A “SECRET” garden shed hides what’s been hailed as one of the UK’s best restaurants – with just three tables but a dish said to be “so good” it’ll sway all critics.
This is despite it being based in a back street car park, with only three dining tables and a minimal menu.
And the intimate dining experience has won praise for one of Oi Spaghetti’s limited dishes in particular.

Owners Francesco and Tatiania bought the cabin in 2015 before turning it into a restaurant, painting it cream and adding foliage.
Francesco now cooks for 15 hours each day in a open kitchen, typically serving meals for just 15 diners over that time.
The menu offers only three starters and five choices of spaghetti mains, according to the Mirror.
These include what’s called The Classic, featuring crushed organic garlic, chilly flakes, fresh parsley, bacon and kate.
But especially popular seems to be the only dessert, home-made Tiramisu.
Francesco prepares nine portions each morning, using locally-bought cocoa powder, coffee, lady finger biscuits, marsala wine, mascarpone cheese and organic eggs.
He insisted: “If you think you don’t like Tiramisu, try mine.”
He also told of his devotion to cooking what he calls “real food“.
Francesco added: “So many of us big city people are so privileged yet have an unhealthy diet.
“We are so disconnected from our roots, from nature and from each other.”
TripAdvisor reviews include one satisfied diner raving: “Wonderful spaghetti and the best Tiramisu I’ve ever eaten, in an atmospheric setting.”
Another called the place “Peckham’s best-kept secret”, while Oi Spaghetti was also described as a “quirky place” offering a “wonderful night out”.
And Francesco was called “a brilliant chef and guy”, while the restaurant was recommended as somewhere with a “a small but perfectly formed menu”.
A different poster called it “the cutest little place”, while there was also warmth for how “a small setting makes for a cosy experience”.
The £8 Tiramasu was welcomed as “first rate” and also “a dream”.
