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.

More about 500 Italian Restaurant, London

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.

Attentive serving; delicious food & great to be able to have half size (& price) starter & sweet - for those with smaller appetites! Would love it if there were more white meat @ vegetarian options.

We have been there many times. The food is always good, fresh and tasty. The home made bread is a must. Not forgetting the service which is always with a smile.

Friendly staff. Excellent food. The mixed tagliere board gives a taste of all the starters. The rack of lamb was superb. Wine list is reasonably priced.
