La Terrazza restaurant really is the jewel in Kensington’s crown. Serving continental and cooked to order breakfasts, grazing tapas style lunches, indulgent afternoon teas and a seasonal a la carte dinner menu. The kitchen is open from 7am – 10.30pm daily, and is rightly regarded as one of the best Kensington restaurants for Italian food.
Out of all the Kensington restaurants, La Terrazza is the most beautiful, bright and casual space. Situated on the ground floor of Hotel Xenia, Autograph Collection open to the public and in-house guests. With comfortable colourful chairs set against the custom made Fornasetti wallpaper, the restaurant creates a relaxing space to savour delicious dishes over a long, relaxing afternoon or evening in the heart of Kensington.

Also, it is a perfect respite serving for those exploring West London and the fantastic array of museums and galleries on the restaurant’s doorstep including the Design Museum, Natural History Museum and V&A Museum.
With lights dimmed and tables are redressed for dinner service, La Terrazza comes into its own as a romantic setting for a dinner date or pre-theatre dinner before heading to a performance at The Royal Albert Hall nearby. Additionally, with an extensive wine list from the on-site cellar, diners can explore a plethora of Italian wines by the bottle or glass. The collection includes fantastic labels from artisan and organic vineyards.
