Casa Brindisa in Kensington, is a bustling little Italian eatery in the heart of South Kensington.
The restaurant is only a minute's walk from South Kensington tube station and is on the strip of neighbouring restaurants and cafes. All the cafes are clamouring for your attention, but this little Italian restaurant is clean, simple and serves great food.
Casa Brindia is situated within easy reach of the British National Museum, the Victoria and Albert museum and the National History Museum, so if you're a museum enthusiast, Casa Brindisa is the perfect place to grab a bite on your way/ post musing.
I only went in for a bite after work with my sister who has recently returned from Abu Dhabi. She wanted to go somewhere relatively central without the headache of central London.
Casa Brindisa was the perfect place: although busy, we were seated immediately on a small, but functional table, and were served within 15 minutes of ordering.
We were informed that our table was only available for an hour and a half, but that suited us just fine, and we certainly didn't feel rushed.
We were surrounded by a mix of diners: couples, families, business folk and those who were enjoying dinner after work. Speaking of which, I wasn't very hungry, so I opted for two small plates instead of a large meal, both of which were delicious.
I ordered the cured tuna steak, which was fine slices of tuna served with half a sliced pear and the beetroot, walnut and blue cheese salad.
It was just enough to fill me up and my sister tucked in too.
We paid £26.10, which included the 12% service charge. Not bad in my books, not bad at all.
