About Donna Margherita

Dear diners, please note that reservations for the terrace area of this restaurant must be made by contacting the restaurant directly. To reserve for groups of more than four people, a deposit will be required to secure the booking.

Close to Clapham Junction station in London’s Battersea, Donna Margherita has been serving up a dazzling array of authentic Neapolitan dishes for over ten years. This Italian restaurant on Lavender Hill is home to a traditional wood-fired stone oven, turning out some of the best-loved pizzas south of the river, made with ingredients imported directly from Italy. Of course, superlative Neapolitan pizza doesn’t exhaust the possibilities here: there’s a classically-structured Italian menu to work your way through, curated with as much care and love as the pizza.

More about Donna Margherita, London

It’s June 11, 1889. Pizzaiolo Raffeele Esposito of Naples is to bake the ‘royal pizza’ in honour of visiting King Umberto I and Queen Margharita of Savoy. Esposito goes with strong visuals: Green basil, white mozzarella, and red tomatoes on his pizza symbolize the Italian flag, the pizza goes on to be known as pizza margherita – and is one of the many reasons we cannot contain our joy when visiting Donna Margherita on Lavender Hill in Clapham. For over ten years, the restaurant has delivered the very best in traditional Napoli-style Italian food, very much in the tradition of Esposito.

Using only the freshest ingredients and having them imported from the South of Italy, Donna Margherita stands for a culinary experience like no other. Wood-fired oven, centuries-old recipes, and a very kind and friendly service make Donna Margherita a great place to enjoy some of Napoli’s finest in South London.
