Pasta Brown

About Pasta Brown

For nearly 50 years, the Brown family has been feeding hungry Londoners in Covent Garden and the surrounding area, and they really know what they’re about. This, their newest restaurant, couldn’t be more central as it is set directly opposite the Royal Opera House on Bow Street, right in the heart of theatreland. The decor is modern, warm, and welcoming with bright modern art on the neutral walls and a relaxed atmosphere that makes it easy to return again and again. Forget the big names, Pasta Brown is some people’s favourite restaurant in the capital. The menu includes all the casual Italian dishes you love: a wide range of starters, including bruschetta, avocado prawns, three-colour salad, many pastas, lasagne, a plethora of pizzas, chicken dishes, and tiramisu and banoffee pie, among other desserts. Italian wines, French water, great coffees, friendly service.
