and Italian Coffee
It’s no exaggeration to say we at Scarpetta are all about Italian Authenticity and that means “made exactly the way it is in Italy”. We strongly believe there is much more to pasta than flour and water and there is much more to an espresso than the need for caffeine!
Our pasta doesn’t come from the factory floor but it is made fresh every morning from the skilled hands of our very own artisan pasta makers, Italian pure masters in their craft. Our style of pasta originates from the regions of southern Italy, where food and agriculture are truly embedded in people’s sense of identity and belonging.
We bring products sourced directly from the farms, mills and roasteries that we have known from our childhood.
Bringing such traditions to the heart of London and sharing our passion and love for such genuine products are the vital constituents that have driven the foundation of Scarpetta. Scarpetta itself represents a moment of joy. It is how Italians define the gesture of taking a piece of bread and wiping your plate clean to enjoy every last drop of sauce on your plate. It simply represents how Italians enjoy every moment in life and pasta is no doubt one of its greatest pleasures!
Scarpetta’s founders are long-time friends Uberto Jasson D’Oria and Patrick Philion. Both Italian and food lovers, their vision is to create an Italian casual fast-food concept that guarantees genuine quality, authenticity and a real Italian experience. Scarpetta focuses on combining London’s fast pace with Italy’s artisan culture and simple way of creating delicious food.
Uberto Jasson D’Oria
Uberto Jasson D’Oria is the driving force behind Scarpetta’s operations. Growing up in his mother’s farm in southern Italy made him a self-confessed food romantic, and true appreciator of Italian artisanship. Ever since stepping foot in his newly adopted home in the UK Uberto has been on a quest to integrate the traditions of Italian cuisine with London’s fast-paced environment.
Patrick Philion is just as serious about good food as he is about business on the back of his experience in Investment Banking and love for fine dining. He oversees Scarpetta’s financials and communications knowing first-hand the high demands and preferences of London City’s workers. Patrick grew up in Parma which he says is simply “food heaven”.
DID YOU KNOW…
OUR DURUM WHEAT FLOUR IS THE HIGHEST IN PROTEIN CONTENT. OUR FLOUR IS FRESHLY MILLED UPON ORDER USING GRANITE STONE MILLS AND AT LOW TEMPERATURE. IT REACHES US FRESH SO IT RETAINS MAXIMUM FLAVOUR AND NUTRITIONAL VALUE.
Scarpetta aspires to prepare fresh, traditional Italian food using only high-quality and healthy products such as locally sourced Italian grains and heart-healthy olive oil made directly in selected family farms.
For years, pasta has unjustly suffered from a fattening and high carb image. We’re here to tell you how untrue that is and how Mediterranean diets, based on balancing nutrients rather than excluding one or the other, are the healthiest and most effective in the long run. It’s no coincidence Italians have the highest rate of consumption of Pasta in Europe but also have the lowest obesity rate!
Our menu changes with the seasons and offers freshly made pasta dishes, as well as piadine, focaccia and ciabatta sandwiches, healthy salads, low-fat soups and a wide selection of fresh bakery delights and homemade desserts.
As Italians we also pride ourselves in making the best tasting coffee in the world. The smooth like silk texture and aroma of an espresso or the perfect creamy froth layering the cappuccino is an art. At Scarpetta we make sure every coffee is made with the same love and passion as done back home in Italy!
Our Pasta does not come from the factory floor but is handmade fresh every morning before the very eyes of our customers.
Our Pasta is made with just flour and water (no eggs!) following the authentic Southern Italian approach where Pasta is simply an art which passes on from generation to generation.
We work directly with mills from Southern Italy to have fresh, unprocessed flour with no preservatives. This allows us to have the highest quality Semola as no one else in London.
Our sauces are made fresh and change regularly every week! This is clearly done to always have you excited about cleaning up your plate with a proper “Scarpetta”.
There is no doubt Italian Coffee is the best in the world. Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte are all Italian names and this is for a good reason.
Our mission is to bring Authentic Italian coffee to London and nothing else. Locally roasted coffee is not Italian coffee and it is far from being so.
We have developed our two very own blends (Portofino and Vesuvio) with a historic Roastery in Florence to offer an extraordinary premium Italian coffee.
The sweet and delicate flavour of our Portofino Espresso has a full lasting taste on the palate that will keep you wanting more. This is how you drink coffee in Milan.
The Vesuvio Espresso is a rich and full bodied coffee showcasing the characteristics of the authentic Espresso from Naples. Strong and bold.
