Handmade pasta restaurants are ten a penny in London these days and, like free wifi, they aren’t all reliable. But Legare is. It’s a small, simple, and Ikea-ish space in Tower Bridge making 8/10 chewy oriecchette with lardons and breadcrumbs, and a bowl of gnocchi with mushrooms that, if it were the 90s, we’d make a mixtape illustrated with felt-tipped hearts for. Pasta only makes up a little of the menu though, and while things like citrus salad or stracciatella with sobrasada are perfectly simple and tasty, the antipasti won’t blow you away. That doesn’t really matter though, as Legare is a restaurant that confidently supports your day or night, rather than making it. And when you’re catching up with mates or looking for a lowkey date night, that’s exactly what you need.
