My sister took me to this place with its mirrored walls. I was very impressed, I had the classic diavola pizza and salad to go with it. I adored their wine list too.

I love this place; it is ancient and has one of the best feelings when going in. But all in all the food was still top notch .

Having studied in Lancaster for 4 years and eaten at many establishments, Pizza Margherita has been one of the very few places that has always lived up to my lofty expectations. I genuinely don't understand how it's not rated higher! The service is always efficient,...More

Fortunate enough to get a booking 2 hours prior. The pizzas were just the right size at 10 inches diameter, that’s 31.4 square inches of yumminess. Not too much to force yourself to pig out but just the right size to not feel overly indulgent.
