Italian | South London

The menu at Artusi changes all the time, chalked up on a wall to salivate over, and it is always hard to choose from. The dishes match the décor – inspired, fresh, no-nonsense. Italian-inspired, pasta is made on-site daily. One day there might be cacio e pepe, and the next pappardelle with merguez sausages. Meat comes from renowned neighbourhood butcher Flock & Herd.

"The lamb was extraordinary – young but complicated. The trio was exquisite: nothing obliterated anything else, nothing was confusing, everything worked in harmony. If this was the measure of the place, its popularity is no surprise." READ REVIEW

"Grilled pieces of skin-on mackerel come with the sweetest, most juvenile petals of raw globe artichoke dressed with the freshest of peppery olive oils. Most of this isn't so much cooking as an expression of extremely good taste." READ REVIEW

"But here's the thing - I really enjoyed my meal. Blips with service, the wine list and the preparation of pasta can easily be rectified - what you can't fake is the kind of personality, passion and style that, despite fairly obvious errors here and there, left us feeling we'd still eagerly return."
