Three places to go for a great Italian in Queen’s Park

Written by

Queen’s Park is a great little hub, a mere 15 minutes from Oxford Circus on the good ol’ rickety Bakerloo line. It’s got countless foodie spots – but it does Italian restaurants particularly well. If you’re in the mood to indulge in a large glass of chianti with a pizza or a huge bowl of pasta, try one of these places:


Ostuni restaurant is dedicated to all things Puglia. It serves traditional pasta from the region and seafood is its speciality – expect everything from shellfish pasta dishes to wild sea bass and bream baked in a salt crust. 43-45 Lonsdale Road, NW6 6RA.

The Salusbury

Fresh and delicious stone-fired pizzas are what The Salusbury does best. It offers a dizzying array of toppings for your pizza so you can make your own bespoke creations. 50-52 Salusbury Road, NW6 6NN.

Ida is also a firm local favourite and if you want to feel like a true Queen’s Parker, head here. Its homely, intimate and candle-lit atmosphere is the perfect spot for a weekend Italian dinner. Run by a husband-and-wife team, the food is focused on traditional home cooking made from hand-me-down recipes – the pasta is also made fresh and hand rolled every day. 167 Fifth Avenue, W10 4DT.
