Berberè Clapham

It wouldn't be a list of the best Italian restaurants in Clapham without lashings of pizza. Tucked away on Northcote Road, with a gorgeous but petite terrace for warm summer afternoons, enjoy sourdough slices smothered in all kinds of toppings, including lightly smoked prosciutto, gorgonzola cheese, fiordilatte mozzarella, honey and walnuts, or plenty of nduja and salami.

Botanica Hall

Botanica is a hot contender when it comes to somewhere great for eating Italian plates near Clapham. While closer to Brixton station, a quick walk down Ferndale Road will have you there in no time, where you'll be able to indulge in everything from Sicilian sausage and 'nduja ragu to pink pizzas and truffle arancini. Just make sure to try some of the top-quality cocktails while you're at it.

Vagabond Northcote Road

Looking for Clapham Junction Italian restaurants? While more of a wine bar at heart, Vagabond still has plenty of nibbles and sharing plates to keep you ticking over while sipping your way through a glass (or two). From charcuterie to succulent arancini and a Sicilian aubergine dip, the menu here isn't short of tasty options that celebrate the vibrancy of flavour that Italy (and its wine) has to offer)


If you want to dine somewhere friendly and rustic, this quaint neighbourhood spot has your back. The Sorella Clapham menu has earned a nod from the Michelin guide, so what are the highlights? Dexter beef accompanied by smoked beetroot, chard and pickled walnut, alongside seaweed gnocchi with mussels and smoked mozzarella agnolotti.
