Had a lovely meal at Yauatcha with my boyfriend. I had the Thai Style chicken with rice and he had the Beef in black bean sauce with rice and we shared the prawn toast which was really nice. The meal came to just over £80 between us so not exactly cheap but the food was lovely and the service was very good More

Great steaks. Great service and atmosphere. English steak was pretty much as good as the USDA steak. Personally wouldn't pay the extra for the USDA. Would get a bigger English instead. More

British | London Bridge, South East London

The service was very attentive, efficient and friendly. The food was outstanding, I had the pork belly which was one of the best meals I've ever had. The atmosphere was just right, a little background music but quiet enough to talk without having to raise your voice and light enough to see without being too bright. More

I haven't stopped talking about Pidgin since eating there! It was really such a remarkable meal. The dishes were creative but felt regional, and the service was friendly but not obtrusive. We were able to sit back and just indulge! More

Marco and Iacopo Rossi, founders of Podere di Pomaio, a natural winery in Tuscany, fell in love with east London the moment they walked around Brick Lane. With the enoteca (wine shop) and restaurant named after their small sustainable vineyard in the Chianti area, they celebrate the new and old flavours of Tuscany and Italy.

Their passion for natural wines and Italian cuisine was triggered by Tuscany, the region of their birth.
This is why the vino they pour into your glass comes mainly from small independent Tuscan vineyards such as Podere di Pomaio, all selected by Luca Degl'Innocenti, one of Italy's best sommelier and Enoteca Pomaio's manager
The wine list and food menu is created using Tuscan ‘lens’ and nostalgia. All the bottles and ingredients that they are proud to research are presented in small plates and big glasses. It goes without saying that they are sangiovese (a red wine grape) and prosciutto addicted!More

Radio Alice PizzeriaRadio Alice Pizzeria
Pizzeria | Shoreditch, East London

Serving up light sourdough pizzas topped with seasonal Italian ingredients, Radio Alice is a pizzeria based in London’s Hoxton Square. Founders Matteo and Salvatore Aloe first perfected their recipe in Bologna, using ancient baking techniques to create a new kind of pizza. Using mother yeast makes for a sourdough base that’s crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. While toppings, sourced from small-scale suppliers in Italy and added at just the right moment, are portioned perfectly onto each slice. Integrity in ingredients extends to the drinks menu too, with organic wines grown on sustainable farms set up on reclaimed mafia land. Pleasing diners across Italy since 2010, Radio Alice is the London incarnation of their popular pizzeria, Berbere.More

Soul food | Shoreditch, East London
