Theo’s Simple Italian London is stripped back Italian dining. In other words, the way it should be. The brainchild of Michelin-starred chef Theo Randall, this elegant restaurant in Earl’s Court has garnered itself a loyal following of London foodies eager to see what the acclaimed chef has done with his second venture. The space itself has an eye-catching tiled bar, chequered flooring, bold coloured seating and muted lighting to create an ambience that complements the rustic Italian menu perfectly. There is exquisite pasta, risotto and secondi selections, a carefully designed set menu, a decadent brunch menu and a wine list that’s impressive. Theo’s Simple Italian Earl’s Court is set to be a London institution and is well worth a reservation. You’ll find it in Barkston Gardens, a short way from Earl’s Court Underground and within Hotel Indigo London.

Offering brunch, lunch and dinner, you’ll be spoilt for choice no matter what time of day you’re dining. The a la carte is a brilliant display of dishes, and we recommend kicking things off at Theo’s Simple Italian Earl’s Court with the traditional Tuscan fish stew; freshly grilled calamari with a fennel, orange and olive salad; or the salumi and burrata board. Pasta fans should keep an eye out for the pappardelle al ragu – a house favourite – made with housemade ribbon pasta and a slow-cooked beef ragu. We also love the roast pork belly, the slow-cooked ox cheek and the fennel-scented risotto with mussels and clams.

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The venue was bright, modern and clean. The food was absolutely delicious. The only issue was that although we were in a rush and told the staff, the main courses took half an hour to arrive.
Simple, great quality, authentic Italian. Great service and friendly. Good wine recommendation. Would highly recommend the oxtail pappardelle or squid ink risotto. Simple food done well
The food was ok, lacked a bit of flavour and finesse. The service could’ve been a lot better, and the prices could’ve been a little lower considering the level of quality.
