Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2015/16 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2015) edition.

With dining spots nestled next to the deli counter and stocks of cooking books, taking a table here feels like joining in an already bustling occasion, even on quiet days. This warm atmosphere is why Sonny & Vito’s is truly beloved of its regulars. A rich chorizo casserole is a cold-weather favourite and features paprika smoked red peppers that warmly linger on your tastebuds. The goat’s cheese here is sublime, arguably some of the best in the West End and is nicely complemented within a beetroot sandwich. Cakes are baked freshly each morning by the owner and can include an almond tart with a raspberry base and really damn good chocolate brownies. Hot chocolate here is of a high standard, with cream, alluring flavour and lavish presentation. Best for a relaxed sit-in meal – if you can manage to get a table.

  • High point: Selection of alluring cakes
  • Low point: Service can appear overly relaxed
  • Notable dish: Chorizo casserole

Having been in Sonny and Vitos on numberous occassions I doubt I'll be back after our service at lunchtime today, the waitress basically insisted we take a seat outside and she would bring us a menu, we knew what we wanted and didnt expect a drawn out conversation over how much extra they would charge for some salad for a sit in sandwich - on the whole really disappointed if your that busy hire more staff !

Worth a visit for their Parma ham with gorgonzola and pesto sandwich alone. Sooo good!

Proof, is the last bastion of truth.
I'm sure your partner ate many things that day. Can he/she identify the (£3) sausage roll as the culprit, I THINK NOT!!

I frequent this establishment often and openly recommend it to others. It has a fantastic reputation for both taste and hygene.

Horrible experience xmas 2009. My partner bought a sausage roll (£3) day before xmas eve and was violently sick all that evening thus ruining the whole of xmas. I would never frequent this establishment and would NEVER recommend it to others
