Don’t miss your guide to the coolest new restaurants in London

scarpettaWhen it comes to lunch in a hurry we’re all guilty of choosing the same standard sandwich or limp salad from the closest chain we can find. Well that’s all about to change, as Scarpetta has opened its doors on Cannon Street, serving up fast fresh Italian food that is perfect for a delicious midweek lunch.

Scarpetta is a combination of lunch on the go and chilled out midday dining, with a few seats scattered around to offer a little escape from the office.

Chose from four fresh pasta options each day, all hand made on site and ready to be boxed up to eat ‘al desco’. This is the best take-out fresh pasta you can find anywhere in London at lunchtime. Satisfying sandwiches are miles apart from their supermarket cousins and the crisp salads that are made daily with authentic Italian ingredients are knock-out.

It’s easy to see why this place is so popular already. The nduja pasta (otherwise known as ‘melting sausage’) is a tender spicy dream, with al dente pasta and a rich spicy sauce. The sandwiches are all freshly toasted for an unbeatable crunch, filled with amazing ingredients such as thinly sliced porchetta, topped with melted Italian hard cheese.
