Restaurant description

From much-celebrated chef Francesco Mazzei, Radici is an authentic Italian trattoria in Islington. Translating as ‘roots,’ Radici reflects the Calabrian cuisine of Francesco’s heritage, as well as incorporating dishes from across Italy.

Offering a carefully selected range of charcuterie and cheese, the ever-evolving Radici menu also features many of Francesco’s favourite dishes from his homeland. Tuck into the likes of salt cod with potatoes and tomato sauce, eggless pasta with southern Italian lamb, pork and beef ragu, and calf liver stuffed with pancetta, garlic and sage, served with smoked potato mash.

From the traditional wood-fired oven in the heart of the trattoria come fresh pizzas and bread, whilst a feasting menu is on offer every Sunday.

A charming hidden gem, Radici in London is found 10 minutes' walk from Highbury & Islington and Angel Tube stations.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Chose pretheatre lunch menu. Pizza for main course was dreadful, soggy and inedible. Tried to get waitress attention to report this, but she kept avoiding our table Service was not as good as it should have been. We were grossly overcharged by £11.00 even though service had been taken off. Waitress had charged for everything separately, and we had to clear this that we had 2 pretheatre menus, one 2 course, one 3 course. Necessitated dealing with the managers. I personally would not go back from choice.

    Our waiter was very friendly and helpful, however the food arrived in stages so no one ate together and my food was forgotten altogether and I had to remind the waiter and when my meal finally arrived there was no apology. Our reservation was on a Wednesday evening and neither the food, nor the atmosphere were as good as the meal we had previously eaten on a Saturday night.

    Occasion was for my daughter and my recent birthday cerebration, and recovery from her operation. We had pre theatre menu as we both enjoyed previously that after the visit to Sadllers well. We thoroughly enjoyed not only the food but lively summery happy evening, too. Staffs are so warm and friendly, making our day very special. We would love to come back soon again.

    Slow service, the mackerel was not charred as described but instead had slimy soft skin. Aubergine fritters were good, we enjoyed the Sicilian rose wine, and had no complaints about the bread and olives. Also, it’s a very noisy restaurant - it would benefit from acoustic panels on the walls and foam dampeners under the chairs and tables.

    We have been to there for a couple of occasions with our toddler. The staff are very helpful and attentive. Food are good and kids menu is of very good value. The pasta was delicious too! Zucchini fries is a must.
