NOW OPEN: Il Cudega, London Fields

Now open in London Fields is Il Cudega, the new deli, wine bar and restaurant (or ‘eco-gastronomia’ if you’re more acquainted with Italian!) offering an array of Italian dishes and produce from the northernmost region of Lombardy.

Created by Italian-born Hackney resident Giovanni Brighi, his Milanese business partner Luca Gaggioli, and head chef Paolo Eslebani who joins the team from Brescia in Lombardy, Il Cudega promises to offer a truly authentic Italian culinary experience.

Il Cudega features a café for sit down meals and a deli for take away produce and freshly prepared meals to enjoy at home. There’s also a standalone Focaccia and Espresso bar for those who really want to live the Italian dream (and get a caffeine kick that will last them a lifetime).

Open for breakfast, brunch and lunch seven days a week, this new pocket of Italy is guaranteed to make you want to hop on a plane to the real thing quicker than you can shout Bellissimo!
