Two of my oldest friends in London had worked out that Clapham Junction was their middle of distance to travel and who am I to disagree?! This visit they picked Antica Bologna and we all had a good time! We started off with an Aperol...More

3 'main' dishes on the menu were vegetarian - soup (not really a main, is it folks?), gnocci (in my opinion the most pointless starchy, stodgy food ever invented) and ravioli. I therefore chose ravioli, which tasted of salt and nothing else and didn't seem...More

Fresh Italian food served in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Lots of daily special and an amazing-for-value set lunch available Monday to Friday! Great wine-list covering from the classic Barolo to the rarer Pecorino wine from Marches.
