Pizza would have to be one of my favourite foods and the pizza at Cecconi's didn't disappoint. I had the prosciutto and buratta pizza which had me dancing in my chair. The chilli oil could have been a bit spicier but the base of the pizza and the flavour of the toppings were spot on. My friend had the wild mushroom pizza but was missing cheese which was for me a deal breaker but for a vegan it would have been perfect. Loved this place to pieces, felt just like I was back in Italy!
Best place for lunch at Old Compton Street in Soho. The menu is short but packed a [punch and delicious!
We went for lunch on a Tuesday. My friend and I ordered the crab spaghetti which was delicious. My daughter had the bresaola pizza which was balanced in taste and texture and yummy. The son had the winner of the meal - the carbonara which was creamy and done perfectly. Our friends had the lamb and pecorrini pizza which was a curious but interesting and winning combination of flavours - I am definitely ordering this next time.
We had a great table by the window which was the perfect place to navel gaze in Soho.
This one is a winner and definitely a place I would recommend to everyone and will come back as often as I can
A brilliant restaurant for pizza and pasta! I enjoyed my first time here so much that I was back 3 days later to try more of the menu.
The first time I came was on a weekend and it was relatively easy to get a table, and a good one too! My brother and I had a lovely table by the window so there was plenty of natural lighting, a nice breeze, and air conditioning on the other end. Together, we shared the Zucchini Fritti, which were delicious! The breading was done perfectly - it was golden, crunchy, and the perfect thickness. It came with an aioli sauce, which went really well with the fries. For our mains, we shared 2 different types of pizzas. The first was the Wild Mushroom, which was a vegan pizza as there was no cheese on it. But to make up for this, there was plenty of mushrooms and spinach! Although it tasted good at first, I realised there wasn't enough flavouring. I added chili flakes and chili oil to give the pizza a blend of flavours. The second was the Bresaola, which was amazing. The cured meat was super tasty and not too salty, and the burrata was so creamy and acted liked an additional layer of sauce on the pizza! As for the pizza dough, it was thin and slightly crispy on the crust. This was great cause it tasted great when dipped into the leftover aioli sauce from the courgette fries.
The second time I came on a weekday and pretty much had the same vibe. The streets were more quiet but the restaurant had a good amount of people perusing the menu and enjoying the food. This time, I tried the Crab spaghetti, which was so yummy! There was a generous amount of pasta and I cook see the flakes of crab in the sauce. I liked how I could see the individual ingredients that were put into the sauce, like the red chilies, the tomatoes, the parsley and the garlic. It's a classic combination with crab and pasta and oh so delicious! Along with this, I went for the Cedrata, which was an Italian fizzy lemonade sort of drink. Very interesting and refreshing in this heatwave!!
Overall, the service has been quick and pleasant both times. The staff are friendly and the food comes out within a good amount of time after ordering. In terms of atmosphere, I like how there is indoor and outdoor seating and then the few tables along the window, where you can get a half in, half out sort of experience.
