FINCHLEY ROAD | NW3
The Italian-founded Tortellini Cup kiosk is located in the O2 Centre on Finchley Road, serving truly speedy and sizeable takeaway pasta with a smile. The food here is truly reminiscent of Northern Italian traditions and you only need to wait around five minutes for a taste.
First you choose your type of pasta or gnocchi: tagliatelle, fusilli, tortellini, wholewheat macaroni, trofie or gramigna, ranging from £5.50 to £7.20. Then select from one of their vegetarian or meaty sauces.
I went for their classic tortellini filled with salty ham and had it covered in a rich and smooth cream and mushroom sauce. Plus the essential sprinkling of parmesan, of course.
If you're going for one of the cheaper pasta options, you could add a £1.90 tigelle (small Northern Italian sandwich from Modena) and still stay within our £8 budget. You can have it filled with parma ham, salami, mortadella or stracchino to make for a tasty side snack.
