SquareMeal Review of Luce e Limoni

The evocative citrusy name immediately conjures up thoughts of Sicily – not surprising, since Luce e Limoni is intended as a heartfelt homage to chef/proprietor Fabrizio Zafarana’s native island. His menu taps into the traditions of Sicilian cooking with all its historic trading influences and sunny flavours – from dried broad bean soup with spicy squid, or wind-dried tuna ‘prosciutto’ with artichokes and olives, to bucatini with sardines, or Sicilian sausage and potato tortellini with tomato, basil and spicy sprouting broccoli. Mains also stay true to Fabrizio’s roots (think grilled tuna with peperonata ‘agrodolce’, or slow-roast belly pork with lentils and Marsala reduction), and desserts such as cassata, cannoli or pistachio semifreddo with Sicilian melon jelly continue the theme. To drink, check out the wines from the island’s artisan producers.

True Italian hospitality is the name of the game at this nicely done Grays Inn Road eatery, but it’s the sun-infused flavours of the food that really does the talking. The private room in the basement seats 20 comfortably. Alternatively, take a long table in the ground-floor restaurant.

This is a very sweet, quaint little restaurant with a lovely family feel to it. It's warm and cosy, and the deco is beautiful. The staff are extremely friendly, attentive, and very good at giving some good recommendations. We ordered two fish dishes which arrived promptly. The fish was seasoned with some delicious flavours, and the portion sizes were just right. We ordered their traditional Italian dessert which was recommended to us, and it went down a treat. Not something we would have normally ordered, but it was fun to try out something traditional.

We booked an evening meal here last Wednesday, on the strength of the excellent reviews, both on this website and Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is beautifully appointed. Lovely banquet sesting. There is a good ambience in this place. It is a warm and cosy family run restaurant. The staff are attentive and well organised. The unusual starters and main courses are cooked to perfection. We shared a Frito Misto starter, which was ample for two of us. We were pleased we didn't have one each. We both had the swordfish main course which was delicious. The chocolate fondant hot dessert was well worth the wait, it was cooked to perfection especially for us. We had a glass of Sicilian wine each which was equally as good. In all I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. There were a number of regular customers who were dining, so always a good sign

I had a great time at Luce e Limoni. The ambiance is relaxed and the hosts attentive and kind. The food was great and came in generous servings. I do not need to put it in many words – this place is simply great. Do not be afraid to visit this Italian oasis in the midst of London.
