Great restaurant! Superb fish soup, like in Italy. Nice and relaxed service. Very good value too.

I adore Calici. I had dinner at the Calici twice this week. I highly recommend the tuna with a lovely glass of Pinot Noir. The staff are warm, kind and friendly. They always make me feel so welcome. The wine list is so much fun and with so many wines by the glass i’m always trying something different. Calici is one of my favourite restaurants in north London.

Fantastic new restaurant in Belsize Park. We found there was a large selection of wines to choose from which we’re both affordable and great quality. The food was delicious and although the restaurant was extremely busy, the waiters were still attentive and friendly.

At Calici we are genuinely passionate about Italian produce. Therefore, our dishes are only prepared with fresh and authentic ingredients that are sourced directly from all across Italy. Whether it be Sicilian ricotta or prosciutto from San Daniele, we source them directly from the local producers.


When it comes to wine our philosophy is to import producers that demonstrate a responsible and sustainable approach to viticulture and winemaking. Many of our producers are already working sustainably, making the best possible wine with the least possible intervention in the vineyard and winery.


Come for an aperitif at the Bar. We have over 50 wines by the glass that you can enjoy, whilst snacking on some Cicchetti or indulging in one of our many food platters. We also serve Italian artisan beer and an array of gins and spirits.


Here at Calici, we really do love our ‘dolci' and offer a range of desserts for all sweet lovers. One particular favourite is our signature Tiramisu, straight from its native town of Tolmezzo with the original recipe. Check out our Dessert menu for all our delights
