Considering its location and the all-round quality it offers, Timo is excellent value. No wonder it’s popular with the locals. This being Kensington High Street, locals include Sir David Frost, Boy George, and Sunday Times restaurant critic Michael Winner. Charming owner Piero Amodio is often around to welcome guests into his narrow, serene space elegantly done out with brown and beige chairs, wooden floor, and pale walls supporting artwork of a walled garden. Pasta is where Timo’s kitchen really excels; everyone loves to start with tortellioni filled with braised guinea fowl, beetroot butter and thyme, followed either by ravioli stuffed with ricotta, spinach, butter and sage (lunch menu) or tagliatelle with prawns, asparagus and cherry tomatoes (a la carte). If there’s room, order the chocolate and hazelnut fondant; it’s exquisite.
