A cheap Italian standby in SoHo

La Porchetta Pollo Bar in LondonLondon's Italian restaurants tend to be either hyper-expensive or dime-a-dozen bland, but Pollo—sometimes called by its full name: La Porchetta Pollo Bar—is a Soho legend for laughably cheap, enormous portions of Italian home-cooking in a convivial, crowded, no-frills atmosphere.

No, it's not a place for a special meal—but it is a good place in London to find a filling and inexpensive meal. Pizzas and pasta start around £5.50/£6.
