Nothing too fancy on the menu but healthy italian favorites are prepared with care. The service is top notch. The ladies hail from Brazil. Prices are very reasonable for central London. Nice house red wine too.

I had just returned from a 20day trip in Italy (mostly in the Chianti region) when I stopped by this restaurant and well, not surprisingly, I was quite disappointed. The pasta was very oily and not well seasoned. The wine was good- the best part...More

Most of the places in Bloomsbury are overpriced and geared towards tourists. Old Amalfi is significantly less touristy, and the staff are always incredibly friendly and pleasant. Add to that the fact that the food is exceptional, and not too pricey, and you have a...More

..but if the name of this restaurant was anything to go by, then Italy's Amalfi region must have been formerly famous for its charmless service and the slow, slow passage of time. Eight of us were booked for 7pm. We ordered drinks on arrival which...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,

Yes they were, and we were treated as very valued guests. The atmosphere and ambience were very much as we have found in good restaurants in Italy, where we have never been disappointed.
