Donna Margherita Review

Donna Margherita is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things you need to know about Donna Margherita:

1) Are you willing to travel all the way to Clapham Junction, the southern reign of Nappy Valley, to taste authentic Italian food? Of course you are! So, good on you: you won’t regret it.

2) There’s plenty to enjoy about Donna Margherita's rustic interior, from the many shelves filled with hundreds of wine bottles, to the giant wall painting of Sophia Loren.

3) Who needs Ryanair, when you can land in a real "trattoria" after a short commute on the Tube? Most of the clientele are Italian as well, which adds to the illusion.

4) This Italian restaurant's demographics are in fact well justified by its offerings. The varied range of pizzas coming out of the wood-fired oven almost have the same taste and texture as those you may enjoy in sunny Naples, the beloved hometown of Gabriele Vitale, the restaurant’s owner and Head Chef.

5) But it’s in the fabulous antipasti and mains that you can recognise the all-Italian obsession for top-notch, simple ingredients imported from selected Italian producers. Every dish takes you on a journey to beautiful Southern Italy: from the tasty bruschetta, to the mouth-watering aubergine parmigiana, and from the burrata to the seafood homemade pasta.

6) Pizza and beer are usually devoted friends and nothing usually comes between them. However, at Donna Margherita’s you're allowed to bend the rules when you're offered such an impressive and carefully-selected wine list.

7) Make the most of the staff's great knowledge about Italian specialities and ask for their advice. You'll discover some rare and lesser known gastronomic gems.

8) Do like the Italians do: end the food feast with a perfect espresso.

9) This virtual Mediterranean escapade won't cost you a fortune, so you can save up for a real Italian grand tour.

10) At Donna Margherita, embrace Gabriele's dream to convey Italy's welcoming spirit, and the passion for simple delicious things savoured slowly with good friends.
