Stuzzico restaurant cafe Paddington West London

SquareMeal Review of Stuzzico

Stuzzico fights its corner manfully in restaurant-heavy Connaught Village, thanks largely to the charisma and boundless enthusiasm of the owners Luca Riccio and Franco de Todaro, who took over ownership of the restaurant in 2014 after having worked there under the previous owner. In its former life, this neighbourhood Italian was a builders’ caff and the tradition of breakfast continues – albeit in the form of eggs Florentine and croissants. Lunch is mainly sandwiches, salads and pasta, but at dinner time a generous trattoria spirit takes over, with plates of asparagus wrapped in Parma ham or chilli and garlic prawn skewers flying out of the kitchen ahead of moreish cannelloni stuffed with salsiccia and spinach, veal T-bone with crushed new potatoes, and light, fruity desserts (zuppa di melone, say). Caring staff manage to be warm and helpful towards everyone. Wine dinners are a special attraction, especially when the truffle season comes around.
