Squaremeal Review of Osteria Basilico ?

‘Osteria’ is an apt description of this Notting Hill institution, where diners are treated to unpretentious cooking served by a friendly ‘host’ in a bucolic setting of antique pine dressers, dried flowers & scrubbed wooden tables, that hasn’t changed since the early 90s. Pile your plate with appetising morsels from the antipasti buffet, or opt for starters ranging from deep-fried calamari to smoked mozzarella. Pizzas are the real deal with thin crusts & traditional toppings although pasta is the true star: exemplary spaghetti alla vongole with cherry tomatoes makes you realise how good this seafood classic can be. Secondi of char-grilled tuna or lamb cutlets with rosemary sauce are made with prime ingredients, with price tags to match – stick to pasta & a glass of house wine if you want change from £20.

To get there is a challenge...
