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

We discovered this small restaurant off the Kensington High Street and enjoyed dining al fresco on a beautiful summer evening. We started with a special offering of pan seared scallops in a saffron sauce that was delicious. Then I selected the Spaghetti al Cartoccio which was a seafood pasta prepared in a foil basket, while my husband chose another special... More

Great restaurant with good authentically Italian food, a well structured menu and some good Italian wines. We started with the classic bruscatta and burrata, then we had a wonderful spaghetti with "ragù alla bolognese" and pasta with pesto; excellent the fillet too. The decoration inside the restaurant is unusual but the ambience is relaxed and informal. Very friendly and attentive... More

Good food and friendly service here, hiding in that little courtyard along Kens High St. Was too late for outdoor dining, but they have that, and I love that. Lovely decor with painted murals, and a delicious salmon/burrata on toast as my app, with homemade pasta with wild boar sauce for dinner. Highly recommended.

Walked from our hotel. Picked it just because it looked charming and Italian appealed to everyone. The staff was friendly and the food was very good.

Description
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.
