Harden's says

Chef and restaurateur Phil Howard is bringing his lockdown pasta delivery service permanent in November 2022, with chef Louis Korovilas believed to be in charge of the kitchen - it was originally to be known as Otto (after Howard's lockdown pasta business), but lost a legal battle with "an unnamed “existing business with a similar name"

“It seems unlikely to find such good food at such a touristy location”, but “the lovely homemade pasta” at Phil Howard and Louis Korovilas’s bright and efficient new pasta spot is “a revelation”“very tasty Italian small plates at astonishingly reasonable prices for Piccadilly”, from a “focused menu of pastas and dessert”. (It was originally to be known as Otto – after Howard’s lockdown pasta business – but lost a legal battle with ‘an unnamed existing venture with a similar name’). BREAKING NEWS. In October 2023, a second 90-cover branch was announced to open in November 2023 in Covent Garden’s Henrietta Street.

"We were surprised at the quality of the pasta, it reminded us of Sicily. Which is where you get the best pasta in Italy. It all started so well, with the service and the food. Then it was like we were forgotten. They missed out on us buying more drinks and even having a dessert. We had to ask for the bill several times and they were not event that busy."
