Off the cuff lunch, never been in the area before and gave it a try. Massively exceeded expectations. A proper little trattoria with friendly service but more importantly superb food. Very pleased we popped in. Well done Il Guscio!
Had a midweek date night at this lovely friendly Italian. Great service, good cocktails (cheap for London) and delicious fresh food. I'm vegan but there were at least a couple of dishes for me, and my partner (omnivore with a big appetite) loved his meal...More

I went with a group of friends last night and had a great time. It is a small local restaurant with home cooked Sardinian food, which I had not had before. The salads were plentiful and the roasted vegetables fresh and delicious, my swordfish with...More
It has been my favourite little Italian for years and only now getting round to leaving a review. Beautiful quaint Italian with authentic Sicilian food. Changing specials and very good pizza menu. Try the special Sicilian Red and home made meatballs. So so good!
