Britain’s embrace of a perfectly puffed, handcrafted Neapolitan pizza has strengthened over the years, making it one of the most well-loved dishes in the nation. If you ever find yourself daydreaming about an Eat, Pray, Love adventure, head toward Battersea. Donna Margherita understands the art of making a Neapolitan pizza in a wood-burning oven as if it were in its ancestral home: you will not find a more authentic, uncorrupted slice than in this institution in the heart of Lavender Hill.
With a menu full of heart, it is no surprise that Donna Margherita has received such high praises from its patrons, and is one of the best Italian restaurants in London. Feel the fresh creaminess of Burrata for starter, with a zing from seasonal figs, lemon balm and balsamic vinegar just enough to tingle your tastebuds. Dive into the homemade pasta dishes, lovingly and freshly prepared. Or appease yourself and your soul with a pizza - from a simple, soft, imperfectly circular but perfectly baked and seasoned Marinara, to the indulgent and luscious Pizza Del Golfo with prawns and calamari. Anything from the menu is quite a treat, and a glass of wine is on the table makes it all the more authentic experience.
London does not lack venues that offer Italian cuisine, but it is much rarer to find somewhere that embraces the identity and breathes the soul of Italian food into every dish that is prepared and served. Make sure you get to experience this in Donna Margherita, book a table with DiscoEat for 10-50% off the food menu, and perhaps you don’t really need to quit your 9-to-5 for a self-discovery adventure in Italy after all.
