Our Story

Osteria Basilico has a typical rustic Italian Osteria setting, matched by home cooking like you would expect to eat in Italy is the key to the success of the restaurant.

Set in the heart of the thriving and bustling area of Notting Hill and parallel to Portobello Market.

With friendly service and a buzzy atmosphere and tables spilling out onto the street.

Since 1992

Established in 1992 and ever since has been extremely popular with the eclectic local residents, business people and families.

For the menu the greatest care is taken by the chef in choosing the freshest ingredients according to season. The home made buffet, pizzas and pastas are a good choice for vegetarians.

Booking a table is strongly recommended.

Mediterraneo and Essenza are our sister restaurants and are located in the same street. They are a good alternative if we are full.

Children are welcome and a takeaway service is also available.
