Fish & Bubbles, Notting Hill

Nestled in the vibrant streets of Notting Hill on Kensington Park Road, the new seafood sensation Fish & Bubbles has emerged as London’s latest gem. This modern Italian seafood restaurant and aperitivo bar, conceived by Peppe and Angelo Corsaro—the brains behind the renowned La Mia Mamma and favourites of Stanley Tucci—is setting a new standard in the dining landscape with a fresh, creative concept.

The Corsaro brothers have seamlessly blended traditional Italian flavours with a contemporary twist, creating a menu that features gourmet seafood paninis, expansive fritto misto boards, and creatively curated cocktails.

From the ‘Panini di Mare’ showcasing Italian-style Rosetta buns filled with fresh Mediterranean seafood to the Prosecco-battered catch of the day, every dish is a taste of the Italian seaside. Highlights include the ‘Tuna Turner’—a delightful concoction of cacio e pepe & basil cream, tuna tartare, roasted tomatoes, stracciatella, and rocket—and ‘The Spadino’, a seared swordfish cutlet paired with ribboned courgettes, cured pork neck, and lemon ricotta mousse.

As day turns to night, the atmosphere at Fish & Bubbles shifts from casual lunches to enchanting candlelit evenings, ideal for aperitivo-style cocktails. The bar, excelling in mixology, offers everything from aged negronis – both the sea salt Panarea and the Capri with prosecco are excellent – to Hugo and Aperol spritzes, alongside an exclusively Italian wine list. The aperitivo hour is a cultural ritual, complete with sharing boards laden with fried seafood or platters of Italian delicacies, making it a perfect prelude to an evening of dining.

Besides their celebrated paninis, Fish & Bubbles also serves a variety of Italian fish tapas, poké bowls, and crudi di mare, ensuring there’s something to satisfy every guest. For those seeking a quick bite, Italian-style street food served in paper cones offers a delicious taste of Italy on the go.

This West London haven not only captivates with its menu but also its ambiance. The friendly atmosphere is complemented by excellent service, great but unobtrusive music and gorgeous, colourful décor paying homage to Puglia, Sardinia and the Amalfi coast. The white-washed walls, exposed brickwork, natural woods, draped fishing nets all make for a gorgeous, charming eatery.

Fish & Bubbles truly is a Sicilian escape in the heart of London. Whether for a quick lunch or a leisurely evening, this is the place to indulge in the delights of the Italian dining scene. So, if you’re craving a taste of Italy and some serious coastal vibes this spring, Fish & Bubbles is where you’ll want to be.
