Cucina Asselina Description

Based on the popular Asellina restaurant from New York, Cucina Asellina brings artisanal, affordable, Italian home cooking in a warm, contemporary setting to London. Inspired by the traditional flavours and textures of simple Italian cuisine, Cucina Asellina's ethos is reminiscent of the humble Mediterranean kitchen.

Cucina Asellina takes inspiration from the original Asellina Taverna in Pompeii, and the legend of Asellina herself who was regarded as a female pioneer of Roman hospitality. The all day dining menu has been created by Executive Chef Marco Porceddu and is full of classic Italian

dishes available for breakfast, lunch, dinner, with the last food order at midnight.

The menu features small and simple antipasti plates, traditional pizzas and flatbreads from the wood-burning oven, and the well-priced menu celebrates a range of fresh home made pasta produced on site daily.

Cucina Asellina’s array of signature dishes includes wild mushroom, fontina & spring onion pizza (£10); old-fashioned square spaghetti with pomodoro, fresh basil and olive oil (£9) and saffron strozzapreti with prawns, spinach & butternut squash (£14). The carefully selected menu features antipasti and cichetti including stuffed cerignola olives with roasted veal, parmigiano & semolina crust (£7). Classic Italian desserts are also served including the traditional tiramisu, affogato and gelato, as well reinvented dishes such as passion fruit cheesecake with raspberry ice-cream.

The wine list includes a robust selection of over 50 wines from various regions of Italy as well as international offerings. The cocktail menu includes classics such as the Negroni, Bellini and contemporary creations including the ‘Contessa’ made with Hennessy Black Cognac, Crème de Cacao and orange bitters. Cucina Asellina also serves refreshing specialist beers including the Menabrea and La Rossa Moretti.

The design, from Foster & Partners, mirrors its sister venue, Ristorante Asellina, in New York City, with rich terracotta walls, black metal lighting frames surrounding high-top tables, and an earthy polished concrete floor. Copper filament bulbs fill the two-story, 90 cover restaurant with a warm glow, highlighting the raw white oak slats that pattern the ceiling.
