great food and nice staff
Great food and service.
Lovely service and atmosphere, but the food was very salty and the portion size was disappointing for £15.
Lovely restaurant with great service and tasty food!
Love this place - always amazing food and great service
Slightly underwhelmed by the quality of the food [specifically the vegetarian lasagna]. Service was however impeccable. Additional outside heaters would be greatly appreciated.
Birthday lunch ... very good service. The pasta menu was slightly reduced could be due to post lockdown. Food was very nice I just wish they had a vegetarian ravioli dish.
Friendly and delicious local Italian restaurant in Islington. Highly recommend
Great to be back albeit a bit chilly outside on the Terrace but happy to be there. Roll on 17th May
Sent pizza back as was so soggy in the middle! Pasta dishes lacked taste. Service great- lovely staff! V uncomfortable chairs outside. Delicious pistachio ice cream!
Super lovely service and fantastic portion sizes for the appetisers! Really lovely venue, food, and staff :)
Lovely afternoon having lunch at Radici. Tables are on the street outside the front of the restaurant but its a side street so traffic is relatively low and atmosphere is lovely
Great service, very friendly and really good food!
The food was really good, but our outside table was the only with no heating close. It would have been nice to have at least candles or something to keep us warm in a really cold night.
Their lamb with polenta and cavolo nero is worth a weekly visit!
The service here is really professional and fantastic. Came here for a last hurrah before lockdown 2.0; they were incredibly busy and there were only 2 or 3 servers for the entire room, but we were warmly and promptly taken care of. That and the great food and cosy atmosphere made for a really enjoyable last supper.
Unfortunately, the seafood risotto my partner ordered was undercooked, so we have to send it back.
Pizza was instead really good!
The waitress assisted us really quickly.
Excellent food, wine and ambiance!
Always a favorite for Italian in the city, and I'm loving the current Calabrian special menu. Always get the burrata to start and the fried zucchini on the side!
Excellent. A warm welcome
In difficult times !
Great food and wine .
Radici has a great set menu if you're on a budget, but also amazing pizzas. We love it here.
Definitely my favourite local restaurant.
Fabulous, fresh food in a friendly, relaxed environment.
Every dish was wonderful - and very generous portion sizes.
We got a large collection of starters, plus a pizza to share, a main each and 2 desserts! (Obviously we couldn’t finish it all, but we had a wonderful time trying)!
What can I say it's our go to place when we are stuck for a place to go. Always great food, service and negronis
Excellent food and service. Very good anti-covid measures with staff wearing masks, spaced out tables, glass partitions and hand sanitiser. Feels safer than most restaurants at the moment.
From starters to desserts: DIVINE ✨
Everything was great
We love Radici so glad we live nearby - it's always our go to for a great meal!
Service is on par with the D&D brand of restaurants. Generally good, and it seems they try to rectify mistakes or small issues quite quickly which is a good ethos.
A nice setting for an Italian right opposite the Almeida Theatre. The interiors is perfect for a date.
Recommend the set menus, as good value for money. Sometimes though cheaper they can be disappointing compared to the main menus, but having sampled their 3 courses for £20 ( £10 with the August gov discount) it definitely is good. Meatballs as starter very good, juicy tender meat, flavourful njuda tomatoes. The tagliolini main is clearly homemade pasta with a nice blend of cheese and creamy sauce, seasoned just right to provide a satisfying richness despite the simplicity of it, tiramisu is also creamy but light with a sweet amaretto sponge.
My date had the truffle pizza which is very gastronomic being the signature item with real shavings of truffle and porcini mushrooms. This is a real treat. Nice sour dough like pizza base. The panna cotta presentation is nice, and a nice touch.
Key areas for improvement- the pizza I think should either be pre sliced, or there be a pizza cutter provided. It was very hard cutting through the dough base with standard cutlery knives. I think the tiramisu, could be improved in presentation, I wasn’t sure if the blob effect was intentional. Nothing wrong with the dessert, but I felt the other dishes were presented much better.
Overall, I would still recommend the restaurant. I would go back for sure.
Excellent - the place, staff, food, ambience & covid 19 prcatices were all spot on. A lovely and very good value for money restaurant. Definitely be back
Wouldn't recommend for vegans, a bit overpriced for what it is.
Returning customer, love the atmosphere and location. We will be back!!
Very noisy ambiance. Starters were good. Mains were disappointing. Wine was expensive. Service was very friendly but also with some problems like the food arriving to our table before the wine. Can't really recommend this restaurant. We spent £55 each for a very mediocre meal with a bottle regular wine.
Outstanding - thoughtful and great quality Italian. Get out and support them
Delicious food and accommodating - they went above and beyond to be Covid-compliant!
Love this Radici - not because it's local but they do have amazing food and a good cocktail on the side ;-)
Really enjoyable pre-theatre dinner. I’d read a few reviews about small portions but we were so stuffed we couldn’t manage a dessert. We had the sardines to start which were great but the showstopper was the polenta, mushrooms and hazelnuts. So delicious. We took the special offer of two courses plus wine but also had bread. Lovely feel to the restaurant. Charming staff.
The pizzas at Radici just get better, that dough, how do they do it? Great Italian food and a pretty good cocktail to go with it 👌🏽
Set menu very average. One starter was literally two iceberg lettuce hearts smeared with a tiny bit of avocado and sprinkled with seeds. Couldn't believe it. Service not particularly friendly either, and they couldn't get us off our table fast enough. Beautiful restaurant but won't be going back. And by the look of the empty seats everywhere, think many others have the same idea
The stand out aspect of this restaurant was definitely the service. What smiley, polite, lovely receptionists and waiters! Put as at ease and made us very comfortable. The evening standard deal was great value for money and the vegan options were delicious. Thanks for a lovely meal.
