So why is it only now that we are becoming more and more familiar with La Storia Restaurant on Musters Road?
Read the story behind this authentic family independent restaurant in West Bridgford – with pictures and video.
As an authentic Italian restaurant and bar, they have certainly developed a reputable name for themselves in the short time of being open since August 2016.
With a new seasonal Summer Menu that launched on Tuesday 9th May, it is definitely all go at the moment.
So where did it all start?
Being a new venture for owner Anton Sarricchio, his roots lie firmly within Italy, specifically where his grandparents originate from; Accettura, Southern Italy.
Anton said: “I once went round to my nonno’s house and I caught him whilst he was picking some fresh spinach from his garden. It was enough to feed about 10 people but he told me it was just for his lunch, washed down with some of his homemade red wine. Not bad for an 89 year old and perhaps the reason for his longevity.”
Whilst putting great emphasis on authentic Italian cuisine, you will find dishes from all over Italy.
Anton loves the fact that Italy is so vast in flavours and cooking techniques: “The very best thing about owning an Italian restaurant is the ability to choose from hundreds of different dishes that are worlds apart from the usual Pizza and Lasagne… not that they aren’t amazing it must be said”.
Also, keeping true to Italian tradition, everyone must try the ‘Eat Like an Italian’ –
5 courses for £28 which gives the perfect opportunity to sample many different dishes from the menu… you will definitely be leaving full!
La Storia are also committed to supporting local, independent West Bridgford businesses.
Their fish comes fresh from Paolo’s on Melton Road; their meat from Les at Rutherfords Butchers on Abbey Road and fresh fruit and veg from The Fruit Basket.
“We like to keep things local and I think it is crucial that we as a community stick together in doing so. These guys are amazing at what they do and it doesn’t take long after tasting their produce to see that”.
Anton and the team are putting in the foundations to what promises to be a very busy summer coming.
Make the most of their daytime offers as they are very impressive and great value for money! Menus at foot of page.
