Osteria Tufo - New Italian Restaurant opens in Finsbury Park
14 November 2013
For a “Taste of Italy in the heart of Finsbury Park” you only need travel 100 yards from John Jones to Fonthill Road’s new Osteria Tufo restaurant. Run by Paola and Morris, an Italian Couple with over 20 years of experience working in the London Italian restaurant scene, Osteria Tufo is their first business venture as a couple and is set to be a wonderful contribution to the local area.
The menu changes daily depending on the season and what fresh food is available, reassuring customers that they will always receive great produce. Typical dishes available include Seared Tuna with fennel and citrus dressing, Maccheroncini with asparagus and a cream of pecorino cheese sauce and a Fillet of Beef with balsamic dressing and rocket. Prices range from £9 to £16 for a main course, which is very reasonable considering their attention to detail and quality. The pasta is of course homemade, and the good news is this is also available to take away!
Due to popularity reservations are not available between 7 and 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, which just goes to show that this small family run Italian is becoming a hub for the local community. Osteria Tufo is yet another example of the brilliant regeneration taking place in north London’s Finsbury Park, along with Park Theatre and our new Arts Building opening in early 2014!
