London's first 100% gluten-free Italian restaurant, La Polenteria Soho fuses traditional and modern Italian cooking in relaxed surrounds. Vegan and vegetarian-friendly, La Polenteria offers fresh, homemade pasta and classic Italian flavours.

The flavour-rich La Polenteria menu begins with the likes of poached spicy egg with polenta croutons and a tomato and garlic infusion, and courgette and ginger box stuffed with fresh vegetables and topped with caramelised onions. Innovative mains include pork fillet with liquorice sauce and grilled polenta, homemade fish ravioli with asparagus cream, and cauliflower steak with quinoa and courgette and a pie crust.

Joined by a selection of Italian dessert wines, discover classic desserts at La Polenteria London. Savour the gluten-free cheesecake, tiramisu, and panna cotta served with fresh fruit.

    Very good food, a bit drafty by the table close to the door.

    The gnocchi with truffles was delicious. Only thing that let our experience down was the slow service and we waited half an hour to pay our bill

    For the first time since being diagnosed as a coeliac, I enjoyed a wonderful meal in a restaurant feeling 100% safe in the knowledge that the restaurant's gluten free claim was wholly robust.

    Fabulous venue, fantastic menu and wonderful service.

    Francesco is always welcoming and has great energy about him. The food is always a delight. Being a coeliac it is so nice to know that I can eat anything on the menu.

    This has been an amazing experience. Both starter were delicious the main course were well presented and innovative. Desert: chocolate mousse with avocado (the balance was not right may be too much avocado) however the almond orange was delicious. It was such a pleasure not worring about any allergens and above all it was outstand! Thank you for creating this restaurant!

    Would've been nice if that when we made the booking 2 weeks prior to our visit, the website would've informed us that restaurant wasn't actually going to be open for that pertinent night. Left us very confused and disappointed.

    Rustic good home cooking - and all Gluten Free - Lots of choice and we sampled many dishes.

    Waiter was excellent particular as he was the only waiter ! so he was certainly rushed of his feet - but he always had a smile on his face. We was in no rush so it did not bother us.
