About Norma

Norma is a contemporary and provocative restaurant, inspired by the food and culture of Sicily with particular emphasis on the Moorish influences on the Island’s cuisine. The celebrated Chef, Ben Tish is at the helm.

Norma embodies the celebrated old-school Italian hospitality and charm, taking inspiration from the grand café culture found in Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and celebrates the richly influenced cuisine of the Island.

Set across three floors of a characterful townhouse on Charlotte Street in London’s Fitzrovia, the first two floors are dedicated to the restaurant and a cocktail bar, with the top floor a private dining space.

The main menu features modern Sicilian-inspired dishes using seasonal Italian and British produce, from a selection of anti-pasti and pastas, to larger grilled meat and fish dishes. Upstairs in the private dining room, guests can order large family-style sharing dishes.

We love the food and the restaurant. The first time we came the service was great and was one of the reasons we returned. Last night it was all over the place. Really sweet staff but not managed properly. We ended up serving our own wine and they got several of our orders wrong! But I'd still go again!

We met our friends here for the first time after lockdown and it was a truly lovely experience. Only reason why a 4-star for atmosphere was because Norma was not as full as it deserves to be. We will be back!

Lovely evening with amazing food and even better service. But felt a bit off that we were in earlier than most and on one of the worst tables even despite mentioning that it was for a special occasion. After an hour the restaurant filled up with other couples on much bigger tables that were spaced out from the walkway that we were on so it felt that everyone wallked within inches of our table and we had no space. But will hopefully come back once distancing has relaxed and we can justify returning as the food and service was lovely

Warm, wonderful hospitality. Lovely al fresco table on a summers night. Every dish was incredible. Lamb fat crudo, fresh cornish sardines with sweet tomato pickle, lamb fat crudo that melts in your mouth, fresh sea bream and the creamiest tiramisu. Beautiful Sardinian rose wine. Everything was fantastic. Love this place, always good.

My table was sticky and dirty and twice I asked it to be cleaned. An uneasy issue during these difficult Covid times where everybody is cleaning. I asked for olive oil and it never came. No salt and pepper and I asked twice. Finally it arrived but I had finished my meal. Food came at various intervals rather than together. I found the food excellent but the service poor.

We had an incredible night, everything was perfect and the barmaid even made home made lime cordial for a special drinks request. Couldn't fault the staff one bit.

I took my boyfriend to Norma for his birthday , Neither of us had been there before and it was a surprise for him. The Sicilian cuisine was to die for gorgeously delicious!!!! The interior was beautiful, Moorish of design and the service and hospitality was impeccable. I actually can’t wait to go back, nor can he. :)

Your system is still sending out ridiculous emails despite you being shut. You really are annoying.

Private dining room is such a treat. Lovely share platters and an excellent wine cellar to match. Knowledgable friendly staff. We loved our visit, probably the last group to do so in this crazy Covid time

We had a family celebration in the private dining room. Food and service really were exceptional, and we had a lovely evening.
