Service was wonderful I have to say - staff were attentive and enthusiastic! I ordered a wonderful burrata and focaccia with ‘nduja bruschetta - really enjoyed it; and also had a cod and potato ravioli with a large glass of red. Sad to say, the ravioli was a disappointment. I was sitting next to the kitchen so I could see the Chef take a bag of ravioli out of the freezer (it was not even packed nicely - just a clump of it in a plastic bag - so you can imagine the smells of the freezer and everything else in there absorbing into the already hardened dough). I’m a huge fan of fresh handmade pasta and I made sure to check if it was all handmade and fresh before ordering - which they confirmed before and after my meal. But alas, the taste of the pasta was flat and hard (not in a good al dante way but a stale texture). Could have been really promising if not for the main dish letdown.

Booked a table for my brother's 60th. Lovely evening with staff who couldn't be more pleasant and food that was really excellent. For me the highlight was the dessert.

Homemade pasta is excellent. Tables are very close together so private conversations are impossible. Service is efficient but not terribly friendly.

Authentic Italian served by authentic Italians. The Ragu was delicious and the homemade pasta was too. Freshly baked homemade bread made us all so happy. We sat outside and it's a nice quiet street. I originally was skeptical because it's described as a restaurant/cafe/deli and I'm glad we still went - one of the best meals we had in London.

Consistently wonderful, there are some welcome additions to the menu at Briciole such as the delicious salad of puntarelle and anchovies. A shared starter of burrata and silky, delicately smoked ham from the Specials board was sensational. It's always a real treat to eat here.

Food is always delicious here and staff are lovely. My favourites are the gnocchi and beef meatballs (you can get pasta on the side). Dont forget the tiramisu! Super creamy and rich but delicious (worth sharing)! Cute atmosphere although it can get very busy, it's worth booking ahead.

I had been to Briciole a few years ago and had always remembered it. The food is of a very high quality - we tried a mixture of cheese, meat and pastas - and it was all superb.

We were a lunch party of ten people. We were offered the party menu which was ok but a little limited in choice. Service was good and the food was good too. Ideal for an informal lunch.

Nice little italian restaurant, just off Edgware Road.
Ingredients were prime quality, pasta with clams was a good garlic&oil pasta, but unfortunately clams were a bit bland (guess this is what you get in London generally).
Service was fast and courteous.
We will be back!

Very good value for money. A nice ambience and atmosphere. Staff were efficient, but stretched.
The quality of the food was good but not outstanding.
However, the good value for money made up for this.
I wouldn't mind eating there again, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to do so.

Our first meal in London did not disappoint. We went with our two daughters and my father - loved that there was something for everyone on the menu. Service was warm and inviting although a little rushed at the start. Everything was delicious (especially the meatballs) - a neighborhood gem!
