Popped in for lunch with some colleagues. Lunch was reasonably priced considering the area and very nice quality. Service was efficient and understated. Bread basket at the outset was inventive and very tasty. Main course of hake served on a bed of braised lentils was delicious.

We went here again as it's very convenient for pre theatre supper and we were going to the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. As usual this family run restaurant offers great choice, an extensive wine list and best of all really good italian food. Strongly recommended.

Had a bowl of pasta during lunch break, not expecting much. It was much better than same dish in Italy!!! Will go back to try more dishes. Very good service and ambiance too.

My husband and I both had a delicious lunch at Al Duca Restaurant. Upon walking in for the first time we observed it was very simply decorated inside. After that we were very pleased to experience friendly service, a good bargain for our meal by London standards and delicious food. We started out with the vegetable soup which was pureed... More

It isn't often that you can dine in a central London restaurant that retains a residential neighbourliness about it. The menu is solid Italian fare, not overly fussy as some West End restaurants like to to produce. The restaurant has a mixed bag clientele of local "property boys" talking big numbers at lunch time and a good cross section of... More

Visited Al Duca on recommendation from friends who had been here several times, and the experience was well worth it. We were early diners having trekked the streets of London all day and were looking forward to some good italian food on our way back to the hotel. We were not at all disappointed. The ambience and location was lovely,... More

A good choice of food on the main menu and some interesting alternatives on the specials. Its reasonably priced and I liked having the set prices depending... More

Our table was 17:30 and the restaurant was quiet when we arrived (it didn't take long before it was busy) The staff were very friendly. Very good food. Loved the beef carpaccio and the calves liver was gorgeous. Good choice of wines at reasonable prices. Will definitely visit again

Situated close to Piccadilly Circus this restaurant is handy for the West End theatres. Meal prices are on the expensive side, but the quality of the food is very good. The menu is set, with the price dependent upon the number of courses ordered. The service is excellent, staff are friendly, attentive and welcoming. Would certainly recommend this restaurant, and...
