Lovely Italian focused food. The sharing platters were tasty and I loved the tuna. Vegetables are plentiful and delicious wines. Service needs to speed up a bit but it's very early days yet but our waiter was charming and v helpful, likewise the waitress.

I’ve been to Calici twice. The first time the food was excellent but the service was terrible-I put that down to teething troubles as the restuarant and bar was packed. I went a second time when there were only two other tables. The food was really bad and the service was even worse. I won’t be returning.

Very nicely done up restaurant but Sadly the food really leaves a lot to be desired. Quite ordinary. You will find better in almost any small Italian town!

Service was attentive. The ambience is warm, very well decorated and with attention to details. Food is generally good although some pasta dishes (tagliolini caponata for instance) had strange execution and had little connection to traditional Italian recipes. Wine list got good geographical diversity and price range. Overall a good experience

Flimsy light wine glasses for a restaurant that boasts about it's wine list is not good.

Service sloppy.

Latte not hot when it arrived. Arrived well before pudding too, so it was consumed as we waited for our desserts. Then we waited a little more for spoons to eat our puddings.

We went very excited to try somewhere new but won't be rushing back.

Shame.

The space is lovely - they’ve done a nice job renovating it. The food was mediocre. The dishes they’re trying to pull off are quite complex and they’re not quite hitting the mark. It has a lovely bar area but unfortunately the food just isn’t up to scratch.

Food was inedible.
We changed dishes twice and it was just horrible. Such a shame because it’s very needed in this area.
Also extremely noisy.
Staff have very poor English so don’t ask too many questions about menu they won’t understand or hear u!!!

This has the potential to be a great replacement of the previous restaurant but the kitchen service is VERY slow and the atmosphere a little flat. The room was also quite chilly so when it’s not full is quite austere feeling. The music also lacks any oomph but the staff who served us (two young women) were very helpful and extremely welcoming, as was the manager. Here’s hoping with time things will improve as the food was lovely and the location very handy and crying out for a decent restaurant!

I was wishing it to be great....was so excited for a new good local restaurant, but unfortunately it was just very average! £9 for 1 course for kids plate seemed a little high, and not so outstanding that it warranted the price tag. I won’t be rushing back, such a shame as was hoping i would be there a lot!

Great addition for locals instead of XO. Rabbit pasta was great, very much like one I had on Ischia. The wine list contains a good selection of reliable italians, all available by glass.

Some teething problems with the service, but it was handled well by the staff in the end.

We are delighted a new Italian restaurant has finally opened in Belsize Village. The food was good albeit a bit limited in range, great wine by the glass list and the interior has a relaxing but formalish feel without being stuffy. The service was a bit chaotic but it was their second day of opening so we are keen to return and would recommend.
