Italian cuisine is traditionally made to be shared among friends and family, and it’s no different at Enoteca Rosso. This charming and classic Italian restaurant serves a menu of homely comfort food, which is well suited to both group dining and private dining.
The restaurant can be found towards the Design Museum end of Kensington High Street and its interiors are industrial chic, featuring exposed pipes, a steel-topped bar and shelves of wine bottles lining the walls. The restaurant also houses a basement private dining room, which is called The Vault. This charming room doubles up as Enoteca Rosso’s wine cellar, so you can expect bottles to line the walls, with the space able to accommodate 12 guests for a sit-down dinner, or 25 for a standing reception.
Alternative spaces are also available, including the semi-private wine and window galleries, or the stage, which each accommodate a handful of guests for either seated or standing functions. The restaurant’s menu majors in Italian cheeses and charcuterie, freshly made pasta dishes and a stellar Italian wine list.
Group menus are available, with Enoteca Rosso serving a four-course feast for private dining groups, as well as having the option to include a wine pairing for an additional cost.
On the menu, you can expect to kick off proceedings with the tempting likes of 24-month aged Parma ham with truffle lardo, or red prawn ravioli resting in a creamy saffron sauce. Larger dishes include pan-fried butter prawns or caramelised duck, while a selection of desserts handpicked by the chef makes for a pleasing end to the evening. Quaint, tasty and affordable, Enoteca Rosso is a discerning choice for group or private dining.
