Restaurant description

Described by Time Out magazine as ‘one of Upper Street’s best kept secrets’, Stef's @ Oregano is an independently-run Italian restaurant in Islington that takes pride in its traditional wood-fired pizzas. Named after the ‘pizza herb’, the restaurant uses freshly sourced ingredients, many of which are imported directly from Italy.

Mediterranean character on the Oregano menu shines through in speciality seafood pastas, which include a clam and mussel linguine with white wine, tomato and parsley. A diverse selection of rustic pizzas can always be upgraded with extra ingredients from pine nuts to prawns, while calzones include the eponymous Oregano, with ricotta cheese, Italian sausage, ham, mushrooms and oregano.

Meat-lovers can tuck into tagliata, an Italian classic of sliced sirloin steak with rosemary, garlic, olive oil and rocket, topped with parmesan shavings. To conclude, traditional ice creams become even more indulgent when topped with an optional liqueur extra, and classic house desserts such as tiramisu and panna cotta can be enjoyed until late in the simple yet modern layout of the Stef's @ Oregano restaurant in London.

A friendly neighbourhood restaurant, Stef's @ Oregano is tucked away in St Alban’s Place, a 9-minute walk from Angel Tube Station.

    Lovely, privately-owned Italian restaurant located slightly off the main street - which makes it all the more special! The staff are great - especially the manager Rosario who is extremely helpful and pleasant. We had a great meal from the set menu - which included free flowing Prosecco (by the bottle!) - and the Salmon Spaghetti was fantastic. Booking is easy and a consistently warm welcome awaits you......something not always found in London - especially with some of the larger chains. We’ll be back soon!

    Probably one of the best pizza restaurants in London, combined with the prosecco and it deserves way more than 5 stars!
