We have a wonderful new addition to Todmorden’s culinary & social scene.
Following a few soft launches & dry runs, Site Pizzeria officially opened for business on Friday evening.
We had an early timeslot booked, which gave us the opportunity to take photographs of the restaurant – pristine & untouched.
The décor is perfectly judged – paintwork in shades of grey & cream, industrial touches, an eclectic mix of seating with striking contemporary artwork. There’s a small courtyard at the back, the tables shaded by three beautiful umbrella-shaped plane trees. It will be the perfect place to eat on a hot, sunny day. Winter dining will be a warm, cosy experience too – with a real fire, atmospheric lighting and orange glow from the pizza oven.
We pass the building most days on the way to town centre shops or our antiques centre space – or walking the dog of course. We’ve seen it miraculously transform from a long-disused shop with bedsits above to this wonderful place…
…and much of the hard graft done by owners Natalie & Olly themselves. Every time we passed they were digging, sawing, lifting, or hammering. They’ve done a remarkable job.
And so on to the food – the freshly-made, traditional wood-fired oven pizzas which we love.
Takeaways or supermarket offerings just can’t replicate the delicious flavours & texture of an authentic pizza.
We had some delicious olives & spiced nuts as an appetiser – followed by two of the best pizzas we’d ever eaten – all washed down with a lovely bottle of crisp, dry rose wine. Perfect!
It’s congratulations to Natalie & Olly on what they’ve achieved so far. We wish them every success with their future business and hope to see them there on a regular basis!!
