Restaurant description

With views out over Hyde Park and the gardens of Kensington Palace, Brunello is a beautiful restaurant in the Baglioni Hotel. Filled with ornate 1950's style, luxurious Italian recipes and afternoon teas are artfully crafted, while the bar is the perfect setting to enjoy old-time Italian cocktails and fine wines.

The Brunello menu is overseen by chef Alberto Rossetti, and features an irresistible selection of signature dishes. Black truffle risotto is served with 24-month aged parmesan, while Sicilian-style chicken with aubergine, pine nuts and raisin caponata is a great example of simple, gourmet flavours. For those looking for laid-back, light options, the bar menu offers up small plates of imported cold cuts and cheese, as well as nibbles like smoked salmon with focaccia bread and fresh cream cheese.

Brunello in Kensington offers afternoon teas with unique Italian twists, including sweet treats like cannoli Siciliani filled with ricotta cheese and chocolate chips, and glasses of prosecco and champagne. A selection of fine wines and Italian cocktails are also served up at the bar.

Also serving gourmet kids' menus, Brunello is a wonderful venue to celebrate special occasions. High Street Kensington Rail Station is just an 8-minute walk away.

    Excellent location for the Albert Hall. Super staff and ambience. However, for the fixed price menu sadly the belly pork,although presented nicely, was partly inedible, undercooked as a slow cooked belly pork should be and certainly not a melt in the mouth dish as was expected. Hopefully this was a two off! The nicoiese salad starter was excellent. Perhaps better next time to test them on good traditional Italian fare.

    The restaurant was tastefully decorated for Christmas. We loved hearing the piano being played in the background. The tables are nicely separated so you are not crammed in with other diners.

    This was our first visit to Brunello and we enjoyed it very much. We were looking for a quality restaurant to eat before attending a concert at the RAHall at 7.30pm. This place is ideal (10 mins walk away) The fixed price menu available till 7pm was good value and a glass of fizz and very good bread. Menu choice was understandably limited but the quality of food exceptional and good portions too. The staff were excellent and very attentive knowing we were leaving sharp. Will certainly be going again . RB

    The food and staff here were amazing! It was lovely to be offered some gorgeous bread at the start of the meal.

    Had the set menu which seemed like excellent value. Lovely bread & delicious Sicilian olive oil. Amuse bouche also delicious. Starters excellent but mains not so good. Risotto was like rice pudding (without any flavour) and pasta also bland. Staff handled our complaint well. Think the head chef was off that night (Sunday)!

    We were so impressed with this restaurant, which is situated in a very smart hotel opposite Hyde Park. The service was outstanding, as was the food, and we have eaten in some very nice restaurants around the world. The set menu offers exceptional value for money. We were offered complimentary bread and oil, and the bread came in three delicious varieties. We were even offered more but couldn't manage it. We were also given an amuse bouche which was also delicious. I couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough, and we will definitely return.

    Very good pre-theatre meal from the somewhat limited pre-theatre menu. Lovely ambiance, good size portions and reasonable price for a two course meal. I would think it could get quite expensive if you were to choose a-la-carte. The only negative point was the Tiramisu was still frozen in the middle. Not something I'd expect from a restuarant of this class. The waiter was very good and offered a replacement and gave us free tea/coffee.
