Pizza chefs must round out the doughy base of practice, sauce it with knowledge, then enrich their understanding with cheesy metaphors. Take a slice from some culinary big cheeses with today's Groupon: £17 for any pizza or pasta dish for two, along with a bottle of house wine at Donna Margherita.
Critically acclaimed among serious foodies from publications such as the London Evening Standard, The Guardian, and Time Out Food, this South London eatery offers authentic Italian fare cooked in a traditional open wood-fired oven pizzeria. With its exposed red open brickwork, mural, football shirts and framed photos, Donna Margherita sits like a slice of little Italy on its Lavender Hill corner.
Donna Margherita showcases a medley of pizzas alongside an extensive menu of traditional Italian pastas. Tasked with living up to their moniker, Donna Margherita pizzas present a compendium of hearty pleasures. Try the Diavalo, a crisp base heaped with tomato, mozzarella, Neapolitan salami, lashings of parmesan, and finished with chill, extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil (£8.95). Or sample the delicious Napoli, comprising tomato, anchovies, black olives, capers, oregano, and extra virgin olive oil with garlic and basil (£7.99). Alternatively, twirl the spaghetti a 'vongole around your fork, cooked with fresh clams, garlic and touch of chilli and parsley (£10.50), or delve into the homemade gnocchi with fresh buffalo mozzarella and basil, parmesan and tomato sauce (£7.99).

Calamares and prawns made a light but plentiful starter and didn't need any adornment. A Donna Margherita pizza was generously dotted with creamy mozzarella and truly tasty cherry tomatoes on a wafer-thin, smoky base.

From the specials menu we chose Rings of pasta with olive oil, aubergine, pesto, cherry tomatoe, sea bass and chili. The combination of perfectly al dente pasta with plenty of olive oil, the concentrated taste of eggplant and cherry tomatoes was so good, I could have eaten a second portion straight away. I would not have needed the sea bass but then again it came as a welcomed addition. This was one of the nicest pasta dishes outside of Italy I have eaten in a long time
