If it weren't for our British weather and the view of lavender hill you could easily imagine you were in Italy.

Donna Margherita is a traditional Southern Italian restaurant with a strong Neapolitan influence.We were the first ones to bring authentic Neapolitan Pizza to London (with the 24 hour raising dough) in 2003. We are passionate about our food and respect the traditional ways of cooking,meaning we are only using top quality products and serve the food as it will be served in Naples.Our pasta are served aldente as it should be.We are also sourcing more and more organic products like our eggs, meat, vegetables..We also have a deli corner where you can buy quality pasta(Rummo), gluten free pasta, organic jam, chocolate and hazelnut spread with no palm oil, our own Sicilian extra virgin olive oil and our own balsamic vinegar at a very reasonnable price. We also have an extended wine list of around 100 carefully selected Italian wines which suits every budget. At the top end you can enjoy the likes of Sassicaia, Ornellaia etc... at a competitive price.
