Il Cucciolo could win an award for cuteness with its two arched fairy light-filled windows either side of a small arched door just up the street from Technicolor Piccadilly Circus. Inside is as cosy as you’d expect; neatly dressed tables subtly illuminated by faux candle wall lamps. Patient, polite staff expertly serves a modest range of traditional Italian pasta, meat, vegetarian, rice and fish dishes. Carefully-prepared specials change daily alongside a very good value set menu!

We had a lovely meal - the scampi provenciale was too die for - and the service was quick, friendly and unobtrusive. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody who enjoys good Italian cooking.

We were late for our booking, worried we wouldn't be in time for the theatre, but we were fitted in and served quickly and still had time for tiramisu Is definitely on my go to list now also great place to meet up after work.

Not the best Italian I have ever eaten, but the food was above average. The restaurant was busy (Saturday evening) with every table occupied and this may have impacted the service, which was friendly but quite slow.

We had picked Il Cucciolo because of the excellent reviews, but found it very average. The food was OK (apart from undercooked potatoes) but not great and there was plenty of it - but it was no better than a very standard chain restaurant. The one bright spot was the Limoncello dessert - delicious!

Excellent brie starter and seafood pasta for my companion, my chicken in a white wine mushroom sauce was left mainly uneaten, beyond disappointing and inedible, as was the veg, the roasted potato pieces were overdone. We were not asked how our dinners were. Overall very good, grateful to be seated by friendly male waiter. Good value for money and 10% service charge, but left hungry. Would order pasta dish IF I were returning.

The reception we received was welcoming, the restaurant is cosy, and the staff very efficient. The food was excellent. Attractively served, hot and tasty. The restaurant was full, buzzing but not too noisy. I would definitely recommend this.

Located 5 minutes away from the theatres. The staff were amazing, we said we only had 40 minutes to eat and be at our show, they managed to do all that and serve lovely appetising food. Definately recommend for quality of food and efficient service.

We chose a main meal only with drinks. The drinks came promptly and the food was not delayed in any way. We each had something different from the menu but each dish was delicious. We left our plates empty and will certainly book this restaurant again.

Service was great even though it was very busy. Very lively atmosphere as quite a small restaurant and every table was taken; the tables are quite close to each other but enough space to be comfortable. Fair prices for central London, especially for a family of 5. Would definitely book again, happily. Really enjoyed the meal.
