Opting for authentic and traditional Italian décor, there's a marvellous feel about Spaghetti House. The amicable staff cater to your every need and generate a welcoming atmosphere. After settling down and ordering our drinks, we were immediately offered water for the table and a small bowl of delicious spiced beans.
Maia visited the branch of Spaghetti House in Goodge Street.

We ordered two starters from the a la carte menu – the Bruschetta and the Capresino. Both were incredibly light (just the thing you want from a starter), consisting of vine tomatoes, fresh basil, oregano and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, resting on rustic bread for the Bruschetta, or topped with bufala mozzarella for the Capresino. Spiced to perfection, they really hit the spot.
With the gentle buzz of chatter and the mood music drifting us off into a relaxed state, we were ready for the main course.
The Americana piccante, made from fresh dough and topped with mouth-watering pepperoni sausage and mozzarella was sensational, and the Tagliatelle al pesto – fresh egg pasta, home-made pesto and crushed pine nuts, garnished with olive oil and a sprinkle of parmesan – was a wonderful mix of flavours and incredibly satisfying.
Finally, our favourite course (and many others, I presume) was upon us. Settling on the Coppa nostra and the Crème caramel, we couldn’t have been more impressed. The vanilla and chocolate ice cream was heavenly and the custard and caramel layers well complimented each other, strong and creamy, albeit again quite light.
The service throughout was faultless, with friendly and approachable staff dishing out meals in the blink of an eye.
Whether you’re a true-blue meat-eater, or have turned to a more alternative Vegetarian/Vegan lifestyle, Spaghetti House caters for all.
Don’t be fooled by the name. Pasta isn’t their only speciality.
Spaghetti House will celebrate its 60th birthday by giving diners the chance to enjoy its two most iconic dishes at 1955 prices.
On September 6 all its restaurants will be offering Spaghetti Bolognese and Spaghetti Pomodoro for just 60p.
