Took a party of 10 guests because I had been told the food was good. It was, but not worth the floodlit laboratory atmosphere and appalling ‘couldn’t give a xxxx” service. Had to ask four times for drinks as it seemed only one person could...More

We went to this restaurant with high hopes after favourable reviews. The main restaurant area looked inviting and was almost empty, but we were shown to a dark corner in a side room. Service was extraordinarily slow - perhaps because we were out of sight...More

Lovely fresh pasta made to order. Lots of gluten free options for our coeliac guest. Service was excellent -warm, friendly but professional. Thank you for a lovely meal! A few more fish / seafood options on the menu would be my only request!

London is swamped by Italian chain restaurants for pasta and pizza - and inevitably they’re an easy choice for tourists looking for somewhere safe and easy. So it was reassuring on a Friday night to see this restaurant busy with a mix of both city...More

If you do not eat eggs, you might struggle to choose a main course as (from memory) they only offer handmade pasta dishes. The pasta should therefore include eggs.

Sorry for my late response, but I don't think they will answer you via trip advisor. Better book through OpenTable App or directly on their website mattarellorestaurant.uk and under reservation I hope it helps.
