London's Best Lobster Pasta

Pasta may often be associated with simple hearty Italian fare, but the traditional dish of Lobster pasta is as refined as you’ll get the stuff. Splash out on the good stuff at one of the below.

Winner:

Bocca di Lupo

Bocca di Lupo are certainly holding their own amongst London’s Italian eateries, and are gracing yet another one of our edits this week. The unrivaled winner of our Lobster Pasta edit, the fishy dish of spaghettini (the irritating name for spaghetti’s slighter sibling) comes served with a half lobster in shell, topped with a scattering of weighty mussels, finished with a sprinkling of fiery ginger.

Sartoria

Smart Savile Row restaurant, Sartoria, serves up refined Italian cuisine in an elegant Milanese environment. The Linguine all’astice, or Lobster Linguine, sums up the food of Sartoria well, traditional, elegant and authentic. Available as both a midi or a main, the nest of al dente home-cooked linguine is coated from tip to toe in a light tomato sauce, tossed with soft-cooked cherry tomatoes and tender chunks of lobster. Prego.

Babbo

The Lobster Tagliolini at Babbo is big. The mound of homemade tagliolini is cooked to perfection and comes glazed in a rich tomato dressing that enhances the flavour of the fleshy white lobster meat on top. Ignore the raised eyebrows and break the fossilised rules teaching against cheese and fish, and request a light grating of Parmigiano Reggiano over the pasta. It’ll knock your socks off.
