This is a late review, actually went back in January for my daughters' last birthday, but we had such a nice meal. Lovely ambience, low lights, not too loud, very comfortable surroundings, and the food very good. The starters; I remember I had the squid and courgette I think, deep fried in batter, with a dip. Hot, fresh and very... More

I was in Italy last summer and I find that the pizzas at Caminata are much better. Highly recommended. Impressed

Dined a few weeks ago on a Friday night & had a lovely buzzy atmosphere and friendly service. The calamari and courgette starter was crispy, light & delicious. The charcoal pizzas were both great. We had more wine instead of pudding and the bill was extremely reasonable for the enjoyable meal we had experienced. Would recommend and will be back.

We have been about 8 times in the last year, as the food is always fresh and delicious, the restaurant inviting and cosy, and the staff, especially Giuseppe always making us laugh and feel very welcome. The pasta is made fresh in the restaurant and never disappoints. Will be back again soon!

I enjoyed this buzzy busy little restaurant especially the yummy Primitivo for £23 and my friend enjoyed the rabbit tagliatelle, the puddings were quite good too and our £60 bill not bad for Balham BUT my prawn and courgette pasta was rather tasteless and had scarily flabby white prawns. They looked as if they had been defrosted but not cooked... More

First time eating here last week. It's a great little local, with wonderful staff and amazing food. It was fully booked but we sat at the bar whilst they found us a table and entertained us whilst we waited. Will be back soon.

Thank Claire C
