Bella Napoli, 173 Brockley Road

Bella Napoli (020 8692 3301) is the new takeaway pizza place that is seeking to succeed at a spot where a succession of other places have failed. They've gone for the safe option: a takeaway and delivery service in an area still relatively short of good pizza.

The pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven and eschew the oily dough that most local places use. The menu is more interesting than the lowest-common denominator choices we plumped for in the photo above and the prices are good (£8 a pop at the moment), but the ham and mushrooms they used were both disappointing. The team were very friendly.

Some day, someone will open a more ambitious pizza place in Brockley. Until then, this is a welcome addition, that should do well.
