Nearby
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Description
With a characteristic setting inside the Old Truman Brewery in London's East End, Al Volo Italian restaurant offers tasty regional cuisine, complemented by home-made pasta. Although modern in design, the restaurant's atmosphere is homely and welcoming. East End restaurants tend to offer very good value for money and Al Volo is no exception. Whether you choose to eat indoors or on the summer terrace, you can choose from a variety of regional dishes, personally chosen by chef Antonio Tonelli and his team to represent some of the top cuisine from various regions of Italy. Just a short walk from the restaurant, Old Spitalfields Market is a great place to work up an appetite before your meal or take a leisurely stroll afterwards. 4 Tube stations are also within reach of Al Volo, making it easy accessible, so if you are looking for Italian restaurants in London, this contemporary spot makes a great choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner. On Sunday afternoons (from 3pm) you could also join London's original Spritz party to get you in the mood for your meal!
