"Authentic Italian cuisine" is coming to Muswell Hill, promising to bring a contemporary twist to generational recipes and an extensive fine wine list that is sure to impress. 

Owner Andrea Cassola will open Attimi restaurant at 240 The Broadway on Wednesday, May 26. 

Andrea previously worked as the operational manager of Italian restaurant and wine bar Calici in Belsize, and was inspired to open his own restaurant. 

The high-end 45-cover restaurant is awash with a calming palette that is accentuated by eye-catching textiles and features such as an exposed stone wall. 

He said it aims to bring a “touch of Mayfair” to Muswell Hill, “although it is not casual, it is not quite fine dining but offers a perfect in-between”.

“The dishes that we present to our customers are high end but at an affordable price. We want to become the restaurant where you can have that nice meal at a fair price point,” said the 45-year-old. 

Executive development chef Matteo Berengo, who works as part of the team at Michelin-Guide featured restaurant Enoteca Di Buttrio, will be creating the menus at Attimi alongside Andrea and his head chef.
