We usually do not go to Italian restaurants however we make an exception for L’Amorosa, a Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurant. We have been here FOUR times now. L’Amorosa Restaurant officially opened in 2014 in Ravenscourt Park, West London offering modern Italian cooking seating 40 people inside and 8 people outside.The cosy 2 floor interior has a modern classic style with the top floor having a little more up market feel. It was recognised with a Michelin Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide 2016 and continues to retain this award in 2018. Andy Needham, who is the chef and owner, was previously the former head chef at the Michelin starred Zafferano in Belgravia for 15 years.

Each dish was well presented and it was difficult to choose our favourites. I can say that it was the best pumpkin ravioli I have ever tasted and our friends loved the agnolotti and cervo brasato. The desserts are delightful.
The sommelier recommended the divine Rubillo Italian red wine from Principe Pallavicini, the largest private wineyard estate in Frascati, Italy. It had a deep crimson colour with a lovely aroma, blackcurrant and cherries on the palate. It paired well with our pasta and red meat dishes.
The combination of food, service, value was top notch. We all agreed that this is an Italian restaurant worth returning for. By the way, they even offer gluten free dining! Do call them before hand to let them know your dietary requirements.
