We always have such a fabulous time at Ombra. This comes down to the excellent food, great choice of wine, exceptionally friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Since our wedding reception/lunch back in May, we have been back on a number of occasions and we have...More

Great location, relaxed atmosphere. Best fresh homemade pasta and arancini. If it's sunny sit outside. Loved the wine list too.

We used to be regulars, but not anymore. The sized of the portions shrank dramatically, while the service is now scatty, and often rude. Prices are not justified when they charge you 16.5 quid for a tiny plate of pasta which is not even that...More

Visited Ombra with a few flat mates and I have to say they have a great friendly/family atmosphere, with some classic Italian dishes that I much enjoyed. What I enjoyed even more was that I got more food on my plate than I anticipated which...More

Description
Ombra is a take on a Venetian bacaro - we're a Hackney canalside joint you can visit regularly for a drink and a bite without spending a fortune. Ombra - Venetian slang for a glass of wine - actually means shade. It dates from the days when the merchants in Piazza St Marco sold their wine by the glass and would follow the shadow of the Campanile to keep their wares cool. Our kitchen serves the best seasonal produce from Italy and selected British farmers. We keep it fresh and simple. Like any Italian osteria our menu changes daily with a strong focus on homemade pasta, which we make in the restaurant every day.
