Following the unparalleled success of Pizzeria Franco, which was acquired and ran by Sami and Laura Wasif in the 1980s, a new opportunity arose to build a larger eatery in Clapham Common. What came from this was a restaurant designed by founder Sami, hand-built by Brixton designer and wordsmith Anand Zenz, and the first Anglo-Italian multi-award winning Pizzeria in London - Eco.

The name Eco is inspired by semiotician and code-breaking author and professor Umberto Eco, born in Alessandria, Italy. At the time that Eco was being converted from a Morley’s into the most popular and loved Clapham food institution of its time, Umberto Eco’s novel-turned-film ‘The Name of The Rose’ was playing at the Clapham Picture House next door, a story about the truth behind the meaning of a name.

I have visited Eco twice and both times first and foremost the customer service was excellent. I last dined here for my 2nd anniversary with my partner and upon arrival the host greeted us in a friendly manner. I told the man that I had a table for two booked for 7 (we were about ten minutes early so were expecting maybe a short wait) and he responded with a personal manner again welcoming me by name which was very pleasant. It was nice that he was prepared and awaiting our arrival and also managed to fulfil our request of having a table in a quiet area. Our waiter then proceeded to introduce herself and take drinks orders. I was very pleased with the speed of which all our orders were taken and we were made to feel very comfortable and that we could ask for anything at anytime. The food looked, smelt and tasted delicious and the portion sizes were very reasonable for the price so all in all good value. The worst thing about trying a new place is not knowing whether the quality of the food is going to match the price and I'm glad to say that Eco is definitely worth it and within my usual budget. On a final note to anyone still not sure about this restaurant, I would definitely and have already recommended it because you get the whole dining experience. The decor is lovely and rustic, the food is mouthwatering and the overall meal out is a most enjoyable and satisfying experience.
