About Buona Sera Restaurant

Here at Buona Sera, we’re proud to have been a part of south London’s Battersea and Clapham communities for over thirty years, meaning we now greet the children of some of our long-time regulars at our Northcote Road restaurant.

The Buona Sera story began back in 1989, when we opened a small restaurant here in Battersea. Over the years, our customer base has grown, and our local regulars and fans of good Italian food from across London have watched us grow from a single shopfront to a bustling restaurant.

The key to our longevity and our success is, we believe, our authentic approach to Italian cuisine and vibrant atmosphere – a combination that makes our guests feel very much like they’re at home.

Take a look at our menus and extensive wine selection, find out more about us, and make your reservations. We look forward to seeing you at Buona Sera soon!

This restaurant was lovely and served authentic italian food, the tables were at a great distance considering the times we are in, and the waitress who served us was lovely and had great rapport. We did not wait too long for the food and really enjoyed ourselves. All of the waiters and waitresses I saw were wearing masks which was very comforting!

Probably the most enjoyable lunch since COVID began! Your staff are great and the experience was really fun rather than a bit stressful which I have exyelsewhere. Thank you.

Very nice meal & experience overall. Service was very slow - we waited 20-25mins for them to take even drinks order. Once ordered, the food came out very very quickly (before our drinks arrived even). Slow to ask for drinks top up, to order dessert and to ask if we wanted the bill. Overall I would still go again.

We got confused on the date of our booking, and the receptionist accomodated us anyway. Absolutely nice and attentive. Great pasta👌🏻

Been coming here for years. Couldn’t ask for a more Covid secure venue with all the space and extra precautions. The open front and street seating in this warm weather is a lovely change. Fantastic food as always, and excellent service.

Had a great birthday celebration with friends. Serve very good- our waitress was very efficient, helpful and charming. Prosecco a bit overpriced.

Someone had taken our booking upon arrival so we were stuck with table at the back and not outside as we had asked for. Wait or took our bottle of wine with some wine left in it. Food was okay and atmosphere good but poor service.

Was a busy night but service was quite slow at first. Took a while before anyone came to take our order. That being said... absolutely delicious food! Highly recommend- plus on a nice sunny day fantastic outdoor space :)

Buonasera scores 10/10 every time. My friends had just come back from Italy, and one of us saw quite a rare dish. It was beautiful, and authentic. The people there always help you enjoy a wonderful dining experience!

Had to ask a few times for water. Asked for our steaks to be done medium, they were rare so we sent them back. It was super busy but good atmosphere and good value for money

Service was accommodating and friendly, we were just left unattended a couple of times, perhaps as we were sitting out the front. Not a big deal though and other than that it was all excellent.

Food is always delicious and very reasonably priced, however, service is sometimes below par especially when busy but don't let this put you off!
