From the acclaimed team behind Dock Kitchen, Rotorino is a sleek southern Italian eatery that brings rustic Mediterranean cuisine to East London. Whether enjoying al fresco pavement dining or the elegant restaurant area, diners can indulge in an outstanding range of Italian and international wins selected by Ruth Spivey of Street Vin.

The Rotorino menu spans everything from cured and wood-grilled meats, to rich mozzarella to fresh, decadent pasta. Diners can exult in the hanger steak with Calabrian chilli sauce, or enjoy one of the multiple choice house wines or chilled Italian beers available from the opulent, superbly-stocked bar.

Every detail in Rotorino is exquisitely observed, from the nautical decorations to the atmospheric low-hanging lamps. The effervescent blues and sultry caramels of the tiling and seating are instantly eye-catching, giving the restaurant a vibrant, coastal milieu that belies its urban setting.

An Italian-themed haven on the bustling Kingsland Road, Rotorino in London is just a 5-minute walk from Haggerston Station.

    we still love the ambience and the food.
    but the menu is static so how often will we go?

    We all enjoyed our dishes ..the menu was interesting to read all our starters lived up to expectations lively and tasty.My main course was chicken delicious but a bit too big I would rather have had a smaller portion with more vegetables done in an unusual way.

    The best feature of Rotorino is the interior - the decor, lighting and fit out are worth a visit. As are the cocktails. Would recommend going to drink at the bar. Unfortunately, I don't rate the food enough to warrant eating here again. A lot of it is over salted (found this to be true on my first trip too) and the brioche dessert was actually inedible, I spat out a mouthful of what tasted like a dry bread roll (haven't done that in a restaurant before!). Our lovely waitress quickly brought a replacement chocolate pudding despite my protestations. Service was a highlight - really attentive and helpful. We enjoyed our pasta dishes, but one hit out of 4 courses isn't enough to justify the cost when there are so many great restaurants in east London - maybe they should rebrand as a pasta & cocktails restaurant? Would definitely try that!

    Great service, lovely food especially the home made ice cream. Was quite noisy as the sound bounces around the room so everyone shouts!

    Another great meal at Rotorino and finally got to try their Sasso chicken. The only thing they need to sort out is their coffee- they've succumbed to the London thing of salty coffee rather than proper Italian espresso.
