Marcella, located in Deptford, is the younger sister restaurant to Peckham staple Artusi, and they’ve kept the same format of a simple space, a small menu, and great Italian food. We’d suggest getting the artichoke starter, and then leaning on the pasta dishes - our favourites were the squid ink bucatini, and a spaghetti that’s drenched in an excellent sauce of chilli, garlic, lemon, and olive oil.
