Looking at its unmistakable olive green exterior and authentic Italian décor, it is hard to miss Spaghetti House when you are walking down the street. Perhaps this is what has kept it so busy ever since it first opened in the ‘Big Smoke’ back in 1955? We’re sure the traditional menu and good-quality food has contributed to making Spaghetti House a family favourite, too.
Whether you decide to pop in on a whim, or are looking for the perfect pre-theatre dinner, there is something for everyone on the menu. Check out the calamari and caprese salad to start you off. To follow, pick from a huge range of pizzas and pastas. Or if you’re feeling particularly hungry, why not go for both?
If pizza and pasta aren’t your thing, not to worry. Its wide selection of mains from pollo caprese to salmone al salmoriglio will fill the spot perfectly and have you ready for a night at the theatre. Don’t forget dessert, though. We believe that no meal is officially complete without ending on a sweet note. Thankfully Spaghetti House has lots to choose from in this department. Go for the classic affogato or – if you’re feeling a little on the nostalgic side – the Nutella pizza will definitely satisfy that sweet tooth, no matter what age you are.
For the Spaghetti House founders, food and family are one and the same and this is clear from the friendly, buzzy atmosphere and simple (but tasty) menu. Their motto is ‘spaghetti, but not on toast’ and these days it’s good to know that although it may not take itself too seriously, they don’t mess around when it comes to food. After nearly 70 years of being a London restaurant, we can see why this restaurant has done so well and will continue to thrive in a city that just can’t get enough of Italian cuisine.
