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.

We waited 2:24mins for the food to arrive, the meat was untasty. We could see the chef working hard to attend everyone but if you have a business you need to organize yourself for busy hours. The girls from the table next to ours were sleeping waiting for the food which was an uncomfortable situation to see. The place seems... More

Chosen mainly for a convenient location near Aldgate, with dependable Italian food. My friend's mussels' risotto appeared approving and I found the smoked tuna pizza to be novel if overly salty (probably the mix of smoked fish, olives, tomato paste and bread which are all 'salt culprits') and the crust too tough to eat. Mozzarella topping quite thin also, but... More
