Stevie Parle Opens Pastaio in Soho

Pasta master Stevie Parle has opened Pastaio on Soho’s Ganton Street. Pastaio, the term for a person who makes pasta by hand, will specialise in, you guessed it, fresh pasta. You’ll know Parle from runaway successes like Palatino, Craft London and Sardine so Pastaio is in very good hands.

The interior of the restaurant, just off Carnaby Street, has been styled by Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio. The lastest in a line of collaborations between the pair the design draws inspiration from the kind of industrial materials used in a professional kitchen, incorporating bold and colourful elements (the boldly coloured wall mural is pretty epic to behold) that celebrate the fresh ingredients and produce that’s on the table.

The wonderfully Italian menu features starters like clams cooked in butter and grillo or the fried mozzarella, nduja and honey sandwich or sample the simple but effective heritage tomatoes and basil. For mains expect to gently up the carbs with Parle’s delectable pasta creations. Pasta dishes include grouse, rabbit and pork agnoli or why not try the crab, courgette, yellow tomato, marjoram, fusilli. Again, the simple option that will never disappoint is the wild mushroom tagliatelle with garlic and olive oil.

Tiramisu, chocolate and cheery tart or raspberry sorbet are all dessert options, or experiment a little with Parle’s pistachio and rose ice cream or let the olive oil carry on from the starter and main course with the olive oil and amaretto ice cream.

Italian favourites like Prosecco and Aperol slushies feature heavily on the drinks menu, and wine from lesser known Italian growers showcased by the restaurant.

Say ciao to Pastaio!
