A neighbourhood favourite. A flavoursome, charming casual Italian in Islington.

Trullo restaurant opened its doors in June 2010 to rave reviews, founded by Tim Siadatan and Jordan Frieda (of The River Café). This two-floored contemporary trattoria serves a simple Italian inspired menu and is a culmination of the pair’s experience having worked in some of London’s most loved restaurants.

Named after the daft conical houses in Apulia, the dishes change daily as a result of the restaurant's seasonal focus. The fresh hand-made pasta and the charcoal grill are the counterpoints of the menu with the pasta being rolled minutes before service, and the fish and meat cooked over burning coals. The all-Italian wine list has a decent selection by the glass or carafe, and features personable tasting notes with hand-drawn maps. 

Ideal For

Great Italian food, expertly cooked and served by friendly waiting staff.

Favourite Table

Table 101 in the downstairs dining room is the central alcove that can seat up to five people comfortably and is the most romantic table in the restaurant.

Signature Dishes

The pappardelle with Beef shin ragu cannot be missed.
