2 Love It

This longstanding Clapham pizzeria has been knocking out pizzas for more than 20 years, so we're pretty sure they know what they're doing. A swish-looking pizza oven proves a talking point in a venue looking every bit the industrial part - think walls partially chipped to the brickwork, metal girders and brushed chrome as far as the eye can see.

The pizzas - made with double fermented sourdough - prove popular. Examples range from classics such as margheritas, Napoletanas and a San Daniele to options including a spicy piccante (ventricina, chorizo and 'nduja) and a scamorza and coppa - a pizza with pork shoulder, smoked mozzarella, rocket and pecorino. 

There's Italian influence across the rest of the menu, too. Expect dishes such as spaghetti vongole, pappardelle with a venison ragu, spicy beef meatballs and bruschetta here served with burrata, smoked scamorza, a black olive tapenade, fresh tomato and avocado. Keep an eye out for interesting breakfast and brunch options, too.

The food is quite good but the service is awful, be prepared to wait a long time for anything to get done, especially to pay the bill. We have been back several times but the service has been consistent so I won't be rushing back any time soon.

Pizzas are good but service is not! Pasta is horrible. Carbonare looks a soup of double cream. This is not a typical Italian restaurant.


I've been to eco a few times now and each time have loved it. The mixture of great food, service and atmosphere makes it one of my favourite places to eat in Clapham. Plus I'm slightly addicted to their Calzone, yum! :)

I love the new design, i felt very relaxed as the decor is very pleasing to the eye. i really enjoyed my pizza the Spicy picante and i like the wide variety on offer such as the pasta, calzones, salads etc. The children even have their own menu. A nice revamp to Clapham high street.


Food is average, and service is inconsistent. A disappointment. For the best Italian in Clapham, visit Osteria del Arte.

I have been going to ECO for years and the more i go, the better the service gets. The French manager, Raphael, brings a fantastic atmosphere as well as somewhere you want to be. The extra mile he goes changes the night from, food out, to a fantastic enjoyable evening. We love ECO and even though we were there last night for my birthday, we'll probably be back for Sunday!


Long wait for food. Pizzas are good but service is not. Noise is very loud can't talk at moderate level with friends/ family. Rude Manager unwilling to listen to customers - can't take criticism - bad manager! Wont be going back for a long time, if at all.


A pathetic excuse for an Italian restaurant/pizza joint. Rude staff, chewy pizza with meagre toppings and pasta worse than you'd get from ASDA. I don't see how this place is still in business. My advice is to go to McDonalds down the road.
