Zizzi pasta dishes

Zizzi - The Strand.

If you think the standard Italian restaurant affair needs a fresh approach, Zizzi is the restaurant you’ve been searching for. With the vast amount of Italian restaurants in London, Zizzi is the ideal option if you’re looking for somewhere that offers something that your typical Italian restaurant doesn’t.

They bring all of the flavours you’ve come to know and love from Italian cuisine but also offer a new spin on old favourites for those who feel they’ve been and done the Italian experience. Those seeking something different will find exciting, mouth-watering flavours in their rustica pinoli, calzone carne piccante, and weird but wonderful pasta crisps. When looking for the best places to eat in London for tourists, we couldn’t recommend Zizzi more.

Bella Italia pasta

Bella Italia - The Strand.

Bella Italia serves up some mouth-watering Italian delights every time you visit this distinctive restaurant. They only use the finest ingredients in their well-established family recipes, making them one of the best London restaurants for tourists.

The location is great too; this restaurant is located just opposite the Adelphi Theatre right in the centre of London. It’s the ideal place if you want a pre or post-theatre dining experience without the hassle of roaming around and aimlessly searching for somewhere to go.

Salsa Soho London

Salsa! Soho.

Looking for some vibrancy and liveliness to your meal when searching for the best places to eat in London for tourists? There’s no better place to visit than Salsa! Soho in the capital’s iconic Soho district (top points if you guessed its location). Being just a few minutes away from world-famous attractions such as The British Museum and Big Ben, it’s the perfect place to stop for a flavoursome bite to eat while exploring the city exploring.

On the Salsa menu, you can find plenty of tasty tapas nibbles that will introduce you to the world of flavour that Central and South American cuisine offers. Tuck into some quesadillas and fajitas, or enhance your tapas with one of their sharing planks for a tasty Latin experience.

Island Poke London

Island Poke - Victoria.

If you’re looking for something a little different when looking for restaurants for tourists in London, take the time to try out some poké, a delicious dish that originates all the way from Hawaii. 

Ideal for those wanting something fresh and light to eat on their travels, the quality of these fish-based dishes from Island Poke has led them to be voted the best poke in London. For those wanting to grab a bite to eat after seeing Buckingham Palace, Island Poke is just a stone’s throw away, so don’t miss out on what they have to offer!
