Luce e Limoni is the symbolic return of owner Fabrizio Zafarana to his home, Sicily. It is the materialisation of a concept woven with beauty, local Sicilian cuisine and good taste. In a way, it is the repossession of Fabrizio’s roots.

The menu embraces our native approach to food –
take the best ingredients, allow that quality to shine through and present them with as little fuss as possible.

Our food is the story of a long trip which changes over time, but with one common point: the tradition. In Sicily, trade brought hundreds of years of foreign influence, which we try to bring in our restaurant by offering revisited traditional dishes giving fresh sensations to our customers.

Lovely little restaurant, with homemade bread and pasta. Under rated, in our opinion. Always friendly, pleasant and a joy to eat here.

I found this gem online and I booked for a special dinner with my parents and a friend who were visiting me. We're all Italians so the expectations were high, but this is definitely one of the best Italian places I've in London so far. Amazing traditional Sicilian cuisine with some nice variations but nothing crazy. Would definitely reccomend the salmon and the squid ink ravioli with ricotta (make it a regular dish!). Outstanding desserts, panna cotta and pistachio semifreddo on top.
Staff friendly and always happy to help.

This is a truly authentic cuisine from the South of Italy. Dishes are beautifully prepared, meat and fish are carefully chosen. The wine list (and knowledge) are very good indeed. Prize level very reasonable. Rare in London

Very enjoyable meal at Luce e Limoni. Excellent food with a subtly different, Sicilian, take on a traditional Italian menu. Only criticism would be the rather expensive wine-list, but the food was very good indeed.

Luce and Limoni is a neighbourhood treat. The authentic Sicilian food is beautifully prepared with an excellent Sicilian wine list to accompany. Service is very friendly and the owner and staff will recommend wine to go with your meal as many of the wines are not widely known. You can have a full blown Italian meal or just one of two course and there is no pressure, even on a Saturday night. There are good antipasti, pasta, risotto and fish and meat options as well as home made Sicilian deserts.
We knew the previous restaurant of Fabrizio nearer to Farringdon which was also great but very small and “cafe” like. Luce et Limoni is more grown up and a lovely place for dinner in a proper restaurant without crazy central london prices, seek it out!

Great food and the service was fantastic. We were there with three children and although it is clearly nice enough to serve as a great date spot, they made us feel perfectly comfortable and we all loved our food.

Fantastic restaurant, exceptional food and fantastic wine. My friend and I shared a starter and two mains which the chef kindly served on separate plates rather than us having to divide our meals ourselves.

Highlights were the black cuttlefish ink ravioli with crab and red mullet and the red wine from Mount Etna (Vino di Anna). The wine was expensive but absolutely worth it and worked with every dish we had.

Service was friendly and knowledgeable. It is inexplicable that this restaurant wasn't packed on a Saturday night. A wonderful find!

The food was very good, and I think the experience would have been equally good except that it was very busy and noisy as there were two large parties and the restaurant was open to the street making it airy but the non-party tables were close to the traffic.

Good, but felt that the manager could have sold to us less. There was a bit of pressure at the beginning of the meal to order, even though we were waiting for other guests to arrive.
He also pushed the specials quite hard, which is understandable at first but not when it's done repeatedly.
Other than that, we had a great time and really enjoyed the food.

Absolutely authentic and delicious Sicilian food with charming waiters.
I loved the beautiful crystal lights and picture of lemons as in the name, Luce e Limone!
Was a little bit quiet so not a buzzing atmosphere.
But we three girls had a very good time!
