We also make gluten-free pasta every day with a rolling pin and are certified with coeliac uk. In the heart of London, the City, Mattarello Bolognese will bring you the ultimate Italian cuisine experience.

We brought the Bologna's traditional cusine to Aldgate, with our signature fresh hand-made pasta.

We have installed a gluten-free kitchen to offer you the safety and taste you need, and import certified quality gluten free products as flours, pasta and hams directly from Italy.

Every day you can watch our "Sfoglino" making fresh pasta in front of you at our premises and soon you will have also the chance to learn all the secrets of fresh-pasta production from him with our exclusive courses that will start this year.

    I have never left a bad review before. We came to London to celebrate my daughter's Birthday and found this place was closed with a note on the door saying they are on holiday. Everything else in the area was booked up so it was a frantic ruined evening. Hospitality in general is having such a hard time - you don't deserve anyone's business or stay in business if you treat people like this.

    La Stella data non rispecchia nulla, in quanto dopo aver prenotato e ricevuta la mail di conferma, recatomi sul posto, il ristorante era CHIUSO PER FERIE. Pazzesco ! Se la piattaforma la volete usare, aggiornate le vostre informazioni, pensando a chi la utilizza, e conseguentemente organizza la serata. Delusione e disappunto !

    They were not open , even though i booked through open table, very disappointing, i had to look for another restaurant and had to wait for over one hour in a que to get lunch. Very poor service from the restaurant, the chef was there but no other staff were there, the manager had not arrived and the restaurant looked as it was closed . He could not serve lunch without any other staff. I arrived at 1.15 pm

    Good for gluten free but noisy music, waiters seemed to be in a rush to remove plates or not around and the food was only fair given the hoopla surrounding the pasta. Desserts very good.

    The entire meal I had at sfoglia bologna was substandard. As a coeliac the Coeliac UK accreditation was what attracted me. My sister and I shared a gluten free bread basket - the bread consisted of flat, bitter and pastry-like dough, really unpleasant. The Vinegar we used to try to improve the taste had dead flies in it. We both ordered pasta, both meals were cold and the pasta was raw, and neither were flavoured well. In hindsight we wished we had sent the food back. We complained to the staff and got the price reduced but should have refused to pay. Neither the chef nor manager were interested in getting further feedback from us. Their reaction was blasé and quite odd. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, coeliac or otherwise - the food was appalling, worst meal I have eaten out in England

    Food was genuinely really amazing - would highly recommend if you can avoid the below - wouldn't switch the aircon on upstairs and it was absolutely roasting ( would recommend only getting downstairs tables), to the point we were sweating - requested a few starters to share, were given an insane number despite saying that's enough multiple times - we were given a discount which worked out to 1 starter (out of circa 17 we were served) - ordered a dessert which came out still frozen solid - waitress was super sweet but the acknowledgement from management was seriously lacking

    A coeliac’s dream - all the desserts were gluten free and delicious! Very good menu too. The lobster was very chewy though - the food would of been perfect if not for that. The restaurant had the same 3 songs on repeat, very loudly, for the entire visit which was a bit much after a while. The toilets needed a clean, too. Restaurant was lovely and the server was so friendly and helpful.

    Very limited menu, not what is advertised on the Internet. The food wasn't particularly tasty even though the price was top dollar. There was an eclectic mix of ok to bad music piped through speakers to try and add ambiance to a half empty restaurant on a Saturday night. The waitress lacked experience and service was very slow, although we were automatically charged 12.5 % service cover charge. A very disappointing meal and evening in all which was expensive and we left still hungry after 3 courses.

    The service was very quick so felt we was in and out. The food didn’t look very presentable especially the lasagne, you couldn’t see the layers, it was so flat and had a very strange texture. Waitress didn’t ask how our food was. The only nice thing was the ambience.

    When we arrived the staff were really lovely, helped us to a table and guided us through the menus. We ordered a starter, which when arrived was wrong, we told the staff and waited a while. They brought over our mains and we had to point out we hadn’t even had our starters yet, so they asked if we could have them with our mains. Food was delicious, portions were very small and quite empty.

    It's an authentic Italian restaurant, a more special experience than the familiar chains. The food was delicious, quite simple but using fine ingredients and well prepared. Dining early evening on a Saturday the ambience was just right for our party of seven; the restaurant was not too busy. Service was friendly and quite attentive, but there were some misunderstandings about our orders (a language problem), and an error at the till nearly caused us to be overcharged. All was corrected however, and this did not detract from a very pleasant overall experience. The restaurant is slightly out of the way, but well worth finding.

    This restaurant was absolutely fantastic. The staff were so welcoming and provided great service. The food was amazing and we walked away very happy. We had bread and olives to start and the bread was so fresh, probably the most delicious bread I have ever had. We had pasta dishes for our main course and again it was so fresh. Would go here again!

    Had a reservation for this restaurant on Sunday at 21:00 We were running few minutes late, so paid a Uber to be on time.. When we called the restaurant the said they were close already. Shocking, I made a reservation hours ago for the that specific time time they did not advise me straight away. Very poor customer service

    We had caponatina, puffy bread, and roasted potatoes for our appetizers/sides. All three of us in our dining party had a different favourite. But we all loved all the mains. Mine was the Tagliatelle ai Funghi, which was heavenly, but I'm also a big fan of the Tortellone di Zucca. Exquisite pasta.

    Best arrabiata I ever ate!!! The restaurant is top quality and their hand made pasta is delicious. I also had the chocolate souffle after and it was just perfect. The staff are very friendly and they asked me how everything was and offered a shot of limoncello. I will definitely be visiting again soon.
