Second visit to Da Mario Kensington

by - April 11, 2022

So we visited Da Mario Kensington for the second time.
I went for a different starter this time 'Avocado E Gamberetti su rucola con salsa rose'. Which was avocado and prawns on rocket leaves with pink sauce.

The other starter was 'Pan el pomodoro e erbe mista'. Pizza bread with fresh tomato, fresh basil, sliced garlic, rosemary and oregano.

Both quite simple dishes but absolutely delicious. One thing about this restaurant is everything is so full of flavour!

For the main I went for the same pasta dish as the first visit, purely because it was so delicious I wanted to try it again!

I had Spaghettini Sapore Di Mare which had squid, baby prawns, mussels, octopus, king prawns in a cherry tomato sauce fused with garlic - making the perfect pasta sauce.

The other pasta dish is Spaghetti Aglio, Olio E Pomodorini. With an
olive oil dressing infused with garlic and chilli with cherry tomatoes. I can't eat chilli so I can't personally vouch for the taste, however it looks beautiful and it's a favourite for when we visit.

We had a pizza as a side dish this time just so we could sample their famous pizzas. We chose Margherita with mozzarella, parmigiano and basilico. Again a rather simple dish to save the decision making between the toppings between us.


The dessert was a chocolate sorbet. We picked that one as I am a big chocolate fan anyway, but I'd never tried a chocolate sorbet before. It wasn't as sweet as ice cream but had a very intense chocolate taste without all of the dairy to do the talking. Highly recommend!

This restaurant is my favourite in London so far for fresh, proper Italian food that is just unmatched. The prices are good too, with starters ranging from around £5 to £10. The mains are also reasonable prices with my main being £16.90 and the main pizza was £10.90.

The restaurant was a short walk away from the hotel where we stayed, the area was perfect for the walk before and after dinner.

  1. London is my favorite place I've ever visited. Honestly, I just loved it and would love to go back one day, but I have a long list of places I'd love to see too. Anyway, this place sounds amazing and I was initially very drawn to the pizza but when I read about the seafood pasta that you choose, I instantly wanted to give that a try. SOund like the perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal without breaking the bank. Win -win!
