Prosecco slushies and fresh pasta are coming to Pastaio in Soho

Summer might be slowly coming to a close, but there’s this Autumn opening to look forward to!

Stevie Parle is opening a new restaurant which will serve fresh pasta, with a side of Prosecco slushies.

The chef and restaurateur use to work at The River Café and will open his sixth restaurant in the capital, Pastaio on Soho’s Ganton Street.

The new spot will focus on Italian cooking with the name of the restaurant Pastaio translating as a pasta maker, and refers to chefs or cooks who make pasta by hand. The menu will all be hand made, with seasonal pasta dishes averaging £7 – £11.

They’ll be a British seasonal twist on dishes too, including casarecce which is a loosely free-form shape pasta with pesto, green beans and potato; gravy ravioli; grouse, rabbit and pork agnoli and cacio e pepe spaghetti.

If pasta isn’t your thing, they’ll also be Italian inspired smaller plates, like anchovy-stuffed pepperoncini and a fried mozzarella sandwich.

You can also pair your pasta with a cheeky prosecco or Aperol slushie for just £4, plus they’ll be Italian cocktails, wines, spirits and beers. Ace.

Parle said: “Over the last few years at Rotorino and Palatino we’ve managed to make fresh pasta consistent and fast and I’m super excited to bring affordable handmade pasta to Soho.”

The restaurant will open at 19 Ganton Street, Carnaby, WIF 9BN this October.

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
