When looking for Italian in the Victoria area, this is our number one spot. Gustoso provides delicious food at decent prices, and with good service. Portions are not huge, but adequate, and certainly not miniscule as at some higher end locations.
Prices are fair with pasta mains priced at £9 to £14, and meat or fish-based main courses priced at £10 to £17.50. Sides are £4. Specials are also available for a rotating set of dishes each and every day. Reservations are accepted and highly recommended.

Phone: 0207 589 2260
This place is more of a café than a restaurant, and serves tasty and authentic Italian food. With only four tables inside, and a couple outside during warmer weather, it is the perfect place to stop for a quick lunchtime snack, or something a little bit more filling.
Pasta dishes are £7 to £8, delicious tortellini is £10, with focaccia and pizza slices priced at £4 to £6. Overall, prices are affordable and quality is decent.

For good British pub classics in the heart of central London, give this place a visit.
This is a Wetherspoon’s pub, which is a large chain, but we feel it provides decent quality food for the price paid in such a prime location. This is a popular establishment, though, and finding a table may be a challenge.
Breakfast meals run £2.30 to £5 including a drink, with traditional English breakfast being an option. Classic pub meals are £6.50 to £9 each, with pasta, burgers and salads being priced similarly.
Like at most pubs, the food here won’t win any awards, but it is tasty and affordably price.
