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.
