Italian | Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

Pastaio is Italian for someone who makes pasta by hand - something you'll see plenty of in this venture by Stevie Parle (Dock Kitchen, Rotorino, Palatino, Craft) in Soho. Fast, casual and good value - particularly for this area - the pasta is super and the Prosecco slushies a must.

"...for a simple, satisfying plate of pasta in a congenial environment just yards from Europe’s busiest shopping street (and priced at 75p less than the mac’n’cheese at the chain pub around the corner), I reckon it’s pretty near perfect." READ REVIEW

"I liked the tagliatelle, though: slippery slurpy ribbons, nestling with sweet and squishy wild mushrooms. I also enjoyed the crab, courgette and tomato fusilli: bright, colourful and juicy." READ REVIEW

"Sage-topped parcels stuffed with pork, rabbit and grouse were dense and meaty without being gamey. They also had lashings of butter and parmesan. Big tick." READ REVIEW

"Good food. Lively surrounds. Slap bang in the middle of town. Pastaio more than does the Italian job." READ REVIEW
