London is packed with great Italian restaurants, and out in Homerton, there is a place that is up there with the best. Venerdi is a home-style eatery on Chatsworth Road that prides itself on its friendly atmosphere, an extensive wine list and an Italian menu packed with favourites. Their pizza list is extensive, and their ravioli and cannelloni is homemade, so you can be sure of an authentic Italian eating experience.
The location on Venerdi could not be better. Found on the corner of Chatsworth Road and Clifton Road, the restaurant has ample space for al fresco dining if the weather is good, and Homerton tube station is just a short walk away. Those travelling out to East London are often spoilt for choice when dining out, and Venerdi is as good an option as any in the area, particularly for those who want to enjoy down-home, traditional Italian cuisine in friendly confines. When planning to indulge in an incredible Italian meal at this fantastic establishment, make sure to reserve ahead.
Perfect night out! Staff are accommodating, professional and caring. The new restaurant's interior is beautiful down to the last detail, good selection of wine and cocktails with mouthwatering food to go with it. Highly recommend!
Great food and atmosphere. Highly recommended. The redocartion is great. Eating outside is a must if it's sunny. Come and see for yourself. Enjoy iy
Amazing food. Bit of a weird moody waitress but that didn't matter. The calamari, king prawns and rib eye steaks were all divine. Also DJ made it a really fun vibe
Great service great food great atmosphere I can't wait for my next visit. I had an amazing risotto and dessert. Next time I will get a seat away from the front door.
I have eaten at this restaurant several times and had a good experience, so invited my family who had to travel from all over for a birthday lunch yesterday. The service was very poor and I spent most of the lunch feeling uneasy & anxious trying to catch the waiter's attention for the items they had forgotten to bring. The prosecco was warm so I sent that back, I then reopened another drink but it didn't arrive so I had to leave the table to retrieve it. When the waiter eventually took our order, items were missing, we usually are offered pepper & parmesan, but had to ask. I then ordered a glass of wine to drink with the meal, which never arrived. Very disappointing for a what should have been a special occasion which we had travelled a long way for.
I enjoyed my time, however it was very awkward upon arrival when the table wasn't ready for us yet. We had to wait for a couple with two small children to leave so they could draw the tables together. I felt bad for the couple and slightly rude. I think the whole situation could have been glossed over if the staff had apologised to myself and the couple, and explained the situation. I feel as though it came across as we were forcing them out of their seats. In spite of that I still enjoyed my time at the restaurant.
Following a new refurb and refined menu, the aesthetics were great... The restaurant LOOKS lovely, as does the menu; but 70% of what we asked for, they didn't have... right down to vanilla ice-cream! One of our party literally had an alternative dish for starter, main and dessert and as an apology for 'waiting so long for food' we were given an extra dessert, which was one we didn't want in the first place! The tricolor pasta was hilarious. You could literally tell which one was cooked first as it ranged from luke warm to steaming hot. The 4 cheese pizza was also essentially a mildly warm slice of cheese(s) on toast. Such a shame as we came here at least once a month; but not for £124 for hardly anything we wanted that then happened to be served 'just warm'. Great bartender and wait staff... shame about lack of food alongside inflated prices. Best not to open before you're ready... Sorry. After two years, we won't be coming back.
Beautiful dining room with delightful lighting and music. Great food! Best Italian food in London with delicious wines to go with it. We went there to dinner (family of 4) on 1st March and had a fantastic time. The restaurant was full so recommend booking in advance as we did.
Restaurant very busy. Had to wait nearly 30 minutes despite booking. Waitress very quick and quite attentive. My salad had no dressing and the pasta cingale was a very small portion. Wine was good. My coffee was cold but quickly replaced.Shared pud was a chocolate fondant with ice cream. Very ordinary. Overall was expensive( £57 ) for salad and pasta and a little disappointing, though refurb looks good and they are clearly struggling with the number of customers. Would give it another go.
A lovely place with welcoming and friendly staff. Nice environment and quick service. There wasnt a great selection on the drinks menu but the food was lovely- we will definitily be going back!!
Very friendly efficient staff, food excellent. Will go there again and take friends and family with me. I like the new decor and seating plan , more room to manoeuvre round tables.
Lovely great tasting food and very friendly, attentive staff. Well balanced music playing at all times and the atmosphere was fantastic too. Our desserts seemed to take forever however!
The food was absolutley amazing, the restaurant is very nice and cozy and the staff is very nice and friendly. I can wait for my next visit to Venerdi, I really recomend this restaurant.
This is a very family friendly restaurant with very delicious and elegant dishes The Fiat on the wall gives the room a true atmosphere of "Traditional Italy "
Excellent meal and great music we had a great everning fantastic table very very very very good service would go back again would advice anyone to go
Still one of the best Italians around. We drive over there from Islington and it's always worth the travel. Updated decor but still the same great food
What a lovely place! Service & food were superb. Tiramissu was to die for. Definitely I will be back and recommend to friends. Grazie Mille. Elaine
Lively atmosphere and friendly staff, though the service can be a bit slow. There is a wide range of pizzas and pasta and a smaller range of "mains". Booking is advisable!
We went this friday night. Fantastic food and atmosphere! And the new refurb looks great. We would highly recommend. Looking forward to going back soon.
Food was great, and the staff were very attentive. I will definitely be coming back gain to try other bits on the menu with a few more people
The food was great (aside from the calamari which was waaay too chewy), we did find the service a little unfriendly and slow at times but it was a very busy Monday evening.
This is a lovely local restaurant - good service, and good pizza! Recently refurbished so looking smarter albeit a bit less homely than it used to
Nice food,good choice of wine. Really nice staff and service. Would recommend for a relaxed evening meal. Great location, near to public transport. Would go again
Food and atmosphere were good. Waiter looked like he wished he was somewhere else. Good cocktails 2 for 1 between 5-7pm. Its my local so I will go back
Small portions, expensive prices,there was an"event on"which we where unaware of which included two DJ's playing very loud music so we had to shout to be heard. Don't recommend.
Food was fine, but quite standard, waited 1 hour to be served (including drinks), service was quite abrupt and a 12.5% service charge was applied automatically..
Too busy had to wait 20 mi items for table and almost 1 hour for food , one main course cold and had to be sent back . Why can't restaurants get the basics right ??
