A Casa Mia featured in The Guardian article by Tom Dyckhoff titled "Let's move to Herne Bay, Kent: classic cafes and crazy golf". Tom writes "Hang out at… The pizzas at A Casa Mia transported Marina O’Loughlin to Naples". To read more, click here.

Also, a big thank you to a Guardian reader, 'arghbee' for their comment:

I live at Margate, but take the train once a month or so for an ale or two at Beer on the Pier, followed by A Casa Mia - Marina wasn’t wrong, their pizzas are fab. Herne boasts The Butcher’s Arms, Britain’s original micro pub, a haven of beautifully kept local beers.

Work up an appetite for dinner

A Casa Mia featured in an article in the Food & Wine magazine by David Landsel titled "5 Highly Edible Day Trips from London".  Whilst the feature is about our neighbouring town, Whitstable, he writes:

work up an appetite for dinner one town over in Herne Bay, home to the first certified Neapolitan-style pizzeria to open in the UK, A Casa Mia. The chef began his career delivering you-know-what in Naples, opening his dream spot here after decades of the London grind.

We are overwhelmed by the lovely review by Marina O'Loughlin in The Guardian.

"I pine for more as soon as the last mouthful has disappeared into my face: perfectly airy, elastic dough, the all-important corniccione dotted with little blisters of char, and the centre dressed with fruity, oil-blessed tomato and strings of milky cheese"

Yesterday we managed 177 customers breaking the record since we opened. Thank you for the kind support!

We are so happy and proud to have featured in the in the Sunday Times food magazine, The Dish, in the article Ace of base where Daniel Young picks his 25 favourite UK pizza venues.
