Italian Restaurant Holloway Road

Authentic Italian food for the whole family

Fresh homemade pasta & wood fired pizza

Lamezia is a traditional Italian family run restaurant situated on Holloway Road, North London. At Lamezia we are passionate about creating delicious dishes and using fresh quality ingredients. All of our ingredients are lovingly prepared on the premises.

We serve a wide range of dishes, including homemade pasta, starters, pizza and delicious desserts. 

At Lamezia, our day starts early. With the preparation of our delicious breads including sourdough. We also have a range of colourful vegetarian flavours such as charcoal, spinach & loads more. These flavours change daily!

Our fresh pasta is also made on site. From tagliatelle to filled ravioli. The fresh pasta menu changes seasonally with various delicious fillings - including vegan & gluten free options.

Our Neapolitan style pizza dough is double fermented for 72 hours and our new wood-fired oven helps create very light and highly digestible delicious pizzas! There are lots of vegetarian and meaty options, however if you are vegan, why not swap for our new Vegan mozzarella. 

We also offer an extensive wine list of carefully selected Italian wines to suit all tastes. Chosen for their unique quality and appeal. 

Being a family run restaurant and having small children ourselves, we love welcoming families. Our dedicated Bambino’s menu has been voted “the best kids menu we have ever seen” by Little London Magazine.

Rude staff, they are advertise as showing the football matches and then act shocked when asking the staff about it. Location outdated, and unfriendly.

Delicious pizza, fresh from a very good oven, as evidenced by the char marks. Pizza was nice and salty. The chili oil is incredible! (Wish they sold bottled chili oil)Definitely recommend getting a pizza here. Didn’t try the pasta but looked really good too

We had dinner on a Thursday without a reservation, and ordered the pain nostro (bread with chili oil, balsamic vinegar and olive oil), the spicy carbonara and the tiramisu.The food was incredible - it wasn't overly heavy, tasted wonderful and left us wanting more.Pricing was also decent - all this for under 40£.The staff and decor were also highlights - everyone was really warm and there seemed to be a lot of regulars and that might include us as well!

A place where you can get a good classic carbonara is a good place. The service from Alessia was very good.

Great Italian restaurant with lovely dishes and very fresh food. Desserts are delicious too. All the dishes were packed with very very tasty flavours and unique. The chilli oil was not good at all but the fresh chillies were nice. The drinks were good too but the peroni wasn't as strong and the glasses were dirty inside some of them. Overall a great experience and enjoyable.

Best Italian restaurant in London. The truffle pasta is simply outstanding. I would definitely recommend eating here if you’re in the area. The desserts are mind blowing also!

Decent spot to hop in before an arsenal match. The service was quick and the pizza was decent. Neopolitan style pizza but enjoyed that the toppings didn't slide off or create a puddle of mush when eating. Would recommend if looking to get some solid food in the system before a match
19:49 05 Mar 23
Nice atmosphere. The restaurant feels very homely. Pizza was very tasty. 4* because we found pizzas a bit too ‘bready’ and we personally prefer the neapolitana style pizzas.

What a lovely little restaurant, the owners where really chatty and friendly.The food was really nice, I had meatballs for starters which just melted in my mouth ( mouth is watering as I'm writing this). For the mains I had a pizza with spicy Italian sausage (cannot remember what it was called) which was tasty and filling.Will definitely be going back.I didn't pay the bill so can't comment on cost.

Brilliant family run restaurant. Came on a Friday evening and service and food was both fantastic. All staff were very friendly & smiley and all food was delivered quickly. Vegan pizza was amazing. Limoncello made by Mama was a lovely end to the meal 🙂

This place, a small family business, since a few weeks now, is my only Italian love in London!The food is always fresh and the taste is so rich and genuine.I have been trying, in 10 years living in London, several Italian restaurants but this is by far the most authentic one!!!For the readers, I am from Napoli and I must admit that I am very fussy when it comes to food.Well deserved guys

We were positively surprised by the great food they have! We usually prefer their neighbours and never tried Lamezia but the pizza is very tasteful and the ingredients are fresh and tasty. We also had the lasagna which was amazingly juicy and perfectly cooked….definitely is going to be the first option now kn!!!
20:04 21 Aug 22
It is honestly a surprise! It is a family run business, very cordial staff and nice atmosphere. Loved the Italian songs in the background and all the typical pictures on the wall. Food is great and the price is very honest and affordable. The size of the Portions is perfect as well. Definitely recommend it. We paid 22£ each for a lot of food.

Excellent family run Italian restaurant. Exquisite food served promptly. Everything we tried was really good, from calamari, to the meatballs, the pisci al tartufo, gamberoni etc.Don't miss it if you enjoy Italian food. Tip: kids are well welcomed so extra thumbs up for this restaurant.

Pretty much the best Italian restaurant you can get in London. The staff are absolute stars, food is so delicious (tripled approved by my Italian friends), with reasonably-prices cocktails, they make a MEAN aperol spritz… And you can purchase some of their homemade chocolate liquor (yes: it’s as good as it sounds). 1000% recommend.

One of our favourite restaurants in Holloway road. Pizza def tastes better than the neighbour! I was too greedy and asked for a large pasta portion 😅

As a frequent patron whose husband hails from Lamezia Terma in Italy, and after which this restaurant is named, I'm delighted to attest to the quality and authenticity of this amazing little establishment. Rustic and intimate with attentive staff who make you feel like visiting family, the food is exactly what you would expect it to taste like on the continent. Fresh ingredients, herbs and spices, an original and creative menu to suit all, whether it be a pasta dish or pizza,I promise you will have a memorable, Italian experience x

Myself, my dad and my little boy had the most wonderful lunch and today at Lamezia, a lovely family run restaurant with the most delicious food. They couldn’t have done more to ensure we felt comfortable and enjoyed our visit. I couldn’t recommend them more highly. Can’t wait to visit again.

One of the best Italian restaurants I came across in London!! Would highly recommend coming here to eat fresh pasta, pizza, seafood, and everything else that’s authentically Italian👑 I cannot wait to be back!! Next time I’ll make sure to leave some room for dessert as the dessert menu looks as amazing👌🏼
