The service wasn’t good. We couldn’t get our waiter’s attentions. They got our meal wrong and it took a while to correct.
Another very good meal with smooth but unhurried service and a warm welcome
Good neighbourhood Italian, somewhat smarter than the average. Interesting menu - a different game dish each day. Very convenient for Holland Park Opera - if only it opened slightly earlier during the season. Pre-opera it was packed with diners wolfing food down to get there. Some tables outside, though a busy road.
We often go to Il Portico for an early supper ahead of the Holland Park Opera, where it is ideally located! The food is ‘Classic Italian’ with a nice wine list, very welcoming /friendly service, and a good ambiance.
I can recommend IlPortico, without reservation!
The service and food were excellent! Definitely returning!
As always you are warmly welcomed and the wait staff can't do enough to make you comfortable and to explain the menu in details. There are always Specials and the food is absolutely delicious and authentic.
Excellent food.Friendly and efficient service. Good value
We dined at Il Portico for our wedding anniversary, celebrating in London from the US. We loved the entire experience! The food was authentic and delicious! The bottle of wine we ordered paired just right with our dinner! The entire experience was romantic and memorable! Thank you to the wonderful staff for a delightful evening!
Rather love themselves. Over rated and expensive and food was way back on the quality promised in reviews! Disappointing.
I really enjoyed the excellent dinner and the friendly atmosphere. I recommend the reataurant for italian food lovers.
I have been coming here for over 10 years, the family and staff are amazing and the food outstanding. I had not been back in over a year, the menu was new with all my old favorites still there. It is a “must stop” for every visit to London. I will be back again and again.
Amazing experience, we loved everything we ordered.
Really loved restaurant. Food was gorgeous but found service a bit rushed. We were never asked to hurry or leave but plates lifted even though other people at table still eating.
Lovely family run Italian restaurant. The menu was varied and the choices were not the norm (which is good).
The service, friendliness and attentiveness of the staff was second to none.
Excellent food and service. And the staff were super accommodating as we had two toddlers and a baby. We will definitely be going back.
Wonderful homemade pasta - excellent service! Great wine and sitting outside with the heaters was lovely! Don’t miss this gem!
One of the best family run restaurants in London. Good honest food well cooked and served by friendly staff. The Pinot Grigio is excellent.
It was very nice for a business luncheon
Excellent food, service, menu and atmosphere, very highly recommended!
Very lively and authentic atmosphere. Knowledgeable, engaging and efficient staff. Authentic Italian food. Simple and tasty
Wine superb. Service attentive. Food well coked and presented. What's not to like
Fairly good family run establishment. Food variable but with some very good dishes. Good value wine list. Busy but lacks ambiance. tables can be cramped.
Great food and ambience. Been to lunch and dinner and both excellent. Great lively, authentic, friendly spot
Aufgrund der sehr guten Bewertungen hatten wir uns für dieses Restaurant entschieden. Wir wurden auch nicht enttäuscht. Essen und der Wein waren sehr gut. Auch der Service - bis auf eine Ausnahme. Eine weibliche Bedienung vergaß das Bier für meinen Gast und war auch sonst etwas nachlässig. Sonst war aber auch der Service sehr gut. Daher kann ich leider keine kompletten 5 Sterne vergeben.
This restaurant delivers a delicious and authentic Italian meal. It was the closest meal to having been back in Italy that I have found in months! The staff was helpful and attentive and the ambiance was great. I recommend making a reservation to ensure you are able to dine at this wonderful restaurant!
One of the best Italian restaurants in London.
Food brilliant I like to leave a tip not have service charge added not the British way and £19 charged for a glass of rose wine but the food was brilliant and they looked after my son the Italian way which is why I would go back again
A lovely local trattoria. Real home cooked feel. Not cheap but very nice
Lovely little Kensington Italian restaurant! We came across it while visiting from Minnesota on Spring Break. What a nice little gem! Would highly recommend!
a nice family Italian had a lovely fish soup husband had lardo.
Not outstanding but tasty.
I had seafood pasta my husband had a meat dish, 1 glass of wine, 1 Campari and a soda.
the bill came to over £110, very overpriced.
They also charged the service charge which was £10 i didn't want to pay it but my husband was embarrassed not to and did, customers should not be put in this position.
I wouldn't go there again there better restaurants around the area which are reasonable with great food.
We stubbled across il portico whilst staying in the area,what a gem of a restaurant,it’s been a family run restaurant since 1967. The food was lovely and reasonably priced, I had the lamb cutlets ,reared from there own family farm in Kent,delicious!!
Went on a freezing Saturday lunchtime and had a wonderful meal with great service. Highly recommended
Excellent food & wine v friendly service - very full & a touch noisy at times but expected so not unpleasant.
The food was amazing! We had a lovely evening and enjoyed this spot very much! Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu! Thank you very much
Wonderful authentic Italian food served by friendly staff. Always a warm welcome
Great Italian family restaurant. Warm service with all the classics. Quality always reliable. Lovely ambience. A regular favourite.
A wonderful experience. Fantastic food and lovely staff.
A very friendly place, with great cooking and service. Slightly traditional feel - this is meant as a real complement :) Will be going back! Thank you
An excellent Italian family restaurant. Excellent food. Good value. Comprehensive wine list with many good affordable wines. A Kensington institution. Well done.
This is my all time favourite Italian restaurant, I have taken my partner here twice now for dinner on special occasions, and you walk in and you think your in Italy, the service is brilliant, and they really cater for your occasion and make it an experience, the food is very tasty and authentic, I will never forget this gem in London and the people who work there. Thanks again and I am sure we will be back soon!
