A South London, neighbourhood Italian with flair. Artusi captures the wonderful trend that is happening on the contemporary dining scene – ingredient-led, seasonal-focus and unfussy excellence. And the ethos of Italian cuisine fits right in with this way of thinking. Perhaps that’s why Artusi has mastered the zeitgeist of laid-back and delicious. The appreciation of great ingredients means that the vegetarian options are every bit as enticing as meat dishes. The confidently simple menu leaves you with an impression they know what they’re doing. And we were delighted by the restaurant’s keenness to accommodate vegan needs. For veggies and meat-eaters alike, the pasta alone is worth a trip to Peckham.
