SquareMeal Review of Ciullõsteria

Bronze Award

Serving a traditional menu of Italian cuisine inspired by Italy's Amalfi coast, this family-run restaurant has been serving pasta- and pizza-crazed Londoners for over 20 years. 

An appealing menu as sun-drenched as the Amalfi coast itself kicks off with antipasti such as deep-fried mozzarella and fresh mussels in a garlic and tomato sauce. Primi piatti include a selection of pasta dishes, from gnocchi with aubergine to a curly pasta with speck, courgettes and egg yolk. Secondi feature beef fillet medallions with mushrooms and sea bass fillet with potatoes and rocket.

If you want something more casual, a pizza menu has all the classics such as quattro formaggi and Napoletana. Like most family-run Italians, Ciullõsteria focuses on a warming and unpretentious experience for its customers.

Bustling Italian with excellent fresh dishes
08 October 2015  
Ciullo is deserving of a good first review! We ate as a group of 4 midweek at an 8pm booking. The place was almost full (though it did thin out after 9pm) and was quite noisy; service was quite rushed to begin with. A plain dining area with tables pretty close together; there are a couple of ancient skis and boots on the wall for 'atmosphere' plus an enormous tube of tomato paste - apparently a souvenir from years back. We ordered largely from the specials page for starters - sardines, scallops and chorizo (nicely spicy), baked eggplant and beef carpaccio; then branzino and veal mains, plus a pasta special with lots of seafood, garlic and chili - as requested. All came out hot and clearly freshly prepared. Wine (all Italian) was reasonably priced; we ordered some Grechetto from central Italy which tasted very good, and was only £26. We ate at our leisure and were out in under 2 hours for £85 per couple; good value for the quality of food offered.
