Donna Margherita

About Donna Margherita

Italian ristorantes don't come much more traditional than Donna Margherita. The entire Neapolitan team, led by Gabriele Vitale, share such a powerful passion for all things Southern Italian that you can feel it in the air. It's not only the walls that are imported, most of the produce is too. Every simple dish is guaranteed freshly made every day. Gorgeously fresh, top quality antipasto, pastas, sauces, meat, vegetarian and fish dishes are all on offer. But it's the pizzas that simply have to be devoured. The crispy thin crust pizzas are sublime. Seriously. And don’t just take our word on it; Johnny Vaughn raves that it’s ’the best pizza outside of Italy’. Each is proudly baked in a wood-fired oven just like mamma used to make. Donna Margherita is a restaurant with soul; you'll leave in love with Neapolitan food.
