Arancina Notting Hill Review

Arancina Notting Hill is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things you need to know about Arancina:

1) Arancina is just round the corner from Notting Hill Gate tube station so easy to find if you’re a non-local like me.

2) Look out for a half an orange Fiat car in the window. The other half is in the Westbourne Grove branch of Arancina. It might not be the first time you’ve seen a Fiat in an Italian eaterie but as a promo ploy, it totally works.

3) At Arancina you’ve got lasagne, aubergines alla parmigiana and other Italian dishes, but mostly authentic Italian pizza, and lots of it; by the slice for take-out downstairs, as well as in the small restaurant upstairs, which seats around 20.

4) Don’t expect to see tables loaded with huge pepper grinders, mountains of white linen and chic Italian tableware. Simple wooden tables and chairs provide a good view overlooking the street. You’ll need all the table space you can get for the food.

5) The pizzas come in two sizes; paletta (large) or pala (getting on for a metre long). I saw one man at the next table eat a whole pala. To an Arancina novice like me, he may as well have eaten a whole impala. Note to diners who order the pala; arrive hungry.

6) Sadly, there are no prizes for finishing a pala. Arancina is not a food challenge venue, even though it could be; palas are clearly the norm for the experienced Italian diners who frequent this restaurant.

7) If pizzas pall, try the Arancine, deep fried risotto balls stuffed with gooey fillings like ham and cheese, beef ragu and mozzarella along with veggie options. There’s even the occasional sweet filling like chocolate and ricotta.

8) The alcohol licence means there’s wine, beer and even cocktails to be had upstairs.

9) The restaurant gets busy so be sure to book if you want to sit down or buy a slice of tactical pizza downstairs before hitting the local pubs.

10) The service is quick and the staff are cheerful so if you want decently-priced, authentic, Italian food good enough for Italians, get down to Arancina next time you’re in Notting Hill.
