Latteria

OPENED 91 DAYS AGO

The team behind Il Baretto launch a second Italian restaurant in Islington: Latteria.

Bringing Milan-style dining to London, Latteria offers Italian comfort food in a stylish setting.

Latteria - breakfast

The Spot:

Latteria combines a 1950s décor with modern elements, featuring glossy red surfaces and white tiles as well as exposed brick and a woven floor of peach, white and green terrazzo tiles. An open kitchen and deli counter takes centre stage on the ground floor, fuelling the space with energy from chefs cooking up an Italian feast, which contrasts the quiet and calm dining room downstairs.

The Food:

Chef Paolo Parlanti, whose experience includes upscale restaurants The Art’s Club and Franco’s in St. James’s, is in charge of the menu. Dishes are diverse, ranging from paninis and custard-filled croissants by day, to pinsa-style pizzas (made with more water for a crispier crust) and salads by night. Of course, Latteria serves pasta too – expect all the classics like tagliatelle al ragu, Devon crab spaghetti and cacio e pepe – and tiramisu for dessert.

Latteria - coffee and croissant

The Drinks:

Latteria delivers more comfort in forms of hot chocolate (decked with whipped cream), as well as refreshing pick-me-ups such as Sicilian-inspired blood orange juice, Aperol Spritz and peach Bellini’s for brunch.

The Damage:

Breakfast is priced at around £7-£9.5; dinner plates range from £4 to £13.5; and cocktails cost no more than £8.5.

Latteria - eggs florentine

In a Nutshell:

With a counter offering day-time delights to go and a menu thrumming with comforting classics, Latteria feels a lot more casual than its sister in Marylebone.
