Piccolo Diavolo Restaurant

About Piccolo Diavolo Restaurant

’Little devil’ - an appropriate name for a central Soho restaurant, don’t you think? Like several of its sister restaurants in the popular Biagio chain, Piccolo Diavolo has a big menu offering all sorts from soups and veal dishes to grills and healthy options. There are daily specials too. Traditional Italian things are everywhere, most noticeably the bunches of Chianti bottles hanging from the ceiling. All the staff are Italian too. A fresh posy of flowers and a candle sit on every table. During the day the place has a buzz which by the evening reduces to a romantic murmur above the candlelight.
