We have been La Pergola last night as a family. It looks like an authentic Italian restaurant from outside. Staff are overall helpful but I think the issues comes with the owner and chef who is not good at all. Couple of things which put us off from this restaurant:
1-service is too slow.
2-My wife ordered vegetarian risotto but she was served basmati rice with vegetable yet they confirmed that this is risotto. What a disaster! I can eat almost anything but even I couldn't work on that dish. Most likely they ran out of risotto rice and instead they cooked rice with vegetable and served us assuming that we were alright with that being non-Italian!!!
3- one of the waitress served us was lovely but can't speak English at all and it was like pulling a teeth to complete the order given that my wife is Celiac and check some of our orders would certainly be gluten free.
4-this restaurant is a member of "taste London" so it's 2 for 1. However our lovely waitress was unaware of that and I had to explain to her with a great English conversation! Eventually they discounted risotto which was left uneaten anyway.
5- I ordered a glass of red house wine. Guess what they have charged £ 7.95...it was a smooth nice wine yet I would have buy a bottle for that price!
Overall it was a bad experience and I wouldn't recommend anyone to go this restaurant again however we haven't tried pizzas and they may be all right with your own risk...
