Padella Shoreditch

London Bridge pasta palace Padella is opening a second site on Phipp Street in Shoreditch in early 2020, following on from the roaring success its original site, which opened in Borough Market in 2016.

Meaning pan in Italian, Padella is a sister restaurant to Trullo in Islington, which was launched in 2010 by restaurateurs Tim Siadatan and Jordan Frieda.

Padella in Borough Market now operates with WalkIn, an app that allows users to wait for a table remotely. Its pasta dishes range from £4 for gnocchi and nutmeg to £11 for tagliarini with Exmouthmussels, chilli, garlic, parsley and lemon.
