A fresh pasta shop also accompanies the restaurant celebrating vermicelli. This pasta type has a rich history – originally made in Italy back in the 14th century and mastered by Maestro Martino da Como – the first celebrity chef back in the day, who created many dishes that provide the concrete basis of Italian cuisine and the fresh Italian pasta! Vermicelli was adopted by many Asian countries, especially in China and Japan where the variety was adapted into noodles – made from rice flour and in a thinner variation than it’s Italian cousin.

Their focus is to celebrate the original identity of this pasta and bring it to the Tooting community in an authentic and organic way!
