Service and story
PizzArte pretty much does what it says on the tin, a family-friendly Italian restaurant in south east London. Set up by Roman, his business partner Alberti and their wives – Ekaterina and Diana, the team has over 50 years of service industry experience between them, serving up traditional recipes in a respectable simple manner.
There is a wide selection of classic Italian courses to choose from. My partner and I enjoyed the Antipasto to start, a hefty selection of cured meats and cheeses served alongside the occasional olive, artichoke and crispy bread. For mains, I dived into a creamy, meaty well-balanced Lasagne, my partner enjoyed the Speck and Gorgonzola pizza lovingly washed down with a glass of well-tempered Montepulciano.
Roman insisted on the Torta Limone for pudding; a soft crunch meringue top, juicy lemon and soft biscuit base. Delicious.
The restaurant is bright, airy and looks just as welcoming on the outside as it is on the inside. The evening we visited there was a great atmosphere, locals enjoying good food and chat, I got the feeling that if you chose to sit down at a neighbours table you’d be warmly welcomed. Apparently there are a few regulars already, one guy has been five times – (at the time of our visit they’d been open for five weeks).
Like many great independent eateries in #SELondon artists are exhibited on the walls. The current is an art gamer exhibit until March. If you’re a local artist interested in exhibiting get in touch.
Best option is to book a table or just walk in.
The restaurant is new so they are finding their way and are definitely off to a great start. We wish them lots of luck and urge families and friends alike to pop in. We will definitely be back for the lasagne!
