    Great food, fresh ingredients, fabulous service and a menu with plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluton-free choices. Don't be put off by the front door and view form the street - the food and service is what makes Leggero fantastic. Only one of our party of 3 was vegan, but all of us loved the menu. Mouth-watering and we will be back again.

    We were looking for a restaurant for our day trip to London, that had a good range of gluten free options as one of our party can't eat gluten. We were all excited to find this place on line and reality didn't disappoint. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff are friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was great. I would recommend booking in advance as plenty of people were turned away disappointed who just walked in without a booking. I would definitely recommend this place whether you can eat gluten or not.

    Great service and lots of gluten free food to choose from. Tables quite close together but created a relaxed atmosphere.

    Went here to try something and because the friend I was dining with is celiac and always has trouble finding new dishes to try. We went here and it was wonderful. Lovely service and even better food. I had a delicious Chestnnut Pappardelle with mushroom and truffle oil paired with a yummy cabarnet. Must try if you are in London!

    I visited on a Saturday lunchtime and thankfully had booked - the restaurant is fairly small and plenty of people were left disappointed upon turning up and realising there would be no space for a while. Between three of us, we shared the bruschetta trio start and it was delicious. The GF intolerant of our party was particularly impressed that the bread wasn't dusty and reminded her of bread she used to be able to eat. The two of us who aren't GF still really enjoyed the bruschetta, the flavours were fantastic. For our mains two of us had the truffle pasta and the other had the caserecce. All three of us were thoroughly impressed with the dishes - would have loved a few more mushrooms in the truffle pasta, but that was really the only gripe. In addition to being entirely GF, the restaurant caters very well for vegans, with a good few options if you're not eating meat. Even though we were stuffed from the savoury, we still managed space for some dessert and tried the tiramisu and cheesecake. Both were very, very tasty. We left happy and very full. The GF lady was so happy she'd been able to have a full three course meal out without compromising on taste or feeling like she's being 'difficult'. Would definitely recommend, even if you aren't GF, but just fancy some good Italian food, reasonably priced.
