The owners of Locanda Ottoemezzo Italian restaurant in London’s Kensington, just a few moments’ walk from the High Street, are film aficionados extraordinaire. In particular, their admiration of Federico Fellini’s masterpiece 8 ½ has inspired them to name their delightful restaurant after it and to decorate the interior with 8 1/2 – themed details. The general vibe of this charming and accomplished neighbourhood restaurant is vibrant and warm and full of colour with collectors’ details like rare LPs, books, instruments and a precious 1963 poster of the film. Yet there’s nothing gimmicky about Locanda Ottoemezzo. The perfect house risotto is always on the menu here served with a theatrical flourish from a rind of parmesan.

    Great cozy restaurant. The food was super and the atmosphere great. The restaurant has a movie theme with posters from old movies, mostly Italian, on the walls. They also, apparently show movies upstairs on a regular basis. The service was pleasant and attentive. Overall a 5-star.

    It was disappointing. Previously, I had a lovely risotto in a big cheese ball for lunchtime twice. I told about it and when my friend from Japan came to visit me , he wanted to eat that , so I booked for Sunday lunch . I also wrote that in the request section of Opentable booking . But when we got there and asked for it , they said they can’t do it as they haven’t prepared for it . Also the rest of the menu was very limited . There was no seafood pasta or pizza . The only sea food available was calamari and octopus for the starter , both of which were very very small portions

    The food was prepared exquisitely, the tomahawk veal was a shining dish. The ambience was very bohemian and not my style.

    An Italian treasure hidden in Kensington, not far from the Royal Albert Hall !!! Authentic delicious food (even better than in Italy !), in particular with the risotto presented in a huge parmesan cheese where the chef serves you while scraping the cheese volume with a big spoon ! And what a locely surprise when they brought a vinyl record player with my desert (and a candle over it) to sing an old "happy birthday" song on the vinyl disc for my birthday !
