Unico28

28 High Street, Hampton Hill, TW121PD  | 020 8977 5858  | unico28.co.uk 

Tell us about your venue.

We are a small local restaurant serving authentic Italian cuisine (pizza, pasta, mains, antipasti)

What’s the secret to a perfect pizza?

The pizza base is all about the dough (flour, water, yeast, salt, olive oil). Our tomato sauce is made from San Marzano peeled tomatoes and mixed with Evo and sea salt, while fresh Italian Fior Di Latte mozzarella gives the pizza a sweet, light and delicate flavour. Our toppings are always imported Italian ingredients such as spianata, prosciutto di Parma, scamorza, Burrata, Taggiasche olives.

A wood-fired pizza oven is a must! This heats indirectly at high temperatures, which creates a charred crust and a rustic, smoky flavour.

Which pizzas do you recommend for Valentine’s Day?

Our best seller is the artisan pizza with all the ingredients imported from Naples, but we also offer a set menu for Valentine’s Day, which can be viewed on our website (where you can also book a table!).

We’ve been open since 2016 and we pride ourselves in using top quality fresh ingredients imported from Italy. 

What’s the secret to a perfect pizza?

Our pizza is Sicilian; it has the right balance between crispiness and softness and, of course, it’s cooked in our beautiful wood fired oven. The secret for the perfect pizza is love – our pizza is delicious because we love what we do!

Which pizzas do you recommend for a romantic Valentine’s meal? 

Our Montagnola pizza, which has wild rocket, Italian sausage, wild mushrooms, truffle oil and rosemary, which is believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac.

What’s the secret to a perfect pizza?

We are well known for our freshly made pizzas – our dough is made daily. 

Which pizzas do you recommend for a romantic Valentine’s meal?

Salami is our most popular pizza, but if you don’t fancy pizza, you could try Rucoletta, with rocket & parma ham, or our Penne Romana, with chicken, cream & pesto. Our Seafood Risotto is also very popular, but you could also choose fillet steak, seabass, chicken or a vegetarian option.

Arthur’s Pizza

Twickenham Green, TW2 5AB | 0208 893 3995 | arthurspizza.co.uk | @arthurspizzatg

What sort of atmosphere can we expect?

Located just on the edge of the Green, Arthur’s is an idyllic venue to gather with friends, dine with family and relax from morning through night. We have our 5th birthday on February 16th too, so we’ll be celebrating in style with a full week of goodies from the 14th to the 20th Feb.

What’s the secret to a perfect pizza?

Oh, it’s a secret for a reason! However, the dough made here at Arthur’s is made with the freshest of ingredients and we include a whole lot of TLC.

Which pizzas do you recommend for a romantic Valentine’s meal?

A little bit of spice may see you pick the Diovola or Americana; if you’d like to be traditional then a Napolitana and Margherita are a good choice! Also we have a variety of vegetarian and vegan pizzas and all pizzas can be made gluten free.
