What to do on a Sunday when all of the pubs are busy or you fancy a bit of a change? Mix up your Sunday lunch and head to a lovely little Italian of course!
Cacciari’s has two locations – 82 Old Brompton Road & 82 Pembroke Road, both in Kensington. We headed over to Pembroke road to try out some of the lovely Italian cuisine.
It was very quiet and at one point we even had the place to ourselves, but what do you expect at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon in an area rife with pubs offering Britain’s favourite, the classic “Sunday roast.” However, all we fancied was an Italian so this was perfect.
The menu is Cacciari’s doesn’t just offer your bog standard pasta and pizza, but some lovely meat and seafood dishes too such as; squid, scallops, beef tenderloin, veal and sea bream. You’ll have to check the menu out for yourself here as I could go on and on.
I opted for the spinach and ricotta ravioli (£12.50) which was packed full of garlic (my favourite) and the balance of the ricotta and spinach was just right.
George had the spaghetti carbonara (£9.50), he definitely made the winning decision! It was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The sauce was like no other, intensely creamy and rich but with the right balance of salt too. Many carbonara’s can be overly creamy yet bland, however this definitely packed in some flavour.
They offer some wines by the pot (500ml). We chose the house wine by the pot (£11.25) as we were keen to have a cheaper meal and I have to say it wasn’t too bad. It was no Malbec but definitely worth opting for if you don’t want to break the bank.
Overall this was a lovely little alternative to your typical Sunday lunch and we loved every moment of it. Good service and a wonderful menu!
