Pleasant enough, but extremely small portions. The lemon tart was bland , told the waiter but not too interested

My Italian friend recommend this restaurant as it's his favorite Italian restaurant in London. Conveniently located walking distance from the High Street Kensington tube station, the food here was delicious. Service was provided by caring servers who spoke fluent Italian.

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon. It was a toss up between here and the Italian restaurant, which was part of a chain opposite. This looked interesting and we liked the decor. The staff were pleasant and we were soon served. There was a...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

An eccentric Italian restaurant in the heart of London���s upmarket Kensington, Arcadia is a welcome change from the hushed atmosphere and all-white d��cor of the area���s usual dining offerings. Bright and outlandish, the surroundings here at Arcadia are anything but neutral, with murals on the walls, quirky colour schemes and character aplenty. Likewise, the service is friendly and cheerful, the staff laughing along with guests as they dart from table to table, serving food and topping up wine glasses. Arcadia���s bustling kitchen is the origin of an all Italian menu of authentic classic dishes, all with a homemade, traditional flavour with most items made in house, including the fabulous hand-prepared pasta featured in a wide array of the dishes. A bit of a hidden gem amongst the many typically Kensington-friendly restaurants, the Arcadia is packed with personality and authenticity, providing its guests with an always memorable fun and colourful dining experience including high quality food, a good selection of drinks and a relaxed atmosphere.
