Vasco and Piero opened the restaurant in 1971. Vasco and Piero created the restaurant out of a passion for good, uncomplicated Italian food. The making of fresh pasta on the premises has always been a priority. From the outset, the menu changed twice a day, a tradition which still continues.
Vasco was born in Umbria and as a result of this many foods are sourced direct from farmers in this region. Particular favourites are truffles, wild mushrooms, seasoned cheeses and cured meats such as lombetto and capocollo.
We only use the best quality extra virgin olive oil mainly from Umbria, Central Italy.
Many of our hams & salames such as Lombetto (a cured loin of pork) are imported from local Umbrian farms.
When in season, we import black & white truffles from hunters around the hills of Umbria.
Our balsamic vinegar is from Modena. We use Maldon sea salt with pure flaky crystals.

Private Dining

For parties over 12 people,we offer a 3 course menu for £25 plus optional 12.5% gratuity for parties in the private room.

I’m a regular, whenever my travels bring me to London, I try to find an evening to come to V&P’s.
Of course, no disappointment yet another time!

The food is always very good at Vasco and Piero's. The choices aren't crazily extensive but the options are varied and appealing. We've eaten there on a number of occasions and have always had a great meal and the service is friendly and helpful. This time we went for a pre-theatre meal and needed to be away by 7pm so the staff not only ensured we were served in time but also printed out a walking map for us to get to the theatre. Great food , service and location.

This was a wonderful, unpretentious dining experience for three friends - one of whom is an Italian cuisine snob who couldn’t stop raving over his dishes.

The restauranteur and staff were all delightful and helpful.

Highly recommended!!!

We have eaten at many restaurants in London and this was one of the worst meals we had. The soup was tasteless. The main dishes (one fish and one meat) were presented on tasteless beans. The service was less than mediocre. Considering the cost of the meal, it deserves a zero rating if that was possible.

Really good, generously portioned (in-house made!) pasta, old school feel. Anti-trendy, delicious, and worth a visit. This is a place you won't wonder, "Am I cool enough to be here?" - and that's a good thing.

Food good quality and well cooked. Value - abysmal. 3 small chops, a few tiny roast potatoes and 3 sprigs of broccoli. Dessert - 1 banana, sugar on top. flamed with a blow-torch with a dollop of ice cream.

All very simple and very quick to cook.

Price - £38.

A real gem of a restaurant. Lovely food, service and ambience. Would definitely recommend and is very popular judging by the queues at the door. Overall good value the only negative I can find is that I thought the main courses were a little pricey - but I'm nit picking as it was really nice, excellent food and wine.

A lovely authentic Italian serving fabulous food. Staff very friendly, service was very good!
Our waitress overheard me saying I’d have ordered the tortilini but not sure on the black truffle oil. When our meal arrived she brought the pasta dish out for me to try! Fabulous as was the tortilini and I will definitely be returning!

Little gem of an Italian restaurant on the western side of Soho. Authentic Italian dishes, friendly and efficient staff. Great place for a business lunch. Simple, fresh decor with starched white table clothes.
The mushroom tortellini with truffle butter was exquisite. Highly recommend for lunch a deux.

Can’t remember the last time I’ve been to a restaurant with cover charge policy. £2 per person, what for actually? Add the 12.5% service charge, that was well over £25 in additional charges for 3 of us. Food is good & fresh, but nothing mind blowing. Overall, don’t regret going there but wouldn’t return.
