As luck would have it, our usual Italian go-to was closed. My sons chose Il Birrificio because of the craft beer, which was part of the pleasure for sure. But we also loved the food. The mozzarella stick was awesome for starters. The size of the meals was generous. Those who had pizzas were happy and I loved my calimari. Salads were as fresh as can be.

We visited this little gem on Friday night- a group of 8. Decided to share entrees, pastas & pizzas and all were great. Unfortunately they were out of Arancini balls which was a disappointment for all -maybe next time! You have to try the Italian doughnuts for dessert. They were surprisingly light and we all enjoyed a taste.
The staff are awesome-we enjoyed great service

This was a surprise find in Camberwell.Authentic and traditional hearty Italian fare and some really good craft beers.We had the Black Betty IPA and it was awesome.The pizzas didn't feel heavy and the Bolognese sauce was one of the best we had.Does get busy on the weekends and therefore bookings are essential to avoid disappointments in case there is no space or they run out of things! Will definitely go back.

Had a fantastic meal here. Some great beers although many on the menu were not available. They are also pretty pricey. Small and unpretentious restaurant but the food was well above expectations. Can't wait to go back.

Our Group went Saturday night and had a lovely meal of Pasta and Pizza. I have to say for me ~ it the best gnocchi I have ever had... Pizza was great too with a thin crust (which I like) and all our meals had great flavour. The staff were excellent. We found the food and drinks were good value for money. A thoroughly enjoyable night and a place I will definitely go back to again. Thank you
