Where to Eat: Fresh Pasta in London

2 September 2019 | Billie Manning

Spotlight On: Berto

Millenials were perhaps the first generation that enjoyed pasta as an everyday meal as children, and with those children now grown up – some into foodies with the inclination to open restaurants – we are seeing a boom in the number of Italian restaurants, particularly those with a fresh pasta focus. Berto is one of those new restaurants. From the owners of Zia Lucia, and sitting pretty just next door, Berto will be the pasta to Lucia's pizza.
 
And the menu is looking mouth-watering: from simple cacio e pepe to extravagant buffalo ricotta-filled ravioli with sage or tagliatelle with white rabbit ragu. Expect delicious non-pasta starters of fresh cheese, cured meats and yummy Italian 'fritti' - basically, a bunch of fried stuff. For the vegans, there are grilled radicchio and asparagus dishes to start, and there's even a vegan fresh pasta dough you can order to ensure your meal is entirely plant-based. To drink, you can pick from something Italian, or a little closer to home, like Islington's N7 Pale Ale.
 
It'll be affordable too, with all pastas between £8 and £13. If you want it even cheaper, get down to Berto now to enjoy the discounts during the soft launch until 6 September!
