This Marylebone offshoot of the fancier West End restaurant Latium is as close to a proper Italian trattoria as you’re likely to find in London. Effusive waiting staff greeted us like long-lost relatives as they ushered us past the deli and café-bar area to the airy, informal dining area of this former pub. A wide-ranging selection of small plates, first-class salumi, cheeses, pastas, grills and other mains drawn from all over Italy made ordering fiendishly difficult. We tried to sample some of everything, and soon our table looked pleasingly crowded and varied, as a proper Italian meal should. Some dishes are downright peculiar, some disappointing – a plate of meatballs with peas looked like little mounds smothered in a bright green smoothie, and our cannoli was too thick and unwieldy. But gnocchi with pork cheeks, red onion and peas was spot-on, and a sausage served with polenta flew us straight back to Italy, the fennel singing out from the sausage’s dense porky flavours. This is rustic Italian cuisine at its most honest and inviting – the real deal in a crowded, often disappointing market.

Briciole says
Our award-winning restaurant opened in February 2012. Briciole is a neighbourhood trattoria open from 11am daily. Everything is homemade, including the bread, pasta, sausages and sauces. We have a deli at the front full of artisan cheeses, and a cooked meat range from small producers in Italy. Good food needs good wine and we certainly have a wine list to be proud of. At the front is our main dining room and bar area and two private dining areas at the rear, called Venezia and Roma. We have just completed a new private dining room downstairs that can comfortably accommodate 16 people.

Out with colleagues on business, looking for a restaurant, came across this restaurant on Timeout. We thought we would give it a try, wow, what a great choice the place was great and the food was fantastic and we would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had beautiful food and wine in this lovely friendly restaurant. Unhurried service allowed for a leisurely meal- we certainly didn't feel rushed.

Food is ok. Being Italian my standard may be a little high, I appreciate. Overall the quality of food is ok, possibly good for the average in London. Price is a bit high. The bill was £40 each with a bottle of wine, starter and main and 1 dessert. The service was not great, not professional or well organised.. This detail definitely aligned with Italian standards! Waited 30 minutes after seated for a waitress to take orders and drink. Everything quite slow.. Eventually we received apologies and explanation that there were issues in the kitchen. Totally understandable but again bit professional manners from the manager, So it felt a bit uncomfortable. Perhaps too genuine approach to customer service, considering standards in London. Waitress kind but again nit particularly professional. If the bill was less pretentious and more a Trattoria-like, perhaps I wouldn't be so fussy about service standards and other details.. But it's not east london easy going place, it is a mid-range Italian restaurant in posh west London so I expected a different experience. Again, the food is bit bad at all.
