Restaurant description

A Soho favourite for nearly two decades, Forty Dean Street prides itself on offering the finest Italian cuisine for affordable prices. The interior features intimate lighting and classic décor, while the bar prepares a selection of indulgent cocktails alongside a diverse wine list.

The Forty Dean Street menu is packed with seasonal produce, and offers up traditional recipes from across Italy. Fresh pasta recipes include homemade ravioli with sun-dried tomatoes, goat's cheese and mushrooms, while the antipasti selections are perfect to share. There are hand-tossed pizzas, and hearty specialities like the chicken Milanese with tomato and basil.

A comprehensive wine list with full-bodied bottles from around Italy is served at Forty Dean Street in Soho, while the elegant bar area is the place to relax with signature cocktails. The hugely popular set menus are a huge draw too, and offer fine dining for irresistible prices.

Filled with a charming ambience, Forty Dean Street is a stone's throw from numerous theatres in London's West End, and 6 minutes' walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    The two veggie options on the set menu were fantastic! The service was also very good.

    It was so easy to find (off of Shaftesbury Avenue) and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. My friend and I both ordered the black ink linguini which was so tasty and filling that unfortunately we couldn’t order anything else! Only downside was the Bloody Mary cocktail I had ordered which didn’t taste like it had much alcohol in it. Overall I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

    Lovely restaurant chosen because of the location. I had the squid ink linguine which was delicious as were our prawn starters. The house wine (white) was delicious too. All for a reasonable price considering the location. Service was great too. Would definitely eat there again.

    Delicious Italian food and friendly service. We booked in for the break between performances of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue - which is only 5 minutes walk away.
