Lina Stores, the iconic green-and-white Italian deli turned pasta restaurant, is expanding again
Starting life as a deli in Soho way back in 1944 and becoming a beloved institution, Lina Stores has been on the expansion train over the last few years, opening a fresh pasta restaurant on Greek Street just around the corner from the shop back in 2018 and then a massive deli and restaurant in King’s Cross in 2019, followed by an international outpost in Tokyo and two more London locations, one in the City and the other in Marylebone.
Now Lina Stores is heading south for the first time, opening a two-floor, 80-cover restaurant close to the Common, taking over the old St Clair site. The new spot will be serving lunch and dinner from Weds – Sun, plus breakfast on the weekends, and you can expect plenty of Lina Stores classics on the menu, with dishes including:
- grilled squid with chilli & agretti
- ricotta gnudi with aubergine, tomato & ‘nduja
- malfadine with asparagus & parmesan
- caramel gelato bignè with salted caramel & chocolate
There’ll also be plenty of Italian vino on the drinks list so if you’re looking for a plate of fresh pasta and a glass of wine in Clapham, this’ll be the place.
Stay in the loop…
