Summary

An excellent “cheap ’n’ cheerful choice” – this “small neighbourhood place in gentrified Peckham” has won more-than-local renown for its “wonderful modern Italian food, executed with style and elegance”. There’s a “very good if limited menu (three choices each of starter, main and pudding)” and “lovely staff who are attentive in the right way”.

Summary

This three-year-old, “heart-of-Peckham gem” offers “consistently good Italian cooking with vivid flavours in even the simplest dishes”; and its “good value” makes it “very popular with local hipsters”. (There’s now also a Deptford spin-off too called Marcella.)

Summary

“The menus are short, the food excellent” at this two-year-old Italian, seemingly “home-from-home for Peckham hipsters: last time I dined there, twice as many men had beards as were clean-shaven!”

Summary

The “simple confidence of the Italian cooking” helps inspire rave reviews for this neighbourhood yearling, hailed by fans as “a perfect culinary experience”; the odd critic though – while acknowledging “it’s fairly decent” – feels “the trendy Peckham effect means prices are drifting up”.

"We feel this restaurant has slipped since last year. The pasta is still a delight but the other dishes are less so. Also, there are some tables which really feel cramped and its hard to have an enjoyable meal for two when you are squished next to the toilets and the stairs down to the kitchen.... menu is a little short too, if you dont want to eat "anything"."
