There are lots of good Italian restaurants in London, but there aren’t that many worth travelling too far to get to. Rotorino isn’t a destination, but it’s a really useful restaurant if you’re in and around Dalston. The pastas are tasty enough, and the sauces switch fairly regularly. It’s the kind of place where you can comfortably sit at the bar on your own with a plate of pasta. Plus, Sunday through Friday they offer a two courses for £15 deal.
