About Il Cucciolo

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.

We had a lovely pre theatre lunch at this beautifully traditional Italian trattoria. My Scaloppa Miilinese was perfectly served and my companion's linguine was, I am told, delicious. Our 5 year old's Marherita pizza was gobbled up and the service and ambience was quiet unobtrusive and family friendly. Prices were par for the area but good value. Very highly reccomended. I'll definitely return.

Great family run restaurant with hearty food and friendly service. We were there for a pre-theatre meal and received excellent attention without being hurried - the staff even sang Happy Birthday to my daughter.

Wonderful authentic Italian food right in the heart of Soho. The seafood risotto and bruschetta were perfect. Friendly, efficient service. We went for lunch and the restaurant wasn’t full but a lovely atmosphere.

Fantastic Italian food in an authentic atmosphere. Staff friendly and actually want to be at work ! Book to avoid waiting as the restaurant is smallish and popular.

The restaurant was fantastic and cannot be faulted. We went at about 6pm on a Saturday and it appeared fully booked - so booking in advance is advisable. Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. The food tasted lovely, and the portions were large. The wine was really nice. Prices are reasonable. We went prior to seeing a show and it set the perfect start to an enjoyable evening.

My wife And I had two courses. There was a bit of a wait.....about 30 minutes between them which made us a little edgy that they had forgotten the second course. However all was well and it eventually. Turned up. Our main courses were veal and the house giant prawn pasta dishes. Both were excellent. Overall a good meal with good service.

One of the best Italian meals that I have ever had and I dine in quite a few. The quality of the food was excellent and the service was really good too. A gem of a place and I believed it is a family ran business. Its a must visit.

Good quality and wholesome Italian food made with fresh ingredients. Had a three course meal for a great value priced or a pre theatre dinner as the restaurant is minutes away from the Prince Edward Theatre. Book early so as not to be disappointed.

A friendly, family run restaurant serving delicious food that is also great value. Centrally located and ideal for pre-theatre meal. No frills but don't let this put you off. You don't want the frills - you just want the lovely home cooked food.

Lovely restaurant with courteous staff, nice décor and pleasant atmosphere. The food is fantastic with an authentic Italian flavour. I had the arrabiata pasta which was wonderful, good chilli kick but not too much, and a sensible portion of pasta.
