The Camden Eye is the glue holding Camden together sitting right as the beating heart in a chaotic chest like city, if you like. The upstairs room has been transformed from the little hidden drinking den into a rather tasteful and pleasant restaurant where a pizza menu recently kicked off causing quite a stiff in our belly.With quirky names like How To Impress Angelina Jolie (tomato, mozzarella, crushed black olives, goat cheese, walnuts and caramelised onions) and Steven Patrick Morrissey (tomato, mozzarella, zucchini and parmigiano) the fun has already begun. Loving made in their wood-fired oven using the finest Italian ingredients these pizzas are easy to digest, low in fat and calories so taking the misses here means no moaning about the love handles, peace at last.Opting for the Say Aloha To My Hawaiian Friend (tomato, mozzarella, ham and pineapple) and the The Spaniard (tomato, mozzarella, Serrano ham, chorizo, salami and chillies) the pizza`s delivered on their promise, not to heavy, a nice base, none greasy, plenty of flavour and big enough to fill any void.
Upstairs in the eye would make a great first date, it has that right atmosphere where its quiet enough to chat but not to feel intimidated by the science. Or simply stuff you face and look down on Camden Town and count the roaring police cars going past. Get involved.The Camden Eye, 2 Kentish Town Road, NW1 9NXwww.thecamdeneye.co.uk
