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.

Customer reviews for Forty Dean Street
(**** 8 June 2018 by Michelle from London
I didn't have the best experience. The music was too loud so I had to shout every time I wanted to say something to my parents. The food I got was not great, as a starter I had a bresaola salad, but the mustard dressing was way too strong, my mouth was burning. As my main I had the cod fillet with mussels and king prawns and spinach. The spinach was soggy and tasteless, the prawns and mussels was rubbery and again tasteless. The skin on the cod was too soft and. The meat of the fish was ok.
The waiters were very stressed and they seemed to have a new girl that day and she forgot what she had just asked every time. We got the menu cards very late and the same for our food, we waited for a long time.

Overall I'd give this restaurant a solid "OK". The food was pretty decent, but by no means exceptional. The service was pretty good - although our young waitress was slightly irritating in that she interrupted our conversation several times, before we'd had time to choose.
I think it was quite expensive - but probably that's more a reflection of location rather than the food.

Vast improvement in quality of food since it reopened following the fire.

Enjoyed Aubergine parmigiana, and the vegetarian tagliatelle. Overall a good experience.
Would like to give some feedback
- The pasta could have had little less oil. Seemed very oily and put me off slightly
- The bread offered for the table was dry and stale
- biscuit offered with the espresso, I could NOT bite. Almost felt my tooth come off (not to mention I looked foolish in front of my friend)

Delicious lunch! Rustic Italian cooking. Small and cosy venue in the heart of Soho. Delicious pizza and pasta. Really enjoyed it and would definitely return.
