With generations of experience cooking up authentic Italian cuisine, it’s no surprise that La Gioconda is the first point of call for Hornsey locals looking for their fix of hearty Italian food. While this family-run London restaurant on Hornsey High Street may be known around town for their wood-fired pizzas, you’ll also find a range of pasta and other delicious Italian dishes on their lengthy a la carte menu. Buon appetito!

Always great food and service at Gioconda. Sometimes the restaurant can lack a little atmosphere, but maybe that's because we often go earlier than the 'rush'.
Love this place - great food, reasonable prices and really welcoming.
Cosy little neighbourhood restaurant with lovely pizzas. Ordered a medium pizza which was HUGE. Dread to think what the extra large ones are like! House wine very nice and the Sardinian beer was a nice touch.
Passionate about providing North London with authentic Italian cuisine just the way it’s served up back in their home country, the folks over at La Gioconda prepare their traditional dishes with love. With stylish decor and beautifully presented specialities, this unpretentious little restaurant is a hidden gem tucked away in London’s Hornsey district on the High Street. When it comes to pizza, the chefs are old pros and on the restaurant’s long menu you’ll find an abundance of choices, all cooked in the wood-fired oven with a perfectly thin base and sprinkled with lashings of fresh toppings and mozzarella.
We recommend the la gioconda pizza with burrata, mozzarella, porcini mushrooms, Italian sausage and truffle oil when dining at this beloved Hornsey restaurant. La Gioconda also offers up homemade pastas and fresh antipasti if you’re not in the mood for pizza. Finish off your meal with tiramisu or torta cioccolato e pere, a shortcrust pastry filled with chocolate cream and decorated with a half pear and chocolate curls. A popular fixture on Hornsey High Street, booking a table at this North London pizza joint is highly recommended!
