A small and intimate restaurant with a stylish and contemporary interior, located in the heart of Notting Hill Gate.
The mandarin coloured banquettes, the wood grain panelling, the candle light tables and the small backlit bar makes it smart without being overly 'designer'.
The menu features dishes from all regions of Italy; we choose the best recipes to match the seasonal offerings. We take pride in choosing genuine ingredients from Italy whenever possible, to create fresh, tasty and beautifully presented food as if we where in Italy.

Best Italian meal in Rome, I mean Florence, I mean London. I love the staff they were on the serve you right team - no pecking order just everyone making your experience special, The food is incredible the place was quiet as I was early for dinner, there were about 75% locals there not tourists which was nice. And was a sign to me they have good food regularly.more
Still my favourite Italian in Notting Hill. Very friendly staff. Pasta are always fresh and delicious. Child friendly, we return again and again.more

I had the veal saltimbocca. Very tender and flavorful. The rest of the table had the ravioli(pretty good),...more
I'm not overly impressed with Essenza for two reasons: (1) service is horrible and (2) food is not that great.
We made a reservation for May 7th at 8pm. My husband happened to double check online around 6pm the day of and noticed that his reservation said May 10th. He called and they confirmed that they had our reservation for May 7th. We arrive, no reservation, or at least we can...more
My friend is a huge fan of Mediterrano and was oh so disappointed when they turned us away on a Thursday evening because they were too busy.

Unfortunately, it wasn't the most ideal table since it was right by the door and got a bit crowded...more
