After 50+ years in the neighbourhood restaurant business, the Chiavarini family opened 'Pizzicotto' to great acclaim. Opposite Holland Park and the entrance to the new design museum on Kensington high Street, we can be reached anytime on 0207 602 6777

Our Pizza dough is proofed for 72 hours before cooking at 450 degrees in our wood burning oven. We mix our flour by hand, using a combination of '00' Italian flour, stone ground manitoba and whole grain to ensure maximum lightness & flavour. All our pasta is made daily by hand exclusively using free range eggs and Italian flour.

We had a great meal to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant was quiet due to the current situation, but the food and service was outstanding.

Pizzicotto is a great restaurant and pizzeria. It is owned by the family that own Il Portico, the oldest family owned Italian restaurant in London. It has a wonderful history and deserves every compliment. You are very lucky to come across these 2 restaurants. They are very special to us and will always be so.

We love bringing the family here for lunch on the weekend.

Great spot for all. Nice and quick with the food and willing to make think outside the box and make else work to your tastes if you’d like to change an ingredient in a pasta etc

I know a few italian families with very high expectations for great food that also love it here so.. as it has their seal of approval too, I’m even more satisfied!

Owner is also often around and incredibly hospitable and warm.

Everything was clean and nice.

We’ll be back.

Thank you.

Great food. This is the place where you can go every week and never get bored, the pasta, the fish, the pizzas are all very good. All served in a family style ambiance.

My only negative this time around is on service, which was very average: had to call twice to get empty plates removed, and again to ask for the desert menu... not a big deal but a bit disappointing.

Lovely local Italian, very friendly staff who made me feel comfortable during COVID times.

The pizza was lovely and they let us know the table wouldn’t be needed so we could stay the whole evening and have another bottle.

I was looking forward to visiting - it was just ok. However, I think it might have been a bad night as the menu is good and the ambience is nice so I will give it another try. My pizza was extremely salty and my friends pasta dish (ragu) arrived too quickly which made us think it was pre-prepared. The drinks were just ok, and the service was slow - not attentive enough for me. That said, we weren’t rushed and we received a discount owing to the ‘eat out to help out’ scheme so that was nice. I won’t recommend until I’ve visited again as I’m sure this was an off night for them.

Lovely, small and cozy place with great staff. Only issue for me was (and may not be an issue for others) there was only one toilet cubicle and no urinal in the gents meaning you had to wait if occupied. Other than that, highly recommended for an evening of good food, setting and service.

We met up with my daughter and her two kids (one aged 2yrs and the other 2mths) before visiting the Design Museum. The service was wonderful and the pizzas the best I've eaten outside Italy (and we especially loved the bunny shaped pizza for the 2yr old!). We have already recommended the restaurant to the outlaws and we'll visit again when we're back in that neck of the woods!
