Really liked the design of the place, it feels welcoming and comfortable. All staff are very nice and attentive. The only thing I would mention mostly being from the same industry, is that staff should not be chewing gum on the floor.

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.

    Amazing décor, well spaced tables, comfortable seating and super attentive and helpful staff. The food was mostly very good. The second courses (we tried two pasta dishes) from the 4 on offer as part of the Sunday Roast menu were delicious. Our table all went for the Porcetta. Amazing piece of pork, cooked excellently. For most tastes it was far too salty though. Just about ok for me as I like salty food but the rest of the party struggled with how overbearing the salt was. The beef shin looked incredible, perhaps would have been the better of the two meat options. The puddings were superb. Bloody Mary also highly recommended.

    Really nice atmosphere on a Saturday night, bust and bustley, but not too noisy.
    The staff were nice (although, if you think they've forgotten about an order, tell them, they probably have).
    The house wine was good for the price.
    The specials were very tasty.
    Will go back

    This is my favourite restaurant in the whole of London. I used to be a local but I've since moved south and miss having this lovely, cosy, delicious place on my doorstep. I've never had a bad dining experience at Rotorino and I can't say enough good things about the staff; they're surely the most polite, friendly and obliging in east London (an area not known for its great service!). The lighting is splendid, the decor is classy yet informal and the wine selection is excellent.

    Great atmosphere.
    Fabulous food showing the wonderful simplicity of great Italian cooking when properly done.
    Attentive and knowledgeable service. Nicely laid back in a professional way.

    Overall pleasant dinner, good venue and good value for money, food was decent but to come back for about and there were some duff notes in the menu - high notes: rustic pasta primi were simple but tasty, low note: starters - fried seafood was greasy and unpleasant and the mini lasagne and pizza bites added nothing to the experience - reminded me of something from an Iceland ad for party food

    Nice atmosphere and the food was great - especially the hanger steak and seabream carpaccio! Friendly service who coped well with my request for ice with my white wine, which gets ignored elsewhere! Would return.
