Review on Riccardo's Restaurant
This charmingly atmospheric Kensington bolthole has established quite a reputation and cult following over the last decade. It's the best sort of neighbourhood home-from-home, offering great value, infectiously charming, super-friendly service and gutsy Italian food.
But Riccardo's isn't just another well-worn trattoria; it made its name by serving 'Tuscan tapas' – little dishes designed for sharing and grazing. The advice is to order around three dishes per person and tuck in at will. Meatballs, char-grilled courgettes with mushrooms, carpaccio of tuna, superb 'pappa pomodoro' (tomato soup) are typical offerings, alongside steaks, pasta (tagliatelle with venison ragoût), lamb cutlets and desserts such as tiramisù. The conservatory/terrace is a pleasing summertime bonus.
