The staff were good, we were running late but on calling them they kept our table. Service was prompt, friendly, efficient.

We shared two pizzas and a bottle of wine, it was adequate for three ladies, pre theatre light meal.

It was a busy evening. The restaurant is exceptionally handy for the Prince Edward Theatre so perfect for our evening performance of Mary Poppins.

The food was great - highlights included the zucchini fritters to start and the carbonara and pumpkin ravioli for mains. Prices a little on the high side - especially for any alcohol! Service was quick, friendly and helpful. We had booked a table for 5.30pm prior to visiting the theatre opposite; it was already very busy, very noisy and very dark!

The Food took 1:10h to be served, not worth the wait!

Too noise!!!!!
It’s not a restaurant is a bar with food.
If you want to party go for it.
If you are looking for a restaurant, DONT GO!
Food is good but the noise level with loud music doesn’t allow you to talk to the people in your party. Entrees and main dishes were brought to the table at the same time.

Loved the food! However the Negroni I ordered was a little tooo strong, had to dilute it with sparkling water to make it drinkable, other than that, I will always go back there again

Lovely pizza, however extremely noisy bar. Very difficult to have a conversation. Very very busy, there is a bar with seats in the middle of the restaurant and every one is crammed in. We had to wait outside the restaurant for our table as there was no free space inside. I personally wouldnt go there again which is a shame.

Despite having a reservation and arriving well within the grace period of 15 minutes, we were told our table was no longer available and we would have to wait around 20 minutes for a table. We ended up waiting around 35 minutes before we were seated which was a major disappointment and meant we really had to rush our meal as we had to be at the theatre afterwards.

However, putting this to one side, the food was delicious and particularly the pizza was perfect and the tiramisu, one of my favourite desserts, was outstanding.

The staff were very friendly and the manager in particular was very empathetic and did his best to ensure that our experience was bettered, which we thoroughly appreciated, and were very grateful for his attentiveness and consideration.

Because if this, and despite the unfortunate start to the meal, I would happily visit the Pizza Bar again!

Great central location for the theatres, good atmosphere, service was excellent, food was tasty - only criticism was the lighting for dining, perfect for having a drink at the bar but a bit dim for eating.

We went for the drinks and pasta happy hour between 3pm and 6pm. Such good value all pastas are £5 and cocktails £5 too! Pasta was delicious maybe a bit small but great for £5, maybe wouldnt pay full price but would go again for the 3-6pm happy hour.

We had a pre-theatre lunch so the restaurant was quiet, which was fine. Food was excellent and freshly prepared. The truffle arancini was outstanding; the best I have tasted outside of Italy. Staff were really friendly and the service was excellent. I will definitely be returning. Great value for money.

Good offers for lunch and during their happy hour. I ordered a Grey Goose Le Fizz and my friend had a Dark and Stormy. Both cocktails were mixed well and we didn’t wait very long for them to arrive. We had the sausage and fennel pizza and bolognese. You won’t get better wood fired pizza than at Cecconi’s! This is by far one of the best pizza places in Soho! We’ll definitely be be back! It does get busier around 6pm so make sure you book a table in advance.

We had a good experience with central location and food tasty. However, staff were rushed off their feet and we had to prompt them for drinks and food several times. Noisy environment so bear in mind.

Nice ambience and service was good. Loved the courgette fritti but thought the pappardelle was a bit under al dente and too chewy. The pizzas on the other tables looked fab and big

Pleasant experience with great service and a chef who went out of his way to source some gluten free pasta for my daughter. A little noisy with unnecessarily loud music being played so had to shout to make ourselves heard.

Super cheap and good, friendly service, but the music was really too loud for a lunch, it was impossible to chat and it was only 5:30pm. I love this place for a quick bite for lunch but it is so different to the other Cecconi’s (like the ones in Mayfair and at the Ned).

Fabulous, well-priced food and drink. Only complaint was it was very, very noisy for a meal, more like eating in a disco! Would have been fine if just for drinks. Despite that, we will return!

Diner was good, i wish i had a bit more mozzarella on my pizza. The ambiance is fun, if you like to scream at the person sitting right next you, go ahead. Truthfully the place was good but its very very noisy with the music that isnt that loud its just that the sound proofing needs work.

Tried here on a whim as was looking for a cool pizza restaurant pre theatre - we weren't disappointed, especially as the cocktails are £5 between 3pm-6pm. Pizzas were tasty and the ambience in the restaurant is great - lively and cool music.

The food is very tasty with sharing of small dishes, pasta and pizza encouraged so you can try a bit of everything. The cocktails are also great and good value given the location in Soho. The only negative is the service, the servers are a bit blasé, there was no one to great us as we arrived so we just took a seat and service generally is quite chaotic.

All in all, it's a great venue for a group for dinner. It's a lively restaurant with loud music and a good atmosphere.

My food was delicious, but the pasta portion was so much smaller than my colleagues eating pizza or salad. I ate in half the time, it was disproportional.
The music volume was really uncomfortable for a working lunch and this is the perfect location for us to eat with clients.
The wait staff was quite slow and inattentive, after we'd eaten they tried to give us a whole new round of pizzas which were clearly not for us. We had to chase for the bill.
This was a shame as food did taste very good and location is brilliant.

Service was appalling. Forgot about one of our orders and then waited for coffees for over 30 minutes. The waiter also didn’t understand the difference between £13.40 and £13.50 when paying and charged my friends more than they should have paid. Never again going back there. Waste of time and money.

It was very good, however, my friend had the small pizza which was served on a metal plate with paper underneath. Very difficult to eat with knife and fork!

The noise was unbearably loud - more of a bar or nightclub than a restaurant. This restaurant devalues the Cecconi’s brand.

Spaghetti carbonara went back as too salty - but a replacement dish was taken. We had to ask for a glass of wine three times. Chaotic staff.

Great value food and drink, especially during 3-6. Unfortunately had to wave down the waiters a few times to actually get served. Quite a few people were trying to place their order at the bar because no one was serving the tables

We ordered almost all the starters, everything was delicious apart from the burrata, that balsamic vinegar on top ruined everything:( and parmigiana was very dry..
