SquareMeal Review of Il Portico

Spanning six decades and three generations, this jovial neighbourhood trattoria lays claim to being ‘London’s oldest family-run Italian restaurant’. Executive chef Eduardo Chiavarini recently celebrated 25 years at the stove, and continues to dish up the kind of food that makes his loyal regulars feel warm and content with the world. The faithful come here to sample plates of minestrone lombardo, king prawns ‘aglio e olio’, handmade gnocchi with fresh basil pesto and veal chops with white wine and rosemary – with sides of zucchini fritte, cavolo nero and sautéed potatoes if required. The place is still run with charm and good humour by the owner’s siblings, and the wine list helps things along with familiar bottles from Italy’s better-known wine-making regions.

Outstanding food, impeccable service-an absolute favourite!
04 March 2013  
I've eaten here a few times after so many wonderful recommendations. It did not disappoint and I immediately fell in love with the food, atmosphere and personal service. Whether it's a romantic meal, business lunch or family fun – il portico never disappoints! The handmade food is really something special and the owners make you feel like one of the family. They even remembered my favourite wine and are experts at recommending the perfect dish to accompany it! I couldn't recommend this place enough! Perfect in every way!
