Luce e Limoni is an authentic Sicilian restaurant, offering a taste of Southern Italy in the heart of London. Situated on the iconic Chancery Lane, the restaurant's concept pays homage to  Fabrizio Zafarana, owner and head chef's, native home in Sicily. 

Sicily is known and loved for the vibrant mix of cultures which influence its cuisine, from the freshest seafood and classic Italian dishes, to connections with Jewish, Arabian and Greek cuisines, too. 

Kick things off with a traditional aperitivo such as Campari or Aperol Spritz, served alongside home made bread with Sicilian extra virgin olive oil. For starters, we like the sound of grilled stuffed squid with ricotta and lemon zest with chorizo, capers and cherry tomato sauce, or perhaps the burrata with Sicilian aubergine caponata and basil dressing.

Homemade pastas are a crowd-pleaser, accentuated with toppings like crab meat, mushrooms and cherry tomato sauce, as well as veal and mozzarella tortellini with butter and sage, cherry tomato confit and truffle oil. If a main course is your preferred central dish, try the pan fried seabass fillet with asparagus, or the prime beef fillet with Marsala reduction and fresh rosemary.

For dessert, it has to be home made tiramisu, a traditional ricotta cheese ‘cannoli’ with pistachio and chocolate bits, or a chocolate grand marnier mousse with orange candied peels. Delicious!

To complement your meal, the team have hand-sourced a curated selection of Italian wines, mainly hailing from their home island of Sicily. Be sure to chat to your server about the best pairing for your meal. 

Plus, if you're looking for somewhere to host a special event, Luce e Limoni welcomes private bookings. For smaller groups, the private dining room has a capacity of 11 people, but it's also possible to hire out part of the restaurant, or take over the whole place.

Friend family business
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.

Lovely family run restaurant.
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

Perfect Italian
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.

Absolutely delicious food!
I strongly recommend this authentic Italian place to all food lovers. I have already been a number of times and every time the chef never fails to impress. Beautiful ambience, so you can relax and enjoy with a glass of wine, after a long day at work. The service is immaculate and friendly. I would definitely go back again and again and would recommend if anyone loves delicious Italian food, this is the place to try.

Best Sicilian food in London!
It was a truly amazing experience having lunch at Luce e Limoni. Everything from the quality of the food (homemade pasta and bread) to the service and ambience was incredible. My boyfriend and I liked it so much we came for dinner the next day! Enjoy:)
