We are Seriously Italian and we are here to make it easy to try Local, Seasonal, Ethical and unmistakably Italian food.
We started in 2008 by selling our fresh pesto at London Farmers Markets. We loved working next to the real farmers so much, we started making lasagne, ravioli and gnocchi “field to fork” using seasonal British produce directly from the farmers next to us.
And of course our pasta is made mostly by hand in small batches using traditional methods and bronze dye – we are Seriously Italians after all. Want to know more? Watch our story on BBC.
Food tastes much better when it is fresh, and it’s difficult to find local aubergines in winter. Seasons give us variety, the joy of expectation and something to look forward to. Food would be boring otherwise.
Being local is very important to us, so much so that everything we make was inspired by British growers and farmers trading next to us at Farmers Markets. Most of our ingredients are pretty much field to fork. The lovely vegetables and herbs we use to make pesto, lasagne, ravioli fillings and gnocchi are delivered to us directly from a family farm www.tedsveg.co.uk. They grow all their produce free of chemicals and are proud participants in Planzhero’s plight to eradicate wastage.
We try our best to use the most sustainable and recyclable packaging available for fresh food – all our packaging is 100% recyclable. Our production is run on 100% renewable green energy and for deliveries we’ve partnered up with brilliant zero emissions ZED couriers. We only use free-range beef from Woodwards farm and our eggs come from free-range hens in Sussex.
Our food carries our culture, our knowledge and heritage that we bring to our cooking – that is what truly makes it Italian. And, yes, a sprinkle of Parmigiano Reggiano on top, just to avoid confusion.

Without Claudio there will be no food, as simple as that. The heart of our kitchen, he is the one that makes sure everything is as good as gold, just like he is.
Seriously restless creative force and forward thinker, Gio is always busy making plans and thinking of something new to do. A modern hopeless food romantic.
The voice of reason and our operational guru. Nothing would probably get in or out of our kitchen if not for Nat’s tight grip on the stirring wheel.
