Polpo in Soho for authentic Venetian food


This bàcaro (that's a humble Venetian restaurant serving simple grub, FYI) serves delicious meatballs, fish and a to-die-for Nutella pizetta for dessert. Get there early to avoid long queues.

Traditional home cooked Italian favourites at Zucca


This modern, contemporary restaurant serves food that might be found on an old-school Italian mama's table. The menu changes daily, but you'll have a choice of antipasti, pasta, secondi and dessert. Yum.

Regional specialities and seasonal ingredients at Bocca di Lupo


The menu of this well-established foodie destination tells you which region of Italy your dish originated in. We love the blood orange, red onion and oregano salad.

Assaggi for Sicilian braised meat and steak


The small but perfectly formed Assaggi restaurant above a bustling bar boasts a menu entirely in Italian, lovingly presented by the maitre d'. Think fresh king scallops, pork, rabbit, duck and cuttlefish.
