Restaurant and bar near Covent Garden
Authentic Italian dining to delight and inspire
Sycamore Vino Cucina is inspired by the desire to deliver an authentic Italian experience. With an atmosphere that reflects our lively Covent Garden neighbourhood, and a contemporary menu from our acclaimed chef, we offer food from dawn until dusk and serve drinks late into the night.
Eat and drink
A symphony of flavours in the most vibrant of settings
Our menus invite sharing; handmade pizzas, indulgent dolce, and authentic small plates from the cicchetti counter. But the real inspiration comes from our head chef's links to Northern Italy. Think pit-grilled meats and hand-rolled pasta, artisan breads baked fresh that morning, and delicate cuts of meat cured the old-fashioned way.
The Italian tone continues at the bar with a wine list that champions the regions of Piedmont, Lombardia, and Tuscany, as well as award-winning vineyards throughout the U.S. You'll find Italian draft beers, a large selection of bourbon and ryes, and some signature takes on classic Negroni cocktails.

Don’t just take our word for it
Absolutely stunning! I took myself for a pre-birthday dinner & it was fabulous. The staff really gave me the 5-star treatment, the food was delicious & my waitress was really patient helping pick out a complimenting wine. After the food, I went to the Middle Eight Bar where there was live jazz from Leo Green & band. It was a really intimate performance but they didn't fail to get everyone up on their feet dancing! Even the staff in the bar were dancing away with us - the best night & the most fabulous start to my birthday & the new year!Krystal Brown, Google Review
Wow. Just wow. Everything was perfect. The service, the food, the flavours. From the starters to the main courses to the dessert - everything was surprising, tasty, and just spot-on. Could not recommend it enough. Would have rated it 6 stars if I could.Eran Boudjnah, Google Review
Such an amazing place for a show-stopping meal. The staff were so friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable and the food was incredible. We will be back for our next special occasion - thank you for such a wonderful night.Emma, Google Review
An incredible restaurant with sublime dishes packed with flavor and impressive technical execution! My 3-course dinner felt like a passionate courtship: enticed by the grilled prawns, blown away by the crab tortellini, nurtured by the grilled hake. Companion had the pappardelle and capriccioso pizza which were superb too. Neither of us are actually big fans of Italian cuisine, BUT by the end of this dinner, I was ready to propose to Italy for marriage and kiss the chef. Thank you for reminding us of the magic of Italian cuisine! Will certainly return with friends!Jack Lee, Google Review
