I have been there many times and I always have been served well and pleased with the food quality 😀 I love it. I have fun with the waiters, Italian style and friendly environment. 😀 I would recommend it ❤

As on previous occasions from the moment we walked through the door we couldn't fault the staff, charming, thoughtful, helpful and attentive at all times. The food is delicious, old fashioned Italian - the sea bass was beautifully cooked, as were the other dishes we chose, the sweet trolley was every pudding lovers dream! The wine waiter was helpful with... More

Being locals, we have frequently visited Numero Uno and over the last year every time we have visited I have said, 'never again', but this time, I really mean it. As a starter I went for the traditional Parma ham and melon, the three meagre slices of melon were hard and covered with literally, half a pig - completely wrong.... More

My wife and I have been regular customers at this first rate Italian for many years. We attended it when we were living in the area and now that we are living in Surrey we still frequented whenever we go to London. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and efficient. But overall it's the atmosphere and ambience... More

Northcote road is a popular hang out for young married types looking for lunch on the weekend with their children. Personally I cringe at their sense of entitlement, filling up tables wanting endless service and then sharing a single pizza. So I was pleased to find Numero Uno, which looked a far better proposition. I was not disappointed - the... More

I went here with my Godmother for a long overdue catchup and was pleased to see that their menu states that they cater for allergies. Sadly (unlike many italian restaurants nowdays) they had no gluten free pasta/pizza bases (I'm a coeliac) but I wasn't concerned as they had a lot of other options and said they'd be able to feed...

After reading raving reviews I decided it was time to give it a go and been there twice in a month. The first time all went quite well with honest food and a charming smile from an older waiter who was very helpful and attentive. The second time the food was average at best and the waiter of the night... More

They allow people to smoke in the seats just outside , which fills the restaurant with cigarette smoke while you are eating . The accompanying vegetables that are served with the dishes especially the potato s are not fresh , and tasted pre cooked from the day before . Not worth the money

I absolutely love this authentic Italian place on Northcote road. The food is amazing, service is second to none & you really feel as though you're transported to Italy during your visit. I recommend for genuine tasty Italian food & the vibe to match. It works for date nights just as it does for dinner with friends. I had the... More

Decent Italien restaurant with nice ambience. The food is Ok to good. The menu is very long and could probably do with some culling to both help the kitchen and keep things fresh. The downside is the slow service - took over two hours to order and serve two course (with no apology or recognition of that).

Thank freetogotravel
