About Ristorante Topo Gigio

If London life just seems too impersonal and too hectic, Ristorante Topo Gigio will remind you what service with a smile is like. Nestled below pavement level in the urban jungle of Soho, this is a traditional, friendly Italian unaffected by ever changing fashions and fads, relying on the great service and food which has kept diners coming back for more than twenty five years. Move through the bar and downstairs to the oh-so-Italian underground restaurant and you could have taken a 750 mile trip to Tuscany. Simple, traditional Italian homecooked dishes continue the theme, with inspiration taken from across the country. Mamma mia!
