More about Buonasera, London

Running through Buonasera’s eminently Italian menu, a few dishes from each of the classic meal structure pop out as favourites among regulars to this Clapham Junction and Battersea trattoria. Besides the mixed antipasti platters – great ideas for a larger group or simply as an introduction to the delicious cheeses and cured meats of the bel paese – a house signature here is undoubtedly the guazzetto, a fish casserole stocked with tiger prawns, mussels, clams, cherry tomatoes, rocket, garlic and chilli. It’s a seafood bonanza right here in south London and dinner’s hardly begun.

Over to the pasta selection, Buonasera’s saffron-laced gnocchi with pancetta, courgette and a creamy sauce is unmissable, but it's the salsiccia e fagioli, know at this south London Italian restaurant as Lorenzo’ sausages – not to be confused with the lifesaving oil that goes by the same name – that wins us over. A hearty stew of borlotti beans, authentic Italian sausage, rosemary and garlic with deep-fried polenta to mop it all up, it’s a brilliant introduction to what Buonasera does best. And that’s to maintain a place where Clapham Junction and Battersea locals can always find reliably excellent Italian fare. wherever you are in the city, make your way to Northcote Road for a taste of your own – after you make a booking, of course.
