My husband and I went for a quick dinner last night: the staff was really welcoming and attentive. We both had pizza and it was really tasty, both the dough and the toppings. Tiramisu was also very good. Traditional and honest food with friendly service. We will probably stop by again if we are in the area

We have been for a quick lunch and took the lunch menu (12 pounds for two courses). It was very good (I recommend the carbonara). The staff was very friendly.

I went in for a quick bite, but the atmosphere and the food was so great that I ate a full meal. The people visiting seemed in many ways to be regulars and the service behaved like it was a family business. Definately worth a revisit!

Such a nice place! Me and my friend visited here for dinner in the summer. Waiters were so friendly and chatty. Not one of those typical chain restaurants. Great food!

This was an impromptu visit and we were not disappointed! Staff were fantastic and very friendly. The spaghetti bolognese was delicious and the food seemed very authentic. Would 100% recommend.

Been there for a dinner with friends on a Sunday night. It was great to have a menu offer for 14£ that include a pizza and a starter. The thing is drinks are very expensive, especially the alcoholic ones. Service charge as well very pricey. Although good atmosphere, very old Italian style. Pizza was very good. Lots of choices for... More

The minestrone soup was full of vegetables but seemed to lack the flavour I was expecting. The pizza was very good, nothing to complain about.

I do not understand the over-enthusiastic reviews... to the point that I doubt they are genuine. Two of my friends and I had the set dinner there: parma ham from a packet for starter (with melon and red berries (?)). This was followed by our 3 pizzas, which were chewy, and on which the thickly diced cheese hadnt melted completely.... More

Small and friendly, Attillo's never fails to have a table at whatever time you turn up. Great staff and great Pasta. Just down the road from smith field market and Farrigdon station, go look it up, i'm sure you won't be disappointing. Very authentic Italian.

The food was beautiful (like we were sat in a restaurant Italy!), the wine was superb, service was friendly but not overbearing and it was very reasonably priced. Next time I am in the area I will definitely be coming back!

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
