Summary

Down a cute alley in St James’s, a “great little family-run Italian” that’s “well worth seeking out” in this über-pricey part of town – “you are always looked after” and the Sicilian cooking is “thoroughly enjoyable”.

Summary

“Tucked away” in a St James’s alleyway, this “cheery” Sicilian stalwart is particularly buoyed up by its “always lively” service, but the “traditional” fare is “consistently good” too.

Summary

Hidden away in a pedestrian lane, this “good, local and friendly” Sicilian is an oddity in the heart of St James’s; the worst anyone can say about it is that it makes a “decent fallback”.
