These are Italians who understood food and love food. They take for granted other fake Italian restaurants can only dream of. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Met some old friends and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service was perfection!!
Beautiful food, in taste and in presentation. Service was also great.
OUtstanding service and food. Perfect end to our European vacation.
Fabulous staff and food. We had a Celiac in our group and they took a lot of trouble. We only had an hour for dinner and the service was quick and the food delicious. Would definitely go back there again 10/10
Great meal when out on a business trip. Very busy but managed to find us a table. Thank you
Most enjoyable night, food was very good, starter of squid and mushroom excellent, however the prawns in my linguine dish were tasteless and I thought had been froze. that was the only negative on the night.
Excellent meal, lovely people.
So good, authentic and welcoming, I will be going back for sure!
I wouldn’t come back to this place. The restaurant itself is quite nice but food wasn’t good. We were served the antipasti without bread, the mains were very difficult to digest and desserts weren’t nothing special.
Great traditional Italian restaurant very good prompt service and lovely food slight problem with the bill corrected immediately
Very well located for Holland Park Opera
This is a real gem of a restaurant serving no nonsense, great Italian food. We started with the burrata, had the excellent calves' liver and a fabulous saltimbocca and finished with an affogato and a tiramisu. Everything was beautifully cooked. We chose a very good Valpolicella from the extensive wine list. Service was really friendly and efficient. Prices are quite high, which isn't surprising for the location, but the quality of the food and wine justified the final bill.
Gem of an Italian in High Street Kensington . Love the ambience and service and last but not the least, food. Definitely not a stuffy place. Staff are attentive and service is fast & smooth. No wonder, the restaurant has been there from so many years.Don’t forget to reserve before going.
Yes it was very good indeed. Staff were great and food was lovely.
Great food, good service and a lovely little restaurant. Liked how there was a limited choice of food which means they really care about what is served. Will definitely go again.
Fantastic lunch, great, friendly service. Lovely for families and couples alike. The food was plentiful and very tasty. Would throughly recommend and happily visit again.
Never fails to impress. Wonderful food and friendly efficient service.
Il Portico was both elegant and reassuringly warm and homely. The staff were wonderfully welcoming,
Informed and attentive throughout the evening. And the food was delicious - very fresh, well-sized portions, with enough but not too much choice. It was perfect for a birthday meal out, but clearly there were regulars there for whom it is their local/ preferred choice giving it a really agreeable and friendly ambiance. It’s an understated jewel. Thoroughly recommend.
Great Italian food, Italian owned and proud of the food and it shows. We had great service. We will go back again.
Authentic good Italian food and wine. Great dinner with my wife
Table booked for 2pm, arrived bang on time. By 2.10pm we were being pressured to choose our food as the kitchen was about to close. Starters arrived promptly, mains arrived as we were still eating the starters because the kitchen had to close. At no point in the online booking process was there any indication that food had be ordered by 2.15pm and that it had to be on the table by 2.30pm. The waiter was somewhat apologetic but this is shocking customer service. I was then charged £13 per glass for two glasses of red wine - the waiter asked whether I wanted a light or full bodied red and I said full but at no point did he show me the relative costs of these choices and certainly didn't highlight that I'd made an expensive choice. I accept that I should have clarified the cost of my choice and clearly took my eye off the ball given the pressure we were under to order the food. Ever felt you've been had? I do. What should have been a relaxed leisurely lunch turned out to be exactly the opposite.
Fantastic food and atmosphere, a lovely experience
A Very enjoyable experience. Informal yet attentive environment in which to spend an evening.
Always a satisfying evening when dining at Il Portico.
Staff does not seem to care about customers. Food is either bland or over seasoned.
I was advised to go to Il Portico by a colleague. It is a lovely posh neighbourhood restaurant with a sedate atmosphere. The waiters knew most of the elderly Kensington residents who came in while I was there. I found it slightly difficult to find a light lunch meal on the menu as I wasn't in the mood for pork belly with my pasta but they were very kind and made us a plain tomato sauce pasta.
The service was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. The recommendations for food and wine was spot on.
Came here for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was perfect! The service was top notch and the food was something we talked about long after it was completely consumed.
fab traditional italian with table cloths, lovely place for a chat with friends
When arrived at the restaurant we were greeted immediately with smiles and friendliness, we were seated even though we are about 15-20 minutes early for a reservation. The staff is friendly, helpful, and overall excellent. We highly recommend this wonderful Italian restaurant while visiting London. The food was so good. The duck was cooked to perfection and the pasta was fresh and fabulous.
This is always a great local... a perennial favourite that happily keeps on going. Warm and friendly staff and delicious food, thanks guys.
We could sense that there was no interest by the staff to make us feel like home. Service was expeditive. Red wine was to warm. Very commercial. You could find much better italian in London. This is a has been place.
Busy evening, restaurant was full. Very quick service. Food was excellent, but a bit pricey!
GREAT everything! This was our 'regular' visit whenever we are in London, and continues to exceed all our expectations.
I liked this place. Simple Italian cooking, friendly and quick service. My only disappointment was the lack of any game on the menu!
Splendid Italian friendliness, great evening .
Food very good as well
Since moving away from London we only get to visit IL Portico once or twice a year. Always excellent , Veal chop and Calves liver outstanding, Pinot Grigio as it should be. An outstanding Family owned local restaurant.
Great Ambient and food wonderful host , would defiantly must do again east to reach very close to high street Kingston station
Good food, but expensive to be italian. Not the best service the day we were there, they seemed uninterested.
Excellent food and service, I had the calf’s liver it really need to come with some kind of vegetable or salad, but it was excellent otherwise
