I was disappointed. Good value and the artichoke with anchovy mayonnaise was a highlight, and the ice cream was great but I don't think this restaurant is worthy of spot number four.

After having looked forward to going to Artusi's for several months the outcome of our evening was a shock to the system. We went on a Wednesday night around 9pm. The place was busy, but far from packed. After a pale and slightly insecure welcome by one of the waitresses and a short moment of confusion regarding our reservation we were sat on a table for two. We ordered the Ricotta and braised Radicchio and the Oxtongue with Salsa Verde for starters. The radicchio, despite its rather beautiful presentation, tasted like a barrel of vinegar and was so bitter that I only managed a few bites. The salsa verde was great, although very British (containing a lot of Horseradish) and the only good thing we ate at Artusi's. The oxtongue was completely overcooked and had the consistency of a damp pile of tissues - swallowing was a challenge. We asked for more bread, which never arrived. We ordered a second starter to share and went for the Tagliatelle with Duck. The pasta tasted homemade and was al dente, but rest of the dish just tasted like olives and was so salty that we downed half a bottle of water and two glasses of mediocre white wine in order to get through the dish. The biggest disaster however was the main course. We went for Beef cheek with parsnip purée and the Lamb shoulder with butternut squash. Like the oxtongue starter, both meats were so severely overcooked that you could have painted a wall with it, almost like a pâté, lacking flavour and being entirely unenjoyable. The butternut squash had a rubbery consistency and both mains went back to the kitchen largely untouched - while our waitress showed no concern when she cleared our full plates away. We weren't asked if we wanted dessert or coffee for a good half hour after our mains and eventually got a bill on which a bottle of wine had been added that we hadn't ordered.
All in all, this place is nothing but hype and the unnecessary import of yet another shoreditchy pseudo artisan place into Peckham. A trip to one of the local kebab places would have made a better evening. The only thing that is amazing about Artusi's is how they get away with it.

This place was amazing we went on a busy night but the service and quality of the food was fantastic.

Not only is this some of the best Italian food I have had in London but it is right on my doorstep - could not be happier! The food is simple, ingredient led and DELICIOUS (not to mention great value).  They also were brilliant at accommodating for my sister who is gluten & dairy free.  I would usually tell everyone to get booking but actually please don't, as I'd like to keep this place all to myself....
