Reviewed yesterday NEW

We called in to the restaurant and were very pleased with the friendly, welcoming service. The pasta was particularly good quality, as was the waiter's wine recommendation-by no means did he push the most expensive bottle on the menu, just one he knew lots about and reflected the sort of thing we told him we liked. We would like to... More

First time at Donna Margherita was an amazing experience I can't wait to repeat! The pane cafone (sourdough bread) made me feel back home, on a Sunday lunch where all the family gathered around. Antipasti were amazing, the O' fasul a messican was outstanding! Pasta dishes were all perfectly cooked and very authentic, just like mamma's. We went on Sunday... More

Fourth time we've been here and it's still my favourite Italian restaurant, so Italian we were the only people speaking English, and the food is to die for. Tonight I had the cheese board, :-) mmm

We went for the experience - 6 courses degustation menu. Tastes were amazing, portions massive, prices great and service impeccable. I agree with most of the reviewers who say there was a family feeling. The service was kind, discrete, unobtrusive and the limoncello a bonus! Thank you for this much needed great experience. Will definitely recommend to friends and visit... More

I am gonna write in English as I am happy to share with everyone what this place means for an Italian! And of course for me! This place means "being in Italy, in the south of Italy" where the food is a culture, where the pasta is "al dente", where the pizza is art, where the ingredients are just amazing... More

This gem of a place is a family run restaurant with great personalities. Everything you'd expect you as if you were in Italy. A young boy helping his parents with serving, a good vibe and a bit of friendly competition with the Napoli game on (which the staff all support). The food was great, I had meatballs to start and...

We stumbled on this place and thank our lucky stars. The food was great and healthy, the burrata is a must! The service and atmosphere top notch. We got speaking to the manager and he even gave us a lift home to streatham hill when we finished eating! Service doesn't get better than that. Will definitely go again.

Description
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.
