Authentically Italian. Service can be a bit slow but at least it's not hurried! fish is always cooked perfection but this time I ate pork ribs which were delicious. Both I and my guest had green beans which 'sauteed' and amazing!

Wasn’t going to leave a review as I wanted to keep this gem to myself. The Briciole is a wonderful restaurant, love the relaxed dining style and the staff are amazing, will be returning as soon as I am able. The Basajo cheese is a must!

Make sure that you are hungry before eating here as the portions are generous. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the food of good quality and the location easy to get to from Marylebone Station.

Being able to book a table on-line was also convenient.

Cibo buono a prezzi ragionevoli, personale cordiale anche se non presentissimo. Non tanto comprensibile la scelta di non usare l’aria condizionata in una caldissima serata: nonostante le pale sul soffitto, il caldo non era banale rendendo l’esperienza molto meno piacevole di come avrebbe potuto essere.

Hadn’t been before but needed somewhere near Marylebone Station so chose here. Food was stunning, went for twobof the daily specials and they were both extremely tasty with well balanced flavours. Every course was great, staff attentive and atmosphere very friendly. Definitely one to try.

Briciole is a good, safe dining option if looking for a casual evening and good quality meal. Refined or inventive cooking this is not, nor is it the best Italian food I’ve eaten in London (being Italian myself), but this is a safe option for casual midweek dining. Bread is of various types and sliced to order - slightly dry, not baked to order, but accompanied by a strong and fruity olive oil that mopped up adds moistness to the crumb. I had tagliatelle with boar ragu, having read the was Briciole’s forte, but was surprised to find mince rather that the finely chopped, slow cooked cinghiale usually used for this dish in Italy. A generous sprinkle of salt brought the dish more to life, and the tagliatelle were perfectly al dente and well cooked with a satisfying chew. White chocolate creme brûlée certainly satisfies the sweetest tooth (go for this only if you love intense sweetness), with a good crack to the crust, though met with grains of unmelted sugar at the bottom.
We paid £27 for our meal, which is great value for this part of London, so by all means visit if hungry, and possible unfussy.

Quite disappointing. That was an special dinner in London. The venue is nice, the neighborhood too, but the overall experience was poor. Small portions, overpriced , they charged a 12.5% service that was almost nonexistent and it seems they are making you a favor. The feeling is that they are trying to make as much profit as possible instead of delivering a good service so people come back.

We had dinner with our friends there. We really enjoyed the food. The olive oil and the ham were amazing. I purchased a small bottle of the olive oil.
It felt like we were in a local restaurant in Italy. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious.

I was surprised how good the visit to Briciole turned out to be. The restaurant had a traditional Italian ambiance, including the waiters poor English. This was not an issue just added to the evening. The food was good with the salad fresh and an excellent dressing. The sweet and sour meat balls were an interesting choice but went well with the salad and Italian wine.

A fiend and I ate at Briciole on a Friday evening, and had a great meal. The service is friendly and quick, and the food is very fresh and tasty. A lot of traditional Italian dishes are available with a few specials added on a daily basis.The lasagne is really good and the pasta dishes are very well executed, the pasta always being al dente. A nice selection of salads is also on the menu and are generally really good. The restaurant is a popular local spot and always worth booking, would certainly recommend.
