Stretti joins Sharrow Vale
Stretti, a new traditional handmade pasta shop, has opened on Sharrow Vale Road.
Owner Elena prizes traditional cooking and the Slow Food movement. Originally from Piemonte, in northwest Italy, Elena founded Stretti to share her heritage and to cater to a need where mainstream supermarkets fall short.
Founded in the 80s by Italian activist Carlo Petrini, the Slow Food movement aims to offer sustainable alternatives to mainstream fast food. The movement claims around 100,000 members across 150 countries.
Stretti is in good company on Sharrow Vale Road, which has a vibrant reputation for supporting independent eateries and other businesses.
Having opened on May 1st, the new business is already attracting buzz on social media. You can find them at 388 Sharrow Vale Road.
