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 of days gone by.
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!
