Islington’s New Italian: Radici

Islington’s New Italian: Radici

Spring has sprung and with it comes a whole new set of restaurants, including Radici, a new Italian trattoria coming to Islington and opening next week.

It’s part of the D & D London Group (Aster, Bluebird, Avenue et al) and will be the work of Francesco Mazzei, Chef Patron of Sartoria who will be cooking up a menu that that reflects his Calabrian heritage – Radici after all does mean roots.

You’ll also find dishes from the Southern Italian areas of Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, Sicily and Sardinia. The menu will be ever-evolving but we know that it’s going to include charcuterie and cheeses as well as some of Francesco’s favourite dishes from home such as salt cod with potatoes, tomato sauce, onions, capers and black olives; calf liver stuffed with pancetta, garlic and sage, served with smoked potato mash and eggless pasta with southern Italian lamb, pork and beef ragu. We’ve also been told to look out for the seafood cavatelli, king prawns salmoriglio and oven baked baccala. On Sundays head there for the feasting menu and make sure you visit for pizza straight from the wood-fired oven.

Created by David d’Almada of Sagrada studios, Radici will be laid-back and rustic. Clean shapes and natural colours will be joined by the iconic Italian tuff stone and dashes of blue in the furniture and crockery. In the summer (yes, you have to think even further ahead) you’ll be able to sit out on the terrace on Almeida Street, or hide away in the wine room or private dining room.

Find out more about the opening here!
