Zagat London continuously brings up what’s best to eat in London… And here’s one place that I think they got it spot on
Osteria Basilico offers classic italian cooking such as freshly cooked pasta dishes, pizza and antipasti… Located on Kensington Park Road where there is Rossopomodoro just across the street, the place just screams you have to come and try
With a restaurant run by an italian family and his team.. The food surely won’t disappoint.. First up let see what I had
First, creamy burrata with parma ham… Deliciously creamy and soft cuts by the well cured parma ham, salty and flavoursome best goes hand in hand with the burrata.. And the mini rosemary bread the serve prior to the dish is warm and delicious
Next beef cappaccio with pesto, shaved parmesan and rocket.. Tender beef, parmesan and rocket adds that nice bite to the dish.. The pesto really compliments it all well, a first for me
When here, you have to get the truffle dishes.. Tonight i got fresh black truffles pasta with rosemary infused cream sauce and italian sausage pizza with truffles
Both dishes really made the black truffles stand out.. The pasta is cooked to aldente.. Perfect and the truffles they didn’t go easy on that.. The pizza was packed full of flavour but the downside that caused the dough to be abit too wet..
Last but not least, the grilled lamb chop with aubergines and rosemary jus… Tender, savoury lamb accompany by the soft and lightly charred aubergine is a perfect combination that let a hint of rosemary to come out.. Delicious..
Osteria Basilico for me is one of the best italian restaurants in town.. The price, the service, the quality of food is just right… Right in the perfect neighbourhood of Notting Hill
