What It Is: High-end Italian inspired restaurant in Notting Hill

Perfect For: Fine Dining, Dinner With Parents, Corporate Cards

This place is casual enough, in that we felt that we could have turned up in jeans and t-shirts (so long as they were our best jeans and our best t-shirts), but we also found everything we expected of a high-end Italian spot. We had ravioli which was filled with rich-people meat, and totally swimming in butter. And then there was butter on top of that. All very tasty of course, but we also paid a pretty hefty price to eat it all, and although the room was a bit cold, it suits the crowd perfectly, and the service was delightful.

Verdict: If Our feeling is, if you’re going to spend this much on a meal - save just a few more pennies and hit up the Ledbury, or Core By Clare Smyth instead. If someone else is paying, do it.

In keeping with the restaurant name, the menu at this upmarket Italian-French spot in Notting Hill is divided into character traits. Starters like crispy veal sweetbread are ‘curious’, the meat dishes are ‘robust’, desserts such as a salted caramel chocolate cake are ‘greedy’, and the cheese platter falls under ‘strong’. Obviously. If you’re not quite sure whether your character is more ‘subtle’ or ‘delicate’ then they have a tasting menu for £78.
