Opened by a former chef at pasta favourites Bancone and Tavolino, there was little doubt that Noci would fit into Islington Green very well. The roomy restaurant has a decent buzz and it does, of course, focus on handmade pasta. This is what you come here for and this is what you should order. The pesto and crispy pancetta ziti will put all your memories of fingering jars of Sacla to shame, while the brown butter cacio e pepe is something we could shovel for the rest of eternity. You can take or leave the sharing plates, as everyone knows what the star of the show is here.
