Trullo, the Italian restaurant at Highbury Corner in London which opened in June 2012, has a menu which changes daily and focuses on fresh pasta, delicious antipasta, marinated cuts of meat and fish on the flat-top grill, all offering a variety of flavours and textures in Trullo style.
Spread over two floors, the emphasis is on using the best ingredients, whether it’s fish from Mersea Island, caught in the morning and cooked that same afternoon, their pick of the best vegetables from Italian and British markets, or the 35-day hung Herefordshire beef that makes the famous beef shin ragu. With the exception of the cheese and salumi plates, everything on the menu is made at the restaurant each day, from sourdough bread to pasta, pastry, ice cream, sausages and ricotta.
Trullo offers a variety of carefully crafted cocktails, both classic and proprietary, taking influence from Italian flavours and ingredients, and is designed to work perfectly with the menu, alongside the regional Italian-only wine list. A range of aperitifs can be enjoyed in advance of the meal, whilst there is also a selection to accompany, complement and follow the dishes. Featured cocktails include Negroni (gin, vermouth and bitters), Sbagliato (Campari, vermouth and Prosecco), Paperol (Prosecco and Aperol), Espresso Martini, Old Fashioned (bitters, whiskey and citrus) and Prosecco Cocktail.
Prices range from £6 to £8.50 per cocktail.
Aesthetically the design has an intimate feel – upstairs is light and spacious, whilst downstairs has exposed brickwork and dark nooks and crannies, with a cocktail bar taking precedence at the front of the restaurant. The downstairs area can seat a maximum of 40 people, caters for tables of up to 12 people, and can be hired out for private parties.
