Best italian restaurant in London! - Edit

Amazing food and service! The portions were really generous. I tried the tricolor pizza and lasagne and OMG! Can't truly point anything negative. Just wished it was a bit closer to the city center.

Highly recommend - Edit

I had linguini in a creamy sauce with broccoli and sausage, which was very rich and delicious. We (three of us) also shared a bread bowl with homemade dips to start so I was too full for a pudding. :) Good place to go for a special occasion.

Pros: All vegan menu, Tasty, fresh food, Good portion sizes

Cons: A bit noisy but a nice atmosphere, Not cheap

A simple Italian restaurant :) - Edit

I came here expecting the most exquisite flavours &a different types of foods I have never tried before. My expectations were not exceeded but I wasn't disappointed. I opted for a dish with included smoked tofu, cashew mozzarella cheese and capers (which I've learnt - I HATE (nothing to do with the wonderful restaurant)) it simply ruined the flavour of the charcoal crust that I opted for but disregarding that, the pizza was lovely 😊 The starter of raw cheese balls, was absolutely amazing and the banana panna cotta special was also good 👌 Amazing restaurant, with amazing service & LOVELY workers - just that in itself tempts me to come back again 💛 Thank you guys! (and thanks for telling me that I hate capers 😂)

Pros: great customer service , great presentation , friendly atmosphere

Cons: weird combination of pizza toppings , could have air conditioning during the hot days :)

Mixed feelings - Edit

As a starter, I enjoyed the cheese platter - it was excellent.

My main meal, the carbonara was too heavy and too salty as well. I would've preferred to miss it and have had a dessert instead.

Fantastic Pizza - Edit

Huge menu, great choice. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The food was very tasty, and there were a lot of different "cheeses" to choose from.

Pros: Great choice, relaxed atmosphere

Cons: A little pricy

fed by heaven - Edit

We were really excited to try the creative interpretation of the classical Italian kitchen by fed by water and we were totally surprised. We ordered the seven formaggi pizza with all of the seven homemade cheeses and walnuts and the handmade oricchiette with kale cream and olives. Both dishes were out of this world and the best Italian food we've eaten so far. We even got to choose between white, black and green pizza crust and we've both never been asked if we want our pizza soft or crunchy before. Alongside your food you get free three times filtered water which gives the restaurant it's name. It is recommended to make a reservation if you want to go in the evening.

Pros: homemade food, freshly prepared , incredibly delicious

Cons: can get noisy

Well worth the trip - Edit

Finally managed to make it here after hearing so many great things about their food. The reviews I'd been given didn't do the food justice, and the staff were super friendly. It may seem a bit on the pricey side, but the quality of the food is definitely worth it!
I'm just looking for an excuse to go back!

Pros: Everything is Vegan

wonderful restaurant and staff! - Edit

We dined here on a beautiful night, and we're lucky enough to score one of the two tables outside. The food is beautifully designed and delicious! There were far too many things we wanted to try (everything really!) so we got take-away AFTER our gorgeous meal (!) and will come back for sure :)

Vegan Italian - Edit

I've been only once so far - I adore Italian food and have high expectations as my dad makes fantastic Italian food. Anyways, I really wanted to try the lasagna but it was sold out so I tried the carbonara - a dish I never even had before becoming veggie. Portions were big and the pasta dish was nice, although perhaps a bit heavy. I couldn't fit a dessert ;)
The restaurant has a nice, casual atmosphere but the tables are a bit too close IMHO. Still, I'm sure I'll be back sometime if I'm in the area.

Pros: good size portions , friendly staff, good choice of dishes

Cons: bit crammed , location

delicious Italian - Edit

SO GOOD! Spent a while studying this menu as I wanted to try everything. We ate four mains and two desserts between four of us and were stuffed - their main sizes are big so be hungry.

Hard to choose my favourite. We ate the parmigiana (layered eggplant) which tasted divine, classic lasagne, mushroom tagliatelle - amazingly creamy, and the erba Fresca pizza with white dough base. Was happy with everything.

For desserts, check the specials board. I loved the raw fruit cheesefake. Found the tiramisex a bit dense (usually a bit lighter).

Gotta give this place five stars.

Pros: massive menu, good portions, delicious Italian

ridiculously good vegan pizza - Edit

The way this place tastes is unbelievable! I had a pizza with a beetroot cream base (instead of the usual tomato one), and it was heavenly. They have a selection of desserts as well, like 'tiramisex', 'raw carrot cake', 'raw fruit cheese fake'. The pizza I had was £14.95, but worth the money. The desserts are between £6-£9.

Pros: raw desserts, amazing vegan pizzas

Cons: price

Food is usually great but.... - Edit

We had a bit of an argument with the staff - some of the dishes have extremely bitter courgettes in them. The staff insisted that this was how courgettes should taste. Bitter courgettes are not good for you and contain high levels of cucurbitacins - which can cause serious illness. However the management - who we also contacted - replied and insisted that their courgettes should be bitter tasting. It really concerns me that a restaurant - especially a vegan one - should know better.

Pros: Good food

Cons: lack of dietary knowledge

FabFedLondon 02 Jul 2017 - Hi Margo ,

We thought we responded to your email received on 14th May 17 reporting your concern after your visit. We report you the same response here.

Best regards
FED Management

Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention and dropping us an email. We have spoken about this issue with our head chef and had told us the following information;

There are 2 cases in Italy of cucurbitacin intoxication (a substance contained in zucchini, watermelons, etc.) that date back to the 70's and 90's and it was found that they were caused by a single plant that produced an abnormal quantity of cucurbitacin.
The bitter taste from the zucchini is due to the the fact they come from Sicily which has very arid volcanic soil and nothing else. There is also to be considered that our zucchini are baked in the oven with oregano and parsley then sprinkled with oil to the thyme which could be perceived on the palate as bitter. Our courgettes and all other vegetables get prepared daily and are usually sat in our fridge for no more that 36 hours, meaning that they shouldn't have gone off.

We would be more than happy to show you, and talk to you about our products upon your next visit, and we would like to thank you again for mailing us about your concerns.

Excellent Italian style vegan pizza, made by Italians! - Edit

I tried TED for the first time last night. As I can't eat anything with pepper in it, it is usually difficult to avoid it at a restaurant as it is hidden into sauces. FED staff were very helpful in establishing which items were "out" for me, and which ones were safe.

I homed in on a pizza complete with vegan cheese topping and on a 30% hemp base (optional). Great pizza!

I recommend you try this place, very easy to get to and even though there is a 10% service charge it is still very reasonably priced. I had still water (complimentary) to drink and the bill was just under £10 for the pizza and service charge.

Pros: Entirely vegan menu, Quality cooking and great service, Complimentary still water

lovely but bland - Edit

I went to FED by water for dinner and the starter and dessert were delicious but the main I had was very bland. My friend's main was also bland. I had a pasta dish and she had risotto. Would recommend for a coffee and a treat (the coffee cream dessert was delicious) rather than a whole meal.

Pros: large portions, extensive menu, creative dishes

Cons: bland

Generous Portions - Edit

Love a vegan place that isn't stingy with portion sizes!
Unfortunately the first 3 dishes I selected from their (extensive) menus they were out of, which was a downer to start. But the dish I did get was very good. Can't wait to go back to sample more of their menu!
Tables were a bit cramped together, and the one toilet situation not great, and they add service charge to the bill. So there's room for improvement. But overall impressed with this little place :)

Love this place! - Edit

We had a great meal at Fed. It was a bit of a trek to get there, but well worth it. Between the 3 of us, we got 3 starters, and 3 mains, and shared it all, so we got to sample lots. The stand out dish for me was the mushroom risotto, which I could eat all day every day, and all of the cheese on the dishes was nice.

Pros: SO much choice (too much choice?!), Big portions-great for sharing

Cons: Little bit of an obscure location
