This is a family run, friendly Italian, with a huge tree growing in the middle of it.  Random quirky art adorns the walls and the food, while nothing particularly original or amazing, is always good quality and delicious - I love always the 'Specials' crayoned up on the large mirror, and best of all seems, always to me, to be the polenta.  Staff are warm and lovely.  I recommend this as a good quality safe but lovely choice.


I stumbled across this restuarant one evening when my boyfriend and I were looking for somewhere to eat in Clapham in February and we've been back several times on our own and we've taken friends and family there too. The food is always delicious - although I do think their desserts let them down a bit. The service is always friendly and attentive and atmosphere is cosy and vibrant. We love it.

I heard about Osteria dell'Arte from word of mouth. I came all the way from West London to take my mum out and it was worth it! The restaurant itself is beautifully laid out with a great selection of art and plants, creating a welcoming, unique atmosphere. The food was delicious. Had a starter of FRESH grilled squid, which was exquisite. The main courses were also of an exceptionally high quality and just delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant for those who love to eat well and everyone else. The staff were friendly, informative and attentive. One of the best restaurant experiences of my life. Loved it!
