Pastore Pasta is an authentic Italian eatery based at downmarket_ in Hackney Downs Studios, serving ancient grain pasta, made with the best of British ingredients.
Expect antipasti such as Einkorn arancini, Spenwood, lemon thyme, Aubergine Caponata with fresh mint and La Latteria burrata with fresh sorrel. Pasta dishes include the classic Spaghetti Vongole, Oxtail Ragu pappardelle with grilled radicchio and Crown Prince pumpkin pici with seeds, chilli and sage. For dessert the Torta di pere and Tiramisu profiteroles promise not to disappoint.
Pastore is the brainchild of Jake White and Olly Wadham and their long-held dream to open an eatery centred around the best of British produce. They met in 2016 whilst working at The Berkley’s Marcus in Knightsbridge and quickly bonded over their passion for simple, seasonal food that’s accessible to all.
Lockdown gave them the push they needed to open Pastore Pasta and embark on their very own solo adventure. From humble beginnings, the duo began cooking from a shepherd’s hit in West Dorset for a summer of pop-ups and street food.
