There's a focus on clean living at this new concept restaurant in Dalston - it's all about a holistic approach to the food and drink that's served. That means environmental sustainability when it comes to sourcing, an apparently 'alkaline' Mediterranean menu, and 'pure' (filtered) water used throughout the prep. There's plenty of the latter to drink, too.
The fully-vegan menu boasts an Italian bent, with options ranging from pizzas by the slice (think home-made cashew mozzarella-style cheese, soy ham, spicy seitan salami, soy sausage, olives and chilli flakes) to garlic bread, gluten-free pasta, healthy salads and 'pure' soups.
There's booze on the drinks list, so don't go thinking it's all holier-than-thou here. The Wild Card Brewery provides the real ale, Italy the lager and Devon the cider. Plus there's old world wines by the glass, and a cocktail list that includes negronis, mojitos, cuba libres and caipirinhas. But health freaks fret not - there are freshly squeezed juices, organic soft drinks, herbal teas and plenty of that filtered water. There's strong Italian coffee, too.
We believe that it is time for a revolution in food culture, and that our focus needs to be realigned to consider the nutritional factors, health implications and environmental impact of what we put into our bodies. Our concept is not tokenism. The intensity and pace of modern living, along with its countless distractions has brought about a culture increasingly demanding of instant gratification. This means that we continually and unknowingly forsake the quality that is the basis of a good life. This quality is borne from simple things, and fundamental to everything is water; not least for the human body. Our bodies need a regular injection of pure water to function properly – this is the very essence of our health and the basis of a strong body and mind. This is why all of our produce is created with pure water as its base ingredient. We do alcohol too: wine, beers and cocktails – vegan of course!
A blessing to east London plant-based drooling and any other foodie who is after proper healthy Italian gourmet! Come to Dalston (a few minutes away from Shoreditch and Hoxton) and get Fed! Buon appetito!

This is the best fusion between italian and global biodynamic aware gastronomy.
There is a thought and art in any detail.

Every successful business is run by passion and Fabio is the master of pasta in Hackney.....all we need is Love while making food!! F.E.D is the place!!
Fed by Love.... as Love is in each dish I have tried here! Great atmosphere too and the best Spritz in town! it's a must!
UNBELIEVABLE ! I used to eat pizza 4-5 time a week in Rome, but I never expected to find such a tasty one in London. One of the best three pizza I never tasted. Staff is an added value Super Cozy and well designed place, and Good vibes for Music Lovers. An EMOTIONAL experience not to be missed Definitively!
Now that is one real reason to get to Dalston-chilled, beautifully designed space with yummy Italian food. DJ and Aperitivo events will rock your food- met many cool creatives there, lunching or dining with their Macs. A destination place for sure .
Ci sono capitata per caso, con un gruppo di amiche, ma ci siamo rimaste fino a sera invece di proseguire la visita della cittá, come se fossimo nel nostro locale preferito. Autentici sapori della Puglia, infatti gli ingredienti provengono dall'Italia. Lo consiglio davvero.
Amazing place! Cool ambient and friendly people. Very italian style food. Delicious cakes and tipical italian products! Good music. Something a part the people and the staff... All was kindley and smart!!! We had a greath aperitivo and spent great time.
Love this place. So much care goes into everything they do; the food is delicious, the staff are friendly and passionate, it's unique to the area and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The vibe totally changes in the evenings - it's like a little piece of the Med in Dalston!
Great authentic place. The kitchen works hard to deliver really healthy and tasty food. Aperitivo idea is excellent. Eat and drink for just 10 quid! Good stuff.
rubbish out of packets..and part of one in my mouth after eating a starter..they dont even make there own pasta! haha
My favourite Italian in Dalston /Hackney. Thank you Fabio for being very professional and friendly. Great original food cooked to order. Satisfaction guaranteed.
Super friendly staff and best of all a great choice of Vegan food which is so hard to come by in this area of London. Their vegan mushroom Calzone is to die for.
Great vegan pizzas just like in Naples!! Great ambiance great people and great music... what else? Is just all great.
Amazing italian food with great selection for vegetarian enthusiasts!!! And Music is good there too ...
Fedbywater not only has the most friendly attentive staff but it also offers a range of delicious vegan dishes (and as a vegan I make a point of going here) in particular the four "cheese" vegan pizza and vegan mousse! Excellent place and would recommend it to all!
I love this place with its healthy and tasty food appealling to vegans as well as to "normal" food sinners. Slick design, interesting ambience, great music & sound, awesome italian coffe, good cakes and proper service.... What would you want more?
I must say that I had my doubts, as Italian, before deciding to enter this place.....the name wasn't Italian...the menu listed several vegan and vegetarian dishes (???!!!), plus it looked a bit too hipster to me ;-) ....but then, one day, I was reckless enough to dash in and order a plate of Spaghetti alla Bottarga!
I am addicted, so you know, for me it's like the Ultimate Test, Black or White, Live or Die and now............................. I am addicted to Fed, 100% Italian doc! Because the secret of a real plate of Spaghetti alla Bottarga is....La Bottarga, loads of it! (beside of course real spaghetti, properly cooked and real proper olive oil) . Bravi bene bis e tris e .... un amaro, grazie!
One of the best pizza I have ever tasted in my life happened at "FED by Water" in London....not in Rome. It's crazy! Lucky Londoners!!!
