Excellent authentic Italian— well prepared, fine ingredients. Great service. Had awesome risotto. Everyone was please w their meals from wine, starters, mains and desserts. We had variety of cheese, seafood and beef. Highly recommended.

A disaster... The food was good, but the plates were cold so the food was cold before they finished serving! The waiter wasn't interested, in fact we think he left! A very poor experience, and would not recommend it at all...

It is important to distinguish between the cafe and the restaurant next door. The restaurant was still busy when we left. We visited the cafe for a light meal. There were a few other people in when we arrived but it was not busy on...More

My boyfriend and I found this tucked-away restaurant and were able to walk-in without a reservation. We were not disappointed. Having just been in Italy, the food was truly authentic. I had the truffle pasta (amazing) and he had the cheese risotto which they bring...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

The owners of Locanda Ottoemezzo Italian restaurant in London���s Kensington, just a few moments��� walk from the High Street, are film aficionados extraordinaire. In particular, their admiration of Federico Fellini���s masterpiece 8 �� has inspired them to name their delight restaurant after it and to decorate the interior with 8 1/2 ��� themed details. The general vibe of this charming and accomplished neighbourhood restaurant is vibrant and warm and full of colour with collectors��� details like rare LPs, books, instruments and a precious 1963 poster of the film. Yet there���s nothing gimmicky about Locanda Ottoemezzo. Food, service, quality and style are the focus here and you can always expect a delightful dining experience. The perfect house risotto is always on the menu here served with a theatrical flourish from a rind of parmesan. Locanda Ottoemezzo���s fillet of beef in salt crust with aromatic thyme, rosemary and red wine served with wild mushrooms is a favourite, too. Wines and service are exemplary.
