La Pastaia *

Formerly: Cafe España

Budget-friendly Tuscan in Old Compton St
Relatively inexpensive Italian restaurant with tasty Tuscan specialties including particuarly nice home-made pasta (some of it gluten-free) and daily specials. Opened 1 December 2016 by lovely Italian-born Sara Meloni, who ran popular Spanish restaurant Cafe España (in the same spot) from 2011 until its closure in 2016. Atmosphere is old-fashioned-intimate and decor is unaffectedly tasteful and nice, with warm service to match. This could become an Old Compton St classic. Located halfway between Comptons and the Duke of Wellington. Recommended.
