Right beside Old Street roundabout, Passo is a stunning LA-style Italian eatery, serving polished modern recipes all through the day. A dramatic industrial-style interior includes an open kitchen with counter seating, there is a popular outdoor terrace, while live DJs start spinning from Thursday evening into the weekend.

The Passo menu starts off with breakfast and brunch, with options ranging from healthy granolas, through panettone French toast and the Shoreditch bagel plate. Later on, the a la carte menu offers up small plate dishes of beef and mortadella meatballs, moving on to pasta dishes like wild boar pappardelle, and hand-stretched pizzas.

Settle down at the chic cocktail bar at Passo in Old Street for signature negronis and mixes made with exotic ingredients like jalapeño-infused mezcal. There is also a polished wine list served that includes premium champagnes and prosecco.

Featuring stunning interior style and a chic LA feel, Passo is moments from Old Street Tube Station, and a short walk from the nightlife of Shoreditch.

    Really, really delicious food, it's a shame that once we'd finished our main (and had declined dessert) we were pretty much left to our own devices, no top ups of water and no offers of anymore drinks - not sure if this was because it was getting quite busy or because they didn't care once we'd eaten! We had to grab the waiter's attention for more wine and water.

    We ate the roasted chicken, pappardelle ragu and mushroom pizza, all of which were delicious, although I could have done with a slightly larger portion of the pasta (and I rarely say that after eating pasta dishes!)

    The customer service was great, we was served by a very polite gentleman who was very patient.
    Favourite dish was the poached chocolate cake and honey and ginger ice cream

    Love the setting at Passo, it feels like a spacious New York restaurant. The food is amazing, especially the starters and the pizzas and the prices are reasonable too. We shared 2 starters, 4 mains and two bottles of prosecco for £40 a head. Only issue is that the service at the end of the night was very slow and it took 30 mins to get our bill despite trying to catch the attention of multiple waiters.

    Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere.
    Disappointing that we booked thinking we would receive the brunch menu, only for that menu to be pulled before our visit without us being informed. The lunch menu however was very tasty.
    Service was friendly, if a little slow given how few customers were in the restaurant and how many waiting staff.

    Food was excellent but the restaurant was quite noisy -- the music was really loud causing everyone to shout to be heard, which made the place even louder. I hope the restaurant would look into fixing this in the future.

    Our dinner at Passo was lovely. The interiors are gorgeous; we were sat outside on the terrace which was a great way to spend the evening. Every dish was delicious and beautifully presented, and the prices were very fair too. We had the burrata and meatballs to start, and the cod and parpadelle for main. The bottle of pinot grigio we had was delicious. The waitstaff were all very friendly and struck the right balance when it came to attentiveness. Would definitely return and think it is a great place for anything from a casual lunch or a group celebration to dining out for an occasion.
