Very busy restaurant on Saturday. Great menu with all traditional Italian dishes as well as some I haven’t seen before. The home made pasta is excellent, especially the papardelle with wild boar ragu. Lovely staff and great atmosphere. We had espresso martini to finish our...More

The pasta dishes are fantastic and amazing value for money compared to chain Italian restaurants. The restaurant is small but the staff are really friendly and able to answer questions and make recommendations on the menu. A new favourite and worth a visit if you...More

After 15 years of coming here, this dinner will certainly be our last. Food was mediocre and pricy for what it was. Fried calamari was dreadful, the batter thick, gooey and calamari chewy. The highlight is the beef carpaccio with the sublime mustard sauce, only...More

We have been coming here that long and probably ordering the same thing-the dessert trolley must over 40 years old-but yet again today it was exactly what you want for a family Sunday Italian -confirmed by the multi generational crowd in. Super kid friendly, great...More

The place looks decent and clean Anup the food is very/exceptionally good! Beware of soliciting single ladies operating in the premises, SA + gluten free being a clear sign !! Good place let down by the pro’s using it.

Has been a go-to place for us for years now and still love it. Food is delicious and fresh and wine good. Don't have any daily specials but there are some "must try" dishes such as the lobster spaghetti the veal Milanese.

Great to have a local Italian restaurant but this one is beginning to look "tired"! Still well supported by local families at the weekend but needs to have a make-over.

"Numero Uno is possibly Clapham's number one Italian restaurant. Situated on fashionable Northcote Road, in the week it is favoured by local suits, but at the weekends the whole family decamp to this great neighbourhood Italian. What's cooking? Risotto or homemade noodles with white truffle, fresh homemade pasta filled with ricotta cheese and spinach with walnut sauce, spaghetti with fresh lobster, pasta with wild boar sauce."
