Spaghetti House Kensington High Street
This little restaurant is a perfect mix of traditional & modern, small enough to be very intimate but still very atmospheric. You will feel at home sipping a cappuccino or having a drink with friends, if it's a full meal you're after, the menu includes sharing dishes, all the Italian favourites, quality fresh Salmon, juicy steaks, pasta & delectable pizza. As all dishes are freshly cooked to order you can enjoy true home cooked Italian delights, every time.
For a finale enjoy a scrumptious dessert & Illy coffee, some would say one of the best quality coffees in the world!
Good meal and service in pleasant surroundings. Convenient location for Albert Hall.
Reliable pasta and pizza. Oddly they had not received the booking from OpenTable. But it was early and there was no problem
A good restaurant at a sensible price, close to the Albert Hall in Kensington. Really good service and delicious food. Will definitely return.
Absolute gem of a place. Fantastic authentic Italian food served with a smile
Nice restaurant , not to big so felt more personal than a larger chain restaurant. Good service and lovely food , would eat there again if in area .
Went here as a party of 4 for an early dinner before Carols at the Royal Albert Hall. We ordered a bottle of wine and we each had starters, mains and I had dessert. We had coffees too. Good value and cosy, the food was OK except one dish was exceptionally hot (chilli) and inedible which was disappointing. I tasted it (my wife's dish) and food should never be that spicy. I was also waiting a bit longer for my dessert which was cold so there should have been no wait necessary. I would definitely go here again as the other food was very nice and Spaghetti House is authentic and generally reliable.
Always a pleasant atmosphere and friendly service
Basic set menus, but excellent food!
Staff very friendly and you didn’t feel rushed at all.
Toilets are based under the restaurant and you have to negotiate some very narrow stairs to get to them, certainly not suitable for disabled people (didn’t notice if they had a disabled toilet upstairs?)
Excellent service, great food. Lovely staff. Would recommend.
Close to Albert Hall. Nice atmosphere. Good service, nice menu pleasant staff.
This was not our first visit to Spaghetti House Kensington. An ideal place for pre-Albert Hall dining as the service is fast and efficient and it is very close (2 stops by bus and an easy 10-15 minute leisurely
walk) to the Albert Hall. We had pre-booked and I recommend all patrons to do so as it's a busy area and many restaurants cater for museums and events in and around Kensington so that lunchtime and pre-theatre times are at a premium. The toilets are not disabled accessible - there are some stairs. Changes to menus are happily accommodated where possible without any fuss. We'll be back!
We stopped by here for an evening meal before a business meeting as it offered a variety of choices on the menu. The atmosphere was great; plenty of room between tables; and you could move around quite easily. The staff were fantastic, friendly, and very attentive. The food was brought out quickly and was very good.
The service was good, and the staff were friendly and polite. However the food was really average. I ordered the chicken tagliatelle which was meant to come in a creamy sauce, but it was not creamy at all. My wife ordered the penne arabiatta and the pasta was uncooked. When we informed the staff they just asked the chef to cook it more, saying we wanted it "more well done". We still got charged the full amount for it on the bill.
Great service with a smile! Very nice food as expected
We went here for the pre-marathon dinner to make the usual carb load. We had a lot of pasta which was really well cooked as an Italian can expect. Service was fine and really fast as we asked.
Booked this lovely restaurant after reading other reviews, we were not disappointed. We wanted somewhere to eat prior to a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, the staff were very welcoming & friendly, food absolutely delicious, good choices on the menu for food & drink, and reasonably priced considering it’s the West End. It’s approx 10 mins walk from High Street Kensington tube station & 10 mins from the Albert Hall. Perfect
Visited after trip to the royal Albert Hall. A lovely meal and we were well looked after. Great for kids too.
Attending event at Royal Albert Hall and chose restaurant for proximity to venue. Advised staff we had only one hour for dinner and received prompt, friendly service without feeling rushed.
Polite and friendly staff. Prompt service. Quaint and cosy venue
Lovely food and friendly staff. We were the last ones there but never felt like staff were waiting for us to leave..
Exactly as anticipated, and what was on menu. Well cooked and presented. Timing about right.
Great little Italian restaurant close to Royal Albert Hall, very welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. Food was very good, all round great experience.
nothing special, the food was good, no ambiance at all
Very friendly host on arriving. Felt at ease. Great food. Handy for RAH. Will revisit.
We have been visiting Spaghetti House for many years when visiting London, this one for the last couple of years. The staff are always friendly, the food is gorgeous in a pleasant atmosphere, and good value
Can't recommend enought
Way below normal standard. Much confusion amongst staff - maybe new? Disappointing
Love the lasagne
Excellent meal, seasonal special crab linguine was great, excellent service
The staff were really friendly and the food was nice, the wine was also really nice. The dessert portions were extremely large, almost too big but I still ate it all so I can't really complain. I would go again.
Were here on Sunday lunchtime before walking (10 mins) to Royal Albert Hall to see the legendary Phil Collins! Arrived at 4.00 pm and explained to waiter we wanted a 'long' lunch.... it was perfect - no rush whatsoever. We sampled zucchini/deep fried mozzarella/brucetta/salami for starters - all fab! Mains went for carbonara/spag Bol/pasta with toms and chills - took advantage of small portions as wanted desserts too! There was more than enough and all delicious! Desserts were awesome (chocolate meringue/creme caramel/proffita rolls - fab! All staff Italian and friendly - would definitely recommend - very reasonable and would return again if ever back
In The area!! Thankyou!!
Great service, prompt meal and but a good option for dining just 10 minute walk to Albert Hall.
A nice restaurant with a good relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff and nice food.
We booked for lunch before going to Albert Hall for a concert as it was close (10 minute )walk.
Food was delicious and service very good although need to allow at least 90 minutes for a 2 course meal plus 30 minutes to get to Albert Hall and find seats.
Met up for lunch before Cirque at Royal Albert Hall. Very convenient, quick efficient service, no hanging around , very good food and only 10 minutes walk from venue. Would definitely recommend. We booked at 1 pm and had more than enough of time to get to 3pm matinee
The food was authentic Italian and staff very thoughtful. Very good value for the food. Generous portion for pasta. Il pranzo era buonissimo, come mangiare a casa con un buon vino!
Lovely casual vibe...attentive staff..quick service.. Good experience overall
This was a great place and it suited our needs perfectly just before an evening concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The food and service were without fault and I would highly recommend this authentic Italian restaurant.
A very nice place for dinner before a visit to the Albert Hall
Decent food and friendly service, but quite noisy with a fair number of young children at lunchtime
