Even though they lost our reservation this is still a nice restaurant to catch up with friends. Nice food and a very comfortable atmosphere make for a pleasant time.

We use to love this place even with a rude behaviour of the owner. As we were in London and wanted to take some friends out for a very nice dinner we choose this restaurant. We had made a bookings for upstairs which was confirmed but on arrival found out we will be seated downstairs as the owners friend had... More

Came here during the summer and sat at one of the outside tables - it's a perfect location for it as the street is quiet enough for it to not be disruptive, but busy enough to be good for people watching. The food was an absolute delight! We had pizzas and starters so it didn't work out too expensive, however... More

Very disappointed in this restaurant have been here on many occasions with regular customers and have never experienced such arrogant and bad service and food. My pizza came up cold with a long light coloured hair inside! (I am brunette). Put me off, only eat a few slices. My grandson ordered Milanese and an escalope came up in a sauce... More

On our last night in London we took our study-abroad daughter and her roommates out for a nice dinner (not how they dine when they are on their own.) Osteria was able to take our reservation for five. We had one vegetarian in our group and they took care of her special needs including changing the sauce. Our meals were... More

As a local customer we had pre-booked a table but this didn't stop them quibbling when we called last night to warn them that we'd be 15 minutes late. We were given a small table right in the middle of the busy thoroughfare having specifically requested one at the side. Our drinks arrived and the tonic in both drinks tasted... More

Let me start by saying that food wise this is a great trattoria. No wonder it still stands there after almost 20 years (at least that's how long I have been going there give or take). You can enjoy a casual pizza which is at par with the best freshly oven baked anywhere in Italy or you can go for... More

Sunday night dinner place was packed. The service was terrible. The soup was good. The fish mains were below average. Best to go for a weekday lunch if you must.

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
