The restaurant has a slightly run down and tired feel to it but that is belied by the service and the quality of the food which in my view was worthy of more than we actually paid. Two course lunch was £9.75. Bottle of Montepulciano £14 Waitresses were friendly and slick without being in your face.

Don't write negative reviews often but i was not in a good mood after being at this restaurant, mainly cause of the waitress who served us. Asked for some parmesan for my bland pesto pasta and she was like "Be patient lady! I have it". And then she proceeded to giving me about a pinch of parmesan. Also tasted the... More

Meeting my dad at Highbury and Islington station gave a wide variety of choices for dinner, but La Pasta looked good and was close. I am really pleased we took this option, the staff were friendly and welcoming and there was no rush to order. We both took a special of liver and chips. The liver was cooked to perfection... More

Have reviewed this place before, as we tend to use it when going to gigs at the nearby Union Chapel, but thought it worthy of further praise. We got there a little while after our other pair, and they already had starters, so we gorged on their olives, of which there were plenty. Mains consisted of a couple of calzones,... More

After having Londoner food for several day, it's good to try other food. Found this pasta shop near the subway station. It's our great decision to have lunch there. Pizza is so good, cheesy & yummy. We order several Pasta dishes, it's great as a service. So impressed. It's worth your money though 😊

Went on a Wed evening. Place had only 6 other customers. Had the arabiatta and mushrooms from the set menu.Pleasant enough staff. Speedy service when they were paying attention. Had to ask for water twice, once by getting up myself. Large selection of Pizza and Pasta dishes on a busy corner spot in HIghbury. 80`s pop classics were playing.

We stopped by on a busy night before seeing something at Union Chapel and a lot of the other places around were crammed. It's the kind of place where I wouldn't recommend it necessarily, but I wouldn't stop someone from going. For the area the price is okay. And if you have somewhere to be the service is quick.

You cannot go wrong with either the single or two courses for less than £9! I tend to go for a single course due to large portions! We had two courses today. Whitebait was excellent, pepperoni pizza was a little soggy for my liking but nevertheless very tasty.

La Pasta serves good pasta and excellent pizzas. They make their own tiramisu, which is the best I've ever tasted. The staff can appear a little brusque, but soon warm to their customers.
