Giovanni Salamone created the Caffè Paradiso concept to give Londoners a genuine taste of his country’s unique Sicilian café culture – not just for its distinctive atmosphere but also its food.
Delicious savouries and patisserie (such as the signature chocolate Torta Paradiso) are handmade to authentic regional recipes, and the ingredients for the addictive gelato are sourced in Sicily and made to a secret recipe in the Olivelli kitchen!

This is the sort of pizza that gets you excited about food. Bellissimo.
The dishes were simply brilliant.
The Culinary Guide
Olivelli in Bloomsbury is bellissima. The restaurant has the sleekly inoffensive good looks (and relaxed atmosphere) of Pizza Express, but the food is in another league. Just don't forget to skip lunch before coming, especially if you want to start in style...

Olivelli has enough individuality and charm to knock the socks off most of its rivals. It has the atmosphere of a traditional trattoria yet it's the food that's really authentic.
London’s stylish Italian eateries include Olivelli with its unique hallmarks: handmade fresh pasta and quality produce sourced from Sicily and nearby markets. You'll also get one of the best pizzas in the capital.

Give yourself up to the sensual pleasures of a special feast at one of Olivelli’s warm-hearted restaurants. It doesn’t get much better.

We ate at Olivelli’s St Christopher’s Place venue the other evening. The vibe in here is great…The menu is regional Sicilian – robust, flavoursome recipes that pack a big serotonin punch. Puds to die for, too.
Olivelli is serious about what it does. It has edged itself cleverly into a proper local Italian restaurant, offering something a little different.
Café Culture Magazine
London’s second Caffè Paradiso (in Bloomsbury) is on two floors with typical treats including authentic Sicilian savouries…and mouth-watering patisserie.
Londoners are spoiled for choice when it comes to the highly recommended ice cream at Caffè Paradiso. Available at two venues – Store Street (in Bloomsbury) and Shad Thames.
