Probably Islington's most famous 9and hard to get into) restaurant, this Italian affair sees Jordan Frieda, formerly front-of-house at The River Cafe teaming up with chef Tim Siadatan - one of the original trainees at Fifteen. Expect superlative Italian cuisine. And if you're having trouble getting into Padella, from the same team, then booking a table here will help you avoid that queue.
