    Discover some of the most exciting restaurants in the city

    If you're looking for a trattoria, you'll probably know that these London restaurants are modelled on traditional Italian places that serve good, simple food made from local ingredients. Italians have been settling in the capital since the middle ages. By the 1890s there were 900 ice cream sellers in town and the first restaurants were springing up in the parts of Clerkenwell around Rosebery Avenue and Saffron Hill that became known as Little Italy. People from southern regions continued to settle in Little Italy while those from the north established a new London base in Soho where you can find many a fine trattoria today.

    What's on the menu in a typical London trattoria?

    Trattoria dining in London is casual, even in the more famous restaurants that dot Soho and the West End. Menus can change daily – some places don't have a printed card but display options on a board outside – while in others your waiter tells you what's available. Expect delicious pasta dishes, authentic risotto made with genuine arborio rice, freshly made pizza and meat, fish or seafood. Ingredients like olives and olive oil, Parma ham and porcini mushrooms are widely used and antipasti and desserts complement main dishes.

    A trattoria in London is ideal at any time of year

    Italian trattoria restaurants in London can be enjoyed at any time of year. Look for dishes featuring boletus mushrooms from the Appennini mountains from June to August or pick hearty bolognese sauce over tubes of perfectly al dente fusilli in winter. Portions tend to be generous. From Soho to Shoreditch, menus feature favourites like Lasagne al Forno and Chicken Parmigiana and wine is often served in carafes. Whether you want a classic trattoria in Greater London for Sunday brunch or a stylish central spot for pre-theatre dinner, you're sure of finding your perfect match with Quandoo.
