Padella confirms rumours of second site in Shoreditch

London pasta specialist Padella has confirmed rumours that it is opening a second site in Shoreditch, after opening its popular Borough Market original in 2016.

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

Rumours that the pasta-focused site would be opening another restaurant first surfaced in July this year. A statement released over the weekend confirmed that this was the case, and that Padella would be opening a second site on Phipp Street in Shoreditch in early 2020.

It added: “Padella will continue to serve simple and affordable pasta dishes and will be moving their existing bakery to the site.”

According to the premises licence application posted on Twitter in July, the restaurant is proposing opening hours of 8am to 11pm from Monday to Sunday, and applied to sell alcohol between the hours of 11am and 11pm.

Also known for its queues that snake round the building into the nearby food market, Padella now operates with WalkIn app which allows users to queue remotely. Its pasta dishes range from £4 for gnocchi and nutmeg to £11 for tagliarini with Exmouth mussels, chilli, garlic, parsley and lemon.

Padella will join the likes of St Leonards, Mãos and Leroy as recent openings in the area.
