Latest critic review: June 26, 2016
Critics' score: 7.5 out of 10

Trullo is an enormously successful Islington Italian restaurant - and now they've headed south of the river for their next, the pasta bar Padella. Expect a range of Trullo classics, cocktails, Prosecco and more. All at very good value and a perfect place to pop into if you need a respite from the Market.

"The tagliatelle with smoked eel and Amalfi lemon was just meltingly divine — everything you could want from an eel and a lemon, which happen to be two of my favourite ingredients." READ REVIEW

"“Unremarkable but excellent” would also be the verdict on Padella, I guess. I had worried I wasn’t going to get anything I couldn’t make as well at home, and I was dead wrong about that." READ REVIEW

"I’ll be back, though, because even in food-stuffed Borough, Padella stands out. You’ll find me in a corner with an expression of glazed lust, hoovering up worms of pici like a deranged cuckoo." READ REVIEW

"You get the gist by now — we loved Padella, although we think some may find the portion size stingy. On the one hand, it’s nice to avoid a 2pm carb-coma, on the other it might not be enough to satisfy at dinnertime, when most would want two dishes per person, pushing up the cost." READ REVIEW

"In each case, the freshly made pasta is star, with just enough bite to satisfy and flavour to add interest, while leaving the rest up to the sauces." READ REVIEW

"Padella is a fine little find for proper but casual sustenance, bang in the heart of tourist London. It’s a formula that should be everywhere, but is actually rarer than hen’s teeth. " READ REVIEW

"Starters and puds are simple but satisfying: think creamy burrata or beef carpaccio, both drizzled with fruity, peppery olive oil; or sweet crumbly tarts (the chocolate is especially good). But really, Padella is a place to eat pasta." READ REVIEW
