This Sardinian restaurant opened several years ago in my neighbourhood. Packed most nights and everyone delighted to have a family run place instead of a chain or franchise. However, things have changed. We had incredibly overpriced starters which were not very impressive and quite mediocre food. The price was high and we are used to Islington prices but this was...

Searched for a brick oven pizza restaurant near Edgware and came across 500 degrees, a short walk away. A nice selection of hand made, wood fired pizzas on the menu and a simple set of wine by the glass options. There were also several starters of the day, but we opted for wine and pizza. We ordered 3: Diavola, Buffala,... More

We took the whole restaurant for a party on a Saturday night. Our experience, and the feedback from all our guests, was nothing short of adulatory. Giorgio, Mario and all their colleagues, could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The food is always excellent at 500 and to deliver that level of quality to a party of over 30... More

Every visit to 500 is a pleasure. Their pasta is perfect, dishes are always interesting and tasty, deciding what to order is always a battle as everything looks (and turns out) good. Service is always relaxed and attentive. I can't fault 500, good for meeting up friends, an impromptu dinner or a romantic meal.

Eight of us had a pleasant evening here though somehow the bill came to £80 each. Must have been the wine which is a tad over priced for Archway but other than that I would recommend.

We took over the restaurant for a family celebration and were treated to some wonderfully tasty food. My partner really enjoyed his lamb dish and I loved the sea bass I chose. The starter platter had a great selection of anti-pasti, meats and olives. The staff were friendly and relaxed which really helped us enjoy our evening.

Had lunch on a Sunday afternoon a couple weeks ago and loved it. We came fairly early (12:30) and were the only customers, but we still go very good service from two very nice waiters. One was new and was still working on his English but he was charming none the less and asked his colleague to step in when... More

They chicked us out (3 people) in a very rude way! I just checked and they refused me twice when I arrived... More

I have been to 500 a few times now and have been very impressed each time. The food is lovely and interesting and the staff are efficient and charming. The restaurant is a great asset to an area (Archway) which has lots of eating places but not many worthy of note. And any restaurant that serves rabbit - what can... More

you can't fault anything in this place. from the moment you step in you are greeted by amazing staff. anything you order from the menu is delicious and it keeps changing to ensure seasonal ingredients are always used. the wine list is spot on and their selection of grappa excellent. I would recommend their tagliatelle with ragu or fresh truffle... More
