Padella

Pasta in Shoreditch

Padella offers amazing pasta in Shoreditch and London Bridge and is pretty busy as a result. Luckily, you can use the Walk In app to remotely queue if you are within a certain distance.

The Shoreditch branch is much bigger than the London Bridge venue with an open kitchen and bar area. It’s a relaxed, informal restaurant serving delicious and affordable pasta.

The Menu

There is a small selection of antipasti including Padella sourdough and burrata with olive oil. However, we jumped right into the pasta section! When we visited, there were 8 choices but they swap pastas in and out on a regular basis.

We opted for the following four pasta dishes:

  • Gnocchi with nutmeg butter (£4)
  • Pici Cacio & Pepe (a standard Padella dish) (£6.5)
  • Fettuccine with Cobble Lane Cured nduja, mascarpone & lemon
  • Ravioli of Westcombe rictotta with butter & sage (£8.5)

The gnoochi was an absolute steal at £4 and was deliciously al dente in the nutmeg butter. The cacio & pepe was equally great with thick al dente pasta and a moreish cheese and pepper sauce. I would have liked the portion to be a little larger but the pasta was filling as it was thicker.

The raviolo was another winning dish, made with fresh ricotta and a mouthwatering butter & sage sauce. Whilst I love the nduja flavour in the fettuccine, the pasta was too soft for me.
