Named after tiny legendary Italian speedster Fiat 500, 500 Restaurant in Archway brings you an excellent choice of top-notch Italian dishes. Fresh ingredients, bread and pastas prepared on the premises every day are key to the singular taste of 500 Restaurant on Holloway Road. With a changing menu that’s always taking into consideration seasonal produce, head chef Mario has some special dishes that he was asked to bring back time and time again. And you have never tried proper Italian food before you’ve tasted his oven-baked rabbit in balsamic vinegar sauce.

Amazing food and excellent staff. We loved we recommend the place.
The food far surpasses the area and is very reasonable priced. The slow cooked beef shin pasta and the chocolate mousse dessert were winners! Will definitely be visiting again.
We enjoyed our meal so much we were tempted to have another at once! Only down side is that when crowded (it wasn't for this early lunchtime visit) the small venue can get uncomfortably noisy. But that's worth putting up with for the sake of the brilliant food created by their brilliant chef. We are blessed to have such a marvel in the Holloway road!
We know of at least two passions head chef Mario Magli has: one is the tiny Italian classic car Fiat 500, which gave its name to the Archway restaurant. His other passion would be the top-notch Italian cuisine that he routinely puts out with abandon. His restaurant 500 on Holloway Road is a dining place that sticks to the wonderful basics of Italian cuisine and varies them in ways almost unfathomable. Try the amazing Tagliere 500, a selection of cold starters and some cured meats. All their breads and pastas are handmade every day on the premises – it doesn’t get any fresher or more authentic than this.
500 Restaurant in Archway is trusted by a huge fan base of knowledgeable foodies and people that just wish to spend an excellent night out alike. As winners of Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence they know what it means to create an ambiance that manages to cater to both gourmets and diners looking for a small romantic place. Go for their tasty gnocchi with Italian sausage ragu and ravioli. And don’t forget about Mario’s Tiramisu, which he’s quite proud of, and rightfully so.
