Time Out says
Located in the heart of bustling Soho, this family-run restaurant has been serving up hearty Italian fare for nearly 20 years. The decor is slightly dated yet charming, with a cosy candlelit atmosphere in the evening.
The menu includes the usual Italian staples of pizza, pasta and seafood. A starter of panfried tiger prawns was served piping hot and cooked to juicy perfection, while the gnocchi main – complete with wild mushrooms, smoked mozzarella and about five litres of truffle oil – proved a tasty way to sabotage one’s waistline. A generous portion of lobster ravioli was equally as filling, if a bit dry. And for those craving more, there are a variety of homemade desserts available, from a zingy lemon tart to a silky-smooth vanilla panna cotta.
But the real star of the show here is the set menu. Available all day, every day, it offers filling Italian fare at great value (the price differs by the day – go early in the week), making Forty Dean Street an ideal destination for hungry Londoners on a budget.

I would highly recommend this place to eat. From the delicious food to the lovely service, it would definitely be in my top 3 places to eat for lunch in Soho!
I’m Italian and this is the only restaurant in London I would ever visit. It is so authentic and fresh. You need to go.
Forty Dean Street is a firm favourite when my husband and I visit London. A lovely establishment with wonderful service!
I just had lunch at 40 dean street and it was wonderful (I have lunch there often tbh).
I think their homemade pizzas are some of the most authentic you can get in London. Also, if Nima is there make sure you say hi to him as he will always look after you.
Also, you will always spot the most interesting celebrities here as well including Jeremy Irons and Ron Perlman. what a fab spot, thank you for always being the best.
What a glorious restaurant Forty Dean Street is. The beef shin ragu is an absolute delight. I would highly recommend visiting here for lunch or dinner.
