Giles Coren The Times
"And we had quite unexpectedly wonderful meal of beautiful wafer-thin porchetta, light as Japanases bonito flakes; golden, tomatoey arancini, oozing molten mozzarella;dark, gamey, grilled salsiccia with stewed peas, onions and ham; firm, sexy tagliatelle with shaved artichoke; glorious meatballs and pecorino salad; a bottle of fizzy water, a Coke and a coffee, and it came to £42.86. FORTY-TWO POUNDS, EIGHTY-SIX! Mind-blowing." Read the full review here
Latium’s chef adds a second string to his bow with his unassuming Marylebone Italian, which houses a small deli/cafe for espresso, snacks and takeaway in front and a larger dining room doling out reasonably priced regional small plates in back; the cheer space is fitted with exposed brick and chalkboard menus, lending it an authentic trattoria vibe, plus there’s alfresco seating in warm weather.
The London Evening Standard
"The 50-cover, informal Italian trattoria features a rustic Italian menu, with a low price point." "It features an adjacent private dining room with space for an additional 30, and a Gastronomía (deli)." Read the full review here
"The prices make you gasp and stretch your eyes. They are so utterly reasonable."
"Briciole is the sort of place you want within walking distance of where you live for those evenings when the fridge is bare or your energy gauge is nudging empty." Read the full review here
"...We stayed for dinner and had a selection of breads, meat, cheese and salad to start followed by a superb pasta dish. The lemon sorbet mixed with prosecco was a revelation! The wine list was extensive and, like the food, incredibly reasonably priced. The service was, as we had expected, excellent."
"...The food is simple Italian 'trattoria' cuisine at its best: nothing fancy or pretentious, everything totally delicious. Particularly remarkable (and rare to find on menus) were the meatballs with pizzaiola sauce. We also enjoyed the fennel flavoured sausage with sprouting broccoli and a moving vitello tonnato (not to everybody's taste, but if you like this sort of thing this is as grandma would have wanted it)..."
"...It’s a cool, airy, brick-lined space: there’s a takeaway and a deli at the front, complete with lemon tree. Prices are remarkably un-Marylebone. All this plus that rarity, a flawless sgronnino – lemon sorbet zhuzhed with prosecco. A find."
"...It is a guilty pleasure, like wearing nonna’s fur coat, or finding nonno’s Pirelli candelars. It doesn’t blow the doors off, necessarily, but it’s like having a little bit of italy right here in London..."
"...This is a very cosy yet modern Italian trattoria: the dishes are simple, punchy and flavoursome, the ingredients fresh, the value for money gobsmacking - they also have a deli counter and a great selection of breads, which makes this a perfect place to go for a quick but tasty bite in your lunch break - pity I don't work around here!"
"Lovely, inviting Italian treasure, tucked away in Marylebone"
"Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere, Lovely owner."
"Will definitely be going back to this little treasure."
"The food is fantastic here - real italian flavour and flair. very social as dishes are meant to be shared with a great wine list to complement all the wonderful food. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgable (and Italian just to ensure the authenticity !) - Highly highly recommended!!!"
"...Service was excellent and the ambience was just perfect. I would definitely go back if I find myself in the area, and my wife, who works up the road will definitely return one lunchtime.
Congratulations on a good start."
