THE Ital­ian WAY

A culi­nary clash of trat­to­ria and the Thames, the se­cret of Trullo’s plea­sures are sim­ple: this is food from the heart

Since open­ing in 2010, Trullo in High­bury has be­come one of

Lon­don’s finest Ital­ian restau­rants. Its modus operandi is easy to un­der­stand: use the best sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents, treat them with the re­spect they de­serve and plate them up with a panache that stays true to their Ital­ian roots.

‘Look­ing back, Trullo was born of three things: the places that Jordan and I have worked, our en­thu­si­asm and pas­sion, and a lot of love and re­spect for each other,’ says Trullo’s founder, Tim Si­a­datan. ‘It’s a restau­rant built for fam­ily. For bet­ter, for worse, we are like broth­ers. Fam­ily is what Trullo em­bod­ies. We have key staff who have been with us for years and who feel like ex­tended re­la­tions. When a restau­rant is based on that, it is a good recipe.’

The dishes that fol­low are some of our favourites from the restau­rant – true Ital­ian clas­sics – that will find a happy home in any cook’s reper­toire. They’re not dif­fi­cult nor time-con­sum­ing, sim­ply thor­oughly de­li­cious. In­vite the fam­ily over and give them a try.
