2 for 1 at Il Castelletto Bloomsbury

ll Castelletto Bloomsbury is conveniently located by the British Museum making it ideal for a bite to eat after a day's sightseeing.

The decor replicates the Italian atmosphere with success, from the simple wooden counter to the Italian landscape fresco on the other end of the small dining area.

The menu has on offer a fine array of classical Italian dishes ranging from authentic pizzas, risottos and wide ranges of pasta dishes to hearty plates of perfectly cooked meat, fish and poultry.

Why not choose a bottle of wine to compliment your meal from the extensive drinks menu?

    It has a great location next to British Museum, the food is fine but not exceptional. The starters are nice. Pity the reduction does not apply for lunch specials. The service was good and easy to use the card. "

    Fish and meat dishes has a £5 supplement each - not advertised and not told on booking. Three courses ordered - when the bill came, staff claimed that 241 could only be used on TWO courses therefore tried to charged us 2 full price desserts!!! End arguing for awhile before he let it go - taste card app says 241 for all courses! If that really was the case then the advert was wrong on the app or the waiter is being sneaky trying to charge us more!

    The food was so so, sauces are too thick. Portion big. Creme brûlée was the only nice thing.

    The services was bad, table cramp. Wouldn't recommend it or go back there again! "

    Poor food, good on everything else.

    Booking was very easy, they were happy to allow me to book for a table on the same day with the tastecard.

    Service was also good with pleasant staff and again no issue with the tastecard being used.

    Food was very poor. We both had pasta, mine was an avocado pesto pasta which tasted like it was lobbed together at the last minute without much care or thought.

    Consisted of:
    - shop bought pesto (I recognised the brand from taste as a student who has exhausted pasta options in the local supermarket),
    -avocado that was sparse and merely chopped up and put onto the plate raw,
    -shop bought sun ripened tomatoes which were bitter and left to one side, and
    -2 small bits of mozzarella (also uncooked like the avocado).

    Given the ingredients I am sure I could have done a better job and really just thankful I was able to use the tastecard to limit the loss that evening. "

    This is the kind of place where the regulars have been going for years, and there is a great rapport between the staff and the customers. The staff were brilliant and were really patient with my little daughter when we probably would have been more suited to pizza express. I got the chicken and it was delicious, way over and above the quality I was expecting from this little corner restaurant. By the time we left we felt that we had made some new friends. "
