SquareMeal Review of San Carlo Cicchetti Piccadilly



This glamorous mini-chain of old-school Italians has satisfied hungry Londoners for years. The San Carlo group is known for delivering casual but effortlessly elegant all-day dining with great panache. The interiors are shiny with lots of gold and marble, the service is effortlessly charming and there’s little chance of leaving hungry – this place is Italian to the core. Seasonally changing menus feature a run of sharing plates: start with a creamy helping of buratta, served with parma ham and sprinkled with shavings of earthy truffle, before moving on to larger plates including intensely meaty Paccheri pasta stuffed with Tuscan pork sausage, and veal wrapped in parma ham. Continue the fun with a glass of Prosecco or an Aperol spritz, before choosing from the likes of tiramisu and panna cotta from the dessert menu, or if you can’t decide, opt for the dessert tray which serves you a little bit of everything.

Wow, wow and wow. Italian tapas is the best way to describe Cicchetti. I have been on a table for 2 all the way up to 10 and each time the service was superb and all delivered with a smile. Having been a few times, I asked what the knack was and it seems that Carlo and Marcello, (the father and son team who own and run the San Carlo/Cicchetti brand) source the best ingredients and have more than enough staff at any one time. The truffle ravioli is an absolute must and the short rib of beef is not far behind. Always busy with a mix of 'walk-in's' and regulars. Everyone we've ever taken, continues to return of their own volition. Italian food as it should be – superbly cooked and served by smiling Italians. Great location tops off the whole experience. Go try it !

Tapas style small dishes were all very good. Decor was nice but little bit touristy. Service was rushed.
