Brilliant in every respect from the location (Sicilian Avenue is worth a visit just for the experience and the local cafes and pubs - a lot packed into a small area of London) to the quality of staff, food, aura, experience, decor and general feeling...More

It’s been a long time since I have had such a terrible dining experience in London! Staff were kind but the food and restaurant were dire. Am amazed the toilets hadn’t been condemned! Shame.

This restaurant does more than pasta. I had veal scaloppini and my wife had chicken. Garlic bread was good. Service was attentive. Bottled Italian beer. We got to our theatre on time. They also had outside tables, which some may like. No problem here.

We are local and tried this place. Lasagne was burned, deep fried mozzarella was over done and gamberoni e zucchini was over loaded with garlic. We knew this place was a likely tourist trap visit but gave it a go. The main glaringly obvious problem...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House

Spaghetti House Sicilian Avenue a hidden gem in Bloomsbury. Al fresco tables on this pedestrian walk are highly sought after for warm days & balmy evenings, a perfect place to enjoy a meal & a glass of wine. In winter the open kitchen & the intimate dining areas are cosy & atmospheric. The quality of the food is always superb & the staff are friendly & informative. We believe in quality & for this reason we source the best & freshest ingredients & we cook to order. If you fancy something that is not on the menu, please do ask, we will always do our best to serve you your fancy!
