King's Cross pasta restaurants are topped off by Spagnoletti, the industrial chic 'pasta lab' that's delving out a load of freshly made favourites. Think agnolotti, strozzapreti with baby octopus and more, served alongside everything from tuna steaks to signature tiramisu at dessert.


From fresh pasta made in house every day to mouthwatering toppings including wild boar ragu and chargrilled octopus, Maremma is an elite pasta restaurant in Brixton (just shy of Brockwell Park), that celebrates authenticity through and through. Settle for nothing less than their sumptuous eats and Tuscan wines in beautiful interiors, including a wine cellar below available for private hire.

Bocconcino Mayfair

Mayfair is the moment for this West London pasta restaurant on Berkeley Street that takes it inspiration from the 'beautiful chimes of Italy'. Bringing you seasonal pasta that celebrates fresh and true Italian flavour, dine on ragu ravilo and homemade tagliolini in what we can only describe as quite the deluxe setting. And if pasta doesn't cut it? Try the bottomless pizza brunch on the weekend, at just £55 per guest.


The delicious aroma of freshly cooked pasta wafting out of Bancone is a surefire way to lure you in. Split into three sections, their menu is overflowing with the tastiest antipasti, pasta and dessert in town. Give their spaghetti alla chitarra a taste; you won't regret it.

Officina 00

An Old Street pasta restaurant notorious for deep fried lasagne (erm, yep), Officina 00 are proud to make their pasta on site, showing their Shoreditch guests all the work that goes in to a truly humble meal. And when you're not eyeing up that deep fried beauty? Lush over their almond pesta, sourdough and cocktail menu, perfect for Italian lovers.

Padella Shoreditch

Flying the flag for best pasta in Shoreditch, Padella needs no introduction. Along with its London Bridge sister, the acclaimed spot operates a no-reservation policy, which is why you'll spot queues for their tasty plates. We're talking cacio e pepe for £12, pairing perfectly with their £8 negroni. 


When it comes to pasta restaurants in Soho, we only have eyes for Pastaio. From famed chef Stevie Parle, the West End favourite combines freshly made pasta with mouthwatering starters, desserts and frozen slushy cocktails, all prepared with authentic ingredients and a truly loving touch. Popular? It's that too.
