Emilia’s will serve fried parmesan balls, béchamel-enriched bolognese, and proper Genovese pesto when it launches at the end of October.
The 35-cover restaurant will open for coffee every day at 10.30am while the chefs prepare the pasta in an open kitchen for lunch.
It is the brainchild of founder Andrew Macleod, whose lifelong dream is to open the best pasta restaurant outside Italy.
He has teamed up with Genoa-born head chef Simone Stagnitto to create a series of dishes inspired by Stagnitto's grandmother's cooking.
The pair have spent the last 18 months studying the 'science and geometry' of pasta and travelling across Italy to craft their menu.
Macleod said: “Emilia’s will offer the tastiest Italian pasta in London served in a theatrical environment – a memorable experience at a very affordable price point – you’re not going to want to eat pasta anywhere else! I can’t wait for Londoners to try Simone’s incredible dishes, which burst with flavour and sunshine.”
Emilia’s will open at Unit C3 Ivory House, St Katharine Docks, London.
