Forty Dean Street is the pinnacle of affordable Italian cuisine in busy Soho. We are a small, family run restaurant dedicated to providing incredible food at incredible prices. Our set menu boasts a variety of sensational dishes built around fresh, seasonal produce and has customers coming back on a daily basis. Our à la carte menu is a favourite with our regulars, the media crowd and tourists alike.
Italian food has been served at Forty Dean Street for more than 17 years, so we like to think there’s nothing we haven’t mastered. So pop in for an Aperol Spritz!

We are fully Covid-19 certified by Food Alert.

    Once again Forty Dean Street did not disappoint. Great service, melt in the mouth pasta and really buzzy atmosphere.

    Absolutely fantastic food and lovely place. Service was great and we had a lovely lunch. It got busy and therefore a little noisy but a wonderful place with outstanding food.

    Excellent find in Soho! Cosy, authentic decor. Service was excellent; timing between courses, topping up of water, extra Parmesan! Food was delicious and good portions. Definitely go back

    Great Italian food at 40 Dean Street, especially the obviously fresh calamari and tiger prawns. The rump lamb was beautifully cooked. The menu is mostly pasta and pizza, which I'm sure are delicious. Very decent and not overpriced wine list. Overall really good.

    Had an excellent evening at this restaurant. The service was first rate and the wine and food excellent. Great piece of salmon with mussels, cooked to perfection with the skin crisp. The arancini starter was also very good. Very reasonably priced also.

    We dined here on vacation in London, our server was very attentive although very busy, started with an old fashioned, standard classic, the mozzarella garlic bread was HUGE and delicious, the linguine with Tiger prawns in garlic sauce was delicious, and my fiancee had the ricotta ravioli in truffle sauce which she said was also amazing, for dessert we had the fondont with ice cream and pistachio tiramisu, both very good. Overall a lovely experience, would recommend.

    A reasonably priced Italian with great food in the heart of Soho. Quite a lively atmosphere. Not a place for a quiet chat.
