Pino is opening in Kensington, from the people behind the classic Il Portico

Pino opens in Kensington, from the people behind the classic Il Portico

The people behind family-run restaurant Il Portico in Kensington are getting ready to relaunch their sister restaurant, just a few doors down the street. Previously Pizzicotto, it's going to be reborn as Pino. 

The food at the restaurant will be influenced by Emilia-Romagna, based on cuisine from Bologna, Parma and Modena. They'll even be producing their own traditional organic Modena balsamic, aged in a barrel at the centre of the restaurant.

On the menu will be 

  • Campari-cured salmon with caperberries & beetroot
  • Native Colchester oysters with house apple balsamic & tropea onion vinegar
  • Fried zucchini flowers stuffed with citrus and ricotta
  • Tortellacio – a single large tortello filled with a soft poached egg in ricotta & served with crema of poppy seed & parmigiano reggiano
  • Fritto misto of fresh anchovies & calamari, mini parmigiana
  • Suppli - arancini with mozzarella, goat’s cheese & spinach

Alongside those will be salumi, prosciutti and culatelli from a small-batch producer, plus - be still our hearts - hot gnocco fritto stuffed with cured meats and cheese alongside pizza from their wood-burning oven. 

Drinks include Italian vermouths and gin, Italian wines all available by glass or bottle and cocktails inspired by 1950s Italy.
