Co-owners Elisa Cavigliasso, her boyfriend Alberto Umoret and their friends Enrico Princi and Paolo Gaudino grew up together in Turin and after moving to England missed the fresh pasta and family sauce recipes of their native Piemonte. So they opened this casual, authentic ‘pastificio’ serving fresh pasta dishes to eat in or take away.
The pasta and sauces, ranging from reginette al barbera with slow-cooked venison ragù to bucatini with monkfish in a tomato sauce, are all cooked fresh on site every day, using meat sourced from the Butcher’s Quarter in Tib Street and seafood from Out of the Blue in Chorlton. There are some terrific vegan options such as the delicious Malfadine di Farro al Daniele (organic wholegrain spelt pasta tossed with asparagus, chestnut mushroom and confit tomatoes) and for pud fig and chocolate ravioli. Wines are from their native Piemonte.
