Probably the best pizza me and my partner have had in London for years. If you like your pizza this is the place to come. We were served by Tony who was lovely and very helpful with wine recommendations. We will definitely be coming back!!

Upper Street offers many restaurants but for authentic home made pasta La Forchetta delivers on every level. Casual friendly environment, great service and most importantly damn good home made food. Cancel your ticket to Rome and enjoy delicious pasta locally!

This restaurant is the perfect chilled spot in Angel. Nice calm soothing atmosphere with great customer service and chilled lounge music. The food was really good, tasty and authentic and waiters polite, funny and very attentive. Definitely a must try.
