With a couple of friends, I visited Cafe Pasta for a weekday lunch. Don't be deceived by the tiny upstairs area, there is a vast downstairs dining area in the basement which is light and atmospheric.

We were shown promptly to our table, and offered drinks more or less right away. We only had a main course each and all ordered pasta, which was tasty and came in sensibly-sized portions. Service was good, and with a Vouchercloud token for one free main course, prices were even more reasonable than normal.

Great for a rest and a wholesome lunch in between shopping or sightseeing.

Spent a great saturday in London, lovely weather and plenty of sight seeing. Found this great restaurant when mooching around covent garden. Lovely authentic italian food, carbonarra and tiramisu to die for. Would definately dine here again, infact have planned next visit to London in few weeks and will be heading here. Not too pricey and informal, good waiter service also.

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant after reading the positive reviews. Unfortunately we could not agree at all with those. Despite the fact we visited on a quiet monday evening, we were left waiting by the door for quite sometime, without no one greeting us. That's fine, they said they did not hear the door bell. We ordered and the starter arrived quite promptly (seriously overpriced mozzarella in tomato sauce). The main arrived even more promptly, in fact it arrived when we were still eating the starter. I asked politely not to be rushed, it was supposed to be a romantic dinner after all!. The main were then left on a counter (not under a light, to be kept warm) and were re-presented to us a few minutes later. The aubergine pasta was over cooked and so was the garlic used for the sauce. The meal lasted in total 12 minutes (the fat bill arrived very promptly too), the atmosphere was terrible and none of the waiters seemed to know what was going on (one of them tried to give our mains to the people next table, waiting for something else). Terrible London restaurant, avoid if you can.
