Had my first pizza from Il Grillo tonight. Prosciutto and mushroom. Delicious and really authentic! Ready in six minutes to take home en route from the station - or we could have had it delivered if we'd spent over a tenner. There are salads, seafood, antipasti and pastries in the glass display counter and, for early risers a coffee and a croissant costs a bargainous 2.20! Good to see the place full of takeaway customers and the two tables outside taken up by people eating in (it's BYO if you do). They deserve to do well. Pizza and ice cream (from Crystal Creams) made for perfect movie-night-in fare.

Whenever one's in Anerley Road, think GillW, proud to be its sponsor.

Pavement cafe culture looking a little incongrous in its setting but the food looks and smells very, very good. I will be sure to make use of it on my wearysome trudge home from the station as I explore the existentialist dichotomy the modern man has to face.

My partner has tried the coffee a couple of times and found it wanting :(. Maybe they just had teething problems but with Brown & Green now open at the station, they will have some competition in the mornings. Still, it looks a good place to pick up food in the evening as they are open quite late.

B&G's coffee may cost slightly more, but it's a lot better. Sorry.
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

We paid £7ish for one pizza, which was a little less than we needed for two adults, so I'd opt for a size up if they do one, or one each if ravenous!

Sounds more or less the same as restaurant price. I think it's tough to find a pizza as good as in Mediterranea though. For me the best pizzas in the area. Although the best value ones are home-made!

I love pizzas (I'm human aren't I?) but I struggle to find ones that aren't laden with cheap mozzarrella (tasteless as washing up foam). I much prefer to make my own or to drive Effisio nuts with my outlandish request for a tailor-made pizza (normally tomatoes, spicy salami, anchovies, chillies, onions and a bit of gorganzola drizzled on top). He is endlessly patient.

Damn..... am hungry now :(
