Unfortunately due to it being super busy, we couldn't have our main before having to leave due to the ten pm curfew. But the staff were super nice, apologetic and even gave us a free round of drinks for when they next open back up again. The food we did have was super tasty. Really good. Definitely would want to come back and try the full experience.
Incredible food, drinks and staff but too close to one table to another
Tasty pasta dishes and Arancini - was very busy which is always a good sign
Gorgeous food and wine, amazing atmosphere and brilliant staff! Lots of groups of friends and date-nights, quite loud as everyone was chatting away, but in a really good, comfortable way. Also fab cocktails!
It´s really hard to differentiate oneself as an Italian restaurant in London. At the same time it is really hard as a diner to find a place to eat that simple but perfectly balanced food that Italy is famous for. Mbare does that.
Restaurant had a good atmosphere but food wasn’t great
Lovey meal, Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Great for a relaxed meal out with partner.
Service was slow and a couple of items from the menu had run out but the food we did have was good.
We had a really nice meal. It was very busy and the table was quite small but the staff were very accommodating!
Lovely but always so rushed. When we got in they said they’d over-booked so we could only have the table for 90 mins. Not the first time this has happened. No need for this as at end of 90 mins a number of tables were empty, but it does put you off relaxing.
Probably the best service we’ve had all year in this restaurant, every member of staff was polite and knowledgeable, the food was amazing and the seating is perfect…I will definitely be making this a place to visit on a monthly basis!
Very pleasant customer service. The food was nice, especially the olives. A nice outing all in all.
Extremely attentive, friendly staff and great gluten free options!
Arrived and saw it was very crowded and noisy. Social distancing did not seem to be in place. Tables close together, no screening or distancing. Did not feel safe so left without being checked in. Later received a message from the restaurant thanking us for eating there showing they don't know who is there which is clearly not covid-safe.
Favourite place in Clapham! Great food and, vibe and service
Great food, nice waiting staff. Really busy so probably worse service than usual. Music is too loud for my tastes...
The food was amazing and the waiters were very helpful with helping you choose dishes that you would like. In terms of social distancing measures, they could be strict and not lean over you when serving food but overall it felt safe.
Excellent service, great food and good price. Waiters were very caring and not pushy.
Excellent Italian food - fresh seafood pasta was a highlight. Great atmosphere - loved the buzz about the place. Superb team who made it great fun - thanks for the ace cocktails and even the shots to finish off the night. Will be back soon, thanks.
Food was fantastic, full of flavour and well presented. Staff we’re very friendly and attentive. I can’t wait to go back.
Really really excellent, the food was superb and the service even better. Cosimo could not have done more to make the evening perfect. Highly recommend for an all round great experience
Brilliant service. So thoughtful. Lovely dinner. They brought out a complimentary birthday cake.
Great afternoon at MBARE. Lovely atmosphere and staff.
As always- outstanding. So glad Mbare is still here/ the food is always exquisite, the service wonderful, and the drinks delicious
Delicious food and really friendly service. Will come back!
Beautiful food, great atmosphere and attentive staff. Lives up to all the other amazing reviews
Highly recommend. Excellent food, friendly efficient staff. Will be back.
This was my first trip to a restaurant since March and I was not disappointed. Lovely staff, great service, good value for money. But more than anything, they treated us with respect and like human beings and not bio hazards. There were a few sensible precautions but no daft restrictions. They seem to value their customers and I hope everyone goes there.
Nice place and staff but food was dreadful .... not authentic Italian food, very bland .... disappointing as the restaurant had a nice feel and we wanted to give it a chance, but the food really let it down
Italian climate in the heart of England, great food. good choice for vege
Delicious, fresh, beautifully served. Shame it's not our local!
I had brunch at MBare and it was great - good selection of dishes and great value. The only drawback is the coffee is not great - if they improved this then it would be the best brunch in Clapahm.
We went for bottomless brunch and it was brilliant! The food is amazing and the staff are amazing - definitely go here. I have also been here for a more 'casual' brunch and it was fab.
Wonderful Valentine’s Day meal - staff were organised, food was delicious and the ambience was great - will definitely be going back to sample the regular menu.
The restaurant was very busy but the waiter was so attentive, asking if we had any questions about the menus and giving us amuse-bouche with a detailed description of what was in it. Excellent service.
Authentic and flavourful Italian food. I went with a fussy Italian friend and she loved it. The pici cavil e pepe is delicious. I was not so taken by the upside down Norma sauce. Would love them to do a proper ragû - maybe with a Tuscan flavour - so wild boar with juniper or something. Still love the food and service. A great addition to Clapham High Street.
Excelente option for brunch!
Great atmosphere, excellent service, good value, all provided with a passion for doing it right the Sicilian way.
Servizio fantastico e cibo delizioso!
Più tortino di compleanno a sorprendere per la mia ragazza,consigliato!
Amazing staff and hospitality! Such a lovely place for dinner! Great effort for the sustainable and waste free ethos! Not sure on the waitresses name that served us but she was so lovely and made our experience ever better!
