Gotto Trattoria from Mele e Pere opening in Hackney

The people behind the successful Mele e Pere in Soho are moving eastwards, getting ready to open a new trattoria in Hackney called Gotto.

Apparently, the word gotto is "an expression in Veronese dialect which means going out for a bite and glass of wine friends." With that in mind, they're trying to marry the two worlds of an Italian trattoria - but one that feels very much like Hackney.

On the food front, the Italian menu will feature their home-made bread, pasta, ice creams and desserts as well as using both British and Italian ingredients. They'll have a daily changing seasonal menu on offer - and while it will regularly change, the sort of dishes you can expect are:

  • Octopus polpette 
  • Burrata from Locorotondo
  • Paglia e fieno pasta with pheasant ragu
  • Agnolotti with asparagus and cimbro cheese   
  • Surrey farm T-bone steak alla fiorentina
  • Goats milk ice cream with fresh cherries

And there will be weekend brunch menu on top of that too.

As for drinks, a speciality will be their home-made vermouth which they'll have on on tap, as well as craft beers, Italian small-producer wines and cocktails. As for the place itself, it'll seat around 70 with some alfresco canalside seating too - and they'll have a graffiti mural which will be a big feature.  

Gotto Trattoria will open 16 May 2016 at Canalside, Here East, London E20 3BS. They'll have a soft launch from 16th - 22nd May with 50% off food. For more, follow them on Twitter @GottoTrattoria
