Italian
Named after its friendly owner, Stef’s is a family-run Italian eatery in the heart of the London’s West End. The atmosphere is laid-back and unpretentious, allowing the first class food and wine to speak for itself. The menu is traditional and extensive, full of Italian classics like Gamberoni Diavola and Bistecca di Manzo with a brandy, cream and three peppercorn sauce. There’s a pasta to please everyone and the kids will love the authentic thin-crust pizzas. Situated just off Oxford Street, Stef’s is the perfect place to linger over lunch or enjoy dinner before a night out in nearby Soho.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our final visit to this lively, fun restaurant, with excellent food and wine, and look forward to sampling the new restaurant in Islington after the forthcoming move. Hope Stef makes a very good recovery from his recent health issues.

    This is a little gem. Flavoursome food, reasonably priced, attentive and friendly but not overly-intrusive service staff. Well worth a visit pre-show at the Palladium. Highly recommended. Will return to sample more of the delicious menu when we are next in town.

    I was recommended the restaurant by a good friend but it didn't reach my expectations. The starter, calamari was overcooked and the main fillet of pork was very salty. The service was quick but the waiter was probably bored as he was singing and chatting with the rest of the staff. I don't know if the problem was that the restaurant was almost empty at that time or that we sat very close to the kitchen. I didn't find the overall value very attractive so I don't think I'll recommend it or go back.

    Please don't miss this little gem of a restaurant just in Soho. The food is delicious, the waiters are handsome and friendly and the ambiance is fun and inviting. Stefano (the owner) is an amazing man with incredible team to make your dining experience the best ever.

    I met a friend at Stef's to catch up. It's not a traditional looking Italian restaurant but that was a small and actually inconsequential issue. From the moment we entered we felt welcomed and comfortable. Staff were attentive and the food was excellent. I even came home with a recipe for pasta sauce to try - not from the menu but given to me by the enthusiastic owner after he asked if we liked avocados - it was excellent! Definitely recommend.

    Great value for Money. We had the 3 course meal with ½bottle of house wine. 2 diners, starter came very fast. A bit of a wait for the main course, but the place was also fully booked. Main course was worth the wait: the Linguine Panna E Salmone was soooo good! Best I've had for a long time. Even though the place was busy the waiters were very friendly and did their bit to keep the service level up.

    Our waiter was incredibly unhelpful and quite frankly, a bit rude. He walked away from our table twice while we were ordering drinks and did not return until one of us got his attention again. When he brought our drinks over, he effectively threw our bottle of wine on the table and did not even open it. It took 15 minutes to get his attention to point this out to him. He did not once check whether we were happy with our food. Plus, my absolutely pet hate, he started clearing plates before we'd all finished, even attempting to take a plate while one of us was still eating. Overall, the food was good but the service was dreadful.
