Places to Party


Radici is Italian for roots, and this relaxed Southern Italian trattoria represents just that for Chef Patron Francesco Mazzei. The food is a tribute to his Calabrian heritage, whilst its Islington location is a nod to his children’s upbringing in the area he has made his London home.

The food is rustic, authentic and made with the very best ingredients, with wonderful Italian wines and cocktails served alongside. The interior has a similar feel, where acclaimed designer David d’Almada has used natural materials to create a light, bright and welcoming space.

Seating up to 120 people, Radici is a perfect venue for private parties or for any London ceremony. Located in the heart of Islington, a borough filled with several beautiful churches, the restaurant is just a short walk from the iconic Islington Town Hall.

The floor-to-ceiling French doors allow light to flood into the restaurant, while the semi-open kitchen allows guests to see what’s going on behind the scenes. The bar area can be used for a drinks reception before your meal or can be transformed into a dance floor.

With a bible of knowledge of the best suppliers for the picture perfect finishing touches, and most importantly one dedicated wedding planner, we can alleviate the stresses of ceremony planning and manage every detail to create memories that will last a lifetime.
