Review: Pasta at La Nonna, Flat Iron Square | FOOD

Continuing in my quest to try all of London’s best pasta restaurants, I’d seen La Nonna all over instagram so I decided to add it to my London Restaurant Hit List and one wet and miserable Tuesday evening I headed over across London Bridge to Flat Iron Square for a comforting bowl of pasta.

Flat Iron Square is the sort of place that must be amazing in summertime as it’s got loads of different stalls and places to get different foods so I’ve made a mental note to head back next year. La Nonna (which means grandma) is one of these which I was excited to try. It doesn’t open until six so we grabbed some drinks from another stall and settled down onto one of the inside tables (it was chucking it down outside) while we waited. We were the first people to order and it’s an open kitchen where you can watch your food being freshly prepared right in front of your eyes

La Nonna – What We Ordered

After seeing the incredible looking mozzarella sticks (£4.50) on Instagram I knew that I had to order them and oh my goodness I wasn’t disappointed. They were piping hot, crispy on the outside and oozing with cheesy goodness on the inside. The five mozzarella sticks are served with a fiery sauce made of sweet peppers and tomatoes which was tasty although maybe a bit too spicy for my liking!

We ordered two different types of pasta to try; the Cacio & Pepe Tonnarelli (£7) with a black pepper and pecorino emulsion and the Pappardelle Slowcooked Ox Tail Ragu (£8.50). The pappardelle was definitely my favourite, the tomato sauce was rich and flavourful and the ox tail was soft and tasty. The Cacio & Pepe was tasty but really quite rich and creamy.

I’d also seen the Nutella filled mini donuts on instagram and knew that I’d love these. Six pieces are served with a zabione custard to dip the donuts in and they were amazing; absolutely piping hot and delicious. In comparison to other pasta restaurants I’ve been to, Flour & Grape is still my absolute favourite.

La Nonna – 3/5

I think I’d go back purely for the mozzarella sticks and Nutella donuts alone! Tasty pasta in a really relaxed atmosphere.

Food – 4/5

Service – 2/5

Decor / Ambience – 2/5

The total cost for two people was £24.50, not including drinks.
