I am not often stumped for choice at a restaurant, but here I was. I had an entree and main but found it difficult to choose two dishes that went well together. With a heavy emphasis on fresh pasta and not a lot of choice for the carnivore in me it took a while to decide. The meal was good,... More

This small charming Italian Bistro is located on Rivington Street in Shoreditch area of London. The service is professional and the food is spectacular and very fairly priced for authentic italian cuisine. My wife and I thought we were back in Catania, Italy. Al the dishes are simple, fresh, italian favorites. Discover Italy in London.

This tiny restaurant on the back streets on Old Street is an absolute gem. The menu, which changes constantly, is fully explained (it takes 10 minutes) to you from a chalk board by a very enthusiastic and knowledge waitress. They serve delicious, uncomplicated, fresh Italian food -lots of variety and something different from your usual Italian favourites. Good wine list... More

Authentic Italian cuisine and such a warm and lovely atmosphere situated in one of the liveliest parts of Shoreditch! The service is friendly and very welcoming, dishes are delicious (do try the gnocchi's and the tiramisu!). certainly one of my favourite dining spots in London!

I love this place! They probably have the best pasta in London and it's rightly priced. Great service and lovely cosy atmosphere. Definitely among my top 5 picks in London

To be fair the food looks quite excellent. I have heard rave reviews from colleagues who go often and all enjoy the food and service very much. Sadly, I waited for 60 minutes after ordering and no food arrived, not even bread while I waited and not a peep from the waitresses. I had to go back to work very... More

Hello Thank you for recent review and many apologies for the unlucky experience you had which is totally our fault. Unfortunately the day you came was our most serious change of guards on the morning management. We basically changed all lunch staff in one go due to the Summer period and the new workers had to find their way to... More

The restaurant itself is quite cosy and seems to be a family business. We went there for Lunch and were greeted by a charming and friendly young lady. They have menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner which are constantly changing while keeping their best sellers. The tapas were quite nice but the real treat was the main course. We ordered... More

In a very small street close to Old street tube station you can find an amazing Italian restaurant . You would think you are in Italy . The pasta is excellent and the menus change very regularly such that every time I go thee is a surprise. The staff ( half Italian and Spanish) are very friendly . Not cheap... More

So said my colleague when we accidentally discovered this fantastic restaurant. Yes he was right! They change the menu everyday so no point talking about what we ate. The pastas were fresh and very nice. Big portions and some very unique starters. Highly recommended!

We went to Bottega Prelibato on Thursday for the first time. Many reviews have already commented on how the regularly changing menu is brought to the table on blackboards so I won’t go into any detail about that. There are 5 or 6 options for starters, 3 or 4 for pastas and then 3 mains. When I mentioned I was... More
