Fire & Stone is located in the touristic area of Covent Garden. It was the party menu 1 for £14.95 per person.
For that price you get a glass of Borgo Magredo Prosecco which was good, some Italian breadsticks served olives, a choice between 5 pizzas and as dessert a selection of Italian ice creams (average).
There were two vegetarian pizzas (Athena and Byron Bay) and 3 non vegetarian pizzas (Canberra, Cape Town and New York). I chose the Cape Town (pepperoni, ground spicy beef, mozzarella, tomato sauce and mild chilli, topped with fresh basil & oregano) which I found bad… The toppings were quite bland and the base was heavy and crunchy on the edges, nothing light and crispy.

Booked in group the tables were big but the rest is more like a cafeteria with all the tables in rows.

Cost and conclusion:  for about £15 (plus an “optional” 12.5% service charge added to the bill). you can expect better even if it is in a very touristic area. I would recommend the pizzeria Zizzi in the Strand at 2 minutes walk from there (73-75 The Strand, London, WC2R 0DE).

    A friend of mine had been raving about this place, so I finally went a few months ago with a colleague from work as they had (still have?) a slightly deceiving £5 lunch deal, where you can 1 of 3 or 4 pizzas + a soda. I was sorely disappointed. I just had a classic margherita, and it was wholly uninspiring, especially as the ginourmous oven is such a feature of the place. It wasn’t very crisp and was just average tasting all around. I think I’ll head elsewhere when my stomach begins rumbling for pizza next time.

    In the area, Zizzi is a much better choice: http://www.trusted-gourmet.com/2009/06/italian-restaurant-zizzi-73-75-the-strand-covent-garden-london-wc2r-0de/
    I will do a revisit next week.
