Hand-rolled pasta is a highlight at Chris Leach and David Carter’s modern Soho trattoria, which is stylish but quite closely packed. It’s a site for their hit residency at 10 Heddon Street, which went permanent in Gt Marlborough Street in early 2020, then moved a year later to Shoreditch. As well as the pasta, there’s a range of small plates and – lunch only – focaccia sandwiches, stuffed with a choice of fillings.

Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Manteca Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Some really lovely food here. The small plates were all really nicely put together, and the sweetcorn & girolle pasta was a particular highlight from the pasta dishes. When we first arrived the place was packed and it was unbearably loud - realistically you were only able to speak to the person next to you. Not enough soft furnishings! Hope they fix this at their new home in Shoreditch"
