Chef and restaurateur Stevie Parle is opening Pastaio, a restaurant serving fresh, handmade pasta opening in London's Soho this October.
Pastaio, translated as one who makes pasta by hand, will combine striking interiors, art and eclectic music to offer a neighbourhood restaurant feel.
The menu will feature simple, seasonal plates priced between £7 and £11, including tonarelli cacio e pepe; potato and gravy ravioli; cassarecce, pesto, green beans and potato; grouse, rabbit and pork agnoli; and long fusilli, crab courgette, yellow tomato and marjoram. Additionally there will be a selection of smaller antipasti dishes, including anchovy-stuffed pepperoncini, fried mozzarella sandwich, and cured meats and sweet pickles.
Prosecco and Aperol slushies will take centre stage on a drinks list of Italian cocktails, wines, spirits and beers.
The site will be designed by Tom Dixon's Design Research Studio, and will feature three long terrazzo tables for communal dining, and a mural incorporating the lines and shapes found in different pasta varieties.
Parle said: "I've been obsessed with making fresh pasta since I first learned to cook. Over the last few years at Rotorino and Palatino we've managed to make fresh pasta consistently and fast and I'm super excited to bring this, affordable handmade pasta to Soho."
