I've been to this establishment twice and on both occasions the waiter was brusque, the food mediocre (not fresh and just barely heated up in microwave) and after both visits had diarrhea. I've not had bad Italian food elsewhere, but this place excels at it, strange considering the quality ingredients they sell. Environmental Health should pay a visit.Report this
WOW this place has so many bad reviews

WOW this place has so many bad reviews I think were going to have to go just to see if its really that bad, even the good reviews have SO obviously been written by the owners. Anyway me and my Mrs really like Pomodoro, ( 12 High st , Hornsey ) its a really basic place and ever so cheep, yet family friendly and yummy, the Calzone is the best. ( £ 6.90 )Report this
very grumpy staff!

My friend and I went this morning with our toddlers for a cup of tea and breakfast. At first the staff were friendly, but things changed dramatically towards the end of our visit. Our girls were so well behaved for the whole breakfast (quiet and staying at the table), as we were getting up to go they ran away from the table for all of a second and shrieked with delight as they ran towards the door. We immediately called them back and they listened. However, one of the main staff shouted at us in front of everyone, saying, "this isn't a creche". When we left we explained to him that this is normal toddler behaviour and that other restaurants in Crouch End welcomed kids or were at least more understanding and tolerant of normal children's behaviour . He said, "I would rather you NOT come here." I am not sure why they bother to have a children's breakfast option if they are so unwelcoming and rude to customers with children. It perhaps explains why on a busy morning in Crouch End, when Starbucks and Sable D'or, are packed with Mothers and kids and other customers, that The Italian Food Hall is nearly empty! We will certainly not be going back, with or without kids!Report this

Service was so bad we didnt even see out food. I ordered a mushroom dish and my partner a basic chicken dish.We didnt get asked what drinks we wanted for 10 mins, not a great start. Had asked for bread and olives, which is exactly that, dry white bread, no oil or balsamic, olives out of a jar! 40 mins in was asked if we wanted out main course! WHAT!!!? Still no food 15 mins later, asked again, he checked, told another 10 mins, we left... Waiter even argued that they were busy (half of restaurant empty) and that meat took long time to cook (its a chicken breast for gods sake) despite the fact 4 tables served in front of us...Never ever go to this place....ITS rubbishReport this

this is an amazing space to sit, the food is a little bit disappointing regarding quality and price. but worst is the service, never have been such bad treated as customer. and a tipp for the waiter: dont try to be italian and ask where we are coming from when you are not even able to pronounce "Arrivederci!".... seems like this place is not italian at all. once and never again.Report this
couldn't care less

Really bad attitude from the very people who should be welcoming locals trying to suppport local business. The owner in here barks at customers and in the end i walked out disgusted by lack of basic manners. How can these guys justify being so unpleasant to people!! I read in the local press that these guys are at logerrheads with the council over planning issues. If they treat the council with the same contempt i am not suprised the are not resolving their issues. I also read that the planning issues are over the decking they have installed and not in fact the overhead canopies on the square , which i was led to believe. Its such a shame as this unit really benefits from having a tenant.Report this
Fabulous food- stunted service
20/09/2008 by kittihawk
I have to say that I agree with most the comments on the page about the service. However, I went with my boyfriend and even the most simple savoury dish (pasta with a home made pesto) was pant-wettingly good (very flavourful). We went back and had it again a couple of weeks later. The desserts seemed to be a bit of an afterthough- the tiramisu was a bit stale.Report this
Excellent Food and Service

The Italian Food Hall is located in the building that used to be the Electricity Board showrooms in Crouch End Broadway. Little did I know when I was a child that I'd be eating Italian food in the place where my mum used to queue up to pay the fuel bills all those years ago. I have eaten at the Italian Food Hall on a number of occasions now. Each time, I have found the service to be efficient and friendly and not 'in-yer-face'like some restaurants I've encountered. The food served has been of excellent quality and very reasonably priced. £50 for a meal for two consisting of two coffees, starters, main courses, puddings, two beers, a bottle of house wine and two additional glasses of house red is not a high price to pay in my book for a good meal in a restaurant in London. I've paid a lot more for much worse in restaurants in Nottingham. I’ve found the Italian Food Hall to have a lively and vibrant atmosphere and it has been packed with diners and shoppers whenever I've visited it – usually a very positive sign. Whenever I come back to Crouch End with my partner, we always visit the Italian Food Hall to have a meal and have always been very pleased with the service there and with the food.Report this
the worst service ever...
31/05/2008 by dimita
this place is overpriced and their staff are painfully slow. Come customers had to walk up, ask fro a menu, and then walk up again to the waiters, and place their orders (Strange! I thought it's the waiter who should come to your table and take your order)... The chain-smoking owner seemed to be the only satisfied customer there! His coffee cup was always full!Report this
What do you want me to do about it?
17/02/2008 by MillieH
'What do you want me to do about it?' barked the oversized, over-aggressive, mafia-esque proprieter of this establishment. We had simply voiced a polite objection that one dish recevied was not as described on the menu. With an undignified swoop he snatched the dish away grunting dismissively that he would be 'charging us for it anyway'. The one main course we were left with was passable at best -the 'rare' steak more accurately described as medium/well-done. We left feeling somewhat cheated. I can only imagine that his business is doing exceedingly well as he blatantly does not reqiure return custom.Report this

We went in there yesterday for a coffee instead of visiting Costa/Starbucks (like to support local businesses after all!). Was greated at the door by a miserable and surly proprietor who pointed us to a table. We had to wait about 5 mins for someone to give us a menu. We ordered 2 coffees and 2 eggs benedict (about £18). The coffee was ok but the benedict was dry and the sauce did not taste like hollandaise (what little there was) - it had been put under the grill and set so there was no delicious sauce. The waiter asked us if everything was ok so I gave him some feedback, he snarled and said "we put it under the grill". I told him again that this had dried everything up and he repeated that they always put the sauce under the grill then stormed off. This looked like a great bustling place, full of lovely deli items and unusual pastas. I was going to do some shopping but after the indifferent service we left, vowing never to come in again.Report this

this place used to be an electrical shop and now it is an italian cafe which moved up from hornsey road. i just paid £2.25 for a coffee and £4.50 for a piece of chocolate cake. i am outraged and would advise you not to go there. the coffee was okay, the cake was both oversweet and overpriced.Report this
