A little ray of Italian sunshine lies in the stunning Mosaic Square in Limehouse. Its name? Maybe you can Figa it out...
A sense of warmth runs throughout the place. Their sparkling hospitality is the first thing you’ll notice; that and the Grecian statues that are dotted about the place. There’s also a magnificent grand piano which gives the restaurant a certain old-fashioned elegance.
With pasta, pizza, risotto, meat and seafood aplenty, you’ll be pouring over the menu a good while. All the classics are there, as more unusual options like a veal dish with parma ham, calves liver with onions and demi-glace, swordfish and monkfish. Whether you stick to what you know or consider yourself an adventurist, La Figa has it all.
The drinks list is somewhat more conventional. Choose from a wide range of wines, popular beers and classic cocktails like the good ol’ Cosmopolitan or Negroni.
