Founders Eduardo Wansbrough and Daniele Pino will launch the restaurant on Market Row on 29 September with Rome-born Pino heading up the kitchen.
La Nonna will have a focus on pasta and Roman recipes with the likes of carbonara, cacio e pepe and the mushroom and truffle dishes on the menu as well as daily changing specials. It will serve a selection of natural and organic wines championing Italian producers, alongside a selection of Italian aperitifs.
The 38-cover, 650sq ft restaurant will feature an open kitchen with a counter-dining area with bar stools and also have a deli offer with the brand’s DIY fresh pasta kits available to buy alongside a range of Italian cheeses and cured meats.
La Nonna, which takes inspiration from the recipes of Pino’s grandmother, was founded by the duo in 2017. In 2018 they opened their first permanent site in Flat Iron Square with a second site opening in Box Park Shoreditch the following year. The pair are also the founders of contemporary Spanish food concept EDū London, also located in Flat Iron Square.
“Since 2017, London has been enjoying my family’s recipes and it is a dream come true to bring our fantastic pasta dishes to our own restaurant in Brixton’s Market Row,” says Pino. “Expect the same vibe as our site at Flat Iron Square, with more space to create new Italian dishes, pair wines, serve cocktails, and showcase the skills and craft of cooking fresh pasta dishes. We are going to have a lot of fun.”
