A friend recommended this restaurant to me and I'm so glad she did! The food was amazing and the restaurant felt authentic! The staff were so friendly and really helpful when ordering your food! Each dish was explained and you were shown which type of pasta your food would be served with. We also had espresso martinis which were delicious!... More

First and foremost the food is delicious - authentic Italian food, fresh ingredients and a frequently changing menu. We all had pasta dishes (Tip: unless you're sharing, ask for a half portion, which is more than enough as a meal for one but, depending who is serving you, may not be advertised), but everything coming out of the kitchen, especially...

We really enjoyed the share plate to kick off our evening, high quality cheese and cured meats. The hand made Pasta was delicious and the broad variety of choices made for a fun debate on what to eat. Note the Pasta dishes are large portions and should be shared,

We have booked at 9.15pm, we had our starter at 10.30, fair enough! We ordered a carpaccio beef and we got a bresaola, there is a big different between the 2 plates, the first is a really thin slice of raw beef, the second 'bresaola' is just cured meat that I can buy in any grocery. After I complained because... More

Dear Patrizia, I apologise about your unfortunate experience, however I can assure you it is an unintentional misunderstanding/mistake. Our staff believe you ordered Angus beef, and that's different to the above .... Tagliatelle is huge, ( as size of the portion or size of pasta?) either way that only prove that we are offering a generous portions and having fresh... More

This is my favourite tucked-away restaurant in London. Every time I have visitors, I always make sure to recommend that we go here. The menu changes every day and the pasta is always amazingly fresh. The portions are huge and the wine list is extensive with something to go with anything. The waiting staff are always happy to explain what... More

Food was amazing and the service was really good. I thought it was a bit weird when she started reading the menu for us but she then took us through the different pasta's and the components to the dish. Highly recommend

Shoreditch and Hoxton are Londons Happening neighbourhoods. It's crammed with great restaurants so it's hard to choose. Wandering around Rivington St. We saw this cosy restaurant and "chanced" it. All I can say is WOW I'm not keen pasta so Italian is seldom an option. However I chose meatballs which where delicious and my friend chose a sensational seafood pasta... More

Had lunch here before attending a family wedding. We were the only customers as it was very early for lunch. We were made very welcome and the food was excellent. All choices were enjoyed and the ambience was just right for our little group. My Dad tried an asparagus starter, having never eaten asparagus before, and it disappeared so quickly... More

Dear Jo, I do personally respond to emails, honestly can't recall recieving any from you. Wonder if you have used the right email address!! To avoid booking problems, we use bookatable, as well as our website to book up. As calls not always attended to in restaurants generally in busy times. As for the wait time, I am afraid you...

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
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.
