Luce e Limoni Italian restaurant London is a fine embassy for Sicilian food, offering great traditional dishes which evoke the sunny isle’s trading influences. It is located in a part of Clerkenwell known as Little Italy. Yes, those looking for authenticity in their Italian dining experience might appreciate not only Luce e Limone’s wonderful Sicilian menu, but also the restaurant’s historical location.
During the 19th century, south-western Clerkenwell’s population of Dickensian petty criminals was gradually supplanted by hard-working Italian migrants. Most of the enclave’s Italian population dispersed during the 20th century, but even today some 5% of residents in this corner of London were born in Italy. Some shop signs still bear witness to Little Italy’s past and it remains a popular destination for visitors seeking the most authentic Italian restaurants London has to offer.
This is as unpretentious as a Sicilian restaurant should be. The menu, says owner Fabrizio, embraces his native island’s approach to food: the best ingredients prepared and presented with as little fuss as possible – and paired with an excellent Sicilian artisan wine list.
