Fratelli’s Pastificio

Reasons to visit Fratelli’s Pastificio: the energy and chance to feast with your eyes on the rich colours made from fresh ingredients. The sassy humour of the proprietors adds an extra Italian flair and the cool vibe surroundings of Tiffin at the Yard provide next-level ambience. Matt highly recommends whatever the Ravioli special is, along with the well-cooked and wonderfully seasoned Beef Ragu. He would also say yes to all three brilliantly executed desserts, if it didn’t make him sound so greedy.
