Leggero says
A destination for all; a casual dining room located in the very heart of vibrant Soho.

The art of handmade cooking is rediscovered in our kitchen where simple, delectable and fresh dishes are revisited and twisted into cosmopolitan meals.
Ravioli, tagliatelle and gnocchi lie at the heart of our chef’s menu that takes diners on a journey through the beauty of Italy’s rolling hills, flat planes and sprawling mountains to the vibrant streets of central London.

Whilst the secret to what elevates great food is kept secret in our recipes books; it is innovation which is key to our uniqueness. Leggero is the only entire Italian Gluten-Free menu in the UK and you wouldn’t have guessed it.
Vegan, Vegetarian and Dairy-Free options available.

When you have food allergies or restrictions it's hard to imagine/remember going into a restaurant where you can pick absolutely anything on the menu. (Even more incredible when your options aren't restricted to crumbly rice-flour pizza bases and pasta dishes substituted with Free-From Penne from Sainsbury's).  So I found my mouth and eyes and entire body watering when I read through this menu - to not only find a variety of dishes but actually delicious and gourmet speciality Italian dishes, things like lamb meatballs, gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and truffle cheese and Tagliatelle with white bolognese sauce. 

We shared six sharing plates and two mains between three of us - the highlights being the ravioli stuffed with salmon, the aforementioned lamb meatballs and lamb bolognese. And because life and gluten free restaurants are all about making the most of the good things you can find, we shared a bottle of sweet prosecco and two desserts between us - a creamy, soft tiramisu and a firm chunk of New York-style cheesecake with a buttery biscuit base. We finished with two espresso martinis (it was a special occasion) and god this was a feast for the senses. The service was also excellent and my two non-glutard friends are now total converts.

Hard to spot their food is gluten-free, an Italian experience in the heart of Soho a reasonable price.
