Pizza, pasta and much more classic Italian fare at a prime Spitalfields location

Pizza – from a wood-fired oven – and pasta form the backbone of La Pietra's menu. But there is plenty of other choice, both in the antipasti and in main courses of meat or fish. Rough-hewn walls and floor lend an industrial feel to the interior.

Neighbourhood Italian that makes nice authentic wood oven pizzas and other dishes. Although it is not very busy on my few visits, there's always Italians enjoying a meal there. Worth a visit when in the neighbourhood.

La Pietra is as of yet- undiscovered. This is surprising, since  it's a mere 1 minute walk from Spitalfields, and it sits on busy Commercial Street in e1.  It's quite often quiet, especially at lunchtimes. However, the Italian food is one of the best I've experienced in London. Don't let the quiet put you off. This place does an epic selection of pastas. I had the wild boar bolgonese, which was NUTS GOOD. One of my pals had a pizza which also looked yum yum yum yum yum. Did I mention YUM?

If you're thinking of going to a BS low quality chain restaurant nearby, you should seriously consider this lovely independent restaurant instead. It is really good value and the food is just delicious. I only wish it was a little busier (not loaddddssss busier so I can still get a table, please)but  to give it a bit more atmosphere. Sure that will come with time as more people experience it.
