Donna Margherita

Squaremeal Review of Donna Margherita ?

This popular pizza joint may not be worth a trip across town, but as a local, it’s hard to beat. The interior – dressed up with washing lines of Napoli football shirts & general southern Italian bric-a-brac – is an odd sight in London, but it’s best to go with the flow & enjoy it. Food is fun & of a high quality. There’s an ample choice of antipasti, including several familiar dishes (bruschetta, carpaccio, octopus salad), but also lentils with friarielli (broccoli rabe) & chilli. Next, the big wood-fired oven is used to full advantage, producing excellent crisp-based pizzas with classic Neapolitan toppings. Pasta comes in hearty portions; recommended is the homemade scialatielli with mixed seafood & chilli. In comparison, main courses are slightly uninspiring if well prepared (mixed grills, sausages & potatoes, baked fish). Booking essential.

On the right of the room you will find a decent display selection of Italian wines with READ MORE...

Great local

by   silver reviewer (27)

Jul 2015

Editor's pick Sitting on the less than inspiring Lavender Hill, Donna Margherita is a joy to visit. Circa ten years old, it feels new, with a modern decor and ambience, and with seriously well executed traditional Neopolitan fare, it performs admirably for the nappy valley crowd of Clapham. A very happy team give a warm welcome We kicked off with two specials; the calamari polpette (squid meatballs) which were crispy outside and had delicious subtle minced squid inside. served with a tartar sauce and livened...
