Sightseeing

The Sicilian Avenue

London found in United Kingdom

Sicilian Avenue is a short but beautiful pedestrian zone in the center of London and was built in 1910. So named because a Southern Italian flair comes from its authentic old world charm. Sicilian Avenue is famous for the Spaghetti House, probably the most famous of British-Italian restaurants. Spaghetti House is a chain of Italian restaurants in London. Sitting at a table on a beautiful summer evening outside on the sidewalk and enjoying fine Italian cuisine and Italian red wine is wonderful and gives you the feeling of being in Sicily. Sicilian Avenue has some interesting shops and other restaurants and is an absolute alternative, if you have had enough of the hustle and bustle of the center.
