Not sure Waitrose would want another site at higher rent when they have one on St John's already? Gandy's has re-opened with advertising stating "pop-up shop", so I guess that's another big site up for grabs soon.

There are an awful lot of empty places now but retail is harder than ever. Not only have we all caught the internet shopping bug, most of us have less money in our pockets to spend and the economic uncertainty of Brexit. A perfect storm.

Walked by the former ParkRoad Kitchen shop this morning and saw a planning notice advertised. It's going to be a Manifesto restaurant, which according to the planning application, does pizzas. Not clear on the documents whether that'll be a kind of take away pizza place or a sitting down one.

So now it’s pizza all the rage as opposed to beef two or three years ago? I’m fascinated how the financial services company will work on the old cluttons site.

Hi, I am the founder of Manifesto, we're very excited to be opening in Northcote road where I lived and worked for many years. I know there is already a lot of pizza on the street but Manifesto will be organic and will be offering a very different kind of service for both eat in and takeaway.
We'll be announcing a local soft launch soon, I hope you can make it to see what we've done with the space and try some of our food!

Count me in if your pizzas are thin and crispy. The opposite of Franco Manca and Made in Italy would be good!

Looks like Jan restaurant at 78 Northcote Road is reopening with a new concept -- "Home of Good Food".

Buona Sera has been delivering exactly that for many years!

Oh do you mean serving up as opposed to delivering?

Yes, apologies, badly worded.

Although it does look like they do deliver via Deliveroo.

Welcome to Northcote road Vittorio and best of luck with your enterprise! One small point worth considering.. please, please can you not make your pizza's too salty? Its my biggest bug bear with Made in Italy and Franca Manca. (I can't comment on Buona Sera as I prefer their pasta and salads!)

Sounds promising. Is that under the same ownership or different? I was sad they did away with the little wall Lolo Roja had that you could sit outside at.. it brightened up that corner. Similarly.. I find the large slab of meat hanging in Marcellaio's window really off putting, which is a shame as I love Tapas.

Perhaps its the warm weather but I'm all for alfresco eating at the moment!
