‘We went here before a matinee at the Lyceum and found it an excellent choice. They are obviously geared to theatre customers so no fear of missing the start of the show. They have found a very good formula of a small menu, very good prices and excellent service. The staff were friendly and very efficient ; the dishes imaginative and tasty.’
This Big Deal at Zucca would be perfect for a pre-theatre bite but could also be used for a lunchtime treat evening meal with friends.
