A stylish Italian in the middle of Deptford.
It’s clear that a lot of careful preparation has gone into Festa Sul Prato. Soft grey walls, muted black lights and a light wooden counter make the place feel more like a Scandi neighbourhood café than a refined Italian restaurant hidden within the suburbs of Deptford. The menu, which is scribbled neatly across a wall that frames the kitchen, is packed with simple dishes that make the most of some truly lovely ingredients. Take the dish featuring a pair of sausages from nearby Bell & Sons, that was so good I audibly grunted with approval after each bite. Meanwhile, a rich and hoppy chocolate tart was made with a red ale from Deptford’s Villages brewery.
But things began to fall down when it came to the delivery. Some dishes simply lack finesse – a starter of squid and pancetta came out oily, while a risotto main could have been lifted from average to irresistible with a big handful of parmesan.
These quibbles aside, Festa Sul Prato is a decent neighbourhood eatery that’ll be a particularly nice spot during the summer months, given its location on the edge of a park. As long as you don’t mind being surrounded by people grunting over sausages.
Festa offers space for up to 40 guests inside and in the summer outside space for up 60 people. We can host parties for all occasions. Festa is also ideal for children’s birthday parties as we are in Folkestone Gardens with the playground and skatepark right next to the premises.
At Festa sul Prato, we take great care in the selection of our ingredients and produce, and ensure that we only choose the very best.

Great find in Deptford. Wonderful new Italian cafe/ restaurant on the edge of a pretty little park. Cool, minimal interior, Great food with daily specials, simple dishes with quality ingredients, beautifully cooked. Excellent wine. The staff were friendly, efficient and very welcoming. I can't praise it too highly. Well worth seeking out and making it a regular haunt. We will certainly be back.
