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.

Great food, service was slow
(((** 30 November 2017 by Allyson Dalton from Warrington
We were warmly greeted and attended to very quickly. The whole sea bream was beautifully cooked and the meatballs tasty - and what delicious potatoes! We shared a chocolate dessert to indulge my daughter. Sadly however, the level of service was not maintained, which my daughter found unusual for Rotorino. After being served dessert, the staff seemed to disappear - later my daughter siad the original waiter was at the far end of the bar on a laptop. We had to chase staff to pay, having given up on the idea of coffee. So, great food, great start, but please don't wane at the end - it puts customers off!

I love rotorino. The food is always excellent and the service and staff and super friendly and knowledgable about the dishes, especially as they change the menu so often. Their coponata, and other seasonal salads and pastas always change and never fail to taste amazing and are interesting. Then they always have some fail safes like hanger steak and rosemary potatoes on the menu. The drink selection has clearly been carefully selected and everything has a thoughtful touch added. Their regional monthly dinners are also so good and a great idea. Also great value for money . One of my favourite London restaurants.

Hidden gem along Kingsland High Street. The decor and atmosphere are fab. The food was excellent and great service from Alex.

The food was excellent, however the service was indifferent and dishes were forgotten on both courses. Cutlery was nonchalantly half thrown onto the table in some instances. Also, the wine order was taken after the main course had arrived. It’s a shame that I don’t want to return as the food really was very good.

Warm interior, lovely lighting. Enjoyed the starter of fig and mozarella, the pork ragu rigatoni was interesting but I preferred the sauce of the meatballs, which are also very tasty. My friend had delicious pizzette and very adventurous smoked eel pasta! Delicious wine list, reasonanble prices, and a very accommodating and friendly staff.
