I went to try Da Aldo and found the place closed with a notice saying it was for refurbishment. I went back several times over the last couple of months. No work or changes had been done, so I'm assuming the closure is permanent.

Surly service, waiter quite rude to table next to us. Didn't get the special we ordered but something else, which we settled for as short of time. Not great quality...could have done much better ourselves. Veal was very overcooked, spag/bol side dish (!!) was OK...More

This small Italian restaurant is easily missed or passed by, but please don't be put off by its unassuming and basic outside appearance. Even, once you walk through the doors, don't let the rather cramped dated and kitsch decor put you off. The food is...More

I've lived in London my whole life and Soho is one of the best spots for trying out nice independent places with good food and good value. Unfortunately after trying this place for the first time I ended up feeling a bit resentful that I...More

The food tasted good and the welcome was warm. The minestrone was very poor, watery vegetable soup. The main courses had far too much salt in. The sea food risotto was in a very runny sauce with chilli flakes making it difficult to taste the...More

You don't get many places in Soho like this anymore. Checked tableclothes, That's Amore playing in the background and oil lamps on the tables. Tasty simple Italian food for very reasonable prices - you can get a starter, main course and ice cream for £12....More
