"DON LUIGI are proud to announce their launch of ‘ITALIAN FOOD WEEKS’. The anticipated event will showcase mouth-watering Italian street food from the 17th of February until the 27th, and the pop up restaurant will be held at STAGE 3, an exciting and trendy venue, located at 291 Mare Street in London.
DON LUIGI is a new creative street food business which aims to fuse the convention of street food trading with delicious dishes that originate from Italy. The concept of street food means you can experience the traditional flavours of Italy at your convenience, in a fun and modern setting.
This unique dining experience is established by three Italians, currently living in London, who seek to present their culinary heritage in an innovative way: “We’re passionate about our culinary history and excited to share these wonderful dishes with a new audience. We also create delicious dishes for dinner parties and love representing the true flavour of Italy!” (Alessio De Laureto, business manager)
Their menu features a variety of original Italian dishes which range from their refreshing Fried Calamari Cones to BBQ Arrosticini Skewers, (succulent mutton skewers which are cooked over a Charcoal BBQ and accompanied by sourdough bread soaked in extra-virgin olive oil and rosemary roasted potatoes) to their delicious Pesto Lasanga. What is more exciting is that this unforgettable menu is so reasonably priced, ensuring that no dish is priced higher than £9!"
