Operating as a pop up called Tear 4 Fritti (as seen on instagram tear4fritti).

Returning to fresh pasta at the end of may.

Arte e pasta is an Italian sharing plate restaurant, that uses ingredients imported from Slow Food producers throughout Italy, by the food wholesaler, The Chefs Deli.

Whilst its sister restaurant, Bombetta London in Wanstead (next to Snaresbrook underground Station) focuses on Italian grill, the main feature here is fresh pasta.

The restaurant doubles as a gallery, managed by Wood Street Walls, who facilitated an amazing mural on the front of the building. It is a skip and a hop from the delights of the famous neon collection at Gods Own Junk Yard, Pillars Brewery, Mothers Ruin Distillery, Wild Card Brewery tap room; the wider vibrant Walthamstow Village area. Located under a 10 minute walk from both Wood Street Station and Walthamstow Central, come by train, enjoy the wine list, craft beers on tap and creative cocktail menu.

Service was great but food and drinks were a bit overpriced. Not a real ‘Italian’ vibe but food was not bad :)

This restaurant is excellent and well worth the detour. We ate outside due to COVID restrictions. The food was superb, service friendly and efficient and it was very COVID secure. Highly recommended.

A pasta restaurant that doesn’t even sell one pasta dish. Food we did order was average at best, Only a couple of choices of bad overpriced wine. Loads of staff but still have to wave them down to get attention. Such a shame they’ve gotten everything wrong, it had so much promise!

Went out to Arte e Pasta for our first post lockdown lunch. The food was amazing, the service was friendly and relaxed and the cocktails were delicious.

I will be back!

Delicious food and wonderful service! We were thoroughly looked after and made to feel special on our first lunch out since lockdown was lifted! Amazing cocktails and beautiful artwork. The arancini balls were so yummy, can’t wait to return and try more dishes! Highly recommend this hidden gem

Thank you Kate, we are thrilled to be open with the tear4fritti pop up in the alley and thank you for such fantastic feedback. We will be back top fresh pasta in May and we hope you will tell all your friends and family about us. Take care, Ben.

Cool outdoor covered terrace, blankets to keep warm if needed. (We didn’t.) Delicious Sicilian-tinged sharing plates, highlights were truffle salami, anchovy and tomato focaccia, burrata, and nduja panzerotti. Yummy creamy tiramisu. Francia corta to drink as a special occasion was also delicious. Our baby loved the breadsticks and all the attention! Wonderful service too. Can’t wait to return.

Just fabulous. We are really lucky to have these guys, what a welcome addition to the Walthamstow dining scene!
Attended on both nights it has opened so far - once the night before lockdown to sample the pasta, and the first day of outdoor dining, for the Tear4Fritti pop up on the newly kitted out terrace.
Food is exceptional, and reasonably priced for the quality, with lovingly-sourced ingredients and friendly staff. The house wine is a real treat.
The first and second of many memorable nights here... if we can get a table once people catch on!

Great atmosphere and welcoming hosts. Especially impressive given that it was opening night and only hours before Tier 3 kicked in.

Delicious, simple food with a decent variety.

Will be back for the second opening night.
