From the moment we saw Timo Restaurant's attractive and leafy exterior, we knew we were in for a wonderful evening. Situated at the quieter end of Kensington High Street, Timo Restaurant is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of one of London's main shopping streets. Kensington High Street boasts numerous intriguing restaurants, but Timo is a cut above the rest - no wonder it has built up such a strong local following.

Upon entering we were personally welcomed by Piero Amodio, Timo Restaurant's charming owner. The staff, following their boss' example, are attentive and friendly without being overbearing, and the restaurant is small and intimate, with widely spaced tables. Being a traditional Italian restaurant, Timo Restaurant of course specialises in pasta - in fact, here you'll find some of the most exquisite pasta available in London. Starters include courgette flowers stuffed with ricotta, asparagus and tomato coulis, and mains include linguine with clams, chilli, garlic and parsley, and pasta with wild boar or Gressingham duck ragout. All are sensational. In fact, the only difficulty you'll have is deciding which dishes to choose, while ensuring you leave room for pudding - the chocolate and hazelnut fondant is not to be missed.

Timo Restaurant is exceptionally good value at lunchtimes, with a fixed-price menu at £13.90 for two courses and £17.90 for three. There's an excellent wine cellar specialising in Italian wine, with over 120 wines and most regions of Italy represented. To really get you in the Italian mood, there's also a large selection of quality grappas. The wine cellar opens into an atmospheric downstairs dining room - an excellent venue for private parties.

A favourite with London diners, Timo Restaurant has been awarded a Toptable Gold Award for excellence. If you're after charming and attentive service combined with superior Italian food, then this is the place to go.
