This “tiny and impeccable” Italian in Peckham “punches well above its weight”, thanks to a team who “really put the effort in”. Star billing goes to the “fresh pasta to die for”, but there’s “flavour in every dish”, and locals count themselves “so lucky to have it”. Named after the 19th-century doyen of Italian cuisine, Pellegrino Artusi, it’s also something of a “hipster heaven – check out the beard count!”.

A “limited seasonal menu knocks it out of the park” at this “star neighbourhood restaurant” in Peckham (named after Pellegrino Artusi, the 19th-century ‘godfather of Italian cuisine’). There’s a “laid-back, hipster” vibe, while the “simple and cheap ingredients are well chosen and delivered at a compelling price”.

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”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
