Como Garden transports guests to the Italian lakes for an unforgettable dining experience
FREE Bottomless Brunch – National Prosecco Day on Saturday 13th August – See details below
Take a trip to Italy right here in the capital, with a visit to Como Garden – the Italian restaurant concept from Emerald Hospitality group spearheaded by dynamic entrepreneur duo twins Arian and Alberto Zandi.
Situated on Kensington High Street, next door to their acclaimed Latin American restaurant Zuaya, Como Garden, takes its inspiration from the picturesque scenery of Italy’s Lake Como and the surrounding areas. The restaurant has become a west end hotspot, with weekend bookings having to be made 2-3 weeks in advance.
The glamorous dining area features classic Italian green and cream hues, marked with eye-catching foliage displays and hanging plants, intended to mirror the botanical gardens of the Lombardy region. This impressive dining room has been evolved to offer an indoor Italian garden experience, so no matter the weather in the UK, you’ll feel you have been transported somewhere else. Take your pick from an array of plush seating set underneath the beautiful green canopies.
Dining at Como Garden
The menu is an Italian feast of deliciousness, featuring classic antipasti tapas like pesto beef carpaccio & parmesan; arancini with fontina cheese; and peppers from Livio’s mum (oven baked beef stuffed red pepper and olive oil).
Fresh homemade pasta includes tagliolini arrabbiata & gamberi; gorgeous wild mushroom semolina risotto; and the showstopper pecorino, taleggio cheese and truffle filled ravioli.
Do it the Italian way and move onto a further course of grilled meats and seafood. Signatures include octopus with gremolata & roasted potatoes and marinated lemon chicken with sage butter. For something lighter, superb salads include Sicilian orange salad with olives and cashew nuts or puy lentil & apple with sweet vinaigrette.
Como Garden also has an impressive array of desserts on their dolci menu. Como Garden’s Tiramisu is customer favourite and the Italian cheese board features carefully curated regional specialties.
Drinks at Como Garden
The Como Garden wine cellar is full to the brim with exquisite Italian wines, ranging from full bodied reds to fruity whites, alongside a list of prosecco straight from the rolling hills of Veneto.
In addition, a menu of Italian classic cocktails and Como specials created by Como’s expert mixologist includes limoncello based Lago Ameranto (gin, limoncello, blackberries, egg white, sugar) and a delicious amaretto inspired Lecca-Lecca (vodka, amaretto, lemon juice, sugar).
