The Story of Italian Street Kitchen
My name is Isabella and Italian Street Kitchen is my restaurant.
My family has lived in Rome for generations, so I’m about as Italian as you can get! We’ve always been in the restaurant business, and I grew up sitting in the dining room while Mamma and Papa made the food. Almost as far back as I can remember, I was waiting tables and chatting to our guests.
Over the years, I’ve seen how things have changed. Today, Italy is vibrant, cosmopolitan and full of hustle and bustle. Of course, people still want amazing Italian food, but they want it in a more relaxed setting than the traditional restaurants from my childhood.
That’s why, when I turned 30, I decided to open an Italian restaurant that people my age could really connect with.
My vision was to have a space that pays homage to the lively eateries of Italy’s side streets. A space where people could watch the chefs in the kitchen and smell the incredible aromas of quality Italian food. A space where Italian food traditions and contemporary dining experiences intermingle.
And so Italian Street Kitchen was born.
Inside and out, we embody the spirit of Italy. I like to think of ISK as my kitchen on my street – and I’d love for you to join me for a meal!
'Made in House'
Translating to ‘made in house’, Fatto in Casa is the celebration of making fresh pasta in house every single day; something I’m very proud of at Italian Street Kitchen.
We work through the early hours of the mornings to produce the extensive range of delicious fresh pastas that you can find in the Fatto in Casa section of our A la Carte menu.
The creation of each one has been inspired by my belief that the best Italian cooking utilises traditional recipes that are enriched with modern culinary techniques.
Our Italian Food Ethos
For me, the best Italian food combines modern culinary techniques with authentic recipes passed down through the generations. That’s why our menu is designed to showcase traditional classics as well as modern dishes with an Italian twist.
From wood-fired Italian style pizza to fresh pasta, antipasti and small plates, each and every dish is lovingly hand-made just like my mamma and papa used to.
Underpinning all our food is quality Italian ingredients. Throughout my travels I’ve met purveyors in Roma, Napoli, Sicilia, Venezia and regional Italy – and this is where we source premium stone-ground flour, tomatoes, cheeses and produce that you won’t find anywhere else on earth.
So come in and experience real Italian food at Italian Street Kitchen.
