Italian
Located on Notting Hill’s infamous Portobello Road, Lisa’s Italian is brought to you by local and longterm business owners. Lisa's Italian; formerly known as Lisa's Kitchen and Bar, has had a wonderful makeover evolving away from its Scandic roots and delving deep into its Italian ones.

We are excited to welcome you to Lisa's Italian. Here we aim to retain the sophisticated fun and soul of Lisa’s while adding the mouthwatering food and heart of our first home, Italy. We strive to deliver a culinary experience coloured with our Italian roots and childhood memories. Dishes are prepared with the finest ingredients which are carefully selected from our own Italian pantry and dictated by the seasons Italy has to offer, we create authentic, affordable dishes which are made with love.

West is best and so is our Pizza! We invite you to try for yourself.

We sat on the outdoor terrace , I had the fantastic value £10 set lunch , then a tasty tiramisu dessert plus double macchiato .
It was simply the BEST and TASTIEST uncomplicated Italian food I have ever had , and the Tiramisu was the best I have ever tasted !!
Service was excellent too , weather was dry and sunny - so, all in all - a perfect lunch , so big thank you to Lisa’s Italian restaurant !

Really good start, attentive staff and service then it went down hill after once more people arrived. The main course of pasta was all stuck together and too much oil was added, obviously to mask this problem. Also waited about 20 minutes for our plates to be cleared and explain why we didn't eat our food. After complaining, the manager came over and spoke to us kindly and took the food off the bill. Luckily the dessert of chocolate fondant was very good but overall very disappointed...

Very little of what was displayed on the menu was available. The 2 pizzas we were served were chewy and inedible.
The (admittedly very friendly) owner was far too tolerant of a table of loud drunks who shouted and knocked chairs over on two occasions.
The free limoncella we were given did not make up for a very poor dining experience.

The waiter offered us shots once we paid our bill and had a cheeky one with us !

the music was nice and the people, we were literally dancing out of the restaurant !

cant wait to go back and try their cocktails and sit at the back with the natural light coming in!

Great food selection, plates were all very tasty!
The restaurant was busy so you could tell waiters were stretched running around to keep up with requests.
On the overall very good experience but too expensive.
Without the offer “eat out to help out” we would have spent £120 in 2 people for sharing 4 starters, the wine and 2 desserts.
