Italian
Casa Tua is the Italian Gastro Bar , "a hidden gem" where people will feel at home! Friendly environment, real Italian food and tasty Italian products are all part of our table.
You know what Italians are like. We really are passionate about homemade food like mamma used to make, good wine, great coffees and a top-notch menu deliciously and lovingly prepared by our talented Chefs, using the best ingredients from Italy. Artisanal, Passionate, Fresh, Quality, Homely are all words that form the basis of our ethos. Hand-turned pasta and splendid wines are a must, as well as the finest ingredients for everything that is created by our team. It's all hand picked by our friendly team, who makes a mean Aperol Spritz as well and much more.

First of all our reserved table was given away although I’d phoned and said we’d be later and was told that was fine not to worry. The ‘table’ we were eventually given was two bar stools with a tiny cocktail table not big enough for food as well as drinks. It’s also not exactly comfortable for two women in their 60s perching on high stools. When we complained we had to wait a while for a proper table to be free. Menu is short but very expensive and the food was so so. Chicken Milanese was tough arancini stodgy. With the house wine and only four small plates the total bill was over £80 with service included. The place looks great and I really wanted to find a cosy neighbourhood dining experience in this area but this is not it and I won’t be back.

Delightful local Italian. Good choice menu including the special of the night, all explained well by the knowledgeable staff. I was amazed at how busy it was early on an autumn Tuesday night but as we needed to eat fairly swiftly as attending a show at The Place, the staff still made that happen.
Certainly a great buzzy atmosphere too. I will hopefully return.

Group of 12 people for a business meal. Worked really well as sharing plates so everybody ate at the same time. Food was excellent and the bill was very reasonable. Very popular location, I will be back very soon. Highly recommended.

Lovely find somewhat off the beaten track. Quality ingredients, simple dishes, great/attentive service. Had fabulous burrata starter, delicious pastas (slow cooked bolognese and real carbonara) and tasty pistachio gnocchi with chocolate and ice cream. Some may want more menu choices and/or flasher decor, but this is a little gem.

6 of us. Pasta a little too al dente for our liking - kitchen did change when requested.
Flavours could be bolder.
Portions small.
Service friendly but slow and disorganised.

Overall, a little disappointing as it was to celebrate a birthday as well.

This is the most amazing Italian food I have ever tasted in London. We were a large group of 10 and we ate at least one of everything on the menu. EVERYTHING is delicious!

Their food and service were great.
However, they had reserved a table near the staircase and there was a table with too many people to seat around such that when people walked to the staircase for toilet, they hit my table frequently which made me feel uncomfortable.

Excellent food and service. Service was quick and the menu was excellent. Had brunch and the location was ideal if catching a train at Kings Cross. In a nice leafy suburb off the main road and has a nice feel to the place. Will visit again

I would have given it five but the home made dessert let them down (chocolate cake that was just too dry). Starters were excellent - the Casa Tua special with the beetroot, goats cheese and hazelnuts was unique. The homemade ink quick seafood pasta also Portion sizes were just right so you didn't feel like you couldn't reach the third course. It was lively and ambient and tucked away from the usual hectic-ness of King's X. And they still seated us at our four person table when our party of three became a party of two. I'd definitely recommend it again.

Ottimo il cibo, forse sarebbe meglio avere personale bilingue che parli italiano con i clienti italiani. Il locale è grazioso ma piuttosto piccolo e poco curato

My friend liked the beetroot salad and the bolognese very much. I ordered the ink spaghetti but it was not as good as I’d expected.
Besides, a bigger container should be offered to put the umbrellas in on rainy days. Or it would take more than seconds to find one’s own umbrella and to pull it outside the vessel.

We went downstairs rather than trying to wait for a table (even though we had booked). No idea why we were alone it was fine and quiet. The waiting staff took our order quickly and also made sure we were never forgotten. Nothing special about the food but it was interesting and filling and good value.

This seems like a great neighborhood restaurant. The food is so good and obviously made to order. The wine list is great and regional Italian. We had a hard time choosing as everything looked wonderful! Would recommend to anyone.

Table booked for 20.30, but wasn’t ready until about 20.45. We were able to sit at the bar and have drinks and nibbles while waiting so it was fine. Got seated and after that service was friendly and efficient. We ordered a few starters to share (caponatina, bruschetta, arancini) which were all delicious as were the pastas for main. Dessert choice quite limited but what we had (affogato and chocolate cake) all tasty. Staff rushed us a little to get us out but I suppose as it was nearly 11pm that was understandable. Would definitely return.

I found this restaurant as we were basing ourselves around kings cross. They catered for us as a group of 12. The restaurant would have been a lot quieter without us I’m sure.
Lovely setting. Easy to find. Great value. Amazing staff/service. Food was yummy. I’d go again to try the other dishes on the menu.

Excellent food, really tasty. Don't eat here if you are in a hurry... the waiting staff, whilst friendly, are difficult to catch, as they're rushed off their feet. The quality of the food more than made up for it and I will certainly eat there again.
