A fine, unassuming Italian restaurant made in the image of owner Lorenzo, La Pergola provides locals and visitors to London with some delectable fare in a casual and unpretentious environment. Sat just a stone's throw away from the banks of the River Thames and the Palace Green, La Pergola makes for a pleasant setting in which to stop of and enjoy a spot of relaxation amidst a day of exploration. This is to be further enhanced for tastecard members, who are able to partake in anything found on the La Pergola a la carte menu at a superb price even without having to call in advance. Beginning with one of the tasty starters, such as the flavoursome tomato and garlic drizzled snails, the delectable smoked salmon, Parma ham and sliced avocado pear combo, and the refreshing seasonal melon number, diners are sure to find their appetite sufficiently whetted for what's to come. As expected of an Italian eatery, pasta and pizza are the stars of the show at La Pergola, though there are a number of alternatives available for those looking for something otherwise. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the tomato sauce, garlic and sage adorned scampi, the grilled Scottish fillet steak, and the gratifying cheese omelette. Be it for a casual evening out with the significant other, a catch up with a close friend or a treat for a loved one, all are offered a warm welcome at La Pergola.
