Discover London's Best: Our Top 3 Hidden Italian Restaurants – Brutto, E Pellicci, and Forza Wine

London, our vibrant capital where culinary wonders unfold at every turn. As purveyors of exceptional Sicilian canned wine, we've embarked on a quest to unearth the city's hidden Italian gems. Join us as we unveil our top three 'under the radar' Italian restaurants that promise a taste of Italy within London's bustling streets – Brutto, E Pellicci, and Forza Wine.

1. Brutto: A Rustic Florentine Haven in London

Experience the rustic allure of Brutto, a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of London. With weathered wooden tables and the inviting aroma of handmade pasta, Brutto encapsulates the essence of a local Italian trattoria. Serving up traditional Florentine dishes, we advise getting there early to secure the best slice of Florentine steak that is chalked up on the board each night. 

2. E Pellicci: Timeless Tradition with a Modern Twist in Bethnal Green

Step into the art deco embrace of E Pellicci, an iconic establishment with roots dating back to the 20th century. Beyond its historic façade lies a contemporary take on traditional Italian cuisine. From classic lasagna to innovative reinterpretations, E Pellicci seamlessly weaves the old with the new, offering a dining experience that transcends time. Immerse yourself in the richness of Italian flavours amidst the historic backdrop of Bethnal Green. They serve up a mean full english too, not to be missed.

3. Forza Wine: A Symphony of Italian Wine and Cuisine in Peckham

Forza Wine, nestled on a rooftop in Peckham, is our go to summer destination, but in the winter, the candlelit bar is the place to be. Explore a curated selection of Italian wines served up by really passionate staff. From crisp antipasti to bold main courses, Forza Wine invites you to savour the perfect pairing of exceptional wines and delectable Italian small plates. 

In a city teeming with culinary secrets, these three Italian gems – Brutto, E Pellicci, and Forza Wine – stand out for their authenticity, warmth, and most importantly, utterly delicious food.
