Oi Spaghetti is a culinary oasis in the heart of Peckham’s cultural quarter. With walls bathed in dark olive, pretty foliage and great music, over the last 3 years Oi has created a vibe that leaves people feeling relaxed and replete.
With mindfulness to organic ingredients and animal welfare, chef and owner Francesco prepares few deliciously balanced spaghetti, with a number of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free choices.
Oi Spaghetti’s success is in equal measures down to sheer gastronomic pleasure, Francesco’s consummate hosting and the atmosphere – largely down to his partner Tatiana’s great eye for interiors, light, furniture and textiles.

The bruschetta was sadly overdone and the wine came out of a box. The pasta was so/so but nothing special. The service was great but that wouldn't be enough to tempt me back, unfortunately. There are much better choices for food (and pasta!) in Peckham.

Hello Jennifer, I am sorry that you did not have a good experience at ours. I can only apologise for the brushetta being overdone. We do pride ourselves to make excellent spaghetti dishes, properly cooked and with fine ingredients, I apologise if they were not up to standard. We offer a very good italian Merlot that is in affinity with our recipes, the producers choose the box as a better way to preserve it and thus add less sulphites. I hope you will try us another time. All the best, Franco

This place is a real gem. I brought my other half for his birthday. The ambience is great, it's very small (definitely recommend booking as they were turning people away) - the staff are extremely friendly and attentive. I loved that the kitchen was right there with you, the chef would look over and ask if the food was good! The menu is simple but very well executed, we loved our food and overall had a great experience. I will definitely be back.

I loved this place! It's super small with about four tables inside and three outside; the kitchen is in the same room as the dining and is equally small, but the staff is a well-oiled machine and expertly juggled orders from the restaurant as well as take away. The food is incredible and perfectly demonstrates the benefit of having a few dishes and doing them really well. My partner and I had the mushroom spaghetti which was amazing, but the other guests seemed equally impressed with their choices. Give it a go and support this brilliant local independent venue.

Absolutely delicious spaghetti AND tiramisu! Worth noting it’s BYOWine (with corkage) as they only have one red which is a good table wine already.
Wonderful team running the show - definitely worth going!

A lovely and supercute place. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is tasty and fulfilling. I am not a fan of anchovies and I enjoyed the pasta with them. The price is reasonable. It is tiny, so it is recommended to book in advance.

Best pasta I’ve had in London, hands down! The owner Francesco is a great guy and has created a cosy restaurant with a great atmosphere and a number of really tasty dishes. Shout out to the staff too who were super friendly. It’s a small restaurant so book early and you won’t be disappointed.

Oi Spaghetti is an absolute gem! In the colder months, there are only ten available seats, so make sure to make a reservation in advance. Francesco has crafted an amazing menu of thoughtful dishes. The atmosphere is delightful. Make sure you leave room for the tiramisu! You won’t regret it.

This tiny unassuming shack houses the best spaghetti, hands down. Simple and delicious in equal measures this food embodies love and understanding for the ingredients combined with an understanding of true hospitality. I travel for this. An absolute favourite.

We love Oi Spahetti, it's a great little spot.

On this occasion it was unfortunately boiling hot inside, and I kept getting knocked by the waitress as she went past me - which I understand is because the space is so tiny but it is avoidable.

Otherwise lovely as always.

Great, friendly service from the charming staff, who cook the meals in front of us. The place is tiny (4 tables) but it is as cozy and charming as the food the delicious. Thumbs up all the way a huge kudos to the staff, who are friendly and energetic, making us feel like we're dining at a friend's place. Will most definitely recommend to friends and come back for more. Well done!
