Lovely as always, I still miss the old waiters they really used to make me laugh, the the new ones look after you well however they didn't offer us any bread. The food was yummy and especially my favourite the toffee bread

The cosy Trattoria La Ruga in Walthamstow Village serves authentic Italian cuisine to east London, with an exquisite menu which changes daily. Intimate and romantic, the restaurant has a small terrace for al fresco dining, and offers a selection of fine wines from the region.

Using seasonal ingredients, the Trattoria La Ruga menu could include starters of leek and garlic risotto or chargrilled tiger prawns. The meatball gnocchi is a favourite, or try chicken liver pate with red onion jam.

Pastas are served in 2 sizes at the Trattoria La Ruga restaurant, with classic carbonara and pesto Genovese among the regulars. Swordfish with lemon relish or sea bream with olives are typical seafood choices, while meat dishes may include rib-eye steak or braised joint of lamb.

The wine selection includes the work of small, artisan growers to provide pure, refreshing complements to La Ruga’s fine Italian food. On the upmarket Orford Road in the village area, Trattoria La Ruga in Walthamstow is an 8-minute walk from Walthamstow Central Tube Station.

    A great little restaurant that never fails to impress with their food and service. We had a great 3 course meal, with wine and desert wine and the bill came to [$]. Highly recommended for couples or groups of up to 6.
