This is a great place for families and walkers. The food is home-made Italian. On the weekends, there is an additional Special Menu. You can also get beer and wine with your meal as well. The coffee lattes are the best in London! I've also been to some parties here and the buffet food was delicious. The staff are really... More

The good points are: - Cheap tea and coffee at £1.20 a cup - Good location on the common - Lots of seating inside and out - Dog friendly (if kept on leads) Bad points: - They really haven't done much at all with this venue, which is such a MASSIVE waste of its amazing potential! - The seating is...

Nice "primi piatti" cooked by a Napoletan chef. Reasonable prices. Great espresso. Almost frequented by families.

Myself and my partner just moved to the area and discovered La Baita, it's cute and friendly for all. Their cheese and ham toasties are pretty good.

Arrived for breakfast before they stop serving it and move on to the lunchtime menu. We ordered and paid. Then a few minutes later were told the chef was not serving breakfast any longer. We got our money back and left. This is really bad practise and the chef should have honoured the paid for order. No one wants to... More

Great authentic Italian food in a great setting, ideal for all the family any day of the week. Their hot chocolates are tremendous!

Over priced coffees and cakes. Very rude, hostile and aggressive staff The only reason they get any customers is because they are located in the centre of Clapham Common I & my friends only give them my reluctant custom for that reason

Great stop for coffee and cakes. Hot meals available too. The coffee was good quality and nice. Food has a homemade Mediterranean flavour. They serve usual pizzas and sandwiches too which we didn't have. Décor could improve but for a premise in the middle of a park, can't really fault it.

I often stop at La Baita when up the Common with my dogs. Sign posting about no dogs inside is clear, I always opt for an outside table as it is a great spot overlooking the bandstand. The staff are friendly and the coffee and bacon ciabatta are highly recommended!

I have been there today with my little one and have to say although I love coffee, cakes and food I am not happy with management at all. They should make it very clear to all costumers that dogs are not allowed to take their dogs inside and if so, them must be on short lead. I have been abused... More
