Review #20 Il Piccolo Diavilo, Stroud Green

  • 2021 Update! This review refers to the old iteration of Piccolo Diavolo towards Crouch Hill station. Shortly before the pandemic they moved to new premises in the now defunct La Porchetta. They now have a bigger room but I’m glad to say retain the same quality of food and service (and management) as in their old premises. It was the last restaurant we went to before everything closed down in 2020 and the first we visited on reopening. Still highly recommended as a friendly neighbourhood Italian.

An old favourite so this review pretty much writes itself. A good spread of Italian staples on the menu with a tempting rota of specials that changes regularly. The room is cosy and the service warm and friendly. On this occasion I shared a couple of starters of deep fried seafood/veg/cheese with dips. On any day but the coldest of the year it would have filled me up but I was ready for more. A pizza rosso (?) of fiery chilli and peppers that was just right with a slug of Montepulciano. One diner had a Stinco that was billed as being pig-based but surely came from something the size of an elk. Le Pic D does good Italian comfort food to be shared with friends.

8/10
