Popped in mid week with a friend and fancied something not on the menu (a salmon pasta dish), asked the waiter who consulted with the kitchen who also offered me a choice of pasta and sauce base. I was delighted with my personalised dinner- it was absolutely lovely. I've never made a request like that before but was so impressed... More

We arrived early Saturday eve before the rush. Seated straight away. Service was friendly and the food was delicious. Generous portions and quality fresh ingredients. A good place for family & friends. It does get busy, good place to start a night out. Service a bit slow so leave plenty of time. Value for money.

Me and a friend of mine decide to have a lunch in this nice restaurant in clapham junction. Unfortunately we went there just five minute after the last order but they treat us as a first customer, the whole team was friendly and professional. About the food we had as a starter zucchine e calamari simple and nice, as a... More

My husband and I have been living in the Clapham and Wandsworth area for about 6 years now and Buona Sera is our go to restaurant when we just want a super relaxed and affordable meal on a lazy weekend day. The food is very reasonably priced (starters are around £7 and pizzas around £10) and I can honestly say... More

We stumbled on this place almost by accident on an extremely busy Saturday evening. Although it was late, the place was still packed and had a really friendly vibe about it. Service was quick and very friendly, and the wine was excellent (with a wine bucket being fetched automatically). The stuffed mushrooms were a little disappointing - the sauce was... More

Visited this restaurant having walked along Northcote Road and thinking this place would be a good choice. We were seated promptly and we initially thought we had made a good choice as it seems to be run by Italians so had high expectations. Sadly things went downhill from there. We were able to order drinks and receive them and then... More

This capacious restaurant just off Clapham Junction offers authentic Italian dishes and the obligatory, but average, pizza should you wish. The staff are friendly and service is good. Reasonably priced with a good choice of wine, For us, the specials are often the best choice. Alfresco dining available on warmer days too.

What a difference friendly staff makes! Ate here yesterday and everyone was lovely. It has a lovely atmosphere and is good value for money. I had the Trenette Al Pesto. It was quite nice, a little oily though. Will return but would opt for a different dish next time.

On walking up Northcote Road you are surrounded by lots of great places to eat. We decided to give this place a try given that our daughter wanted a pizza. What a mistake that was. The pizza's are OK but nothing special. They were large but had way to much cheese. My husband left half of it on the plate.... More
