Birthday Parties

Our birthday parties have become part of l’artista tradition and are renown throughout North London much like our dishes. -. A typical “L’artista birthday surprise” generally involves the waiting staff parading towards the table; banging and crashing pots and pans with music playing until the “lucky” guest is almost deafened. Everyone – staff and customers included join in, clap, and cheer the birthday guest who is usually pleasantly surprised (if not a little embarrassed).


Group bookings

Here at L’artista we are very welcome and open to all types of private functions. We have celebrated wedding anniversaries, special birthdays, mothers and fathers days, engagements, baby showers, Christmas parties, christenings, first communions, bar mitzvahs, etc… we are hard-pressed to find an event we have not done yet. You are welcome to bring your own birthday cake, balloons, etc. for the occasion, and we will try our best to make the special day as pleasant and memorable as possible. We also hold many corporate lunches and dinners, including Christmas office parties.
