Nothing seems to satisfy quite like a heaped bowl of pasta or a perfectly cheesy, expertly baked pizza. London’s Luce e Limoni understand that Italian cuisine is often looked at as a comfort food, and that’s why they make sure that each and every one of their dishes is flavourful, large, and most importantly, made from the heart. Focusing especially on the cuisine of the Sicilian kitchen, this charming restaurant on Bloomsbury’s Gray’s Inn Road is committed to serving guests the best of the best.
Owner Fabrizio Zafarana opened up Luce e Limoni to demonstrate his love for his homeland by sharing its cuisine with London locals. Hailing from Sicily, Zafarana puts heart and soul into every aspect of the restaurant, from its lovely interior, complete with opulent chandeliers and stylish place settings, to the smiling servers, who are as passionate about Sicilian cuisine as the owner himself. Located in a chic area of Bloomsbury, close the the Charles Dickens Museum and Russell Square tube station, Luce e Limoni on Gray’s Inn Road is an elegant restaurant, perfect for lunch or dinner.
Because Sicily is known for putting an emphasis on seafood, we recommend trying one of the restaurant’s fish dishes when visiting. Try the baked swordfish loin in breadcrumbs cooked with herbs and pecorino cheese, or go for the whole roasted sea bream served alongside orange and fresh mint salad. Looking to indulge in some comfort food? Have a look at the pastas – mains like the half lobster spaghetti, pumpkin gnocchi with pistachio sauce, and the basil ravioli with ricotta and sea urchins are always crowd pleasers. Open for lunch and dinner every day except Sunday, we recommend making a reservation in advance for Luce e Limoni in London’s Bloomsbury.
Excellent home style cooking from Sicily, without being the common red sauce variety. If you are looking for that go elsewhere. The food is delicious and well presented. The staff is attentive and courteous. You are always made to feel at home. Couldn't recommend them more.
Beautiful atmosphere and well trained waiter and waitress. The food is magnificent and you get your money's worth. My woman loved it and will definitely visit them again
