Situated on bustling Northcote Road in London’s chi chi Clapham, Numero Uno is an Italian restaurant which delights locals and visitors alike. A typical neighbourhood Italian, Numero Uno is popular with businessmen and commuters during the week but at weekends fills with a more relaxed crowd of families looking for an unfussy dinner and groups enjoying each others company as they dig in to antipasti platters. An Italian wait staff make the Numero Uno experience all that more authentic, each of them moving from table to table, joking and conversing with diners as they take orders and make recommendations. A varied menu of Italian favourites, generously portioned, are followed by wonderfully decadent desserts and of course complimentary limoncello.

Never disappointed with the quality of "home cooked" food & vino (& service with a smile) on offer at one of my favourite restaurants, one is left with ample time to choose, order and enjoy the fantastic ambience that Numero Uno offers. We celebrated the eve the Eve of our father's 90th birthday and could not have asked for a more hospitable experience. Chris B

Went at 6.45 and it was quiet and pleasant. Waiters were very efficient, food came fast and all the pasta dishes were delicious with plenty of seafood. The portions could have been a bit bigger perhaps. Simple starter of antipasti had good quality ingredients. It started to get busy halfway through the meal, so we were glad to come early. Overall a very solid restaurant that deserves all the attention it gets in this neighborhood.

Fantastic family run restaurant with delicious menu in a vibrant area of Clapham. I went for a catch up with old friends and we got a corner round table which was great for chat. Food was declared excellent by all. One friend is a regular as she lives nearby, so that says it all.

We stumbled across Numero Uno a few summers ago. Have been back many times since and are always happy with the food and the service. This occasion was our New Years Eve dinner. The vibe was great without being overwhelming- as is the case whenever we go. We had the tuna carpaccio as a starter which was really lovely and fresh. And My Lobster Linguine was divine. Always love the dessert cart with the fruit tart at the end as well. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves an authentic Italian experience.

Numero Uno has always been consistently excellent since I first visited in the mid 1990's. On this occasion I was celebrating my 60th birthday with a small party of family and friends. Everyone's verdict was the same: TRULY EXCELLENT evening. I cannot commend Numero Uno highly enough, and I cannot wait to go back again.

My partner in crime was late for our meeting but the gentleman looked after me really well, checking if I was okay and serving me drinks. The food was amazing, so fresh and lush. Busy restaurant, not for a quiet chat. Really friendly vibe for a Friday night. Excellent food and serve for the price. Will 100% visit again soon.

Really attentive service, great wine list and fresh authentic Italian food. We had a great time. My only commenters I’d like a few more gluten free options for pasta and bread. But that’s not a criticism at all.
