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.
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.
Lovely, absolutely lovely good quality tasty food, ambience, friendly, value for money, quaint. Small and beautiful, can’t wait to visit again. Thanks very much Well worth a visit, book in advance! Keith
The food was delicious and the portion sizes were generous; it was a bargain, 3 courses on Wowcher for £9.99! This is a lovely little restaurant in a convenient area.
Excellent small Italian restaurant with traditional dishes. A favourite when we stay in Bloomsbury. Very good pasta dishes and desserts and close to the British museum. Highly recommended.
Very nice fish dishes and food overall very good. Staff friendly. Tables were a bit small for 4 people but we got an additional table. For a restaurant so close to a big torurist destination (British Museum) this is s very good option for lunch or dinner.
A friendly and relaxing place to have lunch with friends. Plenty of choices on the menu, we were all happy with the food and wine, also the service was friendly. Very convenient for the British Museum. We had the 2 course set menu, great value. Would recommend.
The restaurant was lovely and cosy. The location was great; just near the British musuem yet not too far from tottenham court road stations. It is one of the best italians I have been to. Generous portion of fish in the risotto
I have booked a meal with Groupon for a three course meal for £19.95 which had a lot of choice on the menu The sauce was a bit salty but overall worth the money
Lovely meal before theatre visit Staff very helpful and catered well for a special diet We will return another time and enjoy our time in London
Unfortunately, I can't comment on the food as I didn't get a chance to taste it. As I had booked via quandoo but had I voucher I was told I couldn't have the table I booked, even though I was seated at it with my coat off. Rather we had to suffer the humiliation of putting our coats back on and leaving. Whilst I concede I made a mistake, the table was still booked, the restaurant was by no means full so I thought the manager would be more customer focused and forward thinking. Had he let me stay I may have liked it and returned again and again, particularly as it is local to me, as it is I will never set foot in the place, and with such a poor display of customer service wouldn't recommend anyone else does either
