Serving wood-fired pizzas inspired by the city of Naples, Battersea’s Made in South delights diners with their authentic and flavourful creations. From saltimbocca to tiramisu, the Italian restaurant offers guests a taste of traditional cuisine at reasonable prices in a comfortable, unpretentious atmosphere. Found on Lavender Hill within easy reach of Wandsworth Road and Clapham Junction overground stations and Clapham Common tube, Made in South serves their incredible pizzas six days a week (they’re open every day except Monday).
Upon entering Made in South on Battersea’s Lavender Hill, you’ll be met with the incredible smell of freshly baked pizza wafting through the restaurant’s charming premises. Although the most obvious draw to Made in South is the authentic Neapolitan pizzas, the restaurant is also well known for serving expertly-baked sourdough bread, which is taken to new heights by the rustic wood-fired pizza – hand-crafted in Naples, the oven reaches temperatures of up to 400 degrees.
Another customer favourite at Made in South is the tasty saltimbocca, an Italian dish consisting of veal topped with a variety of ingredients. Try the scamorza prosciutto cotto & funghi saltimbocca, served with smoked mozzarella, cooked ham and mushrooms, or keep it simple with the alla Napoletana variety complete with ricotta cheese, salami and mozzarella. And of course, the pizzas are a must-try – order the capricciosa (topped with black olives, mushrooms, artichoke, salami and mozzarella) or a classic pizza marinara and prepare to be blown away. Make sure to reserve ahead at this pizza paradise in London’s Battersea!
Such a find! Pizza is unreal, staff we very friendly, cute cheerful atmosphere, tomato and mozzarella salad was out of this world. Really good spot for a mid week supper
capiciosa pizza was delicious diavolla defeated my mate the are proper pizzas third visit, if it was local it would be a restaurant I would use
Small place serving some real and delicious pizza, priced well and topped with friendly service. Would definitely recommend it, probably not for massive groups of people.
Hadn’t been for a few months, but everything was up to usual high standards. Friendly service and delicious pizza. It’s refreshing to have a simple choice of wine at very reasonable prices. Very enjoyable!
I love a restaurant that know what it does well and focuses soley on it, in this case its pizza. 100% you have to try the burrata on top of your pizza. It takes it from great to amazing! We had a lovely italian waitress who was very attentive and quickly answered any questions we had. Between the four of us we ordered the made in south trio for entree (reccomended), diavola (reccomend for spice lovers it was beautiful with the burrata), Margarita funghi and prosciutto, foccacia rosmarino and pizza tango. We probably ordered too much food but it was all so good!!! Everything from the service to decor and atmosphere were 10/10. The restaurant fills up quickly on a Saturday night so bookings are reccomended. Don't be deceived by its humble surroundings and frontage, this is the best pizza in London hands down.
Don’t be fooled by the simple décor. This place is AMAZING. By far the best pizza I have ever had outside of Italy (maybe even including Italy) and I have had my fair share. The owners are Italian and this eatery is authentic to its core. The restaurant is simple and small, and the menu is classic. The service is friendly and efficient, and the prices are very reasonable. There is literally nothing not to like about Made in South! Top tip: the staff will always offer you a ball of buffalo mozzarella or burrata on top of your pizza – I took the plunge, it was amazing, but it is massive, so perhaps share one between two.
This is some of the best pizza we've had outside of Italy. They have mozzarella di buffalo in several forms. Great Caprese salad, burratina, prosciutto, cotto ham, excellent tomatoes and rocket - all so fresh and delicious. Nice thin-crust pizza, cooked in a wood-fired oven - very authentic. It's a little bit outside the City, but totally worth the drive! Try it - you'll never eat pizza from a regular pizzaria again.
This is the best pizza in London!! True essensence of authentic Italian cuisine. The atmosphere of made in south is homely and welcoming, my partner and I have returned here on special occasions regularly as it truly is a treat for all the senses!! Hint - a must try is having a ball of buffalo mozzarella in the centre of your pizza, trust us it sounds indulgent but will not disappoint!!!
Definitely the best pizza I ever eat in the UK. But not only that. It was one of the best pizza I ever eat in my life and I come from Italy. The wood fired oven along with fresh toppings put the pizza to another level. I`ll go back to Made in South the next time I`ll travel to London.
Truly the best authentic italian pizza cooked in the very best traditional wood oven. Great service by the staff who made us feel at home and fantastic food. Great atmosphere, nice background italian music too. After a good pizza for dessert I recommend the Straccetti di pizza con nutella very tasty. Overall a wonderful experience!
