I started with a great eggplant baked with tomato, basil, and cheese. It was the perfect size as a starter but can't share. The halibut main was dry and unseasoned accompanied with a sickly sweet lemon sauce. The problem was service ... We felt as if were an inconvenience. They missed a good tip.

If the weather is good sit outside, nice little side road off the bustling Kensington high street. Carpaccio starter was fantastic, the special lobster spaghetti with cream sauce was beautiful. Attentive and friendly staff.

Was not a fan of the bread or salad. Bread did not taste fresh. Salad was dry and flavorless. However our entrees were absolutely delicious. Both of us were in heaven with the entrees. Staff was somewhat friendly but seemed a bit arrogant.

We had Carpaccio and Salad as starters than I had the mushroom risotto and it was excellent. My wife had grilled vegetables. We had a very good bottle of Salice for 23 pounds. The wait staff were very attentive and fun. We were too full for dessert so we settled just for coffee. We will go back!

We had a very nice dinner in a comfortable environment. The food was very good and the service was friendly and professional. We ate outside. The location is off the busy street area so eating outside was pleasant and without busy traffic (in cars or on foot) just beyond your table. Relaxing and tasty.

Not your average Italian restaurant, but one to explore Italian cuisine away from Pizza and Lasagne. The starters were beautiful, Carpaccio di Manzo and stuffed (I think) aubergine. Main courses were Ossobuco alls Milanese, which was wonderful, and Ravioli della Chef. The wine was excellent, a Merlot (not the cheapest), which has to be the finest Merlot I have tasted.... More

Great family run restaurant, had a terrific meal and it was great value for money. The pasta is freshly made and the daily specials are well worth exploring. It was so good we booked for the following evening

An eccentric Italian restaurant in the heart of London���s upmarket Kensington, Arcadia is a welcome change from the hushed atmosphere and all-white d��cor of the area���s usual dining offerings. Bright and outlandish, the surroundings here at Arcadia are anything but neutral, with murals on the walls, quirky colour schemes and character aplenty. Likewise, the service is friendly and cheerful, the staff laughing along with guests as they dart from table to table, serving food and topping up wine glasses. Arcadia���s bustling kitchen is the origin of an all Italian menu of authentic classic dishes, all with a homemade, traditional flavour with most items made in house, including the fabulous hand-prepared pasta featured in a wide array of the dishes. A bit of a hidden gem amongst the many typically Kensington-friendly restaurants, the Arcadia is packed with personality and authenticity, providing its guests with an always memorable fun and colourful dining experience including high quality food, a good selection of drinks and a relaxed atmosphere.
