Portobello Ristorante Pizzeria 1

Squaremeal Review of Portobello Ristorante Pizzeria ?

They take pizzas seriously at this lively venue, which attracts a motley crew of celebrity neighbours, regulars & tourists. The slow-rising sourdough takes 42 hours to prepare before being baked in a custom-built oven to give an airy texture & crisp crust, while toppings tick all the usual Parma ham/mozzarella boxes. If you’re famished – or looking to share – then order by the metre. There’s also a daily selection of fresh seafood such as sea bass, bream & squid, which are simply grilled & doused in olive oil & fresh mint for a taste of southern Italy. The rustic-style dining room can get rammed at weekends, so book ahead or be prepared to give your table back after 90 minutes. A large, heated terrace ensures a regular turnover on fine days.

With a name like Portobello London – and yes, this new ristorante does straddle the corner of Portobello Road, one expects a great glut of Portobello tourist tat and enough Union Jacks to keep a BNP member happy for life. Not at all. True, there’s nothing particularly uber-cool about this W11 Italian, but there’s nothing offensive about the decor either. In fact, it positively brims with warmth, with honey-hued stonework and pale wood furniture – and there’s a glorious smell of herby dough being...

I normally don't review restaurants, but I must say I've had the freshest , tastiest wild Seabass ever @ this place last week. All-Italian super-friendly service & an excellent value for money! will definitely go back to “Portobello”…

this is my new favorite : fresh, yummy seafood & crispy pizzas, excellent value for money & always a great deal of specials to choose from. the only drawback is it's rather small , so had to book several days in advance to get a table on a week-end.

I'm Italian and I totally agree with you guys! It's such a shame to keep our BAD habits when we've got a chance to change and to learn from other cultures. The manager/staff of this restaurant are not clear about the difference between being professional and being friendly(or at least pretend to be). In this case it's a real shame because food is proper italian food and pizza is great! Lets put it this way…this is one of the example of the old style Italian migration culture. You go in a different...

I've been in this restaurant a couple of times with my girlfriend and it has been always amazing, great food, lovely staff and excellent value!!! Last time has been Saturday the 7th of May and something went wrong that night: I arrived around 8:30pm with no reservation so I knew I had to queue for a while to get a table outside. The place was completely messy, there was a tall guy with grizzly hair trying to manage the place with no results, he told me I had to wait 30 minutes for a table for 2 outside:...

Date of reservation: Friday 13th May Having visited Portobello Pizzeria a number of times over the last year, I was excited to suggest to my friend that I take her for a delicious pizza and a bottle of wine after work on Friday. I made the reservation for 6:45pm and we were seated in doors (I was not told that outdoor seating was available at the time of booking, which was a shame). After just a couple of minutes the waiter came to take our wine order – we thought this was very quick and felt...

Went there without a reservation. The manager knows me because I live in the neighborhood and went there a few times already. The restaurant was fully booked but he managed to give us a table. Unfortunately the manager kicked us out of the table after 90 minutes or so while we were talking. At no point were we warned that we had the table for a certain amount of time. He might have sold an additional meal that night but he definitely lost a customer, who is a neighbor and therefore with a great chance...

Sadly this restaurant's success is causing them major logistical problems in their tiny ground floor kitchen. A great shame because our first meal there soon after it opened was good and the location and ambience is too. We arrived just after 9.00am and had ordered by 9.15pm. The last of the four main courses (chicken with pasta) arrived at 10.25pm! The bill was £131.63 including the £14.63 service charge. They brought one desert and a sundae glass full of whipped cream by way of apology… Their...

    Dips Dines :: Portobello Ristorante Pizzeria - Favourite Pizza in Town | Dips Dines

    With more than 10 visits to Portobello Ristorante Pizzeria under my belt, i can comfortably say they make my favourite pizza in London. The family run neighbourhood restaurant makes its delicious pizzas from slow rising sourdough bread (which apparently takes 42 hours to prepare) and i can only assume this is what gives it an outstanding taste and texture.

    The venue is relatively small and unassuming, located on the corner of Ladbroke Grove just a minute walk from Notting Hill Gate tube station and can be easily missed. Make sure to book ahead, as it’s often very busy, especially at the weekends...
