Italian Restaurants in Camden
1. Morso Italian restaurant in Camden 130 Boundary Road - NW8
“This jewel-like place in a faintly unfashionable corner of St John’s Wood exceeds expectations” with “fresh pasta”, “friendly service”, and “an exciting grappa list”, plus “grappa-themed cocktails that really hit the spot”. Downsides? “It is very noisy”, and “the small-plates format means that bills can add up alarmingly”.
2. Purezza Pizza restaurant in Camden 43 Parkway - NW1
“Truly amazing tastes recommended for both vegans and non-vegans!” help win high scores for this year-old, Camden Town offshoot of the UK’s first vegan pizzeria (which first hit Brighton in 2015). Bases include sourdough, hemp and gluten-free options: “it’s the best pizza I’ve had in a very long time!”. Top Tip – kids under 10 get a free pizza when eating with their parents.
3. In Parma Italian restaurant in Camden 10 Charlotte Place - W1T
2019 Review: “I hate to admit it, but the cappelletti in brodo” (“pasta filled with Parmesan cheese and beef, slowly cooked for a couple of days and served in a rich capon broth, all of which really is exceptional”) “might even be better than my mother’s!!” – This Fitzrovia Italian (run by the Food Roots company, and sibling to Hoxton’s Via Emilia) offers “authentic Parmesan dishes, prepared by authentic Parmesans”, with an emphasis on charcuterie and cheeses from Parma, and with “good Lambrusco served in traditional crockery” (by the bowl) being something of a hallmark. “The restaurant itself is long and narrow and would be a bit of a squeeze when busy, but service is pleasant and prices reasonable. Recommended.”
4. Fiddie’s Italian Kitchen Italian restaurant in Camden 13 New College Parade - NW3
“Fun and lively, with a management who make you feel extremely welcome” – this simple, ‘Italian kitchen’ in Swiss Cottage serves pizza and pasta plus somewhat more ambitious dishes: it’s all “delicious and good value for money”.
5. Monmouth Kitchen restaurant in Camden 20 Mercer St - WC2H
In the heart of Covent Garden's Seven Dials, a Peruvian/Italian tapas (small plates) restaurant that is handy to know about pre-theatre.
6. The Belrose Italian restaurant in Camden 94 Haverstock Hill - NW3

8. Trufflesecco Italian restaurant in Camden 11-13 Camden High Street - NW1
A new wine bar by Mornington Crescent station specialising in prosecco and truffles (as the name suggests).
