More about Bistro Benito, London

Many Earls Court locals drop in to Bistro Benito simply for a freshly brewed Italian espresso or a dolcelatte and a chat with father and son proprietors Benito and Simone Marella. Open from 11:30am until late every day of the week, this neighbourhood Italian restaurant down Earls Court Road is a meeting place for regular patrons from the area or dedicated fans of authentic Italian cuisine who come from all over London, alighting from Earls Court tube station and making the short trip up the road lunch or dinner.

Bistro Benito’s menu is typically Italian, starting with antipasti and pasta, moving through classic main courses with plenty of sides and salads as accompaniments. The dessert menu here is longer than at most Italian restaurants in London, with the zabaglione (whipped egg and Marsala wine), chocolate profiteroles, and the house special crepes Benito (with ice cream and a Grand Marnier sauce) being particular highlights. Start your meal at this Earls Court institution with the chef’s pate, Italian-inflected escargots, or the stracciatella (a clear egg soup) before taking in a plate of Neapolitan gnocchi, risotto casalingo, or classic cannelloni with veal and spinach. Highlights from the list of mains include the knuckle of veal, the veal in Marsala wine, trout with almonds, the Milanese chicken escalope, and the grilled calf's liver. Be sure to book a table at Bistro Benito to beat the local crowds.

We were a group of 8 with 3 chlidren , we received a genuine welcome when we arrived. The service was at the right pace and the food was spot on. Well priced with a complementary drink. We will definitely return.

The food was fabulous and the service was fantastic. The desert trolley being wheeled around showing all the desserts reminded me of a restaurant in Rome. Will definitely be going back.

Decor like going back in time with excellent standard Italian food and first class service. Still a little gem very close to Earls Court underground station.
