Want to know where Londoners go for get-away-from-it-all dining? Look no further than La Figa, an Italian restaurant where charming service and good food go hand-in-hand with relaxation. Hidden away from the busy streets of central London in newly fashionable Limehouse, La Figa is a bit of a hidden gem, the sort of place that everybody knows about but really does want to keep to themselves. Bright and cheerful, the interior is entirely modern with an upbeat, almost canteen-y feel to its simple furnishings and glorious pantone-esque colour scheme, which just can’t fail to make you smile. Glorious cocktails of every flavour, colour and aroma are accompanied by great Italian food here at La Figa, the menu as relaxed as the dining room, offering the best of traditional Italian food with a coastal, sunshine-infused flavour throughout. The La Figa kitchen uses typical ingredients in pizza, pasta, meat and fish dishes to evoke sun drenched holidays and bustling piazzas.

Faultless! Excellent service and the food was delicious. The portions were huge, seriously great value.
A little Sunday afternoon lunch I won't forget in a hurry and will definitely return when back in the area.

Food portions were maybe a little large and the interior could maybe do with a revamp
Otherwise the food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent

This was my first visit to La Figa and although it was a Saturday evening I had not expected it to be so busy given the current restrictions on distancing etc. The food and service were great but it was very noisy and a large group of quite drunk people were blocking the route to the loos with no distancing whatsoever. A bit disappointing in that respect.

After two visits to the place I can say this is a decent Italian place but by no means high quality. It's just not.
The simplest appetiser - prosciutto with melon - took 1/2 an hour to arrive.
The sauces were fine, but just that.
We skipped dessert.
We were sat next to a raucous group which made so much noise that he had to ask the waitress to do something about it. She responded with "they are almost done". The sound level remained way to high for the next half an hour.
In short - come if you are hungry but if you crave high standard Italian - this isn't the place to go.

Service was poor
trying to constantly get waiters attention for napkins as there was no linen to use,
sticky table
and empty bottles and glass where left through out our 3 corse along with our used napkins,
very uncomfortable to eat Can’t fault the food over priced for what we had gone down hill won’t be returning again

First visit for a while. Not as busy as expected but still lively. Good service in quickly taking drinks order. Food order was mixed up (I received penne arrabiata instead of amatraciana), but it was still very tasty so no great problem (but would have been if other way round for a vegetarian diner).

The food was very good - which was a pleasant surprise given the terrible service. I cannot over emphasize how awful our experience was. We were ignored for about 25 minutes after being seated. They weren’t busy at all so there was no reason for the delay. When the server did come by the table he seemed completely put out and annoyed. He didn’t make eye contact and when he did speak he was condescending. Had it not been as late as it was (~1730) we would have walked out.

Our first visit to a lovely find......cleverly tucked away in a quiet square in Limehouse.

The food was not disappointing and was beautifully presented. We had ample time between courses and never felt any need to rush our meal.

The whole restaurant was a mixed hive of people out to enjoy themselves and yes, children are more than welcome.

And why not?

This restaurant just epitomizes how families can enjoy quality time together.

The staff compliment the food as they are engaging, colorful and attentive.

And price?

You pay for what you choose to order. Plus the range is wide and certainly great value for money.

Our next visit is already in the diary.

We might even see you there?

Good food in a busy restaurant only let down by the length of time it took to get the bill - we asked 4 times before going to the bar to ask again and finally being given a bill which was wrong (overcharge attempt). Pointed it out and it was rectified quickly. Were given a couple of lemoncello on the house to make up for the waiting time.

With exceptionally warm and friendly but not fussy service and incredibly delicious food, we were four very happy, very full people at the end. The mussels starter is DIVINE!!!!! Highly recommended.

Good experience. Food was very good.
Unfortunately my party felt a bit uneasy when they say many packs of pre-packed pasta on the counter at the kitchen.
