Donna Sofia sees Highbury's Da Mario deli opening its first restaurant

Over the many, boring weeks of lockdown, we spent a lot of time on our daily prescribed walk going past the old Dear Pizza spot on Highbury Barn, wondering what new restaurant was opening there.

Now we know - it's Donna Sofia - an Italian restaurant and pizzeria from the folk next door at Da Mario deli. They're serving up a range of antipasti, pasta, mains and pizzas.

On the menu you'll find:

  • Toasted sourdough with Colonnata lardo and artichokes
  • Carpaccios of salmon and swordfish
  • Ravioli Girasole filled with spinach and ricotta
  • Tagliata with rocket and parmesan
  • Plus a wide range of pizzas

They're currently working on an all-Italian cocktail list and over the next month, they're hoping to open a terrace space at the back as a wine bar which will also serve up cheese and charcuterie boards. If the produce is anything like they sell next door at Da Mario's it'll be excellent.
