Italian
Want to know where Londoners go for get-away-from-it-all dining? Look no further than La Figa, an Italian restaurant where charming service and good food go hand-in-hand with relaxation. Hidden away from the busy streets of central London in newly fashionable Limehouse, La Figa is a bit of a hidden gem, the sort of place that everybody knows about but really does want to keep to themselves. Bright and cheerful, the interior is entirely modern with an upbeat, almost canteen-y feel to its simple furnishings and glorious pantone-esque colour scheme, which just can’t fail to make you smile. Glorious cocktails of every flavour, colour and aroma are accompanied by great Italian food here at La Figa, the menu as relaxed as the dining room, offering the best of traditional Italian food with a coastal, sunshine-infused flavour throughout. The La Figa kitchen uses typical ingredients in pizza, pasta, meat and fish dishes to evoke sun drenched holidays and bustling piazzas.

Service was poor
trying to constantly get waiters attention for napkins as there was no linen to use,
sticky table
and empty bottles and glass where left through out our 3 corse along with our used napkins,
very uncomfortable to eat Can’t fault the food over priced for what we had gone down hill won’t be returning again

First visit for a while. Not as busy as expected but still lively. Good service in quickly taking drinks order. Food order was mixed up (I received penne arrabiata instead of amatraciana), but it was still very tasty so no great problem (but would have been if other way round for a vegetarian diner).

The food was very good - which was a pleasant surprise given the terrible service. I cannot over emphasize how awful our experience was. We were ignored for about 25 minutes after being seated. They weren’t busy at all so there was no reason for the delay. When the server did come by the table he seemed completely put out and annoyed. He didn’t make eye contact and when he did speak he was condescending. Had it not been as late as it was (~1730) we would have walked out.

Our first visit to a lovely find......cleverly tucked away in a quiet square in Limehouse.

The food was not disappointing and was beautifully presented. We had ample time between courses and never felt any need to rush our meal.

The whole restaurant was a mixed hive of people out to enjoy themselves and yes, children are more than welcome.

And why not?

This restaurant just epitomizes how families can enjoy quality time together.

The staff compliment the food as they are engaging, colorful and attentive.

And price?

You pay for what you choose to order. Plus the range is wide and certainly great value for money.

Our next visit is already in the diary.

We might even see you there?

Good food in a busy restaurant only let down by the length of time it took to get the bill - we asked 4 times before going to the bar to ask again and finally being given a bill which was wrong (overcharge attempt). Pointed it out and it was rectified quickly. Were given a couple of lemoncello on the house to make up for the waiting time.

With exceptionally warm and friendly but not fussy service and incredibly delicious food, we were four very happy, very full people at the end. The mussels starter is DIVINE!!!!! Highly recommended.

Good experience. Food was very good.
Unfortunately my party felt a bit uneasy when they say many packs of pre-packed pasta on the counter at the kitchen.

Its the 2nd time I have been here within the last few months I had the same starter as before and it was exactly the same Beautiful scallops in bacon with garlic & chilli it was delicious ! I took my Mum for the first time she really liked it (although they love to overload the chilli eliment - be specific to staff not to go too mad with them)
I love a place with consistency and the portions are very generous - I love the personal touch when they ask you if you would like a drink on house very good move !

I’m very lucky that La Figa is close to my house so I get to eat there regularly. Food is amazing. Waiters are lovely. And it’s good value for the food you get. Portions are MASSIVE though and I always have to leave some which I feel so bad about. But it’s divine! Highly recommended.

Food middle of the road... bruchetta, olives, steak and spag bog ordered.

Wine over priced, 1st glass must have been from a bottle opened a week ago... 2nd glass better - but not £10 a glass worthy.

Didn't get child portion for an 8 year old - full price!

Ambience - cool / cold...

Waiters made an effort, improved overall experience.

Disappointing for the price... wont rush back, just convenient.

Waiter seemed not too pleased with us when we repeated our request for the bill. We had been waiting and we had a young child with us who needed to go to bed after spending the whole day outdoor! Otherwise everything was fine, food was good.
