Ottoemezzo is a really fun, unorthodox place. Set over two floors with an almost cave-like lower ground floor dining room and with more less intimate tables at street level, the atmosphere is the star here. Just off Kensington Square, the setting is very hush-hush and truely romantic. Equally fun for a dinner with out-of-town visitors for “something different”. The food is perfectly fine without hitting any exquisite high notes as one could expect at other famous Italian eateries in London. This really is the only nagging I have: the setting, service and atmosphere are great but somehow the food seems to combine what seem like rather exquisite ingredients with an overall slightly underwhelming result. However, as indicated above this is not as much a foodie destination as one for a soaking up a special atmosphere otherwise only found behind unmarked doors in Milan, Rome or Verona.
