Numero Uno has hardly changed in the 25 years I have been going and the food and service are as good as ever. You won't find better unfussy Italian food outside of Italy.
Great dinner, great service, great pasta, good portions and not too pricey 👍🏼
Very nice, welcoming atmosphere. Great food! Veil was deliciuos
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.
Good food as always but service was a little patchy. 5 of put into a slightly cramped corner which was a shame as restaurant not full
An amazing menu and superb food and service. We are already planning our next visit with thoughts of the beautiful desserts.
Great restaurant great food excellent service highly recommend visiting for a great dining experience.
Went on Boxing Day with family and they catered for all kids, including babies, with aplomb. GREAT food and service and atmosphere: have the monkfish or the truffle pasta- bellissimo!
First time to this restaurant. Went with my daughter who lives in Clapham. Very friendly welcome when we arrived. Menu was huge and very varied. Food was delicious and service exemplary!
Will certainly be going back.
Always great food and great staff. A lovely small Italian on northcote road
Great food and friendly staff. Always busy so book in advance.
Beautiful food, lovely environment, Friendly staff. 100% go back!
I’ve only been a few times but never been disappointed by the food or service.
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.
I've been to Numero Uno loads of times and it never disappoints. Love it.
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.
We are regulars at this restaurant. The food is outstanding and always consistently excellent. It can be a bit noisy as it’s a small place and always very busy. We love it. The team there are great, friendly and attentive.
Excellent local Italian with very good food and great service
Great food great service attentive staff great menu highly recommended already recommended to clients & friends & family.
Great restaurant for our reunion of schoolfriends at lunchtime. Good fixed-price menu
Best local Italian in the area. When you get to know the staff you want to come back. Fresh white truffles were the order of the day; pasta, butter and truffle.
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.
Very lively and vibrant local restaurant. Good, solid Italian trattoria food. A lovely end of week treat
Great food and service, yes a bit pricey but worth it
Great food and atmosphere
Great value for money
Loved this place - was recommended by a friend and a bit nervous to take an Italian friend but we all LOVED it. Really great atmosphere, brilliant staff and such good food. Try the truffle pasta - it's amazing. Great desserts too served from authentic trolley.
Lovely little spot at the quieter end of Northcote Road. Food was exceptional - I was thinking about the truffle pasta for about two days after eating there! Would highly recommend for a long catch up dinner over a bottle of wine or a group meal. Friendly, family style, gem of a restaurant
Service very disinterested and patchy. Waiter ran off before we had finished our order. Starters plentiful but charcuterie arrived with no olive oil offered and it was a little dry. Scallops for main course very overcooked and doused in far too much balsamic vinegar, pasta with Italian sausage broccoli and chilli had no chilli not much broccoli and lacked flavour. They brought chilli when requested but no apology. The truffle pasta was very good and the chicken was good too but not enough to make us want to go back.
A lovely local restaurant with good food and nice ambience. Only complaint is the cost of of the starters which are £9.50 plus, going up to £16 which to my mind is way over the top for an appetizer. However, the portions are generous, so we shared two starters between four of us which was just about enough. We had to ask twice for oil and vinegar for the bread and were only given a very small amount which seemed a little mean.
Very enjoyable and staff were patient with our requests.
We weren't disappointed with our spontaneous Thursday night booking for a Friday night. Service was attentive and had a personal touch. The restaurant had a real Italian feel with a free tiramisu to share and limoncello shot at the end - a real crowd-pleaser!
Great little gem...is our new fav local place which we can walk too.
As ever great fun, although on this occasion they did not have my choice of starter or main course. That said, they asked me what else I would like and made it especially. That's 5 star!
Always friendly and great quality simple food.
Great food and service! Nice ambience. Will be back!
Numero Uno has a welcoming continental atmosphere. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The menu was varied and the food tasty. We enjoyed our first visit and will go again.
Old school charm, family-run feel, lovely service and comforting food - had a wonderful evening catching up with an old friend marked by slow drinking and tasty food / drinks.
Delicious food at a fair price but it is obviously very popular and the restaurant has tried to capitalise on this by having far too many tables in there. I would say it tries to squeeze in 30% more covers than an average restaurant of its size (which is a credit to the kitchen and the waiting staff as these elements weren’t compromised) but it does leave you feeling hemmed in, squashed and shouting to be heard.
Food is divine! Fantastic family venue. Friendly efficient service.
Very pleased as always with Numero Uno, we came back here for our 3 year anniversary and was not disappointed. We had the anti pasti, followed by a seafood linguine and cheesecake, such a lovely atmosphere good prices, we each had a drink and a coffee and the whole bill came to £89! Did not feel rushed or pestered at all.
