Passo is a huge new Italian restaurant next to the Old Street roundabout and you’ll instantly like the space when you step in - it’s spacious and beautifully designed. It’s a place we can see ourselves having a really lovely casual dinner with mates or a low key birthday meal. The food, however, is less impressive - stick to the burrata and a simple pizza and you won’t be disappointed, but don’t expect to be overly impressed.
