread with tomato and cheese on. It’s intended as a snack. I’d much rather go to a restaurant for a proper pizza.
Would I have it again? No – I’ll stick to Il Gelato for desserts!
