What: Part of the restaurant group D&D, Radici, is an authentic Italian restaurant trattoria. The name translates as ‘roots’ in Italian to represent Head Chef Francesco Mazzei’s roots in Islington where he has been for 20 years.
New? Formerly Almeida, Radici opened its doors 18th April 2017.
On the Menu: Francesco Mazzei aimed to bring the food of his childhood to his London home so the menu reflects the Calabrian cuisine of his heritage, as well as incorporating dishes from the southern Italian areas of Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, Sicily, and Sardinia. Pizzas and bread are baked in a traditional wood fired oven while the ever-evolving menu currently has dishes like seafood fettucine, roast king prawns salmoriglio and aubergine parmigiana.
