Get ready for some food porn. This is good Italian food, right here. My favourite Italian restaurant in London is Osteria Basilico in Notting Hill, and to my great pleasure the owners have 2 other restaurants in the same street. The. Same. Street. You can't not love it. I discovered Essenza 2 weeks ago and have already been there 2 times, the food was that good. We had a huge variety of everything, and I am a master at tasting everyone's food so I can vouch for all our food choices.
Whenever I can, I have burrata. It's my without doubt my favourite cheese. It beats mozzarella by several miles because it is smooth, creamy, tasty, and basically amazing. Have some.
So now my favourite Italian restaurant has competition, and there are 2 that share the gold medal. If you want to try some good Italian food, good service, feeling a bit like you are in Italy, and give in to burrata, I suggest either Essenza or Osteria Basilico. Both in Notting Hill.
I'm Christine and I currently live in London with my husband where I do my best to go to as many restaurants as possible, bake, DIY and occasionally let my hair down and go to a museum. x
