This (no bookings) restaurant serves a variety of affordably priced handmade pasta dishes, including some of Trullo's 'greatest hits'. Padella (meaning pan in Italian) serves just a short seasonal menu of eight pasta dishes, along with a few antipasti (like a ball of burrata cheese with Tuscan olive oil and beef fillet carpaccio), plus dessert options.
This two-floor restaurant (open every day) takes over from the old Degustibus restaurant (accessible from within Borough Market as well as the street) and features an open kitchen, marbled counter seating and a handful of tables. The pasta is made fresh on site before being served and rolled in full view of the passers-by.
A taste of Italy
Tagliarini with brown shrimps, green and yellow courgette; squid ink tagliarini with mussels, chilli and oregano; ravioli of pumpkin and marjoram with sage butter; and Trullo’s signature pappardelle with eight-hour beef shin ragu.
Order one of the three classic Italian cocktails - Negroni, Americano and Sbagliato and finish with an espresso which can be topped with grappa or samba to make 'cafe corrupt'.
