At the Design Museum end of Kensington High Street, Enoteca Rosso offers a classical Italian dining experience. The restaurant’s menu of Italian comfort food is the perfect antidote to the chilly festive season – think freshly made pasta dishes, Italian cheeses and charcuterie, and an exclusively Italian wine list.
For those looking to book a Christmas function, Enoteca Rosso comes equipped with spaces available for events and private hire. One option is to hire out the restaurant in its entirety – best suited to large parties, Enoteca Rosso can host up to 80 guests for a sit-down dinner, and 150 for a standing reception.
If you’re organising something a little more intimate, you can instead opt to hire The Vault, which is Enoteca Rosso’s basement private dining space. The Vault features walls lined with bottles of wine (the space doubles up as the restaurant’s wine cellar) and can accommodate 12 seated guests or 25 standing.
Alternative spaces include the semi-private wine and window galleries, or the stage, which each accommodate a handful of guests for either seated or standing functions.
During the festive season, the restaurant offers a four-course seasonal menu, with wine pairing available for an additional cost. Dishes might include the tempting likes of pappardelle with lamb ragout and fresh thyme, or crab ravioli with tomato confit. Veggie and vegan options are available, while dessert sees a festive panettone served with mascarpone and hazelnut cream. Go on – treat yourself, it is Christmas after all.
