Business Overview

TRADITIONAL FAMILY RUN ITALIAN RESTAURANT FRESH HAND MADE FOOD

IDA is a small restaurant full of character serving Italian food in an intimate and friendly setting.

Almost uniquely in London restaurants, Ida’s pasta is made freshly every day and rolled entirely by hand.

A dying art even in Italy, hand-rolled pasta is infinitely superior to anything produced by a machine, as its rougher texture traps and holds sugo on to its surface.

Our customers tell us that eating at Ida is like being transported to Italy for a few hours; while our relative innocence regarding the London restaurant scene means that we cook for our customers as though they were guests in an Italian home!

Good Italian food.
I love a restaurant with a good atmosphere, a relaxed family feel, and of course good food; and in Ida you can have all of that. I go to Ida restaurant every time i'm in London, and love trying the various dishes from the different regions of Italy. My mother is Italian, so i know what good italian food is when i see it!

Slack service, slap food
I went to Ida a year ago and loved it, I'd been meaning to go back for ages and finally got there tonight. Got a booking straight away which should have rung alarm bells due to being a sat evening. 7pm we were the only people there, an hour and a half later two more people walk ins from the street had just arrived. Lady owner was friendly but so lazy, on phone the entire time we had to help ourselves to wine glasses from our neighbouring table, entrees of puglian beans and spinach came with bruschetta that had been pre grilled/charred then warmed in a microwave so was soft/stale, my boyfriends Ragu was slapped in school dinner fashion on the plate all lopsided with grubby liquid on one side of the plate. Next was the seafood risotto, a seafood stew with what resembled uncle bens boil in the bag rice turned out on top, this was medium grain rice not arborio and we should have known as the chef certainly wasn't patiently stirring any risotto during the 1 and a quarter hours we waited for it (no apologies by owner who was on phone or talking to the chef the entire time) not once did she come to ask us if we needed anything and there wasn't one other guest to attend to in the entire place. We paid the 12.5 percent service charge as a final good riddance to one of the most careless slapdash meals we've had in London.

terrible experience
I have never written a review before but this time I really really would like to advice the people before going to this place! I am italian and went there with lots of good expectations because I have read good reviews about the food and about the welcoming and warm feeling service. I have to say that our experience has been very very disappointing! The service is terrible and very slow even if there a a few tables to serve. We were overchanged twice, so be carefull when you read the bill! The meat that we ordered was cold and not very meaty but still very expensive. The antipasti was nice but while we were eating it, the waiter decided to clear the table for the next course so even if we paid all the antipasti we ate just half of it. we got our drink after the antipast so absolutely very disorganised. The food is OK but there are so many other nice italian place in London to go to that I wouldn't reccommend this place at all!

Great Food!!
I stumbled across this restaurant by chance and was tempted inside by the reviews posted in the window.

There was a warm welcome and a lovely feel to the small but intimate interior.
