This excellent Italian eatery used to be rather small and often crowded. Now it's large and sometimes crowded. Best book a table at peak times.

Went there a few days before Christmas. Lovely varied meal. The waitress came with a plate of different pastas and ravioli , to explain what they all were. Nice atmosphere and attentive waitresses

I am totally in love with Bottega Prelibato. The decor is beautiful, you feel like you're at home. The staff are super friendly and attentive. They also know the menu inside out, show you the ranges of pasta and offer great wine recommendations. And now for the food... I'm a big Italian food lover and this seriously hit the spot.... More

This is a cosy and laid back venue, but we were a large group of approx 20. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was ok. The platters of burrata and cured meat were ok. The green pappardelle with lamb ragout was average, although the chunks of lamb were tender and tasty. Only the Gnocchi dish with porcini mushrooms and... More

This restaurant was highly recommended and the starters and the wine were promising. The pastas were terribly dissapointing though. Way too big portions, bland tastes and way too heavy. I specifically asked if the pasta was not like a ton of bricks but ended up with the heaviest dish of the table. Actually the heaviest pasta I remember eating. I... More

My partner and I ate there this evening and as much as I wanted to leave a glowing review I can't. The place itself is inviting and homely, a place you feel relaxed in and can spend the evening with loved ones and friends. The staff were very welcoming, efficient and attentive. The starter platter of burrata, asparagus, olives, etc... More

Always reliable simply Italian food. Limited menu. Fresh pasta. Friendly service. It's been very cramped but they've just expanded so there is not more space.

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
