Restaurant Review – The Real Italian Pizza Company, Bath

Well, the will-it-won’t-it snow game came to an end this weekend with a lovely flurry of snow in the South West. It didn’t really settle but, for a few hours, looked beautiful.

Unfortunately with the snow came ice, causing a nasty fall which Ian assures me looked hilarious but has left me with a very bruised knee and a rather attractive limp!

It’s at times like these, when it’s cold outside and you need several layers just to leave the front door, that you want a really tasty and filling meal. Let’s face it; if you leave the house in this weather then it needs to be worth it!

The Real Italian Pizza Company, tucked away on a side street, will not disappoint. This hidden gem of a restaurant is one we go to a lot and we always leave as satisfied customers.

The relaxed atmosphere, and friendly service, is enhanced by the open-plan kitchen which allows you to see the chefs at work as they throw pizza dough up in the air, top them and then pop them into the wood fired oven.

We started with a delicious antipasto platter which included a lovely variety of salamis, cheeses and roasted Mediterranean vegetables; a perfect start to the meal.

Next, we opted for what they do best – pizzas! The traditional wood oven ensures a thin and crispy base with a lovely chargrilled taste. I had one of my favourites…roasted vegetables with a generous helping of goats cheese.

Ian had a pesto and rocket topped pizza (which was a blatant ploy to ensure I couldn’t steal a slice of it!)

They are very liberal with the toppings, which can make it a challenge to finish these pizzas, but the waiters are happy to send you home with a doggy bag and I can confirm the pizzas are delicious the next morning for breakfast too!

I will go as far as to say that these are the best pizzas in Bath so hurry down now and treat yourself! The Real Italian will accept any 2-4-1 deals that you can print off for other Italian chains so there is no excuse not to support this local restaurant.

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
