At La Tana, you can find a slice of Italian life in northwest London, moments from Ruislip Manor tube station. La Tana opens its Victoria Road premises for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, and for lunch Tuesday through Friday. The highlight of the week has to be the traditional Italian Sunday lunch, perfect for a day of indulgence with friends and family. This cosy, family-friendly cafe and restaurant offers nothing but down-home Italian hospitality.
La Tana’s lunchtime menu is ideal for a quick bite close to Ruislip Manor station. Watch out for the special offers that this Italian trattoria tucked away in northwest London, but the regular a la carte lunch menu is always a pleasure to behold. Italian sandwiches are a popular option, with classics such as the crudo (Parma ham and mozzarella cheese) and the house special La Tana, with which you can choose four ingredients deli-style. Italian pasta and salads round out a very satisfying noontide offering down Victoria Road.
As you would expect from an Italian restaurant that purports to do things the authentic Italian way, La Tana uses only the freshest ingredients, and cooks dishes to order. Diners at this Ruislip Manor eatery are encouraged, therefore, to enjoy an apertivo while they wait for their meal – an Aperol spritz, perhaps, Martini bianco, or a Tintoretto. When it is time to eat, La Tana’s a la carte menu is classically structured, with antipasti, primi piatti, secondi, contorni, and dolci making for some of the best homestyle Italian in northwest London. Book a table at this Victoria Road Italian now, and don’t forget to enquire about their renowned Italian Sunday lunch.
