We found this place having come out of the wrong exit of the British Museum. I am glad we came out of the wrong exit. It is a quiet an assuming place that appears to be run by a husband and wife team. The food is superb I had a perfect mushroom risotto to be honest it was the best I have ever had including those in Italy, my wife had spaghetti bolegnese and the service attentive without being intrusive. Great value for money.
FINE ITALIAN FARE IN LONDON
4 of 5 starsReviewed 26 October 2014
We recently came across Il Castelletto as we were trying to get to know our way around the neighborhood where our London hotel was located. All we wanted was a drink and a snack, which was no problem for our waiter who took care of it in short order and without objecting to our not ordering dinner. It is a charming, little place and is located a block from the British Museum. The next evening our party of six came back for an actual dinner. We got the last available table, and when a group of twelve young people arrived without having made a reservation, the flexible waiters produced the necessary tables and chairs outside, so everybody was happy. The aromas coming out of the kitchen were wonderful and the ambiance quite cozy, and we were all pleased with the food. We are happy to recommend this little Italian gem in London to other travellers.
