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.

    Hello. I have been in Rotorino several times and I am a fan, however I believe for the style/ service of restaurant you should include some more offering. I would suggest including bread and butter to start with for example. Also in terms of the set up maybe give some more space in between the tables that lead to the toilets. You have enough space in the floor to make it work, maybe reduce some space in the entrance area?! PS. What are these feedback different sections?!

    The food was excellent and so was the service!
    Our food was delayed and they offered us a wine carafe to wait, to compensate, which was very nice!
    The atmosphere is trendy, welcoming and festive at the same time.
    Perfect for a dinner with friends or a date!

    I took my mum to Rotorino for Mother's Day, we both had a fab time. Our waitress was fab, very attentive to our needs. Went through the menu in details. Mum and I had the Pork Roast. Was lush! The service, ambience and everything was just spot on. Would recommend.

    Loved Rotorino. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food! The only small issue is our food took a while to come out. Our waitress was so lovely we quickly forgot :) Reasonably priced - I’d defo go again!!

    amazing food and atmosphere.. it was busy so the service at the start was a little inattentive, nowhere to hang coats, no offer of taking coats... my friends were late but no one came and checked if i wanted a drink while i waited...

    Really nice fit out and ambience but more of a place to have drinks and a quick bite. Staff were friendly but inattentive, food was ok but a bit disappointing (although the mozzarella starter was excellent), wine wasn't chilled etc. Nothing too terrible but nothing really great either.

    Excellent. Lovely atmosphere, delicious food and good value. Would be good to get Seedlip on the drinks menu.

    A really delicious meal. Fresh food well cooked with interesting twists. The service is good. I was particularly impressed by waiter recommending the house white and not a £50 bottle of wine. The Sicilian house white is outstandingly good. A lovely evening. I'll be back and have recommended it to many friends, some of whom have already been and enjoyed it as much as I did.

    Very nice interior design. Casual but still with a sense of occasion. Staff were well informed on the menu and attentive without being overbearing though a bit longer to read through the menu would have improved the experience as it felt slightly pressured.. Food was excellent and we shared multiple dishes between three of us. It was good value for money in terms of the quality. The gnudi in particular were terrific. Desserts were good but maybe a bit similar to offers in lots of other places.

    Busy restaurant with a nice atmosphere and interior, but a bit too noisy. Good service and the first two courses were good (Mozzarella and a fennel salad). The vegetarian pasta dishes where very underwhelming. The casarecce lacked of seasoning and was way under cooked. The gnudi on the other hand was over cooked and had no texture (really mushy).
