What: La Tagliata Wine Bar & Italian Kitchen
In a nutshell: Pastas, small plates and local Italian wines.
Summing it all up: Picking up from where Sardo left off, the La Tagliata team are moving into Grafton Way with their traditional Italian cooking, which means masses of tagliatelle, plus a wine bar where you’ll be able to get your hands on 50 different bottles.
Spitalfield’s La Tagliata Italian Kitchen is about to get its first sister restaurant when La Tagliata Wine Bar & Italian Kitchen opens in Fitzrovia.
It’ll be setting up in the venue that used to be home to Sardo on Grafton Way, along with a new 25-seater wine bar to keep your thirst quenched with traditional Italian wines.
There’ll be a hefty menu full of classic Italian food, including small plates bucatini all’Amatriciana with cured pork cheek. There’ll also be a chance to try Arrosticini, lamb skewers that are a signature dish of the Abruzzo region, and, if our experience of the locally made ones is anything to go by, will be *the* thing to order with your glass of Pinot.
Also on the menu will be (get out your Google translate):
- Le melanzane alla parmigiana
- I gamberi alla Fra’Diavolo
- Pizza ‘Nduja’ e cime di rapa
Naturally, there’ll be loads of tagliatelle for you to choose from too, including their classic Tuscan-inspired beef version, plus tuna, and chicken.Interestingly, they’ll be paying homage to the departed Sardo taking on the former restaurant’s signature dish, crab linguine.
