2. Norma Italian restaurant in Fitzrovia 8 Charlotte Street - W1T
2021 Review: Following the success of The Game Bird, the team from The Stafford London took the bold step of opening this independent non-hotel restaurant, in a Fitzrovia townhouse, in September 2019. The cooking, overseen by the Salt Yard’s ex-culinary director, Ben Tish, is ‘inspired by the culture of Sicily, with particular emphasis on the Moorish influences on the island’s cuisine’; a crudo (raw) bar is also a feature.
3. Vasco & Piero’s Pavilion Italian restaurant in Soho 11 D'Arblay Street - W1F
2021 Review: “Pleasingly old-fashioned in style and cooking”, this long-serving traditional Soho Italian keeps its many regulars happy with “a simple Umbrian menu, done well”, including “excellent home-made pasta”. There’s a “comfortable and friendly ambience, and the occasional luvvie dining before his/her show”. Top Tip – “the chef will do zabaglione at the end if the kitchen isn’t too busy – a treat!”.
4. Icco Pizza Italian restaurant in Fitzrovia 46 Goodge St - W1
2021 Review: There are “no frills at all” at this 21-year veteran pizza-joint in Goodge Street (founded in 1991), with a branch in Camden Town – “but the fact that you can sit down with a tasty thin-crust pizza in central London for these prices (£3.95 for a Marinara) is well worth the lack of ambience”.
5. Salt Yard Spanish restaurant in Fitzrovia 54 Goodge St - W1
2021 Review: This pioneer of Spanish and Italian small-plates dining near Goodge Street station is “still going strong after so many years for a very good reason” – “interesting and yummy dishes plus good wine”. Ratings have remained solid since the whole group (including siblings Dehesa, Opera Tavern and Ember Yard) was taken over late last year by Urban Pubs & Bars from Simon Mullins and Sanja Moy, who opened Salt Yard in 2005. There’s even been a “big improvement in the ambience of the basement”. Top Menu Tip – “deep fried courgette flowers with honey: the cheesy goodness within marries perfectly with the honey sweetness drizzled over… just wow!”
6. Rossopomodoro, John Lewis Italian restaurant in Oxford Circus 300 Oxford St - W1
2021 Review: “Neapolitan influences are evident in the choice of ingredients, and the wood-burning oven makes for good, chewy, charred crusts, unlike most high-street pizzas” – so say fans of this global chain, whose HQ is indeed in Naples. Not everyone is impressed, though, and ratings are dragged down by those who feel it’s merely an “everyday” choice: “OK for a bog-standard group, but not great”.
7. Circolo Popolare Italian restaurant in Westminster 40 Rathbone Square - W1T
2021 Review: Hot on the heels of launching smash-hit Gloria, the Big Mamma Group opened this even-more-ambitious follow-up – a larger (280-seat), Sicilian in Fitzrovia – in June 2019. Early press reports say they’ve absolutely nailed it for a second time, with their trademark maximalist pizzazz, which here incorporates an interior complete with spirit bottles lining the walls, festoons of foliage and twinkly fairy lights; and a pun-tastic menu of pizza by the metre.
