Spaghetti House Kensington High Street located at the top of the High Street, in this leafy residential area opposite Kensington Gardens & walking distance to the Albert Hall
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!

Reliable pasta and pizza. Oddly they had not received the booking from OpenTable. But it was early and there was no problem

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.

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?)

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.

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

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!!

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.
