One of the best Italian restaurants, if not the best, in north London. Everything is fresh and made in house, the pasta, the bread, etc. quality, quantity and price are outstanding.

We visited on a Friday evening, the food served was pleasant but nothing outstanding, portion sizes are fairly small, menu choices limited, staff were attentive and friendly. We took advantage of the web offer of starter and main for £16.50 and wouldn't have wanted to pay any more. Unfortunately, this is only a small restaurant and a larger party arrived... More

This was my second visit to 500, both for personal or family celebrations and once again the food was excellent if expensive for the area but the service was truly unacceptable. Two waiting staff and a washer up on a very busy pre Christmas evening was not enough and staff struggled to cope. When I pointed this out to the... More

This Sardinian restaurant opened several years ago in my neighbourhood. Packed most nights and everyone delighted to have a family run place instead of a chain or franchise. However, things have changed. We had incredibly overpriced starters which were not very impressive and quite mediocre food. The price was high and we are used to Islington prices but this was...

Searched for a brick oven pizza restaurant near Edgware and came across 500 degrees, a short walk away. A nice selection of hand made, wood fired pizzas on the menu and a simple set of wine by the glass options. There were also several starters of the day, but we opted for wine and pizza. We ordered 3: Diavola, Buffala,... More

We took the whole restaurant for a party on a Saturday night. Our experience, and the feedback from all our guests, was nothing short of adulatory. Giorgio, Mario and all their colleagues, could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The food is always excellent at 500 and to deliver that level of quality to a party of over 30... More

Every visit to 500 is a pleasure. Their pasta is perfect, dishes are always interesting and tasty, deciding what to order is always a battle as everything looks (and turns out) good. Service is always relaxed and attentive. I can't fault 500, good for meeting up friends, an impromptu dinner or a romantic meal.

Eight of us had a pleasant evening here though somehow the bill came to £80 each. Must have been the wine which is a tad over priced for Archway but other than that I would recommend.

We took over the restaurant for a family celebration and were treated to some wonderfully tasty food. My partner really enjoyed his lamb dish and I loved the sea bass I chose. The starter platter had a great selection of anti-pasti, meats and olives. The staff were friendly and relaxed which really helped us enjoy our evening.

Had lunch on a Sunday afternoon a couple weeks ago and loved it. We came fairly early (12:30) and were the only customers, but we still go very good service from two very nice waiters. One was new and was still working on his English but he was charming none the less and asked his colleague to step in when... More
