“Don’t go if you have a phobia of crowds” and it’s a little “touristy”, but this outpost of the San Carlo group by the Coliseum gets the thumbs-up: it’s “buzzy and fun”; “the great small plates” are “more than competent for a large, high turnover place”; and it has “a super location for pre-theatre meals”.

“Handily situated next to the Coliseum, serving tasty cicchetti” – this London outpost of a national chain within the San Carlo group is worth remembering for a light lunch or pre-theatre bite.

This “fabulous, fun and buzzy” four-year-old next door to the Coliseum, from the national San Carlo group, has won a good following. It specialises in “tasty” cicchetti or Venetian small plates, and provides an “unexpectedly friendly and attractive welcome in the West End”: “ideal for a light lunch” and “good for pre-theatre”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
