I really wanted to give this restaurant so much more, but it let me down. There are options across the street but we decided to go in and give it a try. One problem was the speed. We went in on a Saturday and it...More

Old style Italian restaurant, that's been there for ages. Decor is from a typical 60's 'glamorous' Italian, but don't be put off because it works and it's lovely. The menu and wine list is small and that's good, the food is good old school and...More

Went there 5 mins after they had opened and the ground floor was already full of diners - this tells me it's popular! We sat upstairs and were the only people up there and that felt odd - however ten minutes later upstairs was full...More

Myself, my wife and a friend had booked a table for 3 at 6:30pm - place almost empty then but heaving later. The serving staff all seemed new and there for fun and a giggle rather than some good service. When we have been before...More

Arrived in Peckham and saw Il Guardinio, it looks traditional and well kept, sat downstairs, such a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and the meal was excellent, we will definitely be back!

Edwardo, the chef and owner, washed dishes here for years, learned the business and then took over from the Sardinian founder. He hasn't changed a thing, which remains its charm. The menu is as stable as a planetary orbit, the decor is exactly as it...More

So Peckham is getting a bit pretentious and here's somewhere that bucks the trend. Staff are very friendly and the quality Italian food is well priced and delicious! There is an outdoor upstairs area 'giardino' and two indoor dining floors. Great atmosphere enjoyed very much!

Despite a very friendly welcome, attentive service, shabby/cosy ambience and reasonable prices the food was no more authentic or special than an average cook could manage in their own kitchen. The deep fried zucchini (limp) and my pizza (with pale, undercooked base) were especially disappointing...More
