One of those rare central London gems, Il Castelletto is the classic Italian restaurant one always dreams of stumbling across on a jaunt across the city, taking in sights such as the British Museum and the garden squares of Bloomsbury. Tucked down Bury Place, just moments from Holborn tube station, this little slice of Mediterranean charm does indeed boast a view out over the venerable museum, granting a certain and entirely appropriate neoclassical grandeur to proceedings. The bill will be far from high here, however – despite the restaurant’s central location you can enjoy authentic Italian dishes like saltimbocca alla Romana and signature seafood options like the Sicilian-style grilled river trout, plus a considered selection of wines, at excellent prices.

Lovely Italian venue near British Museum for a very reasonably priced lunch. The 3 of us went for the set lunch 2-course menu which included a glass of wine - delicious food - attentive service and great ambiance in a family run ristorante. Well recommended and will be back!
the lunch was outstanding and the service was more than considerate. We certainly will add this to our list of favorite places. As USA nationals we were pleasantly surprised with the service and kindness of the staff.
