Food and drink
You could eat in a different West Hampstead eatery every night for a month. Here, variety is the spice of life – Italian, Japanese, Indian, Thai – the list goes on.
Just off the high street on Broadhurst Gardens, this authentic Italian joint has the best pizza in the area and is a foodies heaven.
It’s a lively bar upstairs and a solid Italian restaurant downstairs. They’ll probably have the football on if there’s a match on, but somehow it still works.
