Description: Combining hundreds of years of the Italian tradition in the art of preparing food with the new style and concepts of the restaurant business, LA PIETRA is welcoming you to enjoy a relaxing evening, an invigorating lunch or a good breakfast to start your day. Whether you are a "foodie" or you are looking for low-calories meals, we offer a big variety of dishes, from which you will have plenty of choices to make your stay in our restaurant perfect. Our chef and his team will delight you with dishes prepared in our traditional wooden oven, served on hot stone plates. All dishes are prepared on-the-spot, nothing is precooked. All vegetables are fresh, not frozen and all sauces are made in-house. Even the pasta and the bread, not to mention the pizza dough, are made in-house, following traditional Italian recipes. We make them using full grain ingredients to give you the best pastries taste you ever had. But no meal is good enough without a tasty wine next to it. LA PIETRA offers an extensive collection of international wine from which you can select the wine of your choice. As the song goes, "A bottle of red, a bottle of white / It all depends upon your appetite / I'll meet you any time you want / In our Italian Restaurant." LA PIETRA also provides a "deli shop" where you can purchase our home-made pasta and bread so that you can take with you and enjoy, at home, the wonderful taste of our pastries. We will be more than happy to have you as one of our patrons and we are absolutely sure you will be coming again. LA PIETRA - The new Italian Style.

Absolutely stuffed. Rosemary Fuccacia was tasty and a great size. I would recommend sharing of you get one as we really struggled to finish our mains. Main meals again were really good. I chose the simple choice of macaroni cheese. It was also well presented although could do with being slightly warmer. And the people in our party who had... More

The welcoming staff were refreshing. Though a full house on a Friday evening, they made us feel happy to stay a bit and wait for a table. An unconventional conversation broke the ice and relaxed a rather pretentious customer. Once seated, the food was up to our expectations, and beyond. The quality of the ingredients, and the way food was... More

went with 2 friends on a Monday night. Food was really excellent in some large portion. Service could have been a little better but nothing major to complain about. And it is a bit pricey.. 150£ for 3 including only few beers - didn't try the wine, but seems to have a nice wine menu. I did recommend it this... More

Met for a Christmas business lunch. Service was prompt, food was tasty and fresh. Pretty decent meal. Would have liked to known that what I ordered was part of a lunch special before I got my bill.

The food was very tasty - no complaints there. However the service was a disgrace. A recent reviewer said that he was treated differently to other diners. So were we, but not in a good way. Two waitresses spent the whole evening topping up wine for a large table of diners whilst neglecting other diners. When I asked for more... More

Was impressed to see we were treated so well by friendly staff using a voucher, as sometimes you are made to feel different to the other diners. The menu selection was good, the portion sizes very generous and everything prepared freshly- we had the hot stone steak for two, only advice is if you like beef well done make this... More

the service felt arrogant and not professional... Prices are similar to restaurants with one Michelin star in London but not comparisons please!!! This is probably the worst eating experience I have had in soho... Well the worst in London.
