Tim Siadatan and Jordan Freida follow-up the “dreamily authentic” Trullo just off Highbury Corner with another Italian venture, this time in the decidedly more central environs of Borough Market. Padella will serve a variety of quite keenly priced pasta dishes, including some of Trullo’s ‘greatest hits’.
The restaurant opens on 29 March with a 50% off food soft-launch offer taking place Thursday 24-Sunday 27.
Padella’s menu will be made up of eight handmade pasta dishes, priced from £7-£10.50, using fresh pasta rolled in the window of the restaurant just hours before service, and slow cooked sauces and Italian ragus.
On the menu: Pappardelle with 8-hour beef shin ragu; Tagliarini with brown shrimps, green and yellow courgette; Squid ink tagliarini with mussels, chilli and oregano; Ravioli of pumpkin & marjoram with sage butter; Tagliatelle with wild mushrooms.
Padella will offer kitchen counter dining as well as table seating, a small selection of Italian wines, UK craft beers, prosecco and classic Italian aperitifs; Negroni, Americano and Sbagliato. As well as a range of Italian coffee, which can be topped up with Grappa or Sambuca to make Caffe Correto.
Desserts include: Salted caramel ice cream, Tiramisu and Pear & almond tart.
Padella will take the former degustibus site at the Southwark Street entrance to Borough Market.
