Inspired by Italy, cooked in England
The chefs at Padella have devoted themselves to serve food with integrity: the pasta takes you back to those homemade dinners at your Italian girlfriend’s place, back in high school, sitting across from nona’s disapproving looks.
The modern industrial interior in black and white looks good on anyone; this is the place where workers and tourists alike come together and mingle without any fuss. Make sure to ask for a seat at the bar because you will get the unique opportunity the see the chefs work their magic right in front of you. Being ‘banished’ to the lower level isn’t a bad thing; because it opens the door to less frenetic environment where you and your new date can enjoy the food in romantic quiet.
