About Il Cucciolo Restaurant

Finding great Italian cuisine in London is easy, but for the best of the best, you’ll have to go to Il Cucciolo on Old Compton Street. This delightful Italian restaurant is perfect for bringing the whole family together with its friendly atmosphere, and their home-style Italian dishes are second to none, with highlights including the penne arrabiata, homemade gnocchi gorgonzola, and the branzino al balsamico (seabass fillet in balsamic and olive oil) taking centre stage. Vegetarian? Be sure to try the spaghetti melanzane with aubergine and tomato sauce, a dish that has meat-eaters and herbivores both can agree on. There’s much more to experience at Il Cucciolo, so take the tube down to Tottenham Court Road or Covent Garden stations and make your way over to this Soho hotspot.

Visited this restaurant prior to a performance at the Donmar Warehouse. This is a small intimate restaurant with excellent food and fantastic service all at a reasonable price.

Lovely small, friendly restaurant that serves great food. Due to a points failure on the DLR we were running quite late but thankfully the restaurant held our table for us. The service was quick, efficient & courteous & the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
