Sophisticated modern Italian cuisine isn’t difficult to find in London, but La Verde at Riverside adds an extra level of pizazz to their cuisine that can’t be found at anywhere else in the city. Found in the Adriatic Building at The Mosaic on Limehouse’s Narrow Street, La Verde specialises in simple Italian dishes and international classics that are packed with bold flavour without being overcomplicated. Situated just next to the Thames, La Verde provides a lovely place to eat, drink and be merry in the heart of the city.
The Verde at Riverside's dining area is chic without being stuffy, and provides an elegant space that local foodies love to frequent. This restaurant on Narrow Street (inside the Adriatic Building) in London’s Limehouse offers delicious food, but is also known for their coffee – behind the bar, La Verde’s skilled baristas can whip up an espresso, cappuccino or plain coffee any way you like it. Plus, there’s a wine selection that puts other nearby restaurants to shame, so you’re sure to find a tasty drink, no matter whether with alcohol or without, that suits your tastes.
While La Verde in London’s Limehouse may be known as a popular spot for an Italian dinner, many fail to realise that the restaurant also offers amazing breakfasts, including pancakes, French toast, eggs benedict and much, much more. For lunch, the lamb burger is a good choice, and the vegetarian deluxe burger (topped with grilled mushrooms, mozzarella and salsa) is a hearty and healthy option perfect for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. The evening menu is more Italian-oriented and features mains like the pollo goat cheese souffle, a chicken breast stuffed with goat’s cheese and spinach then topped with cream sauce, the scallopine alla funghi, or the delicious Italian meatballs & mash served with mash potato, green beans and Napoli sauce. The pastas are homemade and delicious, so make sure to go for options like the ravioli lobster or the gnocchi genovese when visiting this Limehouse favourite.
Excellent Restaurant, tasty food, good size portions, good friendly service, very reasonably priced and complimentary drink with the bill, highly recommended would definitely go again.
Very pleasant environment, service good, food excellent. would return, catered for children, unexpected surprise for cost of meal for 6 people. parking for La Verde may be issue but rail and bus close by. +++++++++++++
Great service, great food, great place. The staff were really excellent amd the location was perfect, after eating we went for a nice walk down to canary warlf.
Waitress was really helpful and the carbonara was ace. Lamb chops were less tender though. Overall really good experience. Would come back again as many tempting menu items
This is a great independent and very reasonably priced place to eat. The food is like comforting and like you Mum made. The house wine is very good too. I wouldn't say this is a place for a date, but it's great for a group just wanting nice food and wine at a good price. The staff are very nice too. :)
Friendly and efficient service; wide choice of, and delicious, food; very reasonable prices for food and drink. Only minor negative for me would be the large portions but, now that I know, I would order less. I would definitely visit again.
Decent place, waiting time is a little long, other than that, fairly pleased. The only reason it isn't a 6 is because we weren't given menus on arrival, and once we did, the drinks menu was missing and only one waitress to severe food, drinks and take payment.
Good place, quiet and good ambiance. The staff were pleasant and the food was a relatively good deal. The location was very easy to get to, just off the main wharf area.
Nice and friendly restaurant with good quality food. A hidden gem really. Think I could have made a better choice with my order and the flies were annoying (not the restaurant's fault)
Very friendly and casual restaurant. Good prices, brilliant service and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the food and can recommend the spaghetti bolognese.
