With a name such as this, diners at the Piccolo Diavolo restaurant can be assured of an authentic Italian experience. Indeed, short of zipping past you on a moped while gesticulating furiously before heading home to mama with its washing, the restaurant could not be more Italian: the décor is graceful and operatic, the staff is friendly and sultry, the atmosphere is imbued with classical music and the aromas that emanate from the kitchen could have been transported directly from a Rome piazza.
You are, however, not in Italy at all, but rather in the vibrant cultural heart of London's Soho, making Piccolo Diavolo a firm favourite among tourists and local workers and residents. Its location also makes it a great option for pre and post theatre meals, while the restaurant is also open everyday for lunch too.
Serving authentic Italian food at an affordable price, the Piccolo Diavolo restaurant is the ideal choice for couples seeking a romantic and memorable meal, and is also perfect for social or business gatherings of all sizes and for all occasions. All the classic Italian staples are present on the menu, while there are also a few house specials worthy of note, including the shelled prawns salad starter, the porcini mushrooms starter, the fried whitebait, the deep-fried chicken kiev, the rolled veal escalope with ham and cheese, and the Julienne of beef fillet in stroganof sauces. Wash all this down with one of the excellent Italian wines from the list, and you have yourself a fantastic meal.
